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!
