    Battle Pets, who is best of each family

    So basically as the title says, who is the best pet of each family?

    That really depends on what you're going against. In my opinion, Creepy Crawly is the best undead, but I bet there's some other undead pet that could beat him.

    It's a big rock-paper-scissor game really

    It all depends on the rest of your team. I like oily slimeling for the magic family, cog blade raptor for the mechanical and Flayer Youngling for the humanoid family.

    I've got a rocket chicken as my mechanical and he seems to be the best mechanical from what I've seen.

    For dragon I like my crimson whelpling, two strong dragon attacks and a decent heal.

    Seems a lot of people go for the flayer youngling for humanoid, but I like my gregarious grell too, he's got a dot, a punch and a heal.

    But yeah, pet battles are mostly gimmicks like rock paper scissors, for better and for worse.

    There is no "best pet"... How many times does this need to be repeated?
    It all depends on your other pets and the those of your opponent.

    Sure, some pets might be stronger, but it's just a waiting-game until Blizard tunes their numbers, too.

    Celestial Dragon is definitely the strongest Dragonkin.

    Celestial Dragon doesn't even come close to competing.


    @OP:
    Do you mean family in the sense of humanoid/critter/beast or in the sense of frog/snail/moth (i.e. similar attack sets).
    The answers to the former would be completely subjective, situational and not very enlightening, while the answer to the later might actually get you somewhere.

    Blizzard Store pets, but in truth, it depends on your/opponent's pets.

    Also, Little Marine, Lil' Thor, and Zergling. <==StarCraft
    Howay the lads!

    Not really. I rape Lil XT, Raggy and the Deathwing drake with my team.

    As peeps already stated in this thread. It's a rock, paper & sisscor game. My tip would be to go for pets that has a good synergy.

    Mechanical Mini Thor have been my backbone for a while now, he's pretty OP. but i feel like cat from outside ulduar is OP aswell

    for dragonkin the Celestial dragon is extremely useful / OP at low levels because you can heal and just out-last any pet... but higher levels i found that Lil Deathwing or Lil tarecgosa is better.

    magic im torn between feiline familiar and mini mindslayer :7 both are somewhat decent, but cant pick one

    undead im using mr bigglesworth and Restless shadeling. Mr bigglesworth is fun and cool, but i feel like he's a bit weak... Restless shadeling is beast, but useless against critters

    thats what i can say from my experience with pet battles so far tho. i may aswell be wrong on all points, but yeah.

    I've been using Lil Tarecgosa, Murablo, and switching my third around a lot. Tarecgosa is typically a game-finisher.

    Mech Gnome was good before they fixed turrets (Turrets attacked burrowed/flying/dodging/etc pets for normal damage) but after the fix he's average.

    People who ask this question have an inherent lack of understanding of this minigame.

    Infact, it kind of reminds me of this:

    The Celestial Dragon is indeed pretty strong, but I'm inclined to believe Chrominius is stronger.

    It's a rock-paper-scissors game. Elemental pet with elemental attacks is a hard counter to mechanical pets with mechanical attacks. Frogs/toads are hard counters to undead pets with undead attacks.These combinations can last ad infinitum, it all depends on your pets, opponent's pets, the choice of abilities and skill.

    I found an interesting illustration to this problem: link.
