Official English Pokémon music video and lyrics for the Magikarp Song

The Pokémon Company has put together an ode to one of the greatest (and weakest) Pokémon of all – Magikarp. Celebrate the infamous Fish Pokémon and sing along to the Magikarp Song below:

The Magikarp Song Lyrics

Totally pathetic, unreliable.
Known throughout the world for being super weak.
Maybe in ancient times it was really strong.
That’s what the rumors say, but they’re probably wrong.
But now it’s so weak, the weakest in the land.
So weak that it’s sad, really really sad.

The weak Pokémon, that’s you Magikarp.
But though you are the weakest, still you’ve won my heart.
Oh, weak Pokémon, my love for you is strong.
Honestly, it’s magical you’ve survived this long.

All it does is jump and splash, jump and splash around.
It splashes up whole mountains, and all the way back down.
Why jump? What’s the point when nobody cares?
It uses Splash in battle.
Nothing happens.
Jumping and splashing, every single day.
Until Pidgeotto… carries it away.

The jumping Pokémon, that’s you Magikarp.
Although your moves are pointless, still you’ve won my heart.
Oh splashing Pokémon, my love for you is strong.
Honestly, it’s magical you’ve survived this long.

Wherever you go fishing, it’s the first you’ll catch.
Even with an Old Rod, you’ll soon have quite a batch.
Cast off in a river, or a puddle, or the sea.
Anywhere your hook is, Magikarp will be.
The slightest current will carry it away.
Anyplace the river bends… that’s where they all stay.

A nibble on the line… that’s you Magikarp.
Right back in you go, because you’ve won my heart.
Thought I caught a bite… but it’s Magikarp.
I could never eat you… because you’ve won my heart.

Its Shiny form sparkles golden in the light.
But don’t be deceived.
It’s still Magikarp inside.
Evolving into Gyarados makes it super strong.
Waiting to reach that level takes way too long.
Did you just buy one at the store yesterday?
“Sorry, there’s no refunds. Please go away.”

The pity Pokémon, that’s you Magikarp.
Although they think you’re worthless… still you’ve won my heart.
The pity Pokémon, Magikarp, it’s true.
At least your lowly ranking… means nothing to you.

Beloved Pokémon, that’s you, Magikarp.
Somehow you’ve turned weakness into a kind of art.
You’re my Pokémon, Magikarp, my dream…
Six matching Magikarp, that’ll be my team.

Beloved Pokémon, that’s you, Magikarp.
Magical and special, of course you’ve won my heart.
The greatest Pokémon, Magikarp, it’s true.
And that’s why I’ve written this love song just for you!
