I have become one with the Ghost type!’


Morty is the boss-NPC counterpart of the eponymous Ecruteak City gym-leader.

Boss rework 2019

Morty was part of the Boss rework in 2019 and was updated at the 15th June 2019. The boss rework was issued and is still ongoing to improve the boss NPCs in general. All reworked bosses are coded in Python and not in Xanascript anymore, which gives new opportunities. Reworked bosses can now have held items as well. One of the biggest benefits is, that the Python script sees when if the server crashed in order to not count a lose in case the player fought against the boss while the server crashed. In such a case, the player can simply re-fight the boss.

The boss rework implies a challenge for players on any experience level who do enjoy doing bosses because of the three difficulty level every not story related boss has, which ensures that bosses are challengable for newer players and also be a challenge for those who have a high Pokémon knowledge. Boss teams are decisively reworked and only contain level 100 Pokémon. EVs and held items do vary among other things — also depending on the difficulty level.

  • Easy: bosses have no EVs and no hold items; as well as a weakened moveset. Consecutive win rewards are also not available.
  • Medium: bosses have 252 EVs in each stat and hold items.
  • Hard: bosses have 400 EVs in each stat and hold items. Furthermore, the player is not allowed to use in-battle items such as Revives.

Challenging Morty

Morty resides at the top of the Mt.Pyre, where he wants to be one with his Ghost pokemons.

Interacting with him will automatically initiate a battle if you have completed the Requirements. If you have previously battled him, it will be a 12-day cooldown time to rechallenge him. In case you should have a playing time under 100 hours, Morty will give you a warning if you are really sure to fight him.

The standard subsets of rewards will be randomized and rewarded each time; however, upon defeating him three-consecutive times, you will get a extra reward on the difficulty level Medium and Hard while Hard gives slightly better rewards.

There is no shiny counterpart of Pokémon rewarded from the randomized prizeset; only the selectable prizes have one, which is 1/4,096 in fractional notation (0.0244%, in percental notation).

All rewarded Pokémon will be initialized at level 20.

Reworked bosses such as Morty have rewards depending on the difficulty level you beat them. As harder the difficulty as more valuable is the reward normally. The exact reward is random generated based on a list of possible rewards and contains at least a money reward. There are three difficulty level: Easy, Medium and Hard.
For extra rewards, the Medium and Hard level have a three-time win streak.
