I do the same for certain pets, though I tend to look for other versions that only appear with a desired skin first. Take the Forest Moth
for example. It can appear boasting any of four color variations. That said, some of these colors are duplicated by wild moths that only appear in those colors:
All of these moths share the same typing, stats, and abilities, so it wouldn't make sense to specifically seek out a Red/Green Forest moth when I can simply capture any Rare-quality Crimson Moth instead.
It's also worthwhile to note that there appears to be specimens of each pet species that change colors each time they are summoned, in the same way that the Worg Pup
does. I have a Cat
that functions in this manner: The pet cycles through the available skins when summoned, both during and outside of battle. Not all Cats function this way. Mine appears to be special in this regard.
