Level it up. When beating Raids you get a bunch or Rewards including EXP candies as well as Rare Candies. You can use these to level it up.
Even though Magikarp evolves into Gyarados at level 20, this is not the only level it can evolve at. It will attempt to evolve at every level up past 20 up until 100. JohnathanHyde (Expert) - 3 weeks ago
You can also battle with your Magikarp but getting exp for it at level 70 is a pain so using the candies is a lot easier JohnathanHyde - 3 weeks ago

also new to this gen, if you use a rare candy on a level 100 pokemon that can evolve it will still evolve AMicrowave - 3 weeks ago
Just level Magicarp up. Use a Rare Candy or XP candy if you want to do it fast or just have it in your party when battleing.
And no, pokemon at level 100 who needs to level up to evolve can't evolve.
Pokémon using other methods like an evolving stone can though. RayThrust - 2 weeks ago
Yes they can. If a level 100 Pokemon that evolves through leveling is given a Rare Candy(idk aboout XP candies), they will evolve. I'm not sure if its new to this gen, but I can confirm it. GeminiX7 - 2 weeks ago
