    Magikarp's total base stats are 50 points lower than Chansey's HP base stat alone. They're not even in the same ballpark. And I know Quagsire isn't everyone's benchmark for decent stats, but it's still a fully evolved mon with one or two good uses and it has lower total basestats than Chansey. Chansey also has a typing and movepool that go very well with its base stats. Altogether it's questionable whether Chansey ever needed an evolution or was strong enough to begin with. That's never been a question with Magikarp.
