Where To Catch Magikarp In Pokemon Legends Arceus
So far, we’ve only found Magikarp in a single location, the Lake Verity in Obsidian Fieldlands. You require the ability to ride on water to reach the Magikarp, there is also an Alpha Gyarados in the area, so watch out for that. When you are riding on the back of your Pokemon you can interact as you normally would. You can throw Pokemon to battle or throw Pokeballs. Magikarp are very docile. They won’t flee or start a fight. They will either just sit there staring at you, or them may come over to greet you.
Either way, simple throw a Pokeball at Magikarp and you’re almost guaranteed to catch it.
