You'll also find that the pandaren monk, like so many other pets in the game, has variable stats. And by variable, I mean, they change DURING the fight. Keep your mouse over your opponent's stats and see for yourself. I'd love to see your mouth drop open when a crab's speed magically jumps from 181 to 1581, without having been buffed or activating any special abilities.
I've said it and said it, the system is broken, and should have never been released.
*facepalm* many pets do this. It occurs when a pet uses an ability that "always goes first." the buff wears away once the turn ends.
