Best Way to train pets?

Pet Battles
I just started pet battles this afternoon, I battled through some of Kalimdor's pet trainers. However after 8 levels or so I have decided I want to change my lineup.

Is there an easy way to level pets up? Or do I just have to grind through random critters
Best way to to just capture pets and add them to your line-up. There are many pet types that have different levels (ie: 1, 8, 15), so by "trading up", you will get your pet back. This is for outdoor battles.
I considered that, but I have specific pets I want to add to my lineup like my Lil'Deathwing
The fastest way is the Tramer Quests where you fight NPCs outside of that find an area where lil'Death can shine and murder murder murder. AFAIK There's no great spots for grinding magic typed wild pet so you won't ever really get Death's abilities to do extra damage. So just find somewhere and start grinding
I much prefer battling in the wild to fighting Tamers. Why? Partly because I'm not sure if I get poke-dollars, er, gold from winning against Tamers.
Well what I do is just have 2 powerfull undead 25's.

Then go pet battle stuff in pandaria, switch out ur low level after using a move and /%%@%*!*# the wild critters.

important part---> let undead die before finishing last critter, rez, kill critter, undead dies, all EXP which is like 800ish wil lbe sent to the low level pet.

This will get un into the high teens easy.

(also do this near a town so u can rez ur critters every few battles of course)
Thanks for all of the advice guys! I guess my only other question is if there are any really good pets I might focus on or think about catching to add to my team!

You should make your own thread instead of necro'ing this super old one. Read the other threads and visit warcraftpets.com and other pet resources for help.

What Vixie meant to say is that you need to speak to the Battle Pet Trainer in Stormwind. After you learn Pet Battling from her, you'll be able to level your pets, as well as capture wild ones.
Oh, character level 10. Thought she meant pet level was 10.
Fastest way to level up pets is by fighting the fire pandaren spirit tamer, provided you didnt finish the quest, you can keep fighting it for phat exp. on average with exp buffs, saffari hat, you get a pet from 1-25 in 4 fights.
Most people will tell you to level via pet battle trainers.

I myself use the wild pet battle method. Have one pet you're trying to level with two 25 pets, at a high enough level to not get one-shot by whatever you're battling. Attack once, then switch out.

I had a bunch of level 14-16 pets this morning, and I used that method while I was farming for rare pets on Isle of Thunder.

To be honest, the trainers are probably more efficient, but I feel more productive this way, since I just go anywhere that I need a rare wild pet of and level pets that are appropriate.
This is a "for later" suggestion once you have a good collection of pets.

So far the fastest way I have found if not making use of placing alts is a mix of wild and tamer battles:

1. For pets below level 10: Wild battles against 24-25 level enemies. 1-4 battles to level 10/11
2. For pets above level 23: Wild battles against 24-25 level enemies: 1-4 battles to level 25
3. For lowest level pets that are at least level 10/11: Safari Hat + 25% Food Buff + 50% food buff. Kill all pandaria tamers (Regular and spirit), then all Northrend and Cata Tamers until buffs run out.
4. For highest level pets that are 23 or lower: Safari Hat + 25% buff. Kill all pandaria tamers (regular and spirit), then all Northrend and Cata Tamers until the 25% buff runs out.

However, that system assumes you have enough pets to kill all the tamers quickly (check the 5.4 guide at warcraftpets.com to see what is fast).
