Patch 4.3.0 | Posted: November 29, 2011

This pet is redeemed through the common 'Bloat the Bubble Fish' loot card from the World of Warcraft Throne of the Tides TCG expansion. The card may be scratched to reveal a code allowing access to this pet. The code may be redeemed at Blizzard's promotion retrieval page. The pet may be obtained in-game from Landro Longshot in Booty Bay.

The Purple Puffer has a unique summoning animation in which the player's hands are enveloped with globes of water, and a splashing animation and noise is made upon the pet's spawning.

Just in case no one said it: Surge will stop the other player from getting that possible extra hit off on you if they have a faster benefited move. It can be the saving grace vs fliers some times when you are waiting to use pump on them.

I won mine from a contest on Wowhead a couple of years ago.  Looking forward to leveling him up.

I feel like this pet is highly underrated in battle. One of my favorites to use from the aquatics, very strong.

This is a pet I have been trying to buy on the AH! It would be an awesome addition to PvE and I think PvP as well.


Maybe I'll see a good deal on the AH soon, but most times its too much or not on sale

If you find this on AH get it! 325 power aquatic with excellent moveset. Only thing it is missing is some avoidance, but you get a heal instead. Pump hit VERY hard, especially on elementals. And Surge hits for alot as well when you add 10% bonus from Pump. Pair it with a Cleansing Rain user or a Jademist Dancer and your moves will be boosted even further, +25%. Hard hitter with versatility in going first or not.

He is a really nice battle pet vs elementals. His power/power breed 4 really makes for a nice heal and good damage as well.

It looks like with the new patch the dark bubble is now replaced with a nice clear bubble so you can see your cute little puffer, same with the sea pony. They also add some cute noises for the puffer :)

I agree with the other reviews... I was excited to get this pet but the bubble is so dark that I cant even see him in there unless I really look. :/ The swirling blue and white specks are so distracting it really just looks more like a pet bubble. It would be way cooler with the fish, possibly a tiny bit larger, and a slower spinning/undulating clearish orb. Bubbles are clear!

Love this little guy, (I have a thing for puffer fish, soo cute <3)
But I'm with you guys, dissapointed that there is no *puffing* idle animation, and the bubble is too *solid* to really see the little guy.

Still it's utterly cute when flying and you have your fish in a bubble bobbing along :D

Two major downsides - No idle animation, but I can deal with that - but the almost transparent but not transparent enough bubble? You have to look hard even realize what you are looking at. Hopefully Blizzard makes the bubble a lot more bubble-like so we can see our little friends.

I'm kinda loving and hating this pet. His flippers and tail move, and his eyes look around as he gently bobs in his bubble, but he has no special idle animation. The bubble skin has partially-transparent blue swirls that revolves around the fish, making it hard to see the fish when on ground-level (i suggest viewing him from atop a tall mount). I wish they would make it more transparent from the sides so that I can see him better. Btw, he does float along beside your flying mount when flying! :)

Adorable, but I am a little disappointed it has no idle. I was kinda hoping for at least an occasional PUFF! or blowing bubbles or something. Ahh well.

You might think this fish out of water would be a weak opponent... until you see the intensity that lies within its protective bubble.
