So a friend of mine cleared EN last night and asked if I wanted to use his lockout to get the pet this morning... I said yes of course! The whelplings were still in the raid (although I'm not sure if anyone actually tried to catch them last night), but I found that I got the 'failed to create pet battle' error every time I tried to battle one. However my friend was able to enter battle with them fine. I'm wondering if that actually means we have to kill the final boss ourselves to get the pet... :`(
This is rather disheartening news. I finished my full clear a little while ago and actually came here to make a post stating I was going to start accepting BattleTag requests to get as many people their pets as I could this week
I left my raid an hour and a half ago but I just ran back in and it appears there have been respawns. Anyone online and interested in seeing if they are able to capture them I will be on probably another hour. Send me a Battle Tag request and I'll get you in (Kelly#12973).

A guildie and I just tested it. Seems like the spawns were still up and can be battled by other players that were not there for the final boss kill.
I did leave the raid with all spawns up (they respawned while I was inside and clearing them out on the first night). So it's still possible that if there are zero spawns inside when everyone leaves and it soft resets, they won't respawn.
Anyway, good to know that these whelps can still be shared!
Edit: I'll be listing my cleared Normal Emerald Nightmare raid in the custom LFG finder on Thursday/Friday nights for the next few weeks. Alliance-US, just search for "Dream Whelpling".
Feel free to browse through Perks N Peeves, my vanity pet collecting blog!
Yeah, I have it listed in the finder under custom right now for anyone interested. Search "Dream Whelpling Pet" Thought about it after the fact and figured it was easier than all of the BattleTag business lol Everyone thus far has been very considerate in only grabbing one and leaving the rest for other people. They seem to be on operating a 5 minute respawn rate or so.

De-listing for now so I can get some sleep. I will zone back in tomorrow afternoon/evening and re-open it in the finder as long as the pets have continued to respawn. I'd say at least 40 people have captured one in the past two hours. Got to meet lots of nice collectors
