:''"Welcome to the world of Magikarp Jump! The name is Karp. Everyone calls me Mayor Karp, though. I'm in charge here in Hoppy Town, a magical place where everybody loves {{p|Magikarp}}! Everybody raises Magikarp around here. Magikarp is...well... It is a fine jumper, that's for sure! It can jump like nobody's business! Sure, it's famous for being weak and pathetic and utterly useless... Yet it just keeps on jumping! Ya gotta admire that, don't you think? That's why we all love this plucky little Pokémon around here! Here in these parts, folks love to compete to see whose Magikarp can jump higher. In fact, there are eight different leagues you can compete in. But we haven't had a league champion come out of our town in a long while. Even the Magikarp are beginning to lose their motivation! Our Magikarp are more like Tragikarp these days. We gotta do something to fire 'em back up again! That's why I called you here. You're good at raising Pokémon, right? I bet you could raise up a champion Magikarp and bring back our town's pride! We could really use a win around here. It would sure pick up our poor Magikarp's spirits! So, do your best to raise up some fine Magikarp and go for the win in all eight leagues! Now, why don't you show me your Magikarp? I'm sure it's a real doozy! What? Ya don't have a Magikarp?! Well, I never! All right, then. You head along with me."''
;Catching first Magikarp
:''"You see those three [[Fishing|Old Rods]] there? Those are exactly the expert tools needed to fish up the mighty Magikarp! I used to be a Magikarp Trainer in my own day. Boy, did I make a splash back then! And now I'm just a washed-up old man. But I'll get ya started off right! I'll pick out the best Old Rod we got for ya... Here! Take this one! That Magikarp still has some fight in it! Mm-hmm! I've got a good feeling about this! You're divin' right in to become a real Magikarp Trainer! So how's about I show ya how to get your feet wet?"''
;After winning first Friend League battle
:''"You already won your first league battle? I knew I was right to throw you in the deep end! If you can keep up this kind of pace... You might just be the one who'll win all eight leagues for us! All right! Here's your first goal. Go for the win in the Friend League and the Quick League! They're both for beginners. Looks like your own magical tale is about to begin! Make a real big splash here in the world of Magikarp Jump!"''
;After winning first Quick League battle
:''"Looks like you're doing a fine job raising that Magikarp of yours. I bet you're really wishing you could do even more to help it grow right about now, huh? Then, how's about this? From my own days as a top-notch Magikarp Trainer... I'll show ya what my own old pond used to look like! You can use Friendship Items to have other Pokémon lend you and your Magikarp a hand. And Decorations do a fine job sprucin' up the ol' pond! But that's not all they're for. They'll help your Magikarp grow faster, too! Here. I'll part with one of my old Decorations... Just for you, kid. You can check out other Decorations... the Diamond Shop in Town! I've got high hopes for you, my friend! Get out there and make a big splash!"''
;First time Magikarp reaches its maximum level
:''"Oh! It looks like you've raised your Magikarp to its highest possible level! Your Magikarp can't gain any more JP than that—not at your current rank. This will be the final league challenge for this particular Magikarp of yours. Take your Magikarp as far as it can go—seize victory and it will have no regrets!"''
;When a Magikarp retires
:''"Well, you've done a fine job, kid, raising your Magikarp this far! I'd say you've grown quite a lot, too, in raising <Magikarp> up so well. And seeing that <Magikarp> of yours working so hard seems to have lit a fire under the other Magikarp, too! Now you'll be able to train Magikarp up to even higher levels! There's no time like the present. Go and fish yourself up a new Magikarp!"''
;After evolving a Magikarp
:''"What's this?! Your little <Magikarp> went and evolved into {{p|Gyarados}}, you say? Well, congratulations! And condolences, I suppose. Either way, Gyarados can't take part in league battles. That's for sure. But I guess this is yet another valuable experience for you! You can leave that Gyarados in my care. You should look to the future! Go fish up a new Magikarp!"''
