You may wish to edit it to read "He's in the Sha'naar temple on the bottom level of the mine, not on the mountains."He's in the Sha'naar temple, not on the mountains."
I would wager you fell into the hole, not gave it a good feel (though I may be wrong)."First time I looked for this little guy I feel down the big hole next to him in pursuit of a rare creature..."
The only thing I might have liked to see (though I know the HTML frame is the difficulty) is for the local map for each entry to be in the display frame, perhaps next to the boss/trainer name rather than over on the lower left of the button frame. It's not terribly obvious what it is (the map icon) and it took a bit of experimentation to find. Perhaps you could consider a narrow right-side frame with the map at the upper or lower right so it seems to be a component of the teams frame rather than an 'addition' to the buttons frame? Maybe include the map icon as a standard part of the background tile on the display frame with a mouseover box for the linkage rather than a separate .img linked into the button frame?
You might also consider a 'suggest an additional team' button for people to submit their teams for you to add if you see fit, otherwise the comments section under each entry will likely bloat with "the team I use is..." entries. It will also take some of the load off your shoulders down the road when additional bosses/trainers are added (you won't have to trial/error every team yourself).
And if you REALLY want a challenge, you could even add an icon to the lower right of each team member frame indicating how it is acquired. A $ for blizzard store, a boot for a boss/dungeon drop, an enraged kitten for wild-caught, etc. Not at all necessary, but a useful piece of information to have for newer pet battlers who don't immediately know where so-n-so pet that you recommend in your guide comes from.
While I don't personally PvP, there is a great absence of PvP teams information on the web (only Discdoggy that I am aware of). You could add a subsection and include a few of those if you like.
You could also have a subsection for 'Utility Teams" so you can include leveling teams for certain expansions or classic utility teams that everyone uses like 'howl bomb' , 'rot-n-ruin' , capture teams and anti-type teams.
One last trivial addition, you might want to include the 3 pets that are required to open the L3 Menagerie under your Garrison section. May seem silly for veterans, but new-to-pet-battles folks may appreciate it.

I wish copying notes to Rematch wouldn't create line breaks between "Turn" + "ability to use this turn" texts. I don't know if that can be avoided though.
Iibis wrote:I see that Gahtmilch already commented on this, but I think this should be highlighted more: I'm not sure if you've considered pet breed requirements for teams to be successful? I can't see any mention of that, or a mention that any breed is acceptable when there are multiple to choose from. In many cases when there are multiple breeds, one is great, others doable but not 100% sure and the rest just won't work, and that will also be a major factor when there are complaints that this or that strat never works for them. It's frustrating for someone to try a strategy that is supposed to work, but doesn't, because the person writing the strategy hasn't considered breeds (and especially when the reader doesn't even know that breeds exist!).
But anyways great work and I appreciate the work anyone puts into making good collective guides! I know how much time it takes just to search for different tactics (so many different sources to browse!), let alone test them.
Iibis wrote:Edit: Also seems that the Rematch string copying isn't working at least in the CT planner. I could copy the first team (for Taran Zhu) but not the others. I wish a text box would appear to manually be able to highlight + copy, also I don't 100% like the idea of blindly copying something to my clipboard (I don't believe you have malicious intent, but it doesn't hurt to be transparent). Tested it without Adblock Plus (using Chrome) but that doesn't help.
Edit2: vs. Zao, Calfling of Niuzao the team [Wild Jade Hatchling, Zandalari Anklerender, Darkmoon Tonk] has listed abilities 2, 2, 1 for Anklerender, but since Black Claw is called for, it should be 2, (1/2), 2. Also Darkmoon Tonk has wrong abilities, listing 1, 2 (minefield), 1 (lock-on) instead of 1, 1 (shock and awe), 2 (ion cannon).

Personally, I like website layouts a bite more "simple", but that's only me. With the quality content you're providing I'm not going to moan because the site may load a tad bit slower because of the graphics.
The only part I don't like are the popups for the comments. That's maybe because you don't want the content part to be too "long" so users actually have to scroll? Just a guess.
As for the rematch string copying feature... how about the wowhead approach? If you click the button a popup with a textbox containing the string appears. The text is already highlighted, so the user only has to hit CTRL+C. It's not the best-looking solution, but a big part of your userbase probably already knows this from wowhead and instinctively knows what to do with it.
