  • Same family
  • Has the required skills
  • Has the required stats (if specified)
  • Ignores specific breed requirements for the main pet, as breeds can be very different for substitutes

This worked for me with one exception, after Pandaren Water Spirit dives and misses the swap in, have it pass for the geyser to go off and stun Shadeflicker. Then Spirit dies and you can bring in the Water Waveling and get off the Frost Shock on still stunned Shadeflicker and he will be fast enough now to get Ice Lance first . As well, Ominous Flame will go first to finish.

Does not work with any breed of Fel Flame as a substitute. Only H/S has enough speed to be faster than a Frost Chocked Shadeflicker, and even then you need to lower its HP before battle. However, H/S doesn't do enough damage to kill Shadeflicker. Don't waste your time with a Fel Flame, this strat needs an Ominous Flame.

Okay, giving up on the B/B water wavleling strat. Close to 20 tries now and still can't get it to work. Far too much RNG for that whole combo to even be in here.

Yeah, this is another terribly misleading strategy; I hope everyone reads these comments. H/S Water waveling cannot win this. As a matter of fact, it should be changed to say something like "Breed: DON'T use H/S"

Actually I used H/S Water Waveling and on the second attempt this strategy did work.
Problem is many of the battles on Argus are RNG. Sometimes the luck is there, other times, its a rinse and repeat until a win. Gave it a 4 star because of the RNG factor. Otherwise its a doable strategy.

I don't know why this was downvoted. This is the second strat that Didi has linked, and both of them were spot on. Thank you Didi. This strat worked the FIRST time.

Worked on the first try and there only seemed to be a little RNG involved. As far as I'm concerned, this is the only strategy worth spending time on so far on this page of comments. Thank you!

As stated, it may, indeed, take a few tries to work. It can be extremely frustrating to lose time after time with your opponent at 32 HP or 40 HP. Grrrr! Hang in there, though, it WILL work eventually. Thanks for the strategy, Tsoonami (great name!), and for the wonderful website, XuFu.

After finally winning this battle with my H/S Water Waveling and making my post above, I noticed Mynnerva's and Konne's posts. I tried it again with my B/B Water Waveling and won the first try. Shadeflicker was about 100 HP lower when Ominous Flame came in for the kill shot and took him right out. My guess is that B/B's slightly extra power offsets his lower health. Maybe give it a try if you have a B/B. Good luck!

Ah, I see. Yeah, I was late getting to the Argus pet challenge. Almost done with it, just need to find a couple more strats that don't require the Gulp Froglet (I'm determined to complete the ach without it).
