Wow! A shiny Magikarp hasn't appeared in the anime in ages. My guess for one appearing in the anime again after so long is because of the fishing chain feature in the games, were the more successful fishing chains you have, the more likely you'll find a shiny Pokemon while fishing if the chain doesn't break. Just seeing a shiny in the show instead of the movies is good too, I don't think there are that many children who know about their existence too, and from seeing the episode they might try go fishing to find a shiny.

Shiny Magikarp, NICE, I Like Shiny Magikarp, they are Cool, and I Like Magikarp even though they are USELESS, I CAN'T HATE THEM. I Wonder what the Episode will be about with this Shiny here?

Not that many years, we did have Shiny Onix for about a year and a half ago.


Even though I preferably would like to see a shiny of a Pokémon we already haven't seen a shiny version of, though I think it's a great way of promoing the fishinig chain events in the XY games.

Possibly, although there is also a giant golden Magikarp statue in the Ambrette Aquarium in the games, where this episode takes place.

And Shiny Druddigon, even less time ago.

Ohhhh I completely forgot about that statue...

I think it's likely that it's to do both of them at once, the location is perfect too as it's the earliest you can get a rod.

Ya beat me to it!

...Still gonna say it though!

Oh, please let this mean James' sworn enemy, the diabolical Magikarp Salesman, will return! (leaving empty wallets and broken hearts in his wake!)

It looks like they reach Ambrette Town in this episode. I guess Cyllage gym battle will occur before XY30, what a HUGE gap, Ash got his first badge on XY6.

There's a huge gap in the games too, y'know.

I know that, but I was thinking about 15-18 episodes, not over 20, there's still a string of fillers happening in this gap, which is not a bad thing as long as they're entertaining.

I'm hoping we get some fun TR interaction this episode. Even if the salesman himself isn't present, which I think is unlikely, some reference about the species in the past would be appreciated.

It would actually be pretty clever if they somehow were able to make reference to chain fishing for shinies, though I have no idea how they would believably go about doing that. It just being about that golden Magikarp statue is far more likely.

This is an understatement.

I just hope there is actually a Shiny Magikarp in this episode, I mean I wouldn't put it past the writers to trick us.
