Magikarp Jump

Following months of uncertainty, the smartphone game Magikarp Jump has begun rolling out a release with its first release being in Italy. We will soon be beginning our coverage of this brand new game so be sure to check back for all the information as it comes.
19:11: As you start the game, you are introduced to Professor Karp who will introduce the world of Pokémon and 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 such as boosting experience to train by 100%. Each Magikarp has a maximum level, the first potentially being Level 11
19:17: 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. From there, you then take it with you on missions. In missions, you can earn Diamonds and Pokémon to Support Magikarp in missions. The first mission gives Pikachu as Support or 25 Diamonds. These missions face you against other Magikarp and you have to see which Magikarp jumps the highest
19:20: 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. 19:22: There are at least 20 different kind of Magikarp to collect. You can buy Berries in the shop, but with berries opening up as your character levels up. You can also purchase different training methods. You can also buy decorations for your Magikarp tank which have various bonuses
19:26: At a certain level, your Magikarp will increase in size. You will also sometimes find balls in the water that contain things such as money
19:28: The Microtransactions are as follows:
50 Diamonds: Ł0.99
250 Diamond: Ł4.99
550 Diamonds: Ł9.99
1,200 Diamonds Ł19.99
2,150 Diamonds Ł33.99

There are also sales that happen periodically containing bundles of items
19:29: The refresh time to wait before you can go on another training mission is 30 minutes
19:31: For each level your trainer levels up, the Magikarp you catch can get to higher levels. For example, Level 2 will allow you to catch Magikarp that can get up to Level 12
19:46: Created the Magikarp Jump section. We'll be adding to this constantly over the next couple of days
19:54: 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
19:58: After each world you get a badge and the game will save an image for you to share about your victory. There are currently 6 badges to collect. For the first world, you get 6 Coins and 25 Diamonds and you unlock Pikachu as a friend
20:00: The Pokémon you can unlock as support are Pikachu, Charizard, Snorlax, Slowpoke, Litten, Rowlet, Popplio, Piplup, Meowth and Bulbasaur. Poplup, Meowth and BUlbasaur unlock as you complete other worlds, the rest require purchasing. You can level up their strengths with candy. Pikachu initially gives a PM+5 bonus to your Pokémon in battle.
20:04: When you have levelled up your first Magikarp, you'll get the No Fishing bonus item which gives you a bonus. However, as your Magikarp is max level, you cannot return to the tank to feed it. You must continue on until you lose
20:16: When you lose, your Magikarp is released into the wild. It'll 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

Pokémon TCG - Alternate Cards

A new feature has been detailed for various promotional cards for the forseeable future. From the Mega Powers collection, various cards will now have an A symbol. This denotes when a card has had an alternate print. This will stop the cards from being prevented from being rotated out of play due to having a reprint as seen with the example given of Yveltal-EX being kept in rotation due to the XY150 Promo. Due to this, a card will keep the original set icon, as well as the number, but be denoted by a new letter so, for example, the Mega Lucario EX in the Mega Powers Box will be listed as 55a/111 from Furious Fists rather than as a specific new promotional card. We'll provide a separate list of all these Alternate Cards within our Card Database upon release
