As Pocket Mortys released without online multiplayer in the beginning, many people still did not join the online servers. The online multiplayer is an excellent addition to the game and gives, even more, progressed players a new reason to play the game again (or further), as everyone starts with a new character.
However, the online multiplayer works a bit differently from the campaign mode in Pocket Mortys, so let me give you some advice on how to make progress much faster.
What to do in Pocket Mortys multiplayer?
After you have created a new character for the online multiplayer, you will spawn in Mortyland, which is the first of many new dimensions. In each dimension, we can find various shops, healing centers, crafting tables, and of course, Mortys.
Speaking of these little boys, we only stats with a few Mortys in online multiplayer, which are not the strongest too. So, fighting a more progressed player is not the best idea, as you will get destroyed pretty quickly. Before you think of being the best Morty trainer in the multiverse, you should start catching a few Mortys, to build up a solid line-up.
I would also recommend catching Mortys with different types (Rock, Paper, Scissors) so you have a counter to every kind of Morty you face. Depending on each dimension, you can only find specific Mortys. Still, to catch all existing Mortys, you need to unlock all the other dimensions too.
When you have a full team of Mortys and leveled them a bit to make them stronger, you can start fighting against other players that are in the same hub as you. By fighting other people, your character will gain Exp and level up when a certain amount gets reached. By reaching level 5 you can unlock the second dimension, to catch or fight against more Mortys.
Note: If you manage to defeat at least one Morty of your opponent’s team, you will still gain some Exp if you lose the fight. However, if you get entirely demolished and didn’t manage to eliminate at least one Morty, you will acquire no Exp. By fighting players with higher leveled Mortys, you can gain more Exp than fighting weaker teams.
Items and crafting:
In the overworld of each dimension, you can not only find wild Mortys to catch. Sometimes, one of many items spawns in a random location in the hub, which you can pick up. The best things that you can find are loot crates, which contain a few items, and some Flurbos (the new currency of the multiplayer mode).
You can also find crafting stations that are placed around the map, where you can combine multiple items that you got through fights or crates, to craft Serums, Seeds, Batteries, Halzinger, Purified Fleeb, and much more.
Unfortunately, not all of the items are very useful, but only a waste of resources. In the beginning, you can craft serums to heal your team, to keep up your winning streak. But the more you progress, there are only a few items that you really need.
An item that you need the most is the Morty Manipulator Chip, which can be crafted with a Supercharged Battery, a Circuit Board, and one Tin can. These Manipulator Chips are needed to catch wild Mortys, but they only work at low health.
Another great item is the Level Up Mega Seed, which increases your Mortys level by 1. To craft this item, you need to collect one Attack/Defense/Speed Mega Seed. Luckily, you can get one Level Up Mega Seed for free by completing daily missions. I highly recommend trying to complete these tasks, as leveling takes a long time.
Fighting with other Morty Trainers:
Earlier or later, you have to jump into battles to level up your Rick character. So, what are the basics of Pocket Mortys multiplayer battles?
Well, at first, it is crucial to have a full team of Mortys, covering all the different types (Rock/Paper/Scissor). Having similar leveled Mortys than your opponent is also essential, as high-level Mortys can (literally) one-shot weaker Mortys. But still, it is possible to beat a much stronger enemy with weaker Mortys, if you switch at the right time, and use the right moves.
Overall, we can say that fights are not as complicated as they are in Pokemon games. People are very straightforward with their plan, kill the enemy Morty as quickly as possible. Still, if we unlock the second or third dimension, players like to use items and switch between their Mortys more often.
Speaking of this, replacing Mortys with ones that can handle a specific opponent much better is crucial to winning the match (most of the time). If you defeat one of your opponent’s Mortys, it will make sense to switch to another Morty too. There is a good chance that he will pick a Morty that is effective against your previous Morty, but by switching, you can get a clear advantage.

Which Mortys should you use in Pocket Mortys multiplayer?
As in most Pokemon style games, there are stronger characters (Mortys) and weaker ones. For the rock type, The One True Morty is by far the best one, as his stats are incredibly high (total of 440 points). An honorable mention would be Mortox Morty, as his stats are also excellent, and he is easier to get.
When you look for a Morty with the paper type, I highly recommend looking for a Mascot Morty. His stats are pretty nice, and we can find him in the second dimension already. If you already unlocked most of the dimensions, catching a Wild Mascot Morty is probably the best choice you can make. Most of his stats are better than the ones of a regular Mascot Morty.
For scissor action, there is only one Morty that stands out, not only through his design: Mortation Morty. All of his stats are fantastic, with a total of 415 points. However, you need to unlock the last dimension, GF Mortanic, to be able to find him.
Most of the strongest Mortys can be found on the last dimensions, but it is still possible to get them earlier. By trading with other players, you can (potentially) all existing Mortys, so taking a look at the community forum on Reddit is definitely worth it.
Note: To get stronger Mortys in Pocket Mortys multiplayer, you can evolve Mortys by blending identical Mortys at Rick’s day-care. Click here to get a full list of Mortys that you can evolve (and their evolutions).
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. I’m new to Pocket Mortys. What’s the best strategy to start off my journey in multiplayer mode?
Starting in Pocket Mortys multiplayer requires some strategic thinking. First, focus on catching Mortys of different types (Rock, Paper, Scissors) to ensure you have a counter for every potential enemy Morty. Level them up and build a solid team. Think about their strengths, not just numbers. There’s much more depth to the strategy of the game, but this starting point should help you hit the ground running.
2. How important is leveling up in Pocket Mortys?
Leveling up is crucial in Pocket Mortys. Not only do your Mortys become stronger, but leveling up your Rick character can unlock new dimensions full of different Mortys, items, and challenges. So get out there and do some battles!
3. What can I do if I am not able to beat other players in the game?
Never worry if you find yourself on a losing streak. Pocket Mortys is as much about strategy as it is about power. Experiment with different tactics, use different Mortys, try new items and don’t be afraid to switch up your team to find the winning combination. Remember, even a defeat can bring experience if you manage to defeat at least one Morty from the opponent’s team.
4. I’ve heard of Morty Manipulator Chips, but what do they do exactly?
Morty Manipulator Chips are essential items in the game. These are used to catch wild Mortys when they’re at low health. Crafting these chips requires a Supercharged Battery, a Circuit Board, and a Tin can.
5. Is there a particular advantage of having different types of Mortys in my team?
Indeed! Mortys come in three types: Rock, Paper, and Scissors, each with their own strengths and weaknesses. By having different types of Mortys, you ensure you always have a counter for the Morty type your opponent uses. So, diversity in your team can be your ticket to victory!
Remember, every great Morty Trainer started from scratch. Keep exploring, strategizing, and above all, enjoy your journey across dimensions in the multiverse of Pocket Mortys multiplayer!
