Calculated Risk

I'm ashamed to admit I did this for quite a while before I discovered the retire option >__>;;

  1. First Comment!

      First to say you’re a dumbass.

      “win the medal achievement i am a dumb whit NO LIFE”

      1. Be quiet or i will report you.

      2. Ok that’s a little TOO far.

    2. BLUUUUE SHEEELLL

    3. Why does everyone want to be first? It’s not like you win a cookie or something.

      1. I think it just has to do with the satisfaction of knowing that you commented before anyone else.

        1. Yeah, I guess

        2. ENOUGH WITH THE BLUE SHELLS

      2. that_kid_that_oofs

        Exactly. To win a cookie, you must bake 10 trillion of them. I doubt the people who consistently yell “FIRST!!!” get anything out of it other then a slight satisfaction of having reloaded the page faster.

    4. i was so sad when i lot my 3rd magikarp to those dum pidgeotto!!!

      1. I lost my shiny one to a pidgeotto. *insert sad NukeNucleon face here*

  2. Wait, you mean this is a real game?

    1. Yup. I played it for a while, but got bored.

  3. CONGRATULATION you ARE FIRST what he win johnny??

    well he win the medal achievement i am a dumb whit NO LIFE

    1. looks like someone needs a blue shell,,,
      also, the official name for blue shell is spiny shell, anyone who says blue shell is a NOOB!
      (JK, it doesn’t even look like a spiny shell)

      1. steamcrusader_dumbass

        looks like someone needs a gold shell…
        Stop doing the first, and you won’t get bashed.

    2. Anything else Johnny??

      Why, Yes! he also got a one way portal to live inside of STICKER ST-

      never mind. I can’t. It’s too evil.

  4. CONGRATULATION you ARE FIRST what he win johnny??

    achievement DUMB ON INTERNET coment first on comentary section… what next???

    1. And what did the magikarp win?

      A TRIP BY PIGEOTTO EXPRESS TO GO TO HAWAII!

  5. I am ashamed to say that I DIDN’T know that magicarp would get kidnapped.
    I did it like five times, always getting the fruit and suddenly my karp got snatched away and I stared at my screen in horror for a minute or so xD

    1. I was the same, with this and the pokeball/voltage. Now I’m waaaay more cautious

  6. I did know this, but I wasn’t willing to waste my training points on them!

  7. Actually, you need to train 7 times before you can use the retire option. This means waiting at least 1h 30m before you can retire it (if you have a max level piplup available).
    Besides, retiring through the option doesn’t count towards the achievement for “forced to retire”, and, even if you don’t like the ‘karp you’ve got, it’s more beneficial to max level it since you don’t get the motivation bonus otherwise.

  9. What game is this?
    We need game identifier hinty thingies (and platform and where to get one….). :D

    1. You mean like the tags with “Magikarp Jump” and “mobile gaming”, or last page where the description said “Game: Magikarp Jump”?

      (Sorry if that sounded snarky, but it is a pet peeve of mine to see people asking things that are answered already in obvious places such as the comic itself or the author’s descriptions underneath comic pages)

  10. Follow-up: because I plan to become a master-level carp sacrificer. :D Hoooooo!

    1. It’s called Magikarp Jump and it’s for mobile devices (i.e. iOS/Android).

  11. YOU DID THE RIGHT THING GAMERCAT, IT IS BETTER IF THE PIDGEOTTOS CAN FEED THEMSELVES

  12. You get achievements for having your Magikarps die enough times, and achievements lead to more diamonds.

  13. Magikarp steaks:
    It’s for the birds

  14. There is a retire menu for this game??????

  15. Meh. They’re useless anyway. Might as well feed more useful pokemon…

  16. Birds gotta eat yo

  17. To be fair, it doesn’t happen all that often.
    Not until it snatched and ate up my very 1st Gold Magikarp… ;~;

  18. The Pidgeottos appreciate your sacrifices, GamerCat. When the Gyarados apocalypse approaches, they shall bear you away from devastation.

  19. So does anyone remember that Glitch likes fish? He was even a karp for Halloween once. Heck he had a full team of Magikarp when he first met Gamercat.

    1. One day they became gyarados.
      The next week no one could say what they were doing.

      Because.
      They had

      Destroyed
      Everything

  20. me pasa lo mismo a mi
    Repórtense todos los que hablen español, nuestra era a comensado

  21. Wait, there’s a retire option?

  22. That is hilarious! Hey do you think you could do one on overwatch?

  23. That fluffy waffle

    If you make your magikarp jump over and over again at the top of your aquarium, a pidgeotto will take it mid-jump. It scared the crap out of me when this happened to me. It can only happen one time though :/.

  24. Imagine if it suddenly evolved into gyarados mid-jump (not sure if possible, but it would be hilarious)

    1. They can acciently become a magikarp from one of the events.

    2. I meant gyarados! They can accidently become gyarados via an event. (Which forces retirement and you go fishing again)

  25. To be fair, the button for that menu doesn’t look like a menu button. Especially when there’s a button for another menu. In my case, I didn’t know you could rename your ‘karp.

  26. Glitch would love this game

  27. THE CIIIIIRCLE OF LIIIIIIIIFE

  28. Wait a minute! Why are they taking the karp’ if they are in a tree, that is chock fulll with fruit?!?! THE PIDGEOTTS OF THIS GENERATION HAVE NO APPRECIATION FOR WHAT THEY ALREADY HAVE!!! DO NOT FEED YOUR POOR KARPS’ TO THOSE GREEDY BIRDS, GC DO NOT ENCOURAGE SUCH BEHAVIOR! THEY HAVE PLENTY OF FRUIT IN THAT TREEEEEE!!!

    1. It’s Anti-Pidgey berries.
      Also you can only take two fruits before the tree collapses. Then they wouldn’t have a home.
      DID YOU THINK ABOUT THAT?!

  29. but actually it didn’t count forcebly retire achievement

  30. more like Magicrap. How useless. Haha.

  31. Exactly what happened to me!

    1. ..except I didn’t sacrifice them.

  32. They’re just standing there, menacingly…
