I did not use any Lucky Egg, also as you can see in photo below, there is already an additional 50XP from "Great Throw" then I'm surprised that I received a "Bonus" exp from catching a Magikarp.
I tried catching other pokemon again, and there was none.

enter image description here

Where did this "Bonus" exp came from?

This bonus is awarded on each 100th of that Pokémon caught. Source

  • Is there a source for that? I've seen a couple of bonus posts, one for a venonat (which I have definitely not caught 100 of)

  • Besides personal experience, this is the source linked on the possible duplicate question: gist.github.com/anonymous/… (Line 258)

    Thanks. Can't view it at work, but the linked answer is pretty detailed. Might want to edit that source into this answer though :)
