as a gym leader( a real life one not a fake or videogame one), I breed magikarp because at level 20 they become gyarados. what do you not understand about a pokemon, that struck fear into a water type gymleader? a pokemon that know dragon type moves, in order to easily get one, you need a magikarp. that is their only use, to reward you with a gyarados for being batient.
here is a good tip for leveling a magikarp,
step one: have magikarp as first pokemon in party and enter a battle
step 2: battle with your strongest pokemon, by switching pokemon, before you attack. this way magikarp gets exp.
step 3:???(pretty obvious, but if it isn't, this step is repeat
step4:gyarados

There's a faster way, give exp. share to magikarp... challenge elite four. even faster use rare candy until it evolves then start ev training.

All Pokemon are there for a reason. Lugia is for protecting the ocean, Ho-Oh has something to do with rainbows... It takes a bit to realize that even Magikarp has a purpose. That purpose is... to be the underdog Pokemon. There's always an underdog to make something more fun. It's a fun challenge to train him without other Pokemon, and, people need someone to feel bad for in Pokemon. I'm guessing that Magikarp is the most highly abused Pokemon because it struggles in battles. Magikarp, is there for a rather different reason than other Pokemon, but it's a good reason that makes the game what it is. What would you do without Magikarps? No challanging Pokemon, not underdog that becomes a beast... Magikarp will always have a great purpose, so find it!

In the games, magikarp on its own will accomplish nothing unless it is hacked, or is Lv.100 fighting a Pokemon Lv.25 and under. The only moves it learns are bounce, tackle, flail, and splash. There are MANY better Pokemon to chose from. In the anime, it is usually useless, although sometimes it is pictured as strong (such as in "Ya see we want an evolution" it beats up Ash's pikachu [ash uses a pikachu and calls himself the best???] and still doesn't win). Conclusion: Magikarp is not useless if you evolve it, or hack it.
