    Possibility to catch legendary pets

    The problem with that is legendary pets are very OP. They take reduced damage from everything (50% less?) and have monstrous health pools. If you allowed people to battle with them, be it regular pet battles in the game even, it would completely break any semblance of a challenge. Of course for pvp they would have to be disabled right from the start that's not even a question.

    So if you can't battle with them, what is the point of them being legendary then? We go full circle

    The only way I can see it work is if you can grab a legendary pet but it fills all three of your battle pet slots.

    That's a pretty good idea.

    Would feel boring to play with just three abilities. Emerald Protodrake boring. Ofc if you make them Legendary, you don't need a switch pet button so maybe they can get a fourth ability?

    They could make them collectable, but unable to be used in battles, maybe.

    Just make them collectables but reduce their effectiveness to that of a Rare pet (or are there Epics yet?). I mean they are legendary because they are out there with the damage reduction buff, maybe the process of catching them makes them weaker so they lose the buff and health goes down.

    No.

    Make them collectable, but don't allow them to be used in pet battles.

    Bring on TBC servers, at least they'll offer more staying power... Hopefully.

    Actually, Legendary pets only have inflated stats. The damage reduction is part of pets being Boss pets. E.g.: Pandaria pet tamers have Legendary pets, but none of them have damage reduction because they aren't bosses.

    Add an Epic quality that adds HP & power (and maybe a fourth ability to spice things up) and a Legendary quality that is only cosmetic like shiny Pokémons. Make it fart rainbows or something, but don't make them like the legendary battle pets already in the game.

    But then, what is really the point of that 'legendary' label? Just knowing you own a legendary pet? If you can't use it in battle, you can only use it to follow you around. And in that case its quality is really not important as you can't see it anyway. If that pet is hard to find, sure that's satisfaction and prestige, but it might be hard to get and still remain rare quality (as many pets currently are). It just feels kind of pointless to me.

    I don't really care about legendary pets, but I imagine others may want them for the unique skins/models/etc that some have.

    Seems weird to me that players don't have access to at least epic quality pets. Imagine if gear stopped at blue quality as well.

    But there's tremendous pushback whenever Blizzard talks about, suggests, or tries to give players access to epic pets so that's why we haven't seen anything new in that regard and we've been stuck capped at rare quality since the system was introduced.

    Blizzard contemplated epic pets, and it was met by huge protests by the pet battle/collection community..

    Legendary? It will only be worse..
    Fact (because I say so): TBC > Cata > Legion > MoP > BfA > WoD = WotLK

    Pet battling is so niche anyway that they don't want to anger the hardcore collectors who've spent the time to get/level up 1,000+ rare and level 25 pets, so they'll just go the easy route. Put in a few new wild pets, then slap the rest on rep vendors or on bosses.

    Maybe they could release fewer pets with unique skill sets instead of 10 recolors every expansion/patch, pets you'd really push to acquire.

    I mean they have added so much content for pet battles that pretty much calls for having massive collections so anything new they add should take that into account as well.
