Yes, there’s a canal that runs parallel to the town and a stream that runs through the town. I actually catch more water-type than normal-type.
The Silph Road did some studying that included big magikarp & also tiny rattata
The conclusion: The probability for getting a tiny Rattata is 11.7% and for large Magikarp it’s 14.6%.
I’m on this: 208 caught. 35 are big. That is 16.8%
I still don’t know how to do it… more than 100 CP to be big? Than they have count bad my captures.
You know those useless stats pokemon have? Like weight and height? Weight is the one for these. When a Magikarp is big a small and blue ‘xl’ is noted above the weight. It has nothing to do with cp/level.
SO the only thing you can do i catch em all. There is no way of knowing before hand, unless you let some1 else do the catching and checking
I’m pretty sure it goes by size of Magicarp caught.
Thanks ,so it’s size or weight only… I will note when my phone isn’t light as usual…
This might help clear things up.
