Pokémon Jump (Japanese: ミニポケモンでジャンプ Mini Pokémon de Jump) is a minigame exclusive to Pokémon FireRed, LeafGreen, and Emerald and which can be played over the Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter. It is one of two minigames included in the Joyful Game Corner, located in Two Island on Boon Island in the Sevii Islands, with the other being Dodrio Berry Picking.
In Pokémon Jump, the player uses their Pokémon to jump rope a Venusaur's Vine Whip while trying to keep in sync with other players' Pokémon. Players control one of their jumping-elligible Pokémon at a time. There is a time limit and the player that scores best by earning the most points wins.
It cannot be played alone and is restricted to Pokémon that are 2'4"/0.7 m or less in height as well as capable of jumping.
NOTE: Even though it requires Pokémon capable of jumping, Metapod, Kakuna, Silcoon and Cascoon are all eligible, despite their obvious immobility.
In the Pokémon Adventures manga
The Pokémon Jump appeared as part of a training method designed by Kimberly in order to teach Red and Blue the ultimate moves: Frenzy Plant and Blast Burn, respectively. During the training, Blue had his Charizard grab Saur's vine and run with it while Red and Blue had to jump rope over it without falling.
The Pokémon Jump minigame is referred to as the Path of Skipping instead.
