Magikarp is one of Pokemon’s most beloved creations. This guide on Where To Catch Magikarp Early In Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet will tell you where you can catch the awesome Magikarp right near the start of the game, so you can waste no time in powering it through to reach level 20 and become the incredible Gyarados.
In most of the past Pokemon games, catching Magikarp early was always a pain. You had to slog through the story until you received some sort of fishing rod, like the iconic Old Rod, and then find a body of water and fish up a Magikarp. This works fine but if you’re a huge Gyarados fan, spoiler, I am, you want to get this beast up and running as soon as possible. Thankfully, in Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet, you do not need to wait at all. You can catch a Magikarp in the very early moments of the game.
