IT'S ALIVE!!!1!!1!!1111!

Click here to access the Database proper.


Yes, I'm finally done. The Minipets Database is LIVE!

This is an alphabetical listing of all the pets currently available in game (and those that will be available when pet battles go live in Pandaria). This includes balloons and kites (which can't battle, but are included for completists everywhere), plus some pets that have been removed since the last beta build. There is also a spot for Jacob the Test Seagull because I didn't have the heart to delete him and I hope, maybe one day, he will return in some form. That means, as it stands, it's a list of 504 pets. However, you only get to have 500 maximum in game, so DON'T PANIC!

In time I will update this database with co-ordinates and pictures of EVERY pet I capture, thus building a complete picture of where to find what in Azeroth and beyond. This also shows (as of right now) which pets will be tradeable and which pets will be classified as Rare (giving an increase to HP and Speed) Please note, this information is NOT confirmed and is subject to change on Expansion release. As soon as I have confirmed details on Rares and trades staus, it will go into the database.

I intend to keep this list as current as possible, so please check back often. The site has it's own URL (http://www.petbattles.net/) for your browsing convenience but you can also access it via the graphic at the top right of my webpage here or via the special Pet Battle page I've set up (link also on the right of the homepage) There will also be, in time, a map of all zones and the level pets you will find in them, plus a list of all the Master Pet Battlers and their locations, plus which pets they will put up against you in their fights!

I'm looking forward to lots of people pointing out mistakes and corrections to be made (as its just been me working on this for the best part of two months on the data entry side) Please feel free to message me on twitter (@AlternativeChat) or leave notes in the comments if you see summat that needs fixing. I'll be right on it!

Finally a huge thanks must go to @caerphoto (Andy) on Twitter whose coding makes this whole thing look wonderfully professional and without whom this entire exercise would never have happened at all. Thank you, Andy!

Clicked a few at random. Spotted a typo on the flavour text entry for 'Jubling' - "trange brews".

Thank you so much for this! I love it. <3

Sephrenya said...

It is fabulous! Thanks and well done for all your hard work :)

Chris said...

Impressive!

Katzbalger said...

wait wait wait, there's 504 and I only get to have 500?! This is not acceptable Blizzard, gotta catch them all!

lometa said...

Wonderful! Thank you Godmother! Thank you Andy!

TheGrumpyElf said...

That is pretty cool, great work there.

We have a 500 limit but there are more than 500. I see a problem here folks. :(

How do I choose which ones not to get? Not to mention I can't have any extras either?

This will not work out well, expect an increase as soon as the masses hit the forums and complain.

The Godmother said...

No, you didn't read properly there Mr G. Elf. The extra 5 aren't collectable. There's 4 that were in the last beta push that have subsequently been removed, and there's Jacob the Test Seagull, and NO-ONE gets to own him (yet)...

Cymre said...

Great job. Well done!

Grats on the WoWinsider spot! http://wow.joystiq.com/2012/09/06/comprehensive-battle-pet-database-from-alt-ernative/

The Godmother said...

Am very happy indeed! :D

Hi, your database is amazing. I know you proably get this sort of thing all the time, but if you need another hand in helping do pet research, I'd love to help. I made my own guide over on Wowhead: http://www.wowhead.com/guide=1212 . I recognize that it's nowhere near your level, but I did do all of the research myself, including taking alot of the screenshots. Right now I'm about half done compiling every pet's moveset. Thanks again for your hard work.

AresGodofWar said...

This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you very much for this.

I've been trying to find blogs that talk about the intricacies of pet battles and different strategies. Hopefully your blog can help me out :). Thank you

Eva said...

Ahhh Congratulations! It looks AMAZING and is sure to be a very wonderful resource!

I really like the idea and what you've done so far! I was wondering if there are any plans to be able to sort pets by zone? I think this would be really useful for people trying to capture everything. I know that's how I personally plan on trying to complete my collection, going zone by zone and getting everything available in each zone.

The Godmother said...

Yup, we hope to have searches both by zone and by type active in the near future :D

Yippeee! I don't know how I missed that it is live. Fantastic work it is amazing :) This is really going to help in MoP!

One point that doesn't even have anything do do with the actual site is the link on this site under "Other Areas of Interest Include..." > "The Minipets Database Area" is a broken link.

Now bring on the pet battles :D

It looks like I am going to have to kill the darkmoon wabbit after all!

Diana said...

Would it be at all possible to get these listed by zone? That would save countless hours of having to go back for that one pet I missed; otherwise, it's perfect!

Going through your current list and under the F section I noticed one that I recently caught that you don't have up yet. I found a Fluxifire Feline in the Train Depot area of Gnomeregan just before the entrance to the instance. Needless to say, its another Gnomish Mechanical.

At last count, we can have 3 of each pet and up to 650 pets. I am not sure if that is 650 total, or 650 individual pets regardless of doubles.
