The Pokémon Company’s newest mobile game has just released for iOS and Android devices, and it’s very different from any we’ve seen before. Titled “Magikarp Jump,” this free-to-play title focuses on raising your own Magikarp to make it into a jumping champion, like no ‘karp ever was. So not only does the titular fish have its own song, it now has its very own Pokémon game as well!

Magikarp can be fished from the wild and hardened into jumping machines in this mobile Pokémon journey.
Magikarp Jump features lots of tapping one’s way through jumping competitions, leveling up your fishy partner, and seeing and catching the different varieties of the creature (including its Shiny form, of course). It is sure to be much weirder than most Pokémon games, but it still seems to carry with it the classic charm of the franchise. You can get a look at it in action in the trailer below!

Our Verdict


Eric Zavinski
Hey all! I've been a gamer since I was three. I'm one of those people with gaming so ingrained in them that watching my father play Super Mario 64 is actually my first memory I can recall. I love writing too! I'm writing an original fantasy series that takes place in another universe; it may take some inspiration from some of my favorite franchises. I've been a journalist for a few years, have worked on local and national teams, and have garnered experience assigning stories, editing, writing, interviewing, hosting a television series, running a YouTube channel, and doing other stuff that's more fun to mention in conversation. Bios can drag on. Anyway, I'm super stoked to be a part of the Gamnesia team! Thanks for having me!
