Magikarp is the single most useless Pokemon a trainer can have. Its only possible move is Splash, which is entirely ineffective in almost every single battle scenario. Despite this famous uselessness, everyone has an affinity for this useless pocket monster. Now, once you work a Magikarp up to level 15, or collect 400 Magikarp candies in Pokemon GO, this flopping fish can evolve into the powerful and highly sought after Gyarados.
Why am I telling you this? Well, that is because the Pokemon Company has just released a new game which is entirely dedicated to Magikarp.
Available for iOS and Android Magikarp Jump allows aspiring Pokemon trainers to catch, raise, train and enter their Magikarp in various “Jumping Leagues.”
As you can probably discern from the title, the goal of the game is to train your Magikarp to jump higher than other Magikarps
There is more to just raising and competing with your Magikarp; there will be encounters with other Pokemon throughout the game including Slowbro, Piplup, and Pidgey.
After spending a bit of time with the game, it is, as with most Pokemon games, easy to pick up and despite its simplicity, surprisingly addicting.
