If there a list of BEST or MUST HAVE pets for each type?
I've already a whole bunch just from past collecting.
Just a recommendation, but take a look at the Xu-Fu stuff on the pet battles in the dungeons ... and you will find out a lot about how some pets can be used, and ALSO, how many pets WE DON'T USE that could be really great help in a lot of fights.
Learning what to do with the rats and bunnies and such helps, but the harder part is dealing with the 2nd era of pets, when they started changing abilities, and they could somewhat cancel out your this or that. In other words a pet would be a critter and then all of a sudden is magic ... and the one you have is OK on a critter and not good on magic ... lost fight!
Getting the hang of the uses on many pets, for example, using the shield on Anubisath in the bee fight, is valuable, but many times we are more interested in the big bomb ... except that dang pet just went underground and you just lost your bomb and will take a large amount of damage!
Also, having a good idea of what the abilities amount to ... what PS is, or SS, or any of the other abilities, since some of them do not factor in a lot of fights ... and many times you want some Speed (S at the front), or Power (P at the front) ... on a pet and I tend to shy away from the BB's and the so many other types that have really poor numbers ... and check this out ... at 25 one pet has this ability with 300/289 and another ability with 295/265 numbers ... and I would look for the 289 pet ... the 3 or 4 % of damage difference is not as bad as the 7 or 8% in more damage they take!
You can see this with the moth balls and moth dust flying critters ... and the ones I end up with are the ones with numbers "even" ... like 289/289, because in a couple of battles, you can see the different ... you might do a smidget more damage, but in the bit hit you just went down! Likewise, you might not do a lot of damage, but you defend well ...
Lastly, searching for pets for a fight ... you can search by the spell/ability ... for example, for one fight I just type "bonestorm" and I get my 3 for that fight, or "ravage" for another battle and I have a choice of 6 or 7 pets, and my favorite, "fish slap" and I have 3 I can use! That's just an example.
