Pokemon GO April Fools Event Could Spawn Only Magikarp [Rumor]
Niantic may hold an April Fools Event that features Magikarp spawn only day. An avid Pokemon GO player presented this theory and his supporting evidence.
Magikarp Spawn Only Day
Reddit user Dangles believes that Pokemon GO developer will hold a Magikarp only spawn day on April Fools. The theory seems far-fetched but he did present some supporting theory for this "foolish" idea.
In the past, the developer held a Pikachu medal event which allowed players to catch more of them. It also unleashed a lot of Ratata for the Tiny Medal. Dangles believed that Niantic wants to give Pokemon GO players a chance to earn their Fisherman Medals by releasing tons of Magikarp in the game. He also thinks that April Fools Event is the time this theory is likely to happen.
He also presented a table showing a number of Silph Road users who caught a lot of Magikarp but only a small percentage were eligible for the Fisherman Medal. It seems only very few players in the list were lucky enough to get one medal for every five Magikarp they caught. The others were not so lucky to get that much. The Fisherman medal is only awarded for big Magikarp.
