Although Pokemon Magikarp Jump game is super easy to play with, these are tips and tricks you can do to maximize your gain and output of the game.

Tip #1. Try to finish the foods first before going for training. It could be after you eat those foods, your Magikarp are leveling up, so you can save your training points.

Tip #2. Finish your training point before tapping any Pokémon and getting bonus from those Pokémon. It could be after you do training, your Magikarp reach its max level, in the end you can use the bonus from other Pokemons for the new Magikarp of yours.

Tip #3. Tap Piplup first before tapping Pikachu if Piplup is ready to give bonus. Piplup is giving 1 training point every 1 hour 30 minutes. It could be after training, your Magikarp reach its max level, then you can save Pikachu for your next Magikarp.

Tip #4. Tap Pikachu as last effort before going to battle, if you have done previous tips.

Tip #5. Go to battle only when you have done tips #1-4, and keep going to battle if the jump meter is still so much different.

Tip #6. When the jump meter of your Magikarp is close to your rival, go back first to home. With the available coins you get, upgrade your food. Recommended to upgrade your latest food only. Then redo tips #1-5.

Tip #7. You don’t need to use “LP Restore” item to continue play at the league after lose a battle. Max out your Magikarp level to its fullest, then no matter how long the waiting time left for you to re-enter the league, you can just play the league the moment your Magikarp reach its max level.

Tip #8. Do not spend all of your gold coins. Before reaching trainer level 25, be ready with at least 1000 gold coins. This gold coins to be used to purchase and unlock your next more powerful food. After level 25, be ready with at least 2000 gold coins.
