I was really hoping to see some responses for that question. I finally beat the tournament, and I am having a really hard time choosing my first pet. I was wondering if any of them are more help than others in doing the actual tournament, or maybe especially good for PvP. Any thoughts?

Xu Fu, Zao, and Chi-Chi are my favorites. I think youd be happy with any of them.

Chi-Chi is pretty amazing in PvP with Feign Death and synergizes well with a couple of teams because of Wild Magic. I haven't found any uses for them against any PvE Trainers yet.

Chi-Chi, Hatchling of Chi-Ji is the first one I purchased. Leveling her was even fun, she's quite powerful and was able to take down 3 pets at around lvl 17 (with lots of healing afterwords of course, but still...). Xu-Fu, Cub of Xuen is the second one I've purchased. I haven't had a chance to get my hands dirty with him yet, but I've read he also has some killer combos.

Like you however, I'd be really interested to see how people rank them in order and why.

I love Chi-Chi the best. She simplifies the No-No battle greatly. Xu-Fu's skills aren't in the same order as they are in the pet battle so that kind of sucks about him. The dragon has basically all the attacks that the green proto drake has so that was kind of eh. I do like Zao but I kind of wish he was a different color.

Xufu is my favorite celestial. I rarely use him in pvp, but he's on my capture team with the turnip. With the 100% hit of bite and the healing ability of feed, he's just a solid pet that can take down the opponents, and with vengeance, if my turnip fails against whatever I'm trying to capture, I can hit for just the amount I was hit for last.

I do have him on a pvp moonfire team, along with a nether faerie dragon and a fungal abomination, but that team suffers vs other weather changers and hasn't been a top performer for me. Plus, mechanicals are still popular because of the direhorn, kovok, and death adder lashback. He doesn't do all that well vs mechanicals :(

I'd put chi-chi as the number two celestial pet, but I haven't used the others at all.

My Favourite is XuFu just because...

But in terms of utility I've found Chi-Chi to be really, really good. He's flying type with a dodge and a heal. Against a bunch of the aquatic types on trainers he's very useful to have imo.

Thanks for the opinions! I ended up going with Xu-fu - possibly "just because" as well :) I didn't pay attention to the location of the talents until after I bought him. But he is awesome looking enough to be worth it, and hopefully once I get him to 25 he'll be useful :) I haven't started PvP'ing but I've been trying to get a decent amount of pets to work with before I start. I think I'm about there, have a few more pets I need to finish getting to 25 that I'd like to use. Can't wait!

Xu-Fu is a powerhouse and the best statted of the celestial pets. Comming with 333 power as a p/p breed, whereas the 3 others are P/S. Really hurts zao, whom really should have been H/H, so far he feels like an inferior and quite fragile version of xu-fu. Chi-chi is sorta ok with ps, having a quite good moveset that really lifts up the pet. But Yu'la is junk, poor breed and abilities.

Prowl+spirit claws or feed is murder with xu-fu


Ratings
1: Xu-Fu
2: Chi-Chi
3: Zao
4: Yu-la

Edit: Zao is also a quite noisy pet, I ended having to find his sound file to mute him. Really irritating.

I agree with Luciandk's list. I use xu'fu all the time, but the others a lot less or not at all. Here's looking at you, Yu-la.

I am glad to hear that! He's pretty awesome already and I have only gotten him to 17 so far. I can see using him for a lot of the Fable pets. It also makes me feel better about having to wait so long for the rest of them - since I have the best already :) Thanks!

Well I know which one is best for me—or at least it's going to be the first I buy. The one that is going to get me my "...The Crazy Cat Lady" title. :D
