It Me on March 25, 2018:

Your best bet is to get Popplio first, and then save up for Litten. Greninja gives has more appeal early on, but ultimately Litten awards more JP when fully powered (+560%) compared to Greninja (+280%). Litten is cheaper to fully power up (37 candies total); Greninja needs 45 candies to reach full power. If you really want to power level your Karp, get Slowpoke and fully power up Litten. Activate Litten's gift, use Slowpoke for a quick recharge, level your Karp in no time.

Popplio is a veritable gold mine in the early stage of the game. Yes, Charizard throws piles of coins at you, but it doesn't leave you diamonds- Popplio does. Use Popplio as your diamond mine, and keep saving for the shinier companions.

Jake on November 24, 2017:

Use Greninja, then Slowpoke, and then Greninja again to level your karp very quickly

Your Name on September 10, 2017:

I like Greninja

Daniel on July 10, 2017:

Charizard can give candy too

Woofy on July 05, 2017:

Charizard actually can give out Mountain of Coins.
