Just as a note, no addon can actually replace the pet journal. The API won't allow it. What all of the pet battle addons do (Pet Battle Teams, Niggles, Rematch, Pet Journal Enhanced, Pet Tracker, etc.) is overlay on top of the existing journal when they need stuff in that space. Rematch in particular allows you to disable this (as mentioned above) and use the standalone version, leaving the entire journal untouched (my personal favorite mode as I like to be able to see the AH and my pet journal at the same time).

I can see how that can be very useful. I think I'm going to suggest to my son that he load Rematch so we can compare it to the one I'm currently using. Personally, I've been battling long enough I remember most of the strong/weak combinations. Earlier on however, that could have been very, very useful. Thanks for your comment. It was insightful.
I like this feature too. It is really useful when used in conjunction with the search feature. IMO the search feature itself is one of the best things about Rematch. Even if you prefer to use Niggles as a team addon, you can use Rematch in standalone just for the search capabilities. It can search/filter by stats (level, health, speed, and power), ability names (Call Lightning, Surge, etc.), Ability and Flavor text ("double damage", "enemy team", "Arathi Highlands", etc.), etc. You can even right click a pet and say "find similar" and it will find all pets with 3 or more moves that match the pet you right clicked on. I use the search a lot when I try and make my teams faster/better for a particular trainer.
