This should be fun.. My first team was Rocket Chicken, one of the harder to find dragons, and one of the murlocs (Murkablo maybe...)..
Was it a GREAT team.. no way.. I limped along for a while and got them to 25 with 1 switch when I found a blue Kun Lai runt .. but it WAS a lot of fun as they were some of my favorite pets
So yes, early on, just focus on what abilities are better against certain types of pets. I was well into a stack of 25's before I ever really looked at breeds.
And remember some pets have abilities that don't match their type. For example [pet]Chuck[/pet] who is an aquatic type of pet, has [ability]Rip[/ability] which is a Beast type of ability and [ability]Consume[/ability] which is an Undead type of ability. So you may be able to mix and match pet type and their ability type to overwhelm your opponent !
that is the beauty though, stuff like Jade owl that has a really sort of niche ability to completely ruin a certain type.
In pokemon you could obviously learn a lot more moves, so you could tailor each mon to perfectly syngerise with each other and also cover their own weaknesses with moves that counter what counters their type (also dual typing... headache man... I prefer battlepets as I don't have to dedicate your entire life to it to understand it)
What I was initially saying that I think was misinterpreted was thatr I check who I am facing next, then I pick a team especially to counter them, this means I am usualy leveling 3 new guys every trainer up to the trainers level. (I am currently working on elementals to fight a mechanical trainer) only problem with this is that every time a trainer is going to be a higher level, so what I was doing was just going back to ogrimmar and starting over with the new guys and leveling them till I can fight the trainer, moving areas as I level up, sometimes switching in one counter pet if I'm having a rough time in a certain area.
I should probably approach it like I did in pokemon though, add one guy who I need for the next fight to a team with my two highest level guys, then let him grab some xp from those fights and then rinse and repeat, this will probably be a lot faster.
and I really appreciate the method posted earlier, but is it really that much faster than putting a lowb in a higher level team and fighting wild battles? With this method I'm gonna have to go back to og and start catching and leveling pets I'm just going throw away afterwards.... It seemed like way too much for what it was to me... by this I mean flying to loads of areas IU've never heard of, probably are alliance turf and then catching pets that will be be obsolete in ten mins... if the point is to go and catch a strong crab, why don't I just do that? heck, I already have crabs (thats what she said) just not the really cool "blood in the water" ones, I also have turtles and tortoises and stuff too so I don't really see how that is going to help me.
I will watch it again if I can sit through it, but my ADHD probably will ruin that for me, anything under 720p and my brain just shuts off. (I can read books though, but they grab my attention in a different way. I'm not like some TV zombie or something, haha)
