You can raise the ultimate Pokémon!

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!

What kind of game is this?

  • 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!

Plot and gameplay

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump takes place in Hoppy Town, where people train Magikarp and compete to see whose can jump the highest. The player can train one Magikarp at a time; when it is lost or reaches its maximum level and retires, the player must fish for a new Magikarp.


  • Mayor Karp
  • Roddy Tackle
  • Man of Mystery
  • Flop Hoppington
  • Little Boy
  • Little Girl
  • Unnamed ghost

Magikarp patterns

Magikarp come in a variety of patterns, with more becoming available as the player progresses through the game and reaches certain milestones that cause Roddy Tackle to offer increasingly better variations of the Old Rod. These patterns, and the earliest rod that can catch them, are listed below:
