Cheeky Kid is a true-blue casual gamer. Whenever he's not watching anime or reading manga, chances are he's mindlessly playing games.
Hey you, I know the reason why you're here. You're here because you've been frenzied by the Magikarp Jump game, and so now you're looking for some useful tips and tricks to get you drifting without hitches. Don't worry, I've got you covered!
This is a "Magikarp Jump Tips and Tricks Guide" made absolutely just for you! You might find something valuable here, but the opposite might also be true. But then, that's for you to decide. For now, hop aboard and see if you can find something helpful. Jump high like a Magikarp and drift through the incredible heights!
1. Skip Everything
Whether you’re trying to pick a training regimen for your Magikarp or you’re out to compete at the League, you can skip everything! That’s right, it makes no sense to waste time just waiting for the training regimen roulette to turn or waiting for the boring, repetitive commentary at the League to end. It is actually for these reasons that the “Skip” button exists.
The “Skip” button is readily available and just waiting for you to tap on it anytime you want. Now, don’t be shy—skip the non-essentials and tap that button.
2. Always Snag the Glittering Object
By glittering object, I mean the glittering thing in Event No. 12, otherwise known as “All That Glitters.” Believe me on this, it’s worth taking the risk in this event. If you’re lucky, you’ll get a decent amount of precious Diamonds. If not, then you will be left with trash and a little waste of energy. The worst-case scenario isn’t that bad at all, so go snag that glittering object the moment you see it.
3. All Decorations You Have Are Always In-Effect
This is one of the most important tips from the Trainer Tips Board on your pond. In exact words, it says: “The effects of any Decorations you’ve gotten will always be active—even if they aren’t placed in your pond!” Simply put, you don’t have to display your Decorations on your pond just to enjoy their effects. The moment you own them, their effects will automatically be in play…forever!
With this in mind, just go all-out decorating by putting the Decorations you want on your pond. No one will stop you, I assure you.
4. Beware of Pidgeotto
If there’s someone you could slap the word “villain” all over in this game, then that would be—Pidgeotto! Yes, Pidgeotto is your Magikarp’s worst enemy. There are two ways you can encounter it. One is through Event No. 5, otherwise known as “Out of Nowhere.” And the other one is by recklessly making your Magikarp jump on the surface of the pond.
Pidgeotto is definitely hungry, and it’s out to turn your Magikarp into sushi. Always be careful!
5. Keep an Eye on the Trainer Rank Experience Bar
The Trainer Rank Experience Bar is not just there for you to know your rank. In fact, you can use it as a guide to perfectly time your training and League challenges. How to do this? Well, you have to wait until the bar is almost full. By doing this, you can make the most out of your training and league challenges whilst waiting to claim a perfect fill of Training Points once you rank up.
6. Turn On Notifications
If you’re really serious about finishing this game as quick as you can, then you definitely have to turn on the notifications. By turning on the notifications, you will be notified whenever you get a new Training Point. And by playing whenever the application sends out a notification, you can make the most out of your time and progress faster and effectively in the game.
7. Gyarados Is Useless
Oh, you’re one of the people who thinks Magikarp is useless. Well, in this game, that is not the case! As a matter of fact, the most useless Pokémon here is Gyarados!
Gyarados may be strong and big, but this game is not “Gyarados Jump.” This game is Magikarp Jump, so the whole spotlight is on Magikarp. There are various ways to evolve your Magikarp in this game—intently or inadvertently—but I do not recommend it. Gyarados can’t participate in the League challenges so…useless, it is!
8. Don’t Think and Just Take that Poké Ball
I’ll say it again: “Don’t think and just take that Poké Ball!” Still don’t know what I’m talking about here? Well, I’m talking about the Poké Ball in Event No. 3, otherwise known as “Is It Treasure?” I’m not trying to be cruel to Magikarp here, but the thing is—taking that Poké Ball is super worth it!
Despite the fact that the Poké Ball might be a masquerading suicidal Voltorb, there’s also a decent chance that the Poké Ball is actually a treasure trove full of golden coins. So there you go; it’s up to you now whether you’re prepared to risk your Magikarp’s life in exchange for overwhelming riches or not.
9. See the Whole Pond
Not many players know this--especially beginners—but, you actually have the option to see the whole pond on your screen. Default view would be just a portion of the pond; but, if you pinch out on your screen, you’ll see a whole new expanded world. Congratulations, now you’ll be able to see all the food, sunken treasure, and a whole lot of other stuff in plain view and ready for you to reach.
10. Claim Rewards by Getting Achievements
This is another one of the not-so-obvious features in the game. Did you know that you can actually get rewards just by carrying out certain tasks in this game? They’re called achievements, and your goal is to achieve all of them. By achieving certain mastery ranks, you’ll be rewarded with a lot of valuable stuff such as coins, diamonds, and support candies.
11. Training Results Are Always Random
I see you’re busy training your Magikarp. What is that? Are you saying that you want to find a way to make your Magikarp do better and yield “Great” and “Amazing” effort results? Well, it’s sad to say, but all Training Results are always random. You could tap on your screen tens or hundreds of times while training, but trust me, nothing will ever happen. Results are always random and there’s nothing you can do about it.
12. Manaphy Is Your Friend
Manaphy is the blue, seafaring, water-type Pokémon that seemingly likes visiting your pond. And you know what, Manaphy is your friend. So whenever you see it coming by your pond, act fast and tap on it. By tapping on Manaphy, it’ll summon a whole squad of other water-type Pokémon, which in turn will give you a lot of delectable food. This is a big JP-grabbing experience for your Magikarp so be sure not to miss it.
13. Try to Balance Your Food and Training Regimen Upgrades
You don’t really have to follow this, but I’ll say and explain it anyway. So what did I mean by saying “try to balance your food and training regimen upgrades?” Just as it means, balance the JP you get from your food and training regimens. If one gives out 1000 JP, then all the others should be upgraded in such a way that they all give 1000 JP. I know it’s kinda gimmicky, but at least you don’t have to get annoyed or depressed whenever a low-yielding food or training regimen pops up during feeding or training. With this method, all (if not, most) of the food and training regimens will be giving you nearly the same amount of JP.
14. Challenge the League Even If You Think You’ll Lose
This is the greatest tip of all: Challenge the League even if you think you’ll lose!
Not only will you build a lot of determination and confidence by learning from your defeat, but you’ll also get some coins by losing. Although the coins rewarded after losing are a bit less, they still add up to a significant amount. Besides, if there’s nothing else to do, then competing in the League regardless of whether you’re strong or not will actually give you more things to earn than things to lose.
Believe me, you’ll lose nothing but an hour’s worth of League Play in exchange for some coins and the possibility of triggering a beneficial event.

@Shyron LOL. I don't know whether to take that in a good way or in a bad way; but well, positivity is ruling me today so I guess I'll take it in a good way. By the way, are you playing Magikarp Jump as well? How's your progress? It's so fun, right? :D
