I know 2 things about pet battles. What I know in game about what I can do, and how long it takes. and what you can do in a Pokemon game, on say a Gameboy. The latter, I have NO experience with, just what little I have seen of others playing.
If the tablet/smartphone pet battle system looked like a Pokemon world screen, with say your 5 'continents' and if your character is say, a mage and can port to each of them immediately, then have a travel timer to get to pets/tamers in each zone, with maybe a zone map with a bunch of paws on it just like the game world.
There are certain zones, Krasarang Wilds for example that have pets VERY close together with no mobs to deal with at all, and you can circle indefinitely anyway going paw to paw to paw, and leveling any pet you want.
Same way with tamers. There are a small handful you cannot carry a level 1 toon to and just leave it there to battle and collect bags with, or get xp for your pets.
In theory, I could make as many alts as I needed at level 1, get a friend (or in my case, use a second account) and use a 2 seater mount and fly them to any and every tamer there is, then jsut log into each one every day, battle the tamer for the daily, log out and back in on the next one. If it takes 20 seconds to logout, 20 seconds to log back in and however long to battle, depending on the tamer and your comp/whether you are boosting a pet or not.
So, realistically, if they made a 2 minute timer in between each pet tamer, it would still be about the same as what you could realistically do already, legally with the existing game mechanics. Just, all done from the 'comfort' of your tablet/smartphone.
