BECAUSE MAYBE THE CARD IS MADE LIKE THAT. >:I
It's not that noticeable anyways.
Yeah, I like using Trading card artwork sometimes. You could always ask me if you want a new Karp avy, I could probably find something.
I thank ya for your selfless excitement towards spreading the good will of 'Karp, but trust me Nick, I've got a million avatars of the Holy Lord Magikarp waitin' for use if I ever get tired of this one. :P
... I can assure you I won't replace this one for years to come, either. Probably.
As awesome as it is, it's getting old. A new one would be refreshing.
But avatars do.
