Blizzard you messed up on pet battles

LOL, I saw the title of this and was thinking "Oh jeez what NOW, why do people keep complaining about every tiny insignificant little thing that isn't 100% tailored to their personal liking".

Thank you for making my day, OP (and Neth too!) :)

We sincerely apologize for any fun you may be having. I will pass along feedback to the designers on your behalf. Again, our apologies. We just couldn't help ourselves.


Will we continue to see updates to the system as the game goes on? I would love to see different abilities for pet families being able to be obtained through quests or vendors, or have the ability to upgrade certain areas of the pet (adjust the speed attribute at the expense of power, etc). :)

Pet battles will not be pet battles until I can get a ball cap I turn around backwards when I pet battle! Give me my hat NOW!


That would be a nice thing to receive in a Sack of Pet Supplies. Let's get this in Patch 5.1, Devs!


Because you KNOW that when ...a person turns their hat around backwards in the heat of battle, the stuff's about to get REAL, am i right?

I was another one of those people that went, "what the heck is this?" "are you kidding me, some pokemon thing? "I'll never play it".

Uh huh, sure. Did a couple of battles my first day. Now I'm about 26 wins into it, 1 rare, 1 unique and a few poor quality captures. Having fun.

They were bad people to design this addictive thing! :P

I think they are a little too grindy but still fun.

Yes. We will be planning additional updates (as they make sense) to the system over time. We'll make sure to share those when we can.

I know this question has probably been asked a billion times, but I've never actually seen an answer. Don't get me wrong, I'm just as addicted and love it (sadly just like the OP), but how are you guys keeping yourselves out of trouble with the Pokemon creators? It's so dangerously teetering the line, that I'm surprised you can get away with it?

As long as you don't make too much out of it. (Not to hate on others, but it is meant to only be a mini-game.)

I know exactly what you mean. I haven'y been concentrating on it as much as others I know and I'm still almost halfway to 1000 battles won :/

I'm at least 99% certain you destroyed me in a battle earlier today. Your yeti was a beast.

I think it's a very original idea and I'm glad they dedicated so much development resources to it over stuff like PVP.

I admit it's fun but.. I can do it on my DS.

Only problem I have in Pet Battles is that it doesn't give me the same 'spark' that battling Pokemon gives me. But it's just a side-game and not the focus of the expansion or anything, so it's alright.

The system is awesome! Though my only complaint is that if you have two wow accounts on the same Battle.net account, you cannot pet battle when both are logged in.. Seems like a petty issue.. but my daughter plays on the secondary account, and this is a big feature she cannot use.. Is there any way around this so that I can be playing Wow, while she pet battles? or vice versa....

Is one of those possible changes increased control over what we can use? The three move pool is nice and all, but not being able to use anything other than the pre-determined two moves in any specific spot really kills the customizability.
