    Just released like a splash, a new Pokémon game about raising, training and collecting Magikarps

    In the game you aim to be the best Magikarp trainer and get back the glory of an old city that was known for raising these fishy friends! There you gonna find Magikarp with different patterns and train then to be give their best in jumping!
    It's a free to play game with some in-game optional purchases of itens , decorations and stuff

    More screens and a small covering by @nxwing on next post XD

    Sadly I can't play it yet since my device isn't compatible, but I'm curious for a game like this xD

    I was able to install it so there some screenshots from my game.

    Funny that the name name would make more sense to it's content on the series at all, the attack " Splash" Actually should be translated for hop/jump by the Japanese name, but they wanted to make it look more funny for this Pokémon on the localization, but maybe the translators of this game lost the joke? But this would be different from Mario Run, since he was known for his jumps, or Sonic Jump since he was know for his running ... Wait, what a mess mobile gaming are doing ? :v
    KOIKING IS TH BEST WORST POKÉ \o\ lol

    Are you playing this? share yours screenshots! Just don't give spoiler... if there are some lol

    I think I'll give this a shot later on. I'll post screens of the English ver as well if nobody posts them

    UPDATE: Playing it rn

    Title Screen:
    Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-17-02.png

    Someone greets you just like always:
    Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-18-36.png Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-18-44.png

    Game is self-aware:
    Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-20-33.png

    UPDATE 2: So apparently you use Old Rods to catch Magikarp so you can compete in the 8 leagues of Magikarp Jumping. Yes, you read that right. You feed and train your Magikarp so it jumps the highest.

    UPDATE 3: You earn JP (jump) points by doing the aforementioned activities. You initiate jump battles with other Magikarp trainers. The battles require you to just press a button which will just make your Magikarp just jump in the air. The higher the jump points, the higher the jump. The Magikarp that jumps the highest wins.
    Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-27-39.png Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-28-01.png

    UPDATE 4: IAP are in the game and some ads as well which were visible in the title screen I've posted earlier
    Screenshot_2017-05-24-00-31-16.png

    And that concludes @nxwing special coverage of Magikarp Jump. @OP or anyone else, feel free to use the screenshots I've provided.

    Not there nor on aptoide. I'm on 6.0.1 and it doesn't let me install. And then they complain about people dumping and exploring their apps...

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    Maybe @nxwing can dump it for us :D

    Would be kinda neat if you could transfer your Magikarp to Sun or Moon and it would have the same visual design in that game as you see here (like that grey one with black and white spots for example). The better trained it is in the app, the better its stats would be in Sun and Moon. Silly idea, but it'd be pretty cool.

    It's not silly, and it would be pretty cool, but there's only one Magikarp model in the game.

    2 though in the game right? Shiny and normal? Lack of models isn't something that couldn't be altered in this day and age, just push an update for Sun and Moon that would add more designs for Magikarp for those that would transfer their pokemon from this game to their copy of Sun or Moon.

    I believe they're the same model, but with different textures. If every Magikarp in this game has the same look, then they could actually release a patch/update/DLC for SM with extra textures.

    Oh yeah I assumed that these Magikarp would be the same model just different textures. I mean that's what that picture of the different textured Magikarps was indicating to me anyway.

    Nice coverage! You almost did a review there, you should make it more complete and post it as one! xD would be awesome you can use my screen if you want too xD
    I would edit it on the OP since you let m, but it's just after the main post so It would look doubled?

    I'd be glad to dump it but I'm not currently on my phone right now. I'll dump it later and upload here.
    Maybe you could just mention in the OP that if they want more screens, they should just look at my post? As for the review, I'll try to when I play more of this game :P

    I thought, this sounds like a Flappy Bird clone, but looking at that gameplay it looks even more boring than Flappy Bird :P
