Gameplay[change | change source]

Adopt Me! is about adopting and taking care of different animals. Pets are grouped into 5 classes, based around how common they are and how much you have to pay for it.[5] These groups are common, uncommon, rare, ultra-rare and legendary.[5] Pets grow up from junior to adult.[6][5] If a player has four adult pets of the same type, they can create a "neon" pet, and four neon pets can be combined into a "Mega-Neon" pet.[6] Purchases can be made with the money of Roblox, robux, and through Adopt Me!'s own currency, Bucks. Bucks can be earned by feeding and taking care of your pet.[7]
