Magikarp is a Water-type Pokémon. It evolves into Gyarados at level 20.

Magikarp have a "roasted Magikarp" special texture if they have been struck by lightning. The skin is a paler color that implies being "roasted" and has crosses for eyes. If a roasted Magikarp is evolved, the resulting Gyarados will have a "zombie Gyarados" special texture. Shiny Magikarp cannot get this skin nor evolve into zombie Gyarados.

Magikarp is a pathetic excuse for a Pokémon that is only capable of flopping and splashing. This behavior prompted scientists to undertake research into it.
