"The cost to learn Battle Pet Training has been reduced from 100 gold to 10 gold."

I was wondering when they'd do this. XD
Suckers.
Son of a gun. Should have waited.
I don't really mind it.

My friend, who can only play trial accounts, is pretty excited.
Should have kept it at 100 gold and told the 'trials' that if they'd spend 10 bucks and get like Vanilla, TBC and Wrath all wrapped up, they could afford 100 gold. Free trial doesn't mean 'get all the goodies too." Trial means to try out. Not a way to 'play' the game.
Some people want to enjoy the game but cannot afford it. Sure there a private realms but.. I think those are illegal? I don't know.
Hurray.

Honestly, the cost didn't bother me, but for folks with starter edition and the like, this will be a boon for them.

Well technically since you can play unlimited now, it is indeed a way to play the game.

Technically it's not a trial, it's free to play to level 20, you just have trial restrictions for obvious reasons.
This is lame. Noobs shouldn't get pokemons.
Their reasoning for it being high was pretty flimsy to begin with.

Derp, someone just starting out might think that's how they progress in the game!

Except for the part where it doesn't give experience so anyone with a sliver of awareness would resume questing when they've had their fill of pet battles.
Good. The point people tried to make was that it was confusing and a barrier for newer/poorer players. If they kept it at lvl 5 they should've just lowered the cost. If they wanted the cost, just increase the cap for higher level players.

i didnt even notice.
And then, there's that painful moment when Pet Battles don't function on Starter accounts...
