Pokémon TCG Pokemon GO Set Preview: Magikarp Line

We''re getting started with cards from and promo cards associated with thePokemon TCG cooperative expansion. This special set will begin to sell on July 1st, 2022 in special, branded products, including an Elite Trainer Box, a Premium Collection, and Tins. It will also showcase many of the game''s most popular topics, including Lures and Gifts. This set will also include artwork that makes it appear as if the Pokemon exists in the real world. Today,

There are quite a few reasons why Magikarp and Gyarados are a significant Pokemon to include in this set. I''m going to share all of my Magikarp and Gyarados memories from playingPokemon GO that might have been helpful:

  • Magikarp was the first-ever Shiny released in the game. This meant, of course, that Gyarados was also released as its evolution.
  • "Evolve a Magikarp" was a fun and controversial task in one of the game''''s first Special Research questlines. During that time, it was alot harder and more of an intense task to earn Candy for Pokemon, as grinding in 2022 is far different than grinding in, say, 2017 or 2018. This task was released on the sixth page of the A Mythical Discovery Special Research which rewarded Mew. This was a big deal, as Gyarados took 300 Magikarp Candy to evolve.
  • Hate it or love it, Magikarp Community Day. The underdog''''s on top.
  • Gyarados itself began to feature a Shiny-capable wild spawn in select events before, years later, it would be a guaranteed Shiny encounter for the Pokemon GO Tour: Johto questline.
