Pokémon Jump (Japanese: ミニポケモンでジャンプ Jumping with Mini Pokémon) is a minigame of the Joyful Game Corner in Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen or of the Mossdeep Game Corner in Pokémon Emerald which requires the Game Boy Advance Wireless Adapter.
In the games
In Pokémon Jump, the player uses their Pokémon to jump rope a Venusaur's Vine Whip while trying to keep in sync with other players' Pokémon. Players control one of their jumping-eligible Pokémon at a time. Two to five players can connect using two to five individual systems, each equipped with a GBA wireless adapter.
There is a time limit and the player that scores best by earning the most points wins. Achieving 200 jumps in a singular game contributes to increasing a player's Trainer Card level.
Bonus points are awarded per perfectly synchronous jump with other players, with more points for each player. If 5 players jump perfectly together, an "Excellent" is awarded along with the maximum bonus points. Multiple "Excellent" jumps in a row forms a streak that is tracked in the player's records.
|Synchronized Players||Bonus Points|
According to the clerk, players may enter Pokémon in their party that are about 2'4" or 0.7m or smaller and do not only swim, burrow or fly; however, Pokémon are actually eligible based on a dedicated list that also includes Pokémon that do not fit that specification (such as Chikorita).

In the manga
Pokémon Jump appeared as part of a training method designed by Ultima in order to teach Red and Blue the ultimate moves: Frenzy Plant and Blast Burn, respectively. It was their first of three challenges, taking place in what was referred to as The Path of Jumping (The Path of Skipping in the Chuang Yi translation). During the training, Blue had his Charizard grab Saur's vine and run with it while Red and Blue had to jump rope over it without falling. The task was made harder with the floor sliding backward.
