I'm about to enter that one tower that "dead pokemon go to" and still don't have any water-type pokemon outside of gyarados (spelling?) that evolved from the fish I bought towards the beginning of the game. How do I catch water type pokemon? This is my first time playing through this game. I searched the board and found nothing. I skimmed through some of the faq and they haven't said how either. I know I'm missing something that is probably simple and is right in front of me. Thanks in advance.

Joke topic? Maybe not, but you need a fishing rode to catch water Pokemon, look for a guy in a straw hat, and he'll ask a question, just say "Yes."

Magikarp is probably better than a caught Kakuna or Metapod.

Plus, in game, Gyarados is a very good pokemon to have that early.

Oh noes! $500! We totally don't end up with about 200 times more in the end!
Oh noes! Magicrap! We totally can't put it in a daycare for the easy training towards a powerhouse!
Oh noes! Getting it earlier! We totally can delay the suffering and fish it later when it's much harder to train!

Gotta agree with gbchaosmaster on this one. I bought the Magikarp on my last playthrough, and it wasn't nearly so bad as I had expected. And once you get it to level 15, it can at least hold its own in random battles, and level 20 comes quickly after that. Use the Water Gun TM from Mt Moon, and Gyarados is a decent water type and strong attacker until you get Surf. Then the gloves are off...

if this was in FR/LG and you had a pokemon with razor leaf and only used magikarp in double battle (razor leaf IIRC hits every pokemon except your own) then i'd say it was a good idea to buy it this early. however IMO it is useless to train a magikarp (when you buy it, is it at level 5 or 10?) like 5 or 10 levels until it actually learns a good move

btw, i dont remember if FR/LG have double battles that early but if it does this IS a good idea but only if you have a pokemon with a move which hits every other pokemon except your own. otherwise this is a very bad idea IMO because of the time wasted in training it

you know, for your claiming to have played the game for several years, you lack a lot of common knowledge.

It is, as some admiral once said, a trap.
