Gen Game Description
1Red, BlueIn the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.
1YellowFamous for being very unreliable. It can be found swimming in seas, lakes, rivers and shallow puddles.

3EmeraldIts swimming muscles are weak, so it is easily washed away by currents. In places where water pools, you can see many Magikarp deposited there by the flow.
