starter account and pet battles

Customer Support
Are pet battles not aloud on starter accounts? It keeps saying failed to create pet battle. Im posting this on customer support because I have not read anywhere on the info page about pet battle restrictions. From what ive seen people with regular accounts can pet battle.
Same here also on starter addition, ive looked and found no restrictions, when i try to start a pet battel i get 1 of 2 messages: 1, failed to start battle or 2, battle in progress (nothing happens to me, and theres no else around for it to be fighting)?
Found this thread from few days ago with Bluey response

We are still waiting on confirmation on that - whether it's intended or not.

Since the cost to train was originally more than a starter could have - it really didn't even come up. Now that it's lower, well - we need to confirm what our developers intended.
Thank you, Orlyia

Although, Is the FAQ Final? When did they put it up?

It's now in the FAQ that pet Battles are NOT included with Starter Editions.

https://us.battle.net/support/en/article/world-of-warcraft-starter-edition-account-faq
Players on Starter Edition game licenses have the following restrictions:

Characters cannot exceed level 20, 10 gold, and 100 trade skill ranks
Characters cannot participate in Pet Battles
Chat communication limited to say, party, and whisper
Cannot send whispers unless the Starter Edition character is on the recipient’s friends list, or unless the Starter Edition character is replying to a whisper
Cannot trade, create or join guilds, invite players into a party, or disable experience gains
Voice chat and Real ID features are disabled
Login queues will prioritize players who have full accounts
Starter Edition accounts are not eligible for character transfers
thankyou. this post was really helpful.

EDIT: though I would like it if it said that starter edition accounts are unable to do it when you tried.
