Amazing as my books

This game is really fun it makes you want to work toward something kind of like saving money you’re working toward getting something. When I played with my phone I had this app but I had to delete it because there was too many apps, I did not want to but I had to I was unhappy because I had to delete the app. Reason I like this app is because there’s also a surprise on which one you’ll get (which Magikarp you’ll get). Another reason I like this game is because there is a variety of Pokémon you can get the main one is Magikarp some of the other ones are Pikachu,Osowat, Charizard, and more. There is also a variety of decorations like plushy’s, signs, and a trophy. You can look at your past magikcarps watching their young ones. I really love this game that’s why rated five stars ha ha it’s just like my plushy Wana The Chihuahua I want to keep it forever or my mom I always want to live with her it’s like those things those special things I always want them with me forever but someday they might go, but I don’t want them to go My plushy might rot and my mom she’ll die😭😢.

Love, your family friendly child.

PS can you do me a favor I’d Love if you can help Fish in the lake, pick up litter so they can live, and just be a good person.

Great game full of charm

First off, yes, this IS a REAL POKEMON GAME made by the Pokemon company about the biggest Pokemon meme of all time (other than jelly donuts, sorry Brock.) The game is absolutely ridiculous and it rolls with it, the story is you are a trainer arriving in the town of Hoppy Town (yes that’s the name) where the mayor, mayor karp instructs you that times have changed and the towns Magikarp are starting to get lazy and sad. To help, he asks you to raise a Magikarp and defeat the league to bring the town to its former glory. The graphics are beautiful and charming, you can easily tell this is a Pokemon game from the graphics alone. Gameplay consists of feeding Magikarp food, and taking him to train. Each time you train you lose one out of three training points. Training and eating strengthens your Magikarp. You can then enter it in contests and compete to see who can jump the highest. The bad part of this is that its boring, it’s entirely automatic but it’s pretty satisfying to see your Magikarp grow. Overall, 4.5/5 fun and charming but pretty repetitive. I didn’t even mention all the other features like the solid humor or the various secrets, but what I can confirm is that you’ll have a great time with Magikarp Jump.

OK at first but.....

.....if your not planning on spending any money on micro transactions, after a while the level grind becomes VERY tedious. Currently I’m at Trainer Level 16, and my max Magikarp level is 26. You can usually win one more battle in the league per level up. Which basically means that you pick it up, eat all of your food, collect all of your coins, do your training and the random encounters, then do your battle and random encounters. Generally you will level up once during this play session, twice if you’re lucky. You’ll progress one battle farther, maybe two. So it basically takes you WAY longer to beat leagues than it should. Also, the random encounters where you can lose your Magikarp are pointless. I played it the safe route every time. Also, evolving your Magikarp to the totally awesome Gyarados should be a GOOD thing, not a bad thing. I’m not saying you should get to play the game with your evolved Magikarp, but taking it for no reason/reward and making you start over feels harsh. While there is some fun to be had here, the potential is so much more that it feels like an unfinished game. In short, the game feels like it should be very casual, but it’s actually a hardcore level grind.
