    Splash! Magikarp | Magikarp Jump (Android/iOS)

    Coming Spring 2017
    The teaser site has a report in newspaper-like fashion, stating that two mysterious holes measuring 90cm appeared in town. According to the 27-year-old fisherman bro, he discovered it early in the morning and was surprised to find the holes with a mysterious shape. Investigations will continue.

    That said, the game is being developed by Select Button.

    Now available in the West
    The Pokémon Company International announced today that Magikarp Jump is now available for download at no charge on the App Store and on Google Play.

    Train your Magikarp to soar as high as possible in Magikarp Jump! The lowly Magikarp now gets its time in the spotlight with this fun app for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Feed and develop your Magikarp to maximize the Pokémon’s jump power to reach new heights. Then compete to see if your Magikarp is the best. Can your Magikarp rise to the level of League Champion?

    During your training, if Magikarp gets knocked out, or retires upon reaching Lv. 20, you’ll start over with a new generation of Magikarp. But not all progress is lost—your new Pokémon will start off a little bit stronger than your last. Keep training every Magikarp until you can make it to the top of the in-game tournament ladder!

    While you’re raising your Magikarp, keep an eye out for Pokémon that want to help you. For example, some Pokémon you encounter will give you food to keep your Magikarp nourished.

    When you do well in jumping tournaments, you can get commemorative photos of your achievement. You can share these photos online and with friends to show the world how well you’ve trained your Magikarp.

    Magikarp Jump also features in-app purchases, where you can spend real money on a variety of things to speed up your training, replenish your food stock, and catch more Magikarp. You can also purchase decor to customize your Magikarp’s habitat.

    guess it's a good downtime game

    Dumb bump.

    I just beat the Heal League. This game has been far more entertaining than I thought it would be. I have all but the last two training and food items at rank 50. Bought Snorlax and Slowpoke with the Diamonds I earned as well as the Aegislash and Exeggutor decorations. Been mostly saving my Diamonds for Pokemon friends because who really cares about decorations?

    I'm rank 34 or 35, and I've been really enjoying it as just a quick 10 minute burst time waster. Getting a bit slower now but I imagine its because theres only 7 leagues and I've beat 5? or its 4 and 6...

    I need to save my Diamonds better, i want my Poke friends

    For reference, I had to hit rank 56 to beat the Heal league. The exp starts picking up though. I'm getting over 3k exp after league matches and the food items can give me over a million JP for some of the later ones on the list.

    At 3 star rating he gives about 50M exp every 4.5 hours (that's about the cooldown with the Starmie Bubbler).

    No more leagues after Expert League 3. Lame. Probably going to be the end of my interest in this game. Upgrading the lowest items from 50 to 75 requires a ridiculous amount of coins. The sandbag training final step from 74 to 75 is 32k coins and started around 1.2k or something. You can imagine the growth from level to level for this...
