The .5 speed is literally wasted on him, so were talking about +1 base stats vs +2 to a base stat.
Yeah, I forgot about that one. If it was rare he'd be decent but I would never waste a stone on him since, like you said, the others are easy to obtain in better breeds.
I don't share the same contempt you have for #3 breeds. I avoid them whenever possible but I think the pet and its moveset are more important most of the time. My #3 Mirror Strider outperforms my #9. She has more power which makes her hit harder and heal more. I don't find her breed to be a handicap at all. Now if it came in a #4 or #8 that would be a different story. I wouldn't pick a #5 because I don't think speed is that important to this particular pet and I wouldn't want to lose the other stats. It's all relative to the pet and what breeds are available to it.
