Battle Pets Getting the Ability to Evolve in 6.2?

April 01, 2015
Evolving Battle Pets Coming in 6.2?

Recently, we were given a special invitation by Blizzard to review some potential changes to battle pets in patch 6.2. It appears as though they're taking another page out of the Pokémon playbook — the ability for battle pets to "evolve" into larger, stronger variants.

Evolution game mechanics remain a mystery at this stage. However, we did have the chance to see what a handful of evolved battle pets will look like. We've pulled the in-game models and shared them here.

Evolution Previews
The first few evolutions are definitely cool, but nothing extraordinary. They're almost exactly what you'd expect — larger, more menacing versions of the original.

Pygmy Direhorn into Colossal Direhorn
Pygmy Direhorn → Colossal Direhorn

Wild Golden Hatchling into Savage Golden Serpent
Wild Golden Hatchling → Savage Golden Serpent

Syd the Squid into Leviathan Syd
Syd the Squid → Leviathan Syd

Pretty neat, right? But then we started to see more, well... exotic pet evolutions.

Ancona Chicken into Chicken Boo
Ancona Chicken → Chicken Boo

Speedy into Gamé-Rapid
Speedy → Gamé-Rapid

Land Shark into Greater Land Shark
Land Shark → Greater Land Shark

Bananas into Plátano Kong
Bananas → Plátano Kong

Weebomination into Puftbomination
Weebomination → Puftbomination
"This Mr. Puftbomination's okay! He's a sailor, he's in Stormwind... we get this guy laid, we won't have any trouble!" —Lord Peter Venkman

We can only imagine what sort of abilities Puftbomination might have. Toasted marshmallow, anyone?

I know this was a joke and all, but I really wish all pets got some kind of graphical update. Right now many pets have really bad graphics. Just look at the frogs or marmots, they look terrible.

I don't think this would be a good idea. It would be too much like pokemon and I really like how the pets are now. I like that they are cute and funny to look at instead of when they would evolve to more menacing versions.

Pet Evolution will be live in patch 6.1.4 with the /pet command (not 6.2).

I'd be happy if they'd get bigger as you level them. :)
