Magikarp might be a useless Pokemon, but it certainly makes for a tasty snack!

In Japan, "taiyaki" is a fish-shaped cake stuffed with red bean paste or custard. Taiyaki speciality shop Kurikoan has launched totally official Magikarp taiyaki -- rather, "Koiking-yaki". (In Japanese, Magikarp is called "Koiking".)

Priced at 106 yen ($1.24), the treat comes in little bags sporting the lyrics to the character's official theme song

This isn't the first time Magikarp has been turned into taiyaki. Previously, a kit to make Magikarp taiyaki at home was released a while back.

    [Gives one a try only to break my own teeth as Magikarp are mostly bones.]
