When training in Magikarp Jump, you can have either a "Good" (1x), "Great" (2x), or "Excellent" (3x?) result. I've noticed that I seem to have more "Great" or "Excellent" results on certain trainings - the tree knockdown one in particular - and nearly none on some, like the sandbag which I've never had a non-good result (out of, maybe, 20 tries); on the other hand, my son has had plenty of sandbag bust-ups.

Is this random chance, or is the 'tapping' or something else I'm doing having an effect on the result?

    And yes, I realize that the N size here is very small, hence the question, since I can't really get good statistics on this myself.

According to serebii.net, "There are also three different tiers of results for each training regime, each giving higher Jump Power values of double or triple the base value, but this is selected at random so you have little control."

I can attest to this. Sometimes I can get 2 "Amazing" ratings in a row and then not get them again for a while. The rating system is likely based on a percent chance per tier but there is no information on what the chance of each tier is.

  • Having seen no better information to this point I will accept this unless/until someone proves differently.

  • Anecdotal evidence: I got an "Awesome" training once when I was Trainer level 3, then did not get another one until Trainer level 17. Once I did get one, I got "Awesome" training four (!) times in a row. Haven't seen it since though.
