Yeah yeah yeah your Pokmon’s CP might be through the roof, but have they got rhythm. The official Japanese Pokmon has come good once again, delivering an amazingly heartfelt, stirring and emotional ditty that’s all about why Magikarp is the absolute greatest.
The song comes two years after Slowpoke was immortalised in a reggae-style number that I still cheer myself with to this day. I’m not sure the Magikarp song – which revels in how the much-loved water-type Pokmon is the number one weakest in the world – reaches the same highs, but it’s a treat nevertheless.
It does make me wonder who’s up next for the musical treatment in the Pokmon line-up. If Psyduck comes out with a shoegaze anthem I’d be first in line to snap it up.
