The game is called Splash! Magikarp" and is a literal translation of the original game titled "Hanero!
It'll be releasing sometime in 2017 for iOS and Android in Japan. It will feature the weakest Pokemon present in the fantasy world of Pokemon.

PS4 Free Multiplayer Week Announced for February 17th
Free online multiplayer access begins February 17 at 12:01 AM Pacific and runs to Sunday, February 23 at 11:59 PM Pacific. Players in the European Union aren't exactly being left out in the cold, but they are getting the short end of the stick.
Today, The Pokemon Companyrevealed another Pokemon title being developed for smartphones, this time centering around everyone's favorite flailing, useless fish.
A teaser website for the game comes in the form of a newspaper article reporting on the appearance of mysterious holes in a peaceful town. You might, however, want to set your expectations low, as the game seemingly revolves around none other than Magikarp.
Now we believe that the game will be released in Japan alone. No word yet on an global release. How about one that focuses on the eternally flopping Magikarp?
Although big among gamers, Pokemon really hit mainstream when Pokemon GO launched a year ago. With the mysterious holes very much looking like it is in a shape of a Magikarp.
