Pokémon: Magikarp Jump

    By jasenyoface,


    “Magikarp, the fish Pokémon. In the distant past, it was somewhat stronger than the horribly weak descendants that exist today.”


    The Pokémon Company with developer SELECT BUTTON Inc. released Pokémon: Magikarp Jump on May 16th exclusively in Apple’s Italian App Store. This means, if your Apple ID’s country is set to “Italy”, you can download this game right now.  Others will just have to wait until it is distributed elsewhere… Or, you could create an alternate Apple ID with the specified country and play this curious game too.

    As its title indicates, the featured Pokémon in this game is none other than Magikarp!  Catch, feed and train Magikarp in order to maximize its jumping power.  Jumping too high may entice bird Pokémon to swoop on your fish.

    If you would like to see what it's all about, head over to the App Store and give it shot. Nintendolife.com summarizes how you can create a new Apple ID if you’re not in the targeted country.  If you decide to play it, reply to this post and share your experiences with us.

    By evandixon,


    (Pokemon Sun/Moon covers 1)

    Pokémon Sun and Moon have been updated to version 1.2, coming with the following fixes 2:

    •  Pokémon being unable to attack and switch when Sky Drop is used and when knocked out by damage done by Spiky Shield.
    • A glitch in Poké Pelago when entering a new month.
    • A rare case where the game ends after using an Evolution item as the last item in your Bag.
    • Scatterbug sometimes not learning Egg Moves.
    • Eggs sometimes being able to be given items.
    • A glitch ending the tournament when pre-registered for an online Friendly Competition (e.g. entry gets canceled or the Battle Teams get unlocked).

    Existing battle videos will be unusable after the update, which is required for online play. It is unknown whether another ban wave is coming, but as always, we encourage you to avoid major save file edits when going online.

    Road to the 2017 Pokémon VG World Championships

    By jasenyoface,



    Pokémon video games are played worldwide.  In fact, as of March, Pokémon X &Y is the top seller for the Nintendo 3DS console by having sold 16.11 million units.  Coming in second with 15.44 million units sold is Game Freak’s latest game: Pokémon Sun & Moon.  Released near the end of 2016, Pokémon Sun & Moon has been the center piece for this season’s competitive battling.

    For months, Trainers all around the world have been attending events such as; Global Link battles, Premier Challenges, Midseason Showdowns, Pokémon Regionals, and the much anticipated Pokémon International Championships to earn enough Championship Points (CP) in order to get invited to the 2017 Pokémon World Championships.  Battles are comprised of teams of four; subjecting Trainers to the double battle format using only the Alola Pokédex.

    With the International Challenges already being a third of the way finished, Trainers are busy refining and analyzing their strategies and possibly their teams before they battle in the 2017 North American International Championships. This is the last stop where Trainers can earn more CP before the Pokémon World Championships.  The World VGC is an invite only event; players that have earned top ranks in each rating zone and have the most CP will receive an invitation. 

    So far we have seen the European, Oceania, and most recently the Latin American International Championships unfold.  Listed below are the talented Trainers that placed first in each class in each event.  Congratulations to you and to everyone that has made it to the top!

    We also require help translating this to Japanese and Korean, to get this information into those communities,

    Thanks y'all!

    Staff Changes & New Site Addition

    By evandixon,

    Project Pokemon has recently undergone a few staff changes. @jasenyoface is now on our News Team and will be serving as a local moderator of the News forums, as well reporting Pokemon-related news. Additionally, @theSLAYER has been promoted to Assistant Administrator, allowing him to continue to work hard to improve the Event Gallery.

    I would also like to bring attention to my latest addition to the site: the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon data reference. It shows information about Pokémon and Moves in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky and Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon (PSMD). What makes this different from other resources out there is that this data shows IDs of Pokemon and Moves, as used by the Mystery Dungeon games, making it very useful for ROM research and making cheat codes (like Action Replay). This also shows some details about PSMD's move growth, showing the minimum and maximum stats for each move. I would like to thank @psy_commando, @Andibad, and @TruePikachu for providing the research I needed to write all of this. Please direct any feedback about the Mystery Dungeon data reference here.

    Writing this paved the way for easily publishing additional resources. Because Project Pokémon is a community, all contributions are welcome. If you have basic web design experience and would be willing to write things for the site (original Pokédexes, tutorials, etc.), please send me a PM or reply to this thread.
