Pet Breed Survey 2019


This is my second breed survey. The last was in June 2017, and it’s time for an update. This should be considered to be taken at the very start of 8.1. It includes pets up to and including 8.0.

I chose 27 notable pet battlers, who have authored strategies or guides, produced YouTube channels, and been active in battling theory discussions. I downloaded their rosters, using Xu-Fu’s Pet Collection Viewer, without which this wouldn’t be possible, so thanks, Aranesh! I eliminated all pets except Blue 25s, and was left with 26,446 pets.

Looking at the rosters chosen, some things stand out, not least that different people have different approaches to their rosters. Some people don’t bother much with pets they don’t use for battling, and may not even bother to level pets they don’t intend to use, while some level and rarify everything. Some keep their rosters very tight, releasing anything they don’t intend to level, while others retain pets unless they need to remove them for space. Some focus more on breeds for PvP, and some for PvE. Some want to keep only one of each species, while others are happy to keep three of useful pets even when there is only one breed.

The original focus of the survey dealt only with species that have multiple breeds, and may be of interest to people who are wondering which breed of a specific pet they should get. However, some other factoids may also be interesting, and who doesn’t love “Top” lists? :slight_smile:

This question of determining preferred breed in a survey is a litte more complicated than it might at first appear, since there are many generic movesets used by multiple species. For example, the moveset of Rabbit is shared with 12 other species of multi-breed rabbits - Hare, Grasslands Cottontail, and others. Thus, for battling purposes, all of these species are the same, just with a choice of different stats. And so, people will want at least one 357-speed generic rabbit, and may want the higher-power but slower 325-speed, but may not care about the breeds once they have those two. When you see that most Tolai Hare Pups in the survey are B/B, you should not conclude that this is the “best” breed; rather that collectors have so many useful breeds of rabbits already that by the time they got to Tolai Hare Pup, they had stopped bothering, because they will never need to use it. As a further complication, some single-breed species, like Spring Rabbit, may share the same moveset.

To help with highlighting this, I have added a moveset-group description to each species, so that you can see which are generic moveset Snakes, Snails, Beetles and so on.

Many people also keep multiple breeds of some pets. Why? Many species have different breeds that are better in different situations. For example, a P/P Power breed of Ore Eater may be ideal for situations where its shield must mitigate a large hit, while an S/S Speed breed may be necessary to take the move advantage in others. Many of the excess pets may be collected to be available for different encounters.

Full data in pipe-delimited format is at for anyone who wants to pull it into a spreadsheet or DB and slice it for themselves. Below I excerpt some interesting views.

Question about battle pet breeds
Forum Posts locked for inactivity .. how does it work?
Capturing pets in the world (Breeds or rarity) ?

Here are the Top 50 most held pets in the 27 rosters, together with the three most common breeds held.

People keep duplicates for various reasons: because different breeds are useful for different purposes, because the pet is handy to have a second of when you can’t heal, or just for trade. And then sometimes, using a double or triple team is a thought-free way to beat a tamer when you just want Charms. Triple Iron Starlette (except against Elemental or Magic), triple Nexus Whelpling (except against Mechanical), triple Ikky or Zandalari Raptor or Blighted/Infected Squirrel are cheesy teams that will steamroll most BfA quests quickly.

Interesting stuff Gráinne! Adding a blue tag to this!


Thank you, Vossprey, but “interesting” is stretching it. Even the nerdiest of battlers might hesitate to go that far. :stuck_out_tongue:

However, one of the most common FAQs from people who have reached the stage of understanding breeds is “What breed of X should I get?” and it is useful to have some reference easily available, at least as a starting point for discussion. Now I will be able to link this when asked. :slight_smile:

There are also AAA’s recommendations:
which are the product of a lot of painstaking work, and are more user-friendly, but are presented as clear answers, and don’t represent the messiness of actual considerations and informed choices.

not a pet battler, but am an achievement hunter and completionist, so unfortunately i do get dragged into pet battling :frowning:

a very extensive list, and makes you wonder why blizz themselves dont provide lists for such things, with us having to rely on wowhead and people like you.

ok, my posts purpose: you seem to be quite involved with pet battles as you’ve posted on a few posts in this section. i have the add ons pet tracker, and petjournal enhanced. in the past these have shown me what breeds are available, but i have noticed that a lot of the new BFA pets are only showing as NEW. i have updated these add ons but no luck.

as an example foulfeather and fozling are both showing as new to me, but above you have details for their breeds. is there any quick way i can tell if they are duplicates so i can just sell the pets if they are. this is the time when the pets would sell for the most probably. also, it would help me know which to keep or sell if there are more than 3 breeds. i know you can see if they are different as lvl 1, but you have to check the stats on each one, and also, this is no indication what breed they will be at 25. many thanks.


Get or update the addon Battle Pet Breed ID

That’s what does the breed calculations that derives the breeds shown.

There can be a problem determining the stats of a Level 1, because the exact stats may be fractional, but are displayed in integers, so it is possible that two different breeds might display the same integers, because the stats are low enough that they aren’t separated enough (like 6.9 and 7.4 will both round to 7 when displayed).

However, speaking specifically to the 8.0 and 8.1 drop and vendor pets, all or nearly all of them have only one breed. I don’t think any has multiple breeds. (Can anyone think of one that does?)

Edit: … oh, apparently Needleback Pup does. It’s odd they did that, when all the rest are single-breeds

i dont have battle pet breed id, but will pick it up.

the Lil’War Machine (Horde only) bought from the Honorbound Quartermaster has 2 breeds (at least) i think. i only found this out by accident when i bought a second when i wasn’t concentrating. the two i have at lvl 1 are:
H161 P12 S9 and H158 P12 S10
for some reason this is not saying NEW, but both show as p/h breeds, with add on saying that it comes in 2 breeds: h/h and p/h. im guessing i have p/h and h/h and its just a bug saying that i have 2x p/h. but like you said, hard to tell at lvl 1.

oh and ty xD


You’re right; those two have both H/H and H/P breeds, and B/B

According to

H/H: 168/11/9
H/P: 161/12/9
B/B: 158/12/10

but according to Battle Pet Breed ID, there is no B/B.

These contradictions happen every new patch, when new pets are created. The available breeds are not given by Blizzard in their API, so as new pets are issued, sites and addon makers have to wait for people to actually get some to see what breeds are possible.

(Vintoleth) #13

so in actual fact i might have the b/b breed, not h/h xD

aye they do, but they shouldn’t but i wont go into my usual spiel here as its not the place :stuck_out_tongue:

thanks again, now onto Gnomeregan xD


Yeah, in fact I just checked, and found that my own Lil’ Siege Tower is B/B.

Which sucks. :frowning:

Dang - so’s mine. Thats a wasted stone then.

PS - who were the 27 people you chose to use to populate the roster?

We are all wondering if we were one of them!

I doubt I was one. I dont post much - am almost entirely absent from the other community forums - and I dont youtube either.

Iv thought about the youtube tho. I just dont think I can bring anything new thats not already out there. And even the most popular lke Disco’s is still rather niche. It is fun to watch tho - especially since he’s upgraded his computer to something that can hold > 10fps. It was getting painful…

(Exris) #16

UPDATE: lil’ siege tower is now unselectable for pet battles.

Maybe a hot fix incoming?

(Remte) #17

I’ve been levelling mine just fine. Are you sure you were on Alliance character?

Great job, Gráinne. Although if I’ve been ever considered there, I don’t like I couldn’t have leveled some neglected wild pets in time! :joy: I can see others might have neglected them too. It’s a good requirement, otherwise irrelevant duplicates would’ve been caught.
Good points on the moveset clones aswell. Some may min-max all of them, some might get them randomly, the others might aim for diversity. I’m usually in the third camp unless I really need a copy (e.g. snails), wonder what the other folks (especially PvP-oriented) think.
