On February 27, 1996, the Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green video games debuted in Japan for the Game Boy console, titles that kicked off one of Nintendo’s most successful and beloved sagas.
This franchise, which celebrates 25 years this 2021, has gone beyond video games and has expanded with movies, animated series, clothing, card games, and more.
Over the years, Nintendo saw the success of the series and decided to release video games of all genres to increase the variety. That is why we see role-playing, virtual reality, photography, or card games. In addition to console releases, we also find games on mobile devices, the most popular being Pokémon Go.
According to different specialized media, the first pokémon to be designed was Rhydon, since a drawing of him dating back to 1990 was found. Another valid option is Bulbasaur, a creature that is positioned as the number one in the Pokédex.
In turn, Pokémon mythology indicates that Arceus is the creator of the entire Pokémon universe and the one who stands as a divinity. Then, finally, we have Mew, which possesses the DNA to create any Pokémon.
The Magikarp Pokémon is one of the weakest Pokémon in the entire franchise, although Shuckle and Chamsey’s attacks are more vulnerable. Also, Magikarp’s evolution to Gyarados is based on the Chinese legend about carp fish that climbed the Dragon Gate waterfall to become powerful dragons.
Magikarp is not the only pokémon influenced by Chinese mythology, as the initial fire pokémon take references in the Chinese horoscope. Cyndaquil is the mouse, Charmander the dragon, Tepig the pig, Litten the tiger, Fennekin the dog, Torchic the rooster, and Scorbunny, the rabbit.
