My standard advice to any new battler is to be sure you're using the addons
Battle Pet Breed ID
My "must have" list starts
Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling
Emerald Proto-Whelp P/P breed
Emperor Crab P/P breed
Nexus Whelpling P/P breed
Zandalari Anklerender P/P or P/B breed
Blighted Squirrel H/P breed
Pandaren Water Spirit
H/H Bone Serpent
Gilnean Raven or Crow
Any time you spend on any of those is time well spent.
and this list of extremely useful wild pets
- Unborn Val'kyr
- any Rabbit S/S breed that has 357 speed at Blue 25
- a good Snail. I mostly use Shimmershell Snail H/P, but a Rapana Whelp H/B has the advantage that it's nearly 25 when captured.
- Sprite Darter Hatchling - you can find a use for both S/S and P/P breeds
- Mud Jumper either breed
If you want more recommendations, I'm sure we'd all be happy to throw dozens in
Here are a few bonus:
Kun-Lai Runt P/B or P/P
Flayer Youngling S/S
some Moth - long story there. For Wild moths, my favourite is Gilded H/P
Crow S/S next Darkmoon Faire
Blighthawk H/H or H/P
Amethyst Shale Hatchling P/P
any Spider- you will find a use for both fast and power breeds
Fen Crab P/P
Moonshell Crab P/P

The Terrible Turnip also has a spell which cannot reduce hp below 1, but it's not a strong as Grumpy's skill. That said, Grumpy is a beast and the Turnip elemental, so the difference in family may be meaningful in certain battles.
If you want to be able to take advantage of battling Squirt in your garrison I recommend an S/S Bronze Whelpling and Widget the Departed (or a Spectral Tiger Cub, if you have one). Since you're in the US, using this strategy this week during the pet battle bonus could significantly boost your level 25 pet roster, as Squirt will be in the US Garrisons on Saturday NNovember 5th, during the pet battle bonus xp week. If you can't get an S/S Bronze Whelping or Widget, another popular strategy uses the Weebomination and Enchanted Broom, both of which you can use well in pvp battles.
Good luck and happy leveling

But for a new battler getting their first rabbit? You get your most useful breed first, and worry about picking up the specialised cases later.
