Battle Pet Evolution in 6.2: Follow Up

April 02, 2015
Yesterday we posted news about evolving pets in 6.2 — and some of their evolutions were rather... unique.
April Fool's! (Puftbomination)
That's right! We fooled you again!

Or perhaps we didn't fool you, but hopefully we made you laugh (which is what April Fool's Day is all about).

Did you get all the references?

  • Ancona Chicken evolved into Chicken Boo, a giant desguise-wearing chicken from Animaniacs.
  • Speedy evolved into Gamé-Rapid, a reference to the giant flying turtle-like Kaiju, Gamera.
  • Land Shark evolved into Greater Land Shark. The barrels were a reference to the 1975 classic film Jaws, while "candygram" was a reference to the famous SNL Land Shark sketch.
  • Bananas evolved into Plátano Kong — an obvious reference to King Kong (plátano is Spanish for banana).
  • Puftbomination was, of course, a reference to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the original 1984 classic Ghostbusters.


Our thanks to Drrum
Once more, we'd like to extend an extra special thanks to Drrum (known in-game as Michelle De Rum) for providing us with nearly all of the artwork for the evolved pets. Her extraordinary rendition of Puftbomination made the joke. We can always count on her talent and humor to make us smile.

You can enjoy more of Drrum's creativity at her Gallery of Pets and Mounts.

@Abbotta if you eat a lot of marshmallows you'll turn into a Puftbomination and can have fun playing with yourself.

I love the thought and creativity that goes into these every year - can't say I was fooled as I logged in specially to see what this year's joke would be, but thoroughly enjoyed it none-the-less. Great work guys :D
