Rick and Morty season three has started!

Did everyone watch the new episode Sunday night?!

To say I was excited is an understatement. I made a special trip to the store to collect a cart of candy and snacks in celebration. After eating the four hundredth Butterfingers, it all becomes a blur. Luckily the episode was already over and I was racing around like a chicken with its head cut off. I was maniac—I shouldn’t be allowed sugar. Really though, can Sunday nights get any better for television—Game of Thrones then Rick and Morty!

If you missed the show on Sunday, then you can watch the new episode this Friday–August 4th–on Adult Swim at 9 PM central time. New episodes will air Sundays on Adult Swim at 10:30 PM central time.

Now, in honor of Rick and Morty season three starting, I want to talk about the Rick and Morty phone game—Pocket Mortys. The first thing you should know is it’s free. The second thing you should know is it’s Pokemon meets Rick and Morty. I quickly decided this was a game worth trying when realizing these two things. The game is available for both Android and iOS and can be found in your app store. Also, these are exciting times for Pocket Mortys! Earlier this month they added a multiplayer option and in celebration of their new season, are releasing weekly updates for multiplayer.

Okay, so what is Pocket Mortys about? Well, the game starts out in Rick’s garage when a second, Mysterious Rick appears with his own Morty. The Ricks battle their Mortys in classic Pokemon style. After winning the battle you follow Mysterious Rick through his portal and end up in a place that looks exactly like the Pokemon world. Pretty soon you are tricked by Mysterious Morty into a portal that leads to the Council of Ricks, where your portal gun is confiscated. The only way to get it back and go home is to defeat the six head Ricks that run the place. However, you can’t battle these guys until you prove yourself by collecting badges.

Battling needs no explanation to anyone who’s played Pokemon. The battles are fairly easy. Morty’s battle, you take turns attacking one another until one reaches victory or you capture the other Morty.

There are three Morty types: rock, paper, and scissors. These types are exactly like the rock-paper-scissors game. For instance, if you’re facing a rock Morty, you’ll want to fight him with a paper Morty. You can see Morty’s battle type from the image next to his name. Now, the aim of the battle is to knock the other Morty out in a daze. However, you can also capture a Morty instead, by using Morty Manipulator Chips. Instead of putting the Morty in a ball like in Pokemon, this chip sinks right into the flesh of Morty and he will follow your Rick around after that. You can only have five Mortys following you at a time. All your other Mortys will be placed in Morty Day Care at the Citadel of Ricks. The day care is pretty cool, in that you can combine two of the same Mortys to become a better Morty. Morty evolution!

Other than winning battles, the bigger aim is to collect badges. You do this by defeating other Ricks in battle. You can collect as many badges as you want. The Ricks are always located on the platform in their specific dimension. Sometimes you’ll have to face other trainers before getting to the Rick battle, sometimes you can just head straight to the platform.

There are some side games. One being the Morty Games. You get to pick a Morty from a list and throw down tournament style. If you win, you get a trophy and a Morty Token. The token can be exchanged for a special Morty not found anywhere else in the game.

Another fun side game is crafting items. You do this by adding together particular items to create something new. Around the Citadel there are quite a few people who will give you a quest to make something for them. You’ll get a little reward for completing each one.

If you want to check out a very useful guide then go read Junkie Monkeys’ Ultimate Pocket Mortys Guide here: http://junkiemonkeys.com/the-ultimate-pocket-mortys-guide/

He has a lot of information, including a guide for crafting items. If you rather figure all that out on your own, don’t click the link!!

Another great Pocket Mortys source of information is the game’s wikia: http://rickandmorty.wikia.com/wiki/Pocket_Mortys

There are thorough lists of quests and Mortys there.

Multiplayer_SJE

Okay, let’s talk the new multiplayer. This was just added July 5th, although they had people beta testing it since May. With multiplayer you get to create a username and pick out a trainer avatar. Next, you get to pick out a Morty from a choice of three. Bet that sounds familiar to a lot of us.

There are four worlds. The first is open to level one and up, but the others require you to do some leveling up to be part of.

Multiplayer has some cool things you can’t find elsewhere. For instance, Mr. Meeseeks! He wants to show you ads, haha. Although you’ll get a daily reward if you do it! There are also exclusive Mortys in multiplayer. Lastly, while the new season is airing there will be weekly updates the day after a new episode (including new avatars and Mortys)!

LikesAndDislikes_SJE

Well, I love Rick and Morty and this provides me a good dose of them in between new episodes. I also like Pokemon, and so this game ticks my boxes. It’s easy to understand and get the hang of, the graphics are the same as the tv show, and overall it’s a pretty amazing phone game. The humor from the show isn’t lost. Those poor battling Mortys keep on complaining about how messed up it is the whole time they are attacking one another.

What I don’t really like is that the multiplayer is a completely separate thing from the single player. You’ll have to start a brand spanking new in multiplayer, no matter what you got going on in single player. Also, multiplayer is all about PVP (player versus player) and nothing else really. I wish there was more interplay between the single and multiplayer. What also sucks, is all these new updates have made the game buggy. The game freezes, it can take a long while to log in, and PVP battles can crash the game.

Though, I can hope with all this recent attention given to the game, that they are working hard to get these issues fixed.

So, is everyone enjoying Rick and Morty’s third season as much as me?

Well, maybe not quite as much as me, I should really control my sugar intake. Anyway, if you’re looking for a new phone game to enjoy I most definitely recommend Pocket Mortys.

I mean it’s a free Rick and Morty-Pokemon mashup, do I really need to say much else?
