I'm very curious about how the selection process will go for the 30 pets. Picking out 30 pets before even starting could take quite awhile. I'm currently at over 250 pets at maximum level and I would have no idea where to start, and I know there are plenty of people with more max level pets than that.

I don't think you have to select 30 pets in advance. That would be stupid. I guess you can use whatever pets you have but you can't heal in between the fights. The 30 is probably just the requirement like item level 480 for ToT LFR - they don't force you to wear item level 480 during LFR it's just the requirement to get in the queue.

This is my guess as well. It doesn't say that you only have 30 pets - only that you must have a minimum of 30.

Obviously, completing it will be easier if you have 300 level 25 pets instead of 30.

Jadax thanks for being a great timeless isle spy! The Killrog idea was brilliant! I certainly gained a lot of knowledge from this! Do you have any clues yet as to how long the questline is to get to the isle? I'm not a huge fan of blizzards "you need to do 25 quests and 3 hours of work to unlock the stuff you want to do" However, it is what it is that tournament looks like it'll be fun! And hopefully not impossible.

The PTR game files suggest that the breadcrumb quests are a series of three. However, I believe I missed the first one as I was already on the Isle when they became available. The second two start on the isle.

I think.

Either way, it's not long, and on PTR you can fly straight there anyway.

A new vendor showed up today on the north side of the arena. He rides a giant snail, and is called Wizzig (Neverending Story reference, anyone?).
He sells, for 500 coins each:
25 Magical Pet Biscuits
Big Pink Bow
"Dapper Gentleman" Costume
"Little Princess" Costume
"Pirate Captain" Costume

so it looks like for the 4 pets, we are just gated 12 weeks... after the 12 weeks ( 3 coins x 4 pets) we can keep doing the tournament for flawless battle stones. that seems like a very nice system along with the other pets getting added ( wild?). With the 3 for 1 turn in on family pets, it seems I will get ´all rare´ fairly easily before the next expansion.

Just my opinion, but these pets look very strong considering most of the major teams we have now are getting nerfed ( switch teams, sandstorm etc)

That's all I have so far :P
It looks like each trainer's pets may be roughly sequential in NPCID, which would make things simpler if there weren't a whole lot missing...

All the Spirit Tamers' pets have been re-added, which confused me as I didn't recognise their names off hand.

A number of the new pets are either companion only, and these all have IDs that are below 70000, and are listed below:

The fact that these all have Honorifics cannot be a coincidence, and there is one of each pet family!
Mrs. Skitters - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65826
Mr. Growls - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65825
Madam Flapsalot - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65827
Ms. Croaker - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65829
Lady Burninator - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65830
Boomy Jr. - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65832
Dr. Stinky - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65834
Sir Buckethead - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65828
Lord Landslide - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65831
Miss Mystical - http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65833

Finally, there are three more pets that I cannot find a "home" for:

1) Muffin - Beast
Apparently the same as the other trainers' pets listed above, but with a low NPC ID, and no leftover trainers to assign him to. Maybe a pet that belongs to a trainer on the Timeless Isle outside of the scenario? Interestingly uses the same model as the Perky Pug.
There is an NPC called Muffin on Live servers. He is a dog that wanders about in the Shrine of Two Moons, although he does not use the Perky Pug model, and is currently classified as a Humanoid. I think it is likely that this is the same NPC updated to be categorised correctly.
http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=65344

2) Elayna - Aquatic
The only apparently catchable pet included in the July 2nd update, with the flavor text: "Elayna is found only within snowstorms and can usually be found by luring her out with a notepad and promises of Wiki pages." Shares a model with the Magical Crawdad.
http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=63724

3) Angara - Undead
An elite pet, non-catchable. Similar to Doopy in Icecrown, perhaps? The model is a bear and the quality is currently poor, whereas Doopy is Legendary. Again, the NPC ID is too low to associate it with the scenario trainers, and the "Elite" status rules it out anyway.
http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=71816
Wise Mari pets
Carpe Diem - aquatic
Spirus - magic
River - elemental

Shademaster Kiryn pets
Nairn - humanoid
Lightning - mech
Stormeon - beats

Blingtron 4k pets
Au - elemental
Banks - critter
Lil b - mech
Always seem to run in same order

More Info:

Found the Vengeful Porcupette, but since I don't do much pvp, not sure i'll get this one... Awesome write up and info here: http://ptr.wowhead.com/npc=73688#comments on how to get it.

Also, a lot of sites are saying that Gu'chi the Swarmbringer who should drop Gu'chi Swarmlings is in the Valley of Four Winds, he/she is not, found her/him on the Timeless Isle, down south in the little village of Old Pi'Jiu.

EDIT: Found him/her again and this time I GOT THE DROP :)

Elite pets Boss pets now get the magic racial in addition to their 50% dmg reduction.
Lil' Oondasta is now a boss pet and I assume the 4 elites in the tournament are also upgraded to boss pets. The fable pets remain the same.

Do the rares on the island function the same as on the Isle of thunder (ie. just need to hit it and they get more health the more people attack, but everyone gets individual loot)? Be a bit of a nightmare if they don't once everyone descends on the island.

Also, do they drop valour/coins like the IoT rares?

Yes to both questions for the most part. The rares range from around 2k health all the way to around 25k+ and they increase as the amount of attackers goes up. So far the IoT rares do not drop valor, but they do drop plenty of timeless coins and lesser charms.
