I haven't done the pet battles because I don't like the whole dying thing, as some of you know. I don't want to get into a debate about that here since it's already been talked about in other threads, I just have an idea and I'm wondering if it would work.
I have a friend willing to level a turnip for me. I understand it has an attack that never kills. Can I learn and use a leveled pet even though I've never done a battle before? (I did "train" battles just to get jade crane, raven, crawler.)
If so, can I use the leveled turnip to get some pets w/o ever killing anything? I'm assuming I can forfeit if the turnip is in danger, and forfeit if I'm not able to capture the pet so it doesn't die. (I'm guessing you can't always capture the pet even if the health is low enough--please pardon my silly questions and assumptions, having never done battles myself I'm clueless!)
I don't care about rares, pet dailies, achievements or anything like that. (Although it does bother me if the pet has a gray name, like they're saying it's as worthless as vendor trash, otherwise I don't care about quality. But I figure I can forfeit, or if I end up capturing something I decide I don't want, I'll just let it go.) All I want is to get a few of the colorful pets not available to me now, because I don't battle.
Bottom line, I never want a battle to end in death. Doable?
