1. Introduction

This is an overview of the currently best and/or most used pets in PvP sorted by their families. With this list we want to help you find a pet of a certain class to either build a competitive team around or to fill a spot in an already existing one. Please keep in mind that those pets are rated in comparison to only other pets of the same family. That means that some families are far stronger than others and therefor pets of some kinds may be inferior to those, even though both are listed as being the best in their own family (I'm looking at you magic pets).

If you disagree with some of our choices or got any suggestions/questions please let us know in the comment section.

OK, handy as a first reference.

Everyone will have their own views on what they find works best, and that will doubtless be a whole lotta fun, but before we get into that, I suggest two things:

1. You NEED to specify Breed and context, where relevant. A B/B Fiendish Imp is a chocolate teapot.

2. What is the sequence intended to be for each family? It's not alphabetical. Is it random, or are you listing them in order your opinion of their value for PvP?

1. i agree, but i was kinda busy and wanted to get that published. adding breeds and recommended movesets is something I could add to most of the pets, but for some of them I'd rather let people experiment with it ... I'll get that done ;)
2. it's just as they came to our mind. no ranking. could make it alphabetical, but in order of value would, for the most part, be vague, since it's hard to measure the value of them

Agreed. The problem is, if they are not alphabetical, people will read them as being in order of power /value.
