Recommended Videos

The Pokémon Company has released a brand-new Pokémon game for mobile devices, this time starring the most unlikely Pokémon: Magikarp. In Magikarp Jump, players train their beloved Magikarp to jump as high as possible and beat the competition for the title of League Champion.


You can check out the trailer below.


Additionally, here’s an official overview of Magikarp Jump from its page on Google Play Store.


What is this world coming to?! It’s a Pokémon game all about the weakest Pokémon ever—Magikarp! Anyone can play this simple game in their spare time to create the most majestic Magikarp ever in this official Pokémon app!


What kind of Pokémon is Magikarp?
・ It’s famous—for being pathetically weak, unreliable, and generally useless.
・ It can’t learn any powerful moves—all it does is flop around and splash!
・ When it flops its way too high in the sky, it’s sometimes snagged by the Bird Pokémon Pidgeotto—never to be seen again!
Many surprising events lie in store for this pathetic Pokémon. But don’t worry—it’ll just keep on jumping until it can jump no more!


Here are more features on the game:

  • Simple controls let anyone easily raise many generations of Magikarp
    Tap the food that appears on the screen to feed your Magikarp, or have it complete training to increase its Jump Power! It’s easy to do, and with each generation you raise, the next generation grows even faster!


  • Discover all kinds of Magikarp to show your friends
    In this app, you can fish up all kinds of Magikarp with unusual patterns like calico and polka dots! When you encounter a rare Magikarp, show it off to your friends on your social media networks!


  • Pokémon like Pikachu and Piplup are here to help
    A number of popular Pokémon can appear to help your Magikarp grow. Keep playing to find out which Pokémon you’ll befriend!


  • Spruce up your pond with Decorations!
    Spruce up the pond where you raise your Magikarp. You can make the pond of your dreams, and help your Magikarp grow faster, too!
