Meet Trevor, our pet Magikarp
Say hi to the weirdest Pokémon game ever.
Pokémon: Magikarp Jump
Magikarp is a famously terrible Pokémon. Yes, with a lot of work it can evolve into a mighty Gyrados, but most players who have encountered Magikarp will be more than familiar with its original, meeker form – a useless, flapping damp squib.
And yet. It is because of its undeniable rubbishness that Magikarp is so loved – adored enough for The Pokémon Company to build a whole game around it. Your task? Raise and train a string of Magikarps to become the highest jumpers in the land. Our current one is called Trevor. Here’s why we’re still playing it:
Gobbling up food is satisfying
Your Magikarp’s home is where alot of the action happens. Swipe to have a look around, tap on the floating food to feed your new pet and, later on, you can decorate the place. Other Pokémon drop by too, which means a boost to your stats.
