Throughout the game, the player controls Rick. The game starts in Rick's garage when Mysterious Rick enters through a portal and challenges the player to a Morty Battle. After defeating him, the player must exit through a portal that takes them to the Council of Ricks, where their portal gun is confiscated. To get it back, the player must defeat the six head Ricks. In order to fight them, the player must first fight Ricks from other dimensions and acquire their badges. After the player defeats them, the last council member turns out to be replaced by Mysterious Rick, who has captured the entire council. After the player defeats him, they will have the goal to catch (capture) each type of Morty.
The concept of the game was taken from the popular "Pokémon" (Pocket Monsters in Japan) franchise. The object of the game is to collect Mortys, battle others (mainly Ricks), and earn badges.
Badges are awarded for defeating Ricks and are the primary indicator of progress within the game. They are needed to battle the council member Ricks. They basically resemble a gym badge from Pokémon. You can earn as many badges as you want, considering you are not restricted from re-entering the portal after achieving the needed amount of badges to complete the game.
Morty Day Care
A maximum of five Mortys can follow Rick at any time. Any other Mortys in the player's possession will be stored in Morty Day Care. Here, Mortys that are the same (e.g. two Blue Shirt Mortys) can be combined. This will "evolve" them into a new version (e.g. Red Shirt Morty). The level of the new Morty will be determined by the levels of the two Mortys combined.
Bootcamp was added to Morty Day Care in the 1.6 update. Three boot camps are available:
- Level 10+ awards ~350 XP and lasts 24 hours
- Level 25+ awards ~2000 XP and lasts 48 hours
- Level 50+ awards ~7000 XP and lasts 72 hours

The Morty Games is an expansion in the game with update 1.4. The Morty Games adds further story to the game through a series of battle events. At the end of each event, one of the prizes is a Morty unavailable anywhere else in the game.
On May 9, 2017 Pocket Mortys official twitter announced they were opening up beta testing for a multiplayer for the first 5,000 people who sign on Android. On July 5, 2017 multiplayer officially rolled out on all devices with version 2.0.
On the multiplayer platform, users create usernames, have a choice of trainer avatars, and start off with choosing three different Mortys, separate from the Campaign. Player levels can be separated by transporting to different worlds for further challenges.

List of Mortys
- Main article: List of Mortys (Pocket Mortys)
The Mortys are broken up into three categories: "rock," "paper," and "scissors." Rock has an advantage over scissors, scissors over paper, and paper over rock. Which is based over the zero-sum hand game Rock–paper–scissors. There are only three exceptions who are not categorized in any type: Morty (the one the player starts off with), Morticia, and Cronenberg Morty.
The Morty the player starts off with has a random dimension designation, so theoretically, every player is playing in a different universe.
Trainers and NPCs

Besides the main Council of Ricks, other Ricks make up the Gym battles. And until the last "Council" member is beat, the only way to return to the Citadel is to beat the Gym leader. (The only other way to return is for all the Mortys in your party to get knocked out. In which case Birdperson with pick you up to take you to the Healing Center.)
- Main article: List of Pocket Mortys avatars
On October 26, 2016 in Pocket Morty's 1.7 update introduced "Rick costumes." Custom avatars that can be exchanged at Salesman Rick as playable avatars. Eventually the avatars were further extended to other characters besides Rick.
|Blood Pressure||10||Attack (Self)||Strong||95%|
While at the Citadel of Ricks, certain NPCs will appear with question marks over their heads. If you talk to them, they will make a vague request for a craftable item. The player then has to determine what item the NPC wants, craft it, and give it to them. Quests carry over between visits to alternate dimensions, and most quests only become available after the player has received a certain number of trophies.
