I understand the new system will be "turn based" but other than that I know nothing. Can someone who has actually played Pokemon give me some idea how those matches go?

You encounter a wild Pokemon. You send one of your own to attack it. The battle is turn based, meaning first one pokemon attacks and then the next, back and forth one attack at a time until one Pokemon is defeated. If you wanted to catch that Pokemon and add it to your team, you had to beat on it enough to weaken it but not cause it to faint (ie kill it).
So if the new pet battle system is actually going to be anything like Pokemon, then we'll encounter wild critters out in Azeroth and fight them with one of our own pets until we can somehow conceivably catch it. It's really a simple system. I'm curious to see how true the comparison is.

Also what happens to the pets that normally interact... will Rocket Bots one shot each other, will the Creepy Crate eat all contenders, will Stinky scare away any and all black cats, does your opponent need to drink to fight your Pint Sized Pink Elekk, Grunty vs Zergling... who will win ?
