Types of Battles
In Pocket Mortys Multiplayer mode, you can battle both bots and other trainers like you. In addition to wild Mortys that will respawn and roam around the various dimensions, there will be trainers that walk around that you can challenge.
You can easily tell the difference between a bot trainer and a human trainer because the bot trainer will never run, will have an automatically-generated username, and all of their Mortys will be from the dimension you are in.
You can also battle human trainers without being in the same dimension as them by adding them to your friends list. Note: You won't get XP for battling friends.
Battling in Campaign mode is very straightforward. If you wish to battle, you must first enter a randomly generated dimension via the Citadel portal. Once inside, you'll find a random distribution of wild mortys, trainers, and one "Rick" trainer.
Types of Attacks
There are several different types of attacks in Pocket Mortys: Standard Attacks, Buffs, Debuffs, Poison, Paralyze, and Absorb.
The standard attacks are the aforementioned Rock, Paper, Scissors, and Normal types, and these deal damage to the enemy.
Pocket Mortys follows a simple type effectiveness system:
- Rock is effective against Scissors, but weak to Paper
- Paper is effective against Rock, but weak to Scissors
- Scissors is effective against Paper, but weak to Rock
- Normal is neither effective nor weak against anything.
It's recommended that you keep this in mind when choosing your Mortys, and to have a diverse team for fighting other trainers.
If an attack is effective, it will be "sensational" and deal 2x damage. If an attack is weak, it will be "pathetic" and deal 0.5x damage.
Poison is a special attack that adds a "poisoned" modifier to a morty, dealing damage after each turn. It is a useful way to slowly wear down a Morty's health over time. The only way to remove a poison modifier mid-battle is to use a Poison Cure or Pure Curum. Poison modifiers are automatically removed after battles. Note: Raid Bosses are immune to poison.
Paralyze is another special attack that adds a "paralyzed" modifier to a morty, sometimes preventing them from performing an attack. The only way to remove a poison modifier mid-battle is to use a Paralyze Cure or Pure Curum. Paralyze modifiers are automatically removed after battles. Note: Raid Bosses can be paralyzed.
Your Morty Deck
You can have up to 3 Morty Decks containing 5 Mortys each to use in battles. Only one deck can be active at a time, selected at a Morty Storage building.
For Raids, we recommend having two debuffers, a paralyzer, and two attackers.
