A great ability combo for this pet is to start by charging your Barrel Toss, Stun with Clobber, use Rake to reduce the damage of whatever ability your opponent is using (Remain versatile, if you know they are going to use a nuke, use Rake before that happens!) and then finish with Barrel Toss. This is a rotation that has knocked out the majority of pets I've come up against, the only downside is the Baby Ape has no healing available, so go for the 4/14 breed for maximum damage results.
(Rolled a 100 for this little cutie... there goes my luck for the year... *prepares to take a foot*)
Trying really hard to like this guy for pet battles, seeing how silly rare he is, I got the 4/14 pet breed, so he's a mix of great speed and decent health, which is good because he has an insane amount of speed to begin with... I open with the Dodge ability, lead into a Huge, Sharp Teeth and follow up with Burrow once Dodge wears off, so far it's useful as he's able to a mitigate a lot of damage.
Got lucky at 6:30 or so server time on Zul'jin, a few were spawned and I managed to snag a rare and altf4 on a poor quality. These guys don't hit terribly hard, but are a nice "wall" pet for when you want to use a defensive pet. Their "emerald presence" ability will not only reduce damage taken, but will completely block out minor dots. On top of that, their emerald dream ability can heal almost to full health, useful for enduring insane nukes that certain pets can dish out.
