    I have no idea what the non-Magikarp part of this pic is from… a LOTR game?

  2. CelticArbiter on October 2nd, 2008 2:10 pm

    It’s the Witch King from LOTR, yeah.

  3. Orion Fury on October 2nd, 2008 2:12 pm

    If only…

  4. Animedevildog on October 2nd, 2008 2:13 pm

    flail phailed!
    sorry, gotta call them as I lol or don’t lol…

  5. Kuromatsu on October 2nd, 2008 2:36 pm

    I thought Magikarp could only use splash.

  6. Blank-Mage on October 2nd, 2008 2:46 pm

    Yeah, I think that’s why it fails.

  7. PK Fire on October 2nd, 2008 3:02 pm

    actually in silver, gold and crystal he learned flail at level 20 or something above. the thing is that gyarados doesn’t so this pic actually makes sense. it just isn’t very funny. I could feel a smile coming, but it didn’t make it.


    nice try

  8. Fluffy on October 2nd, 2008 3:03 pm

    I found that quite funny, Now magikarp like that would be awesome everyone would want one!

  9. Marzen on October 2nd, 2008 3:07 pm

    People, people, PLEASE. Magicarp uses Splash, Tackle (like level 15) and Flail (level 21 or something). As such, it still works… I for one lawled. And gave it a 5/5, which it deserves for being so random. Who would have thought?

  10. B-mac on October 2nd, 2008 3:07 pm

    I probably would’ve laughed if I knew magikarp could learn an ability called Flail. Oh well.

  11. Aaron Hong on October 2nd, 2008 3:30 pm

    Eowyne summons Merry!

    Merry uses Cheap Foot Jab! It’s Super Effective!

  12. Don on October 2nd, 2008 3:39 pm

    I don’t get it.


  13. MrSunshine028 on October 2nd, 2008 3:57 pm

    I have always wondered why in the Super Smash Brother games the most useless pokemon was goldeen and not magikarp. hmm… but then again it would have been awesome in SSB Brawl that when Goldeen (should have been replaced with magikarp) flop into water and it would evolve into Gyrados and pwn everyone on stage. But the picture eh didn’t do it for me.


  14. AquaLink on October 2nd, 2008 4:04 pm

    magikarp can learn flail attack when it levels up to 30 if you don’t let it evolve. you guys are noobs.

  15. Kreachure on October 2nd, 2008 4:05 pm

    So I’m really the first one to say this?

    EPIC FLAIL 1/5

  16. IvanaBAnonymous on October 2nd, 2008 4:08 pm

    The flail part I get
    the rest……<_<

  17. worksforme on October 2nd, 2008 4:35 pm

    i don’t know what everyone else is complaining about. I actually lol’d at this, and that doesn’t happen often. 5/5

  18. dekuskrub1 on October 2nd, 2008 5:01 pm

    i think this time magikarp is actually useful

  19. dekuskrub1 on October 2nd, 2008 5:03 pm

    i like ur idea with ssbb and evolving magikarp

  20. GRiM on October 2nd, 2008 5:51 pm

    how did people manage to level up a magikarp by splashing is what i’m trying to figure out..

  21. dudemanawesome on October 2nd, 2008 5:59 pm

    @GRiM You switch it out at the begining, then own, then get half exp. then you switch back to ‘Karp and repeat. EASY

  23. Paulrus on October 2nd, 2008 6:19 pm

    For a brief moment, I thought the title said “Mudkip”. 5/5, because I like it.

  24. Smash addict on October 2nd, 2008 6:58 pm

    Are there any smash bros levels with water in them?

    i think ‘carp would get swept into the abyss on the pikmin stage…

  25. Glitch on October 2nd, 2008 7:08 pm


    yeah there are a few

  26. Will on October 2nd, 2008 7:27 pm

    4/5 mainly cuz Magikarp is spelled wrong.

  27. G1drake on October 2nd, 2008 7:40 pm

    *thinking harder*


  28. Rayza B on October 2nd, 2008 8:04 pm

    Reminded me of Hammerfall…

  29. Nick Soapdish on October 2nd, 2008 9:43 pm

    I like it but the fact Magickarp is spelt wrong is just so wrong.

  30. B-mac on October 2nd, 2008 9:54 pm

    Woah, I didn’t even notice that. Magikarp is spelled wrong! FAIL! 1/5!!!

  31. Solar Zero on October 2nd, 2008 11:16 pm

    I see what you did there.

  32. Hunter Belmont on October 3rd, 2008 1:02 am

    thats clever 5/5

  33. Matt Helert on October 3rd, 2008 1:20 am

    OMG old school pokemon status!!!!

  34. Pigeon Army on October 3rd, 2008 2:12 am

    3/5, because Magikarp is spelled wrong, and you do not spell Magikarp wrong on fear of death.

  35. luckydog on October 3rd, 2008 3:27 am

    I lol’d at this. vtw, Magikarp can also use “flail” if it run of moves. Either that or “struggle” I can’t quite remember

  36. Happy on October 3rd, 2008 5:28 am


    Magicarp = An attempt to spell Magikarp, also referencing the term ‘magi’ (or magician).
    Flail = the weapon that the magi is carring, as well as a move that Magikarp can learn at level 30. (Since there’s some confusion, Magikarp was unable to learn Flail in the first generation.)

    As for me, I think it’s amusing.

  37. Shady Auhtor on October 3rd, 2008 11:25 am

    OH MAH GAWD ITS A POKEMON WITH A FLAIL!!! my pants have exploded. srsly. very fucking funny.


  38. Teradohn on October 3rd, 2008 4:18 pm

  39. killercartoons on October 4th, 2008 10:14 am
