Magikarp has flawless response to Pokémon Go player talking sh*t

More like Pokémon BURN.

Pokémon fans know that raising a Magikarp takes a lot of patience. Players have to walk around to hatch their eggs, with each one needing a different distance to fully incubate—like 2km, 5km, or 10km. And the fish is pretty useless to your team at first, typically only knowing shitty moves like splash or tackle. But if you stick with your Magikarp, it’ll eventually evolve into the beastly Gyarados.

One player wasn’t in it for the long haul, though. And when he expressed his unhappiness with hatching a Magikarp, the water-type Pokémon was ready with a clapback—a move we didn’t realize it knew. 

Damn, get this guy some Neosporin for this BURN. Alex didn’t even @ Magikarp, but the Pokémon still hunted him down for talking shit.

We hardly need to wait for Gyarados. There’s already a savage on our hands.

This is a cautionary tale for anyone who dares drag Magikarp.
