Players who have jumped into Pokémon: Magikarp Jump, the latest free-to-play mobile game from The Pokémon Company, have likely already noticed the game’s wide array of seemingly-random encounters. These encounters, or Events as they are called, only occur after set goals have been reached, and are afterward triggered at random. Many of the events reward you with bonuses like Job Points, Training Points, or special items; however, some can spell certain doom for the player’s Magikarp.

Don’t worry though, we’ve got a full list of every special event and all of their outcomes conveniently compiled below. However, beware that some rewards are random, and not all players will receive the same reward from each event.
