    Lightbulb Pet Battles to mobile?

    So with blizzard making an obvious move towards mobile gaming I was wondering what that could look like (positively) in the case of WoW.

    What I came up with is moving PvP pet battle functionality to mobile.

    With this you should be able to assign your team from your phone and queue up to battle.

    Personally I don't care to use my computer time on PvP pet battles but I would definitely play it as a phone game.

    It could also make those pet battle PvP achievements a little less cumbersome.

    I'd def like that way more tbh.
    I love collecting the critters, but it's a huge pain to actually level them all up.

    I wouldn't think that you could level them. Sadly I don't see a way around it but seeing as PvP pet battles are instanced anyway and don't effect the game except through your win rate I don't see why it wouldn't just be a matter of convenience. I think the hardest part is if they make you able to cross platform PvP pet battle. That would help with queue times too

    My question is if you bring battle pets to mobile would it work with leveling your characters? Like if I log on my alt and do pet battles does he get any exp or is it ONLY for leveling the pets?

    Anyways my thought process is that if pet battles were made into a mobile game what incentive do they have? Can you make micro transactions off of it or are we to assume that...

    1. It's a completely free game that they'll make
    2. It will cost to buy the initial app then the rest is free
    3. Micro transactions (instead of waiting 8 minutes to rez your pets do a 1 time payment to cut that time down to 3 minutes).

    Well if you can use it to level pets it would be great. If you could use it to do WQs or Masters it would be even better.

    Cheap MTX for extra bandages, possible perhaps to buy boost stones but more importantly many, many more pets at the store.

    My assumption would be that they would treat it like the current companion app or even add it to that. It should be free because we pay a base subscription for the game plus updates imo.

    Though to be honest I'd drop $3 on it.

    After that I would say that it wouldn't level your character simply because you shouldn't be able to gain that kinda advantage from your phone.

    I personally couldn't see then allowing for leveling pets either really though it's a nice thought.

    Lastly I imagine it being for PvP pet battles and counting towards those achievements. And if they could cross platform it so that computer queuers could be in the same pool then maybe that would fix the no one PvP pet battle issues.

    I would hope they don't freemium it too much but if they let you level your pets this way I definitely see where you are coming from.

    Bandages make sense since they are fairly easy to get. Stones would be a very unfair advantage I guess but something's got to sell.

    An alternative would be to simply make shop pets lvl 25 and have many, many more of them, including cheap ones with less unique models.

    I actually don't get the feeling they would cheat the game mechanics for leveling through money. That just doesn't seem like their style to me.

    I could maybe see a one time fee for the app. But I think at most they would add a couple of achievements and a few pets or toys tied to it. You know, things that'll make you eat up time using their products

    Bandages definitely make sense also maybe pet biscuits or other pet specific toys / cosmetics.

    Oh and maybe they could let us do pet dungeon challenges in the app?
