What do you think will be a better guide?
All pets available in all zones or Rare pets in each zone with the common pets left to fend for themselves?
I'm starting to think of some pets as common (Available in most zones: Rat, snake, beetle, Scorpion), uncommon (Available in 5 or less zones: Stripe-tailed Scorpion, Shore Crab, Lava Beetle) and rare (One zone only: Polly, Sporeling Sprout, Clefthoof Cub). I'd prefer just the rare pets on a list for each zone, but I'll leave it up to you on how you'd prefer it.
