We made the call to convert a number of non-capture pets into rare quality pets. We made this decision for a couple reasons. First off, we know that many folks are going to want to use some of their current pets in pet battles. We don't want players to feel like these pets are weaker than the others. At the same time, we don't want to make every single non-capture pet into a rare.

We decided which pets to change based on how difficult they are to obtain. This approach makes sense since it means that more time was put into getting these particular pets than other ones. This fits in with how you obtain a rare through the pet battle system; more time to seek out pets and fight them, hoping for a rare.

We know that we are not going to be able to please everyone, but this list is just a start and I'm sure we will make many updates between now and launch. Look it over and feel free to leave us your feedback. Thanks!

Soooo...does this mean that these pets will be rares in the wild? Not sure if I like this...especially with my Mini Tyrael. They already made it so he wasn't tradable, but to just capture him in the game when I had to go thru a lot to get him outside the game? Kind of a smack in the face...or am I misunderstanding all this? I don't understand this whole quality concept yet lol

No, they just mean that the pets themselves will be rare quality - in other words have very good stats. These pets will not show up in the wild. You also cannot trade pets that you already know, so retired companions such as Mini Tyrael will still not be able to be obtained in that sort of manner.

Ahhh ok thanks! I somehow got lost in the post trying to figure out what was going on (I've missed a few notes on pet battles). Thanks for the info!

On the beta, there were some of these pets that were up on the AH. People who had the items were putting them up. I have to wonder about this.

Are people going to be able to sell the items that were sent to them in the past? I.E. if you make an alt with these pets, and don't use the pet, will you be able to AH the thing you were given? Or is that just a 'beta bug'?

I wish they add Perky Pug. He's achievement-pet, and has an unique, high-quality model.

And is cute. And I want him to be my very best! <3

It's getting pretty close to launch, and we don't know how or if this is going to be implemented. Makes it hard to plan battle teams.
