Magikarp is a Water type Pokemon introduced in Generation I.

Magikarp evolves to Gyarados starting at level 20.

Magikarp is considered to be one of the weakest Pokémon in the game, as it's CP struggles between 10 and 150. When the CP buff was released, Magikarp still struggles with the max being only 200.
