Here’s the first batch of details about the new mobile game Pokémon: Magikarp Jump

Pokémon: Magikarp Jump is available in Italy right now

Players start off by being introduced to Professor Karp, who will introduce the world of Pokémon

Professor Karp will give you a rod to capture a Magikarp

When you capture them, each Magikarp will have a level, as well as a Motif and an Individual Bonus

Bonuses can be something like boosting experience to train by 100%

Each Magikarp has a maximum level, the first potentially being Level 11

After you capture the Pokémon, you can feed it a myriad of Berries and then take it on a training regime to level it up

You can then take it with you on missions

In missions, you can earn Diamonds and Pokémon to Support Magikarp in missions

First mission gives Pikachu as Support or 25 Diamonds

Missions put you against other Magikarp and you have to see which Magikarp jumps the highest

After the first mission, you get 100 Diamonds and 5 Fresh Water bottles and 2 Super Potions

Oran Berries give +2 experience and Sitrus Berries give +9

At least 20 different kind of Magikarp to collect

Buy Berries in the shop

Berry options open up as your character levels up

Purchase different training methods

Buy decorations for your Magikarp tank which have various bonuses

At a certain level, your Magikarp will increase in size

Sometimes find balls in the water that contain things such as money

Microtransactions: 50 Diamonds: £0.9, 250 Diamond: £4.99, 550 Diamonds: £9.99, 1,200 Diamonds £19.99, 2,150 Diamonds £33.99

Sales that happen periodically containing bundles of items

Refresh time to wait before you can go on another training mission is 30 minutes

For each level your trainer levels up, the Magikarp you catch can get to higher levels

For example, a Level 2 will allow you to catch Magikarp that can get up to Level 12

At random times, Manaphy will swim past

Tap Manaphy and a festa will happen where many Water-type Pokémon will swim by and more berries will drop down

After each world you get a badge and the game will save an image for you to share about your victory

Currently 6 badges to collect

For the first world, you get 6 Coins and 25 Diamonds and you unlock Pikachu as a friend

Pokémon you can unlock as support are Pikachu, Charizard, Snorlax, Slowpoke, Litten, Rowlet, Popplio, Piplup, Meowth and Bulbasaur

Piplup, Meowth and Bulbasaur unlock as you complete other worlds, the rest require purchasing

Level up their strengths with candy

Pikachu initially gives a PM+5 bonus to your Pokémon in battle

When you have levelled up your first Magikarp, you’ll get the No Fishing bonus item which gives you a bonus

As your Magikarp is max level, you cannot return to the tank to feed it

You must continue on until you lose

When you lose, your Magikarp is released into the wild

It will sometimes come back in the background but you have to capture a new one and begin the world again

You keep the badges you earned already
