While most of the Pokemon can be evolved by feeding a few candies in Pokemon Go, there are some special Pokem from the two-stage Pokemon family which needs about 400 candies for the evolution to take place, and one of these Pokemon includes Magikarp.

First of all, you have to make the Magikarp you want to evolve your Buddy Pokemon. Then, you must start walking with this buddy of yours.

So, the next thing that you can do to get more Magikarp candies is to catch more Magikarp Pokemon. You must know that you can get about three Magikarp candies for every Magikarp you catch. Try to look around the water resources to find a Magikarp because this is a Water Type Pokemon and will most likely spawn in such areas.
If you want to double the number of candies you get for catching a Magikarp, you must feed the Pinap Berry to the Magikarp you want to catch.
Moreover, you can also get Magikarp candies hatched out of the 2 Km eggs. And with the help of rare candy that you can earn as the raid battle rewards, you can increase the count of Magikarp candies you have.
Taking part in higher-level raids will be much more advantageous for the players to collect more of the rare candies.
Another great way of quickly collecting a lot of Magikarp candies is by completing the field Research Quests where you receive these candies in the form of rewards as a result of accomplishing the tasks.
Once you get all the 400 Magikarp candies through these different methods, you can tap on the Evolve Button to evolve your Magikarp and get your Gyarados Pokemon in exchange for it.
This was all you need to do if you want to evolve Magikarp in Pokemon Go. although the number of candies required is quite high, if you use all the methods we suggested for collecting Magikarp candies, you will soon have the required amount for the evolution to take place.
