While most games on the phone tend to lose their wonder within the first few hours, for me. I can say that I ran my battery dry while playing this game for the first time today. If you are a fan of the Rick and Morty then there is a lot to enjoy about this game. The music that plays in the background are all songs featured from the show. Some that stood out to me were the Tiny Rick “Let me out, set me free” song and the theme song of the show all redone for the game. A subtle, but charming, layer added to the game is voice over work from Justin Roiland for both Rick and Morty, be it a random passing by comment or smack talk to your opponent trainer. The game combines the shows animation and Pokemon design quite well. The maps are vibrant and comical with original character designs from the show. There are 52 different types of Mortys to find and train through your adventure. Each with their own moves to learn with certain strengths and weaknesses.
