The no-fail guide to having fun with Pokemon: Magikarp Jump

Follow these simple steps

Since it first hit app stores earlier this week, I have been inundated with requests for information about how best to enjoy Pokémon: Magikarp Jump. I can barely go a minute on my Twitter feed without somebody asking me “What’s the best strategy for raising my Magikarp?” or “Should I focus on food or training?” or “CJ, you’re so hot, will you put a baby in me?” It can get tiring trying to answer each and every question individually, so I thought I’d whip up a quick guide for having fun with Magikarp Jump.

Step 1: Press & hold the Pokémon: Magikarp Jump app icon until you are able to grab it.

Step 2: Drag the icon to the part of the screen that reads ‘Uninstall’ or is the picture of a trash can.


Step 3: Let go. When your phone asks you if you want to uninstall, choose the option that will rid your device of the app.

Step 4: Go play an actually good mobile game.


I believe that should cover just about everything you need to know about having fun with Pokémon: Magikarp Jump.
