Celebrate April Fools with a Splash!
It seems the Pokémon Company has a sense of humor. The Wild Area has now shifted and is now flooded entirely with Magikarp, none of which are able to be caught! All in all this is a great prank to pull on the community at large and has already garnered lots of laughs from various creators out there. Even Joe Merrick had to come out and state that this wasn’t a joke on his end and was actually a prank by TPC instead.
Yes this is clearly an April Fool’s Joke, by TPC not me
Yes, the raids actually have nothing but non-catchable Magikarp
No, I’m not fooling you

That said, this is a great time to grind for EX candies and TRs since these Magikarp bring some fairly good drops along with them. So let’s get to grinding trainers and enjoy this event while we can!
