But when I rightclick on an enemy pet during a petbattle (e.g. against a trainer) and select "Show enemy Pet in Journal" then, nothing happens
Without rematch I can see the enemy pet in my petwindow after that and have a look on its 3 abilities and their description including damage and cooldowns.
Can I get there another way, with rematch?
Or is there a possibility to fix that?
Today's update (4.3.4) will address this by doing a few things:
- "Show Pet in Journal" from the right-click menu on a Battle UI unit frame will search for the pet in the journal, just as clicking [Click to view pet in journal] will do from a pet link.
- Because Rematch's pet card is not actually built into Rematch's journal like it is for default, this won't have any use for pets you can never own (like tamer opponents, search for "Stiches Jr" would show now pets) so:
- "Show Pet Card" was added to that menu to show the pet card, so you can see opponent's abilities that wouldn't ordinarily be in Rematch's journal.
This feels kind of awkard to me still so I'm going to explore an option to make the pet card replace the default pet tooltips throughout the UI, including the one you see when a pet is linked.
For instance on the battle UI, instead of seeing a list of pet abilities in a default tooltip and then right-click of the pet and "Show Pet in Journal" or "Show Pet Card" and then going over to the abilities to see what they actually do; it would be neat if the original default tooltip was the card itself. Left-clicking the pet would lock the card so you can mouseover abilities. No extra windows or right-click involved.
It will also be possible to do this for pet links too. Instead of clicking a link to open the journal to see more about the pet, the link is displayed as a pet card right there. Likely with a search button on the card if you really did want to look up the pet in the journal.
This will require a bit of research but preliminary poking around has shown great promise. The end result may be awesome.

This made it in today's update too. On the win record window, you should see "Hold [Alt] to view totals for all teams." at the bottom (if you haven't disabled extra help in options). When you hold [Alt] it will show overall stats instead of team stats. Just like the pet card you can click to lock the window and mouseover one of the two icons at the top too.
And you should never hesitate to suggest stuff! I may be a little pickier about what gets added to avoid bloat, or farming them off to separate addons like the ElvUI and TomTom plugins, but stuff like overall stats is an awesome idea. I appreciate you suggesting it!
