I tried the instance reset and nothing would spawn. I decided to kill the frogs near the lakes and wait for the reset and one finally spawned. When I was battling, it looks like you initially kill it and I panicked. The frog retreats and ends up being the last pet you battle. Good luck!

Found my Yellow Junkhopper in the Operation: Mechagon instance on Mechagon. I reset I believe four times before one spawned on the shore near instance Rustbolt. Rare on my first try! I also found a rare Duskytooth Snooter on one of my resets as well. Happy hunting!

Found mine without any reset or doing anything. He was near Rolly Gulper on that lake at 46.4,30.0. Was in the water . A bit hard to make him to combat me due not available path.

Good luck.

I don't know that the dungeon tip works anymore. I've reset 80 times so far, and the only frogs that spawn are outside of the range you're allowed to be in. I've tried tiger dashing out and tagging one but they're just too far and I get vaporized every time.

The dungeon reset tip worked out great. Took about 15 resets.  Don't be discouraged that there's no pets to battle on the Alliance beach.  Just keep resetting and checking the beach and it'll be there eventually.

Oh man. Took some weeks to find this of loggin there and looking for it while grinding rep for flying.


I am glad it has only one breed type available so i dont have to look for a p/p or a h/h

Followed the advice of going into Mechagon, just now on my second try a rare Yellow junkhopper!  Second pet was a Clanking scrapsorter without explode up but I captured the Yellow junkhopper.  Seemed the harder to get.

Took the advice of some of the posters here and tried resetting the dungeon and checking with a /tar Yellow Junkhopper macro each time.  The eighth time that I entered the dungeon I had a Yellow Junkhopper on the beach.  Got stupid and killed it by accident.  Came back in an hour and started entering the dungeon, running the macro, then exiting and resetting the dungeon again.  Got another Yellow Junkhopper on the beach on the ninth try, and captured it.

Just got an uncommon one directly north of the horde FP on the beach it was the primary pet. Just flew around moonfiring all the fleeting frogs (battle and non battle ones) on a path from horde beach across to the lake then down the west coast. Think it took four passes to spawn :D

I got mine right after maintenance over on the west coast of the island by the little gnome.  I had tried going into the Mechagon dungeon and resetting several times over the course of days, but never saw one.  This was the first and only one I have ever seen.

This was by far the worst Mechagon pet to catch. I finally had one spawn for me on the south-west coast of the main island, opposite the western spray islands after around 2 hours of waiting in the same spot. Prior to this, I killed every critter, and every fleeting frog pet that spawned in the area. 

This is nothing more than an arduous waiting game.

Got tired of resets so went in and just kept killing the non-battle beach Fleeting Frog until the Yellow Junkhopper appeared.  First time there was a rare Experimental Roach add and couldn't resist so had to repeat until a second Junkhopper showed up.


I am so done with that.

I have seen so many ways to get this pet, yesterday(14/04/2020) i was alone all day in the south west spot, NOTHING spawned, not even a plant. So today i lets it until dark, (21.08 PM UK time, so thats 22.08 EU time) on QT realm.There it was and a green. I didnt care what type it was aka uncommon ect, i just snagged it and stoned it. I have thought for a while if it was a time of day thing, maybe it is maybe its not, but for me daytime was a deffo NONO.

I got this and the Roach from resetting the Mechagon dungeon, the roach spawned near the path where you zone in (near the beach) the Junkhopper just around to the left of it.

Without a doubt the BEST tip I've ever seen on this site. I took the advice I found here and went into the Mechagon instance. It only took 12 resets until I had my Yellow Junkhopper, two achievements, and a new Kelpfin pet!

The frogs of Mechagon had two choices when faced with mechanization: hide or breed. This species chose the former.
