A few days ago, I tamed a stunted shardhorn and it came up in the chat box that I had tamed it and it'd been reduced by capture. Looked in my journal, it wasn't there. Had to go catch another. Achievement marked it as caught the first time, but I didn't actually have it. Yesterday I realized my achievement is now counting 2 more pets than my journal has, and using the tracker here (the addon one) it's also counting 2 more than my journal has. Couldn't figure out what was missing, so I put in a ticket. They said I was missing Baby Ape and Anodized Robot Cub. My cub is my main battling pet right now so I knew he wasn't missing, and I checked and my Ape was still there too. Put in another ticket and the second GM said no, those aren't in your book because you deleted them, but I've replaced them. So now I have a blue and a green cub, and a green and grey ape.
If you actually made it through all that, why are the pets I kept not counting as actually being there, and if I release the ones they restored will it mess with the ones I wanted to keep?
