Powerleveling Guide
The most effective way to level up pets (apart from using Training Stones) is fighting against trainers. The majority of those encounters grant 5x more experience than defeating wild pets.
Unfortunately a lot of those are limited to just one fight a day. Therefor we need trainers which we can challenge repeatedly to use them for 'powerleveling'.

I want to list these here and also provide you with tips for this powerleveling.

1. Repeatable Trainers



1.1 Squirt



Since she is the most famous and best tamer for powerleveling she deserves her own topic. There are strategies enabling you do beat her in 80 seconds. On top of that right next to her is a NPC that can heal your pets after every fight for free. Unfortunately Squirt no longer grants experience to the player's character.

You can find her every 15 days in the menagerie of your garrison. A level 1 menagerie will do (level 2 to unlock the free healing) but this requires a level 3 garrison beforehand. Building the menagerie will also reward you with a Ultimate Battle-Training Stone which can upgrade one pet directly to level 25.

Squirt dates in 2020:

Recommended strategy:
Bronze Whelpling + Widget the Departed
Fight duration: ~1:20
Fast, reliable and safe for level 1 pets.

1.2 Tamers from Legion



Some of the tamers from Legion (almost all of which you need for 'Family Familiar') can also be challanged multiple times and give 5x the experience (just like Squirt).
It's worth looking out for their active world quests because only then they are available for fighting.
Unfortunately their appearence is decided randomly, so you can't plan ahead when to challenge them.

Since those tamers don't stand right next to a stablemaster you should bring enough Battle Pet Bandages with you.
But in return defeating these trainers also grants your character experience and that's why especially the short fights have become a popular method for leveling.
Using heirloom gear and activating warmode you can get (depending on your level, you can do this as early as level 1) as much experience doing this as you would from finishing a quest.

Here follows a list of the respective tamers, together with a recommended strategy and sorted by their effectiveness in powerleveling:


Sir Galveston
World quest: Fight Night: Sir Galveston
Location: Dalaran
Recommended strategy:
Court Scribe + Surger
Fight duration: ~1:10
Fast, reliable and safe for level 1 pets


Robert Craig
World quest: My Beast's Bidding
Location: Stormheim
Recommended strategy:
Stormborne Whelpling + Iron Starlette
Fight duration: ~1:15
Fast, reliable and safe for level 1 pets


Odrogg
World quest: Snail Fight!
Location: Highmountain
Recommended strategy:
Trecker + Teroclaw Hatchling
Fight duration: ~1:20
Fast, reliable and safe for level 1 pets

These fights rarely require bandages:
Xu-Fu, Cub of Xuen
Fight duration: ~1:35
and
Teroclaw Hatchling
Fight duration: ~1:45



Rydyr or Andurs
World quest: Beasts of Burden
Location: Stormheim
Rydyr:
Recommended strategy:
Draenei Micro Defender + Any Pet with Explode
Fight duration: ~0:30
Andurs:
Recommended strategy:
Iron Starlette
Fight duration: ~0:40
Note: Only repeatable if you fight just one of them, so you have to choose which one you want to use for leveling.
Once you've completed this world quest you can't challenge them again!
You get less experience from them then you would get from the other tamers listed here. In return these strategies are reliable and really fast.
Since these are short fights you'll need more bandages (or more teams).

World quest: Fight Night: Bodhi Sunwayver
Location: Dalaran
Recommended strategy:
Servant of Demidos + Stormstruck Beaver
Fight duration: ~1:25
Fast, reliable and safe for level 1 pets

2. Other possibilities



All the tamers listed have to be active to be usable for leveling the whole day. So what alternatives are there for days on which they aren't available?

2.1 Noteworthy Tamers



As described at the beginning these trainers grant a lot more experience than wild pets.
Therefor it is worthwile to fight those who also give 5x the experience (just like Squirt), even though they are opposable just once the day.
Admittedly you have to count in a considerable time for traveling. On the other hand you can get, besides the experience obviously, other useful rewards (even pets) and the daily quests grant a lot of experience to your character. Especially the daily routes through Pandaria and Draenor are popular for this reason. Often times characters are parked at Crysa and Environeer Bert or even at the Darkmoon Faire whenever it is active.


Warlords of Draenor Daily Quests


* Ashlei (even 6x the experience)
* Gargra
* Cymre Brightblade
* Taralune
* Vesharr
* Tarr the Terrible
Bigger Map

* Whispering Pandaren Spirit
* Thundering Pandaren Spirit
* Burning Pandaren Spirit
* Flowing Pandaren Spirit
Bigger Map


Darkmoon Faire Daily Quests

* Environeer Bert


Other Legion Fights (not repeatable, also require world quest)

* Beguiling Orb
World quest: Dazed and Confused and Adorable
Location: Azsuna
* Fragment of Fire
World quest: Only Pets Can Prevent Forest Fires
Location: Val'sharah
* Ominitron Defense System

* Madam Viciosa
World quest: Illidari Masters: Madam Viciosa
Location: The Broken Shore
* Nameless Mystic
World quest: Illidari Masters: Nameless Mystic
Location: The Broken Shore


2.2 Wild Pets



Of course you could go to all the remaining tamers, but because of the ever decreasing experience you'll reach a point at which the time for traveling isn't worth the rewards (even character experience and other stuff) anymore. Also these remaining ones are fightable only once a day aswell.
If you are still looking for a unrestricted way of leveling your pets there is only the option of fighting wild pets left.

In this situation it is clever to find a location in which are as many predictable pets of one family as possible so it becomes easy to create a team that can counter these pets the best.

Fastest Option in the Wilderness

The fastest alternative is fighting Icespine Hatchlings in Frostfire Ridge.
With the following team you'll need just 30-60 seconds for one fight and your pets will barely lose health so they can used more often before needing to be healed.

*Rotten Little Helper (1,1,1)
*Feline Familiar(1,1,1)
*Level pet (should have 300-500 health)

vs. Icespine Hatchling
-Booby-Trapped Presents
-Greench's Gift
-Club until enemy dies
vs. 2nd enemy
-Club until enemy dies
vs. 3rd enemy
-swap to level pet
-swap to Widget the Departed
-Stoneskin
-Onyx Bite until the enemy can be killed with Devour

TD-Script:
standby [round=1]
if [enemy(#1).active]
change(Rotten Little Helper:1349)
ability(Booby-Trapped Presents:1080)
ability(Booby-Trapped Presents:1080)
ability(Greench's Gift:1076)
ability(Club:1079)
endif
if [enemy(#2).active]
ability(Club:1079)
endif
if [enemy(#3).active]
change(Feline Familiar:319)
ability(Stoneskin:436) [!self.aura(Stoneskin:435).exists]

ability(Devour:538) [enemy.hp<=500]
ability(Onyx Bite:437)
endif

Thanks to Vakeetah for this great strategy and to Fifü for the TDScript!

Other noteworthy Locations and Pets

* Dancing Water Skimmer in Vale of Eternal Blossoms (~80% aquatics and ~20% fliers)
* Icespine Hatchling in Frostfire Ridge (~50% beasts, ~25% critters and ~25% fliers)
* Moonshell Crab in Shadowmoon Valley (Draenor) (~50% aquatics, ~30% fliers and 20% beasts)
* Critters in the Valley of the Four Winds (80% critters and 20% aquatics)
Especially the Marsh Fiddlers there are good for leveling level 1 pets since there is just a small chance for them dealing damage in the first turn.
* Dragonbone Hatchling in Dragonblight (~40% fliers, 30% critters and 30% aquatics)
Appropriate for leveling for the same reason. There also is a stablemaster nearby (at the temple) who makes the leveling more enjoyable.


Of course you can look for good locations yourselve. It's all a matter of having the right pets to counter the wild ones.
As an example for fighting aquatic pets both Golden Dawnfeather and Pterrordax Hatchling are suitable and against critters every cat with Devour will do great.
The Feline Familiar is even effective against fliers and critters, has a strong protection and also a healing ability (Devour), which is the reason why it is popular for leveling in the wilderness.
To provide a safe space for your leveling pet, a Turkey (and their named variants) can make any non-critter target sleep with Food Coma. A Lifelike Mechanical Frostboar can use Decoy instead, and heal itself with Pig Out. Whether it should be slower or faster depends on whether you swap to a third pet or not, respectively.


3. Tips, tricks and hints



3.1 Increasing the Experience



Although most tamers already grant a lot of experience it can be useful to increase that even more. All of the following increases can stack:

Experience Increases

*Safari Hat: 10% more experience.
It's a toy that can be used without cooldown. You get it as a reward for the achievement Taming the World.
*Lesser Pet Treat: 25% more experience for one hour.
Used on a pet as a target, but acts as a buff on you. Available at multiple pet vendors for 5 Polished Pet Charms.
*Pet Treat: 50% more experience for one hour.
Used on a pet as a target, but acts as a buff on you. Available at multiple pet vendors for 10 Polished Pet Charms.
*Darkmoon Top Hat: 10% more experience for one hour.
You can buy it from Gelvas Grimegate for 10 Prize Tickets while the Darkmoon Faire is active. The buff can run out while your character is logget out and it will also disappear when the Faire isn't active anymore.


During the time of the Pet Battle Bonus Event you get a buff for 200% more pet experience! Look out for it in your calandar and prepare your teams.

Dates for the Pet Battle Bonus Event in 2020

* January 22 - January 29
* March 11 - March 18
* April 29 - May 6
* June 17 - June 24
* August 5 - August 12
* September 23 - September 30
* October 11 - October 18
* December 20 - January 6



3.2 Required Amount of Fights



Depending on the active experience increases you'll need a different amount of fights to level a pet from level 1 to 25.

This list applies for every tamer which gives 5x experience (so ​​for all the listed tamers in the guide with the exception of Andurs/Rydyr, Ashlei and of course the fights against wild pets):

Without any increases:
1st fight: 10
2nd fight: 15
3rd fight: 18
4th fight: 21
5th fight: 23
6th fight: 24
7th fight: 25

With the Safari Hat:
1st fight: 11
2nd fight: 16
3rd fight: 19
4th fight: 22
5th fight: 23
6th fight: 25

With the Safari Hat and both Treats:
1st fight: 14
2nd fight: 20
3rd fight: 24
4th fight: 25

During the Pet Battle Bonus Event, without any further increases:
1st fight: 17
2nd fight: 24
3rd fight: 25

During the Pet Battle Bonus Event, with the Safari Hat:
1st fight: 17
2nd fight: 25

During the Pet Battle Bonus Event, with the Safari Hat and both Treats:
1st fight: 19
2nd fight: 25


3.3 Rematch and TD-Script



Especially in a powerleveling session when you are constantly repeating the same fights it is recommended to use Rematch and TD-Scripts. With those it is possible to execute an entire pet battle just by pressing one button.

Guide: Using Rematch + TD-Script

Good Luck!

The TD script given in the article for leveling pets using Icespine Hatchlings never actually swaps your leveling pet in btw.

To fix this, just add:
change(#3) [self(#1).active]

In a new line right after:
if [enemy(#3).active]

Great guide, highly useful when you're trying to power level pets.

While it takes some setup, if you can get the hallows end decorations in your garrison, there's one that causes battle pets to spawn. These pets have the advantage that as soon as you defeat them, they respawn. So you can just stay in one place and fight them over and over.

Also, don't ignore running current pet battle dailies. As of BFA, there are daily battles that pay pet charms. Collect 60 charms and you can level a pet from 1 right to 25 by buying a stone from the vendor in the pet store in Dalaran (Broken Isles). At an average payout of 15 charms, run four battles, mail the charms to a single alt and you're done. Four battles to level a pet from 1 to 25 is fast in anyone's book: faster than using Pandaria and WoD trainers.

I understand this is a Powerleveling for battle pets. But those of us who might have their collection all max level 25 - what would the optimal location be to level their alts and the best probable team of pets?

For example with a full heirloom set and the war mode buff, an alt can earn the same amount of XP from a single battle compared with a quest. The added bonus is you do not have to move or do anything besides press a button.

You no longer can do that inside the Garrison (I believe - perhaps I am wrong).

My best find has been a team of 3 level 25 moths and battling the Dancing Water Skimmer in Vale of Eternal Blossoms. There is a small group of 7 that you can complete in a simple cycle in about 8 minutes that lines up perfectly with the free heal. Often under 30 mins a level for 100 to 111, and 45mins per to 120. Obviously the gear ends up being crap on your character, etc.

With small kids who are willing to chill and watch me play - this has worked well for leveling alts instead of trying to stay alive during questing.

Does anyone else have recommendations for spots or teams for this type of alt character leveling?

Icespine Hatchlings in Frostfire Ridge. There's a levelling team mentioned above, but if you're not interested in levelling pets, and you have lots of bandages, then a Blackfuse Bombling and a Twilight Clutch-Sister speed the process up more than somewhat.

I used to do the Aquatics in Vale that you mention, and Critters in the field between Halfhill and Nishi as my character-XP method. Now it's all Icespines.

The downside of both Pandaria and Draenor, of course, is that your alt needs to be an appropriate level.

The other downside of levelling an alt by pet battles, I find, is that my brains start to dribble out my ears after about half a level, and my dry-cleaners are quite firm that they will not accept any more such stains, so I limit myself to finishing off a level now and then when I'm tired.

i don't know how much character xp xou gain from fighting wild pets (i guess it's not a lot) but if you want to use pet battles to also level up your alt then i would do the same thing: find a repeatable trainer listed above and beat them.
i've done that before and this kinda works for leveling (was far too boring for my taste tho) (edited)

Completely understandable - I mostly do it when my young son wants to hang out with me and I cannot actively level a character. He frequently interrupts and asks questions, so my brain cells don't die immediately lol.

I will look through the repeatable trainers and the Icespine - since I do have a large number of bandages.

For XP reference (from memory of Darkmoon Faire the past week)
I have heirlooms that give 55% xp bonus + Darkmoon 10% buff = 65% extra
100 lvl xp was 16000-17000
110 lvl xp was 18500-19000
119 lvl xp was 23000-24000

Or around that range - I do this again I will do a baseline xp, then heirloom boosted xp for reference.

I looked into AoE vs single target pets for quick wins and it feels like single target is faster. (edited)

So on my level 100 Mage

Warnode only 10%
7 rounds - 12540xp

Warmode and Heirloom (helm, shoulder, chest, back, leg, one ring)
9 rounds - 17328 xp
6 rounds - 18240 xp

And on my 103 DK

Warmode only
12226 xp

Warmonde+ Heirlooms
9 rounds - 17784 xp and 18720 xp

So there seems to be an increase of about 220xp per level for each battle. (edited)

*Sigh* I did this exercise and recorded it before, but I can't find it now, so I did it again:

4 battles against Icespines. Level 112 character. No heirlooms. No Warmode.

Time for 4 battles: 3:05
Total XP needed for level: 837,930
Starting XP: 121,017
Ending XP: 165.455
XP gain: 44,438
Average XP gain per battle: 11,109
Average XP gain per hour: 864,272
Average battles/level: around 80
Average Level gain per hour: 1.03

Notes:
1. I used Murkalot/BfB/TCS, which is optimum for speed, but not everyone has Murkalot.
2. Time included bandaging, stepping to next Icespine, engaging
3. Heirlooms do work with pet battle XP, but here I did it without to get a baseline
4. Keeping up that routine for more than half an hour, as I said above, makes me crazy.

Takeaway: levelling this way is competitive with questing on an XP/hour basis.

Another day of running Squirt. I can't imagine what Lio thinks of me, every 2 minutes running over and saying 'my Dragon is dead again, FIX IT!!!!" Good thing we don't have an ASPCA in this game.

I'm telling you people, if you don't have Bronze Whelpling (speed build of 325) and Widget, sink the money into getting them. The strat has been 100% perfect for me.

Hey all, I like levelling lv1s at Vale of Eternal Blossoms on the Aquatics there (listed above as Dancing Water Skimmer) It's right outside both horde and alliance shrines/towns so easy to access and safe for low level characters.

Three spots fairly close with 3/4 pets each so you can use treats and not run out of pets to fight.

Spots:
/way 74, 57
/way 87, 46
/way 73, 27

Team:
1. Levelling pet
2. Teroclaw Hatchling / Moth
3. Moth

And here is the script I wrote, it'll still run with two moths, but the Teroclaw does double hits and has heals via ravage for the grind sustain. The underwater bit is for the secondary pet Civets who dive, you can attack them as primary over skimmers quite easily.

Script:
use(#1) [round=1]
change(#2) [round=2]

if [enemy.aura(Underwater:830).exists]
use(Dodge:312)
endif

if [enemy.hp<=500]
use(Ravage:802)
endif

use(Alpha Strike:504)

use(Cocoon Strike:506)
use(Moth Dust:508)
use(Slicing Wind:420)

if [self(#3).dead & self(#1).active]
use(#1)
endif

change(next)

I made a script for 2 moths, too. I'm going to try yours, but I thought I'd leave mine here, too. (It's for the same areas you mentioned.)
I'm using an Ashwing Moth and a Luyu Moth, with the leveling pet in the 1st slot.
Ashwing Moth: abilities 1, 2, 1.
Luyu Moth: abilities 2, 1, 2
It's the very first pet battle script I've ever made, so it's really sloppy, but hey... it works. lol.

use(#1) [ round=1 ]
change(#2) [ self(#1).active ]
use(#2) [ enemy.aura(Underground:340).exists ]
use(#2) [ enemy.aura(PumpedUp:296).exists ]
use(#2) [ enemy.aura(Survival:283).exists ]
use(#2) [ enemy.aura(Underwater:830).exists ]
use(#3)
standby [ self.aura(Asleep).exists ]
standby [ self.aura(Polymorphed).exists ]
change(#3) [ self(#2).dead ]
ability(#1)

Edit/Update: Dang, that teroclaw hatchling rips through these battle pets. This is awesome. Thank you for sharing your script with us. (edited)

While I'm not a casual pet leveler, I hadn't done much research. Thus I didn't know how massively awesome Squirt was until a few days before yesterday's arrival. I went in with the bronze whelpling / widget combo, and with a hat, a 50% pet treat and maybe 12 of the 150+ level stones I had for that final one level push, I managed to get 44 more pets to lvl 25 (558, all rares). In 15 more days I'll be prepared to work again, and I can't wait until May when it coincides with the pet leveling week where I can do clean-up on the rest of my pets. (edited)

Something I've been pondering about pet charms and leveling.

When Shadowlands comes out, we'll get a new form of pet charm currency. Do you think it's reasonable to expect that Polished and Shiny charms will be combined into one or the other, and of course all BFA and previous will cost that currency?

I ask because I have a LOT of shiny pet charms. If this were to happen, I could buy all my BFA battle pets after Shadowlands releases. If it has a good chance of happening, my polished pet charms would be better spent buying training stones to turn good pets into rares to boost my dungeon teams.

Thoughts?

Quite likely! Would fit well with how other currencies are treated over expansions. I just hope we'll know well in advance before any actual change :D

i doubt they're going to merge the older charms. my bet is blizz will just implement a newer charm for shadowlands and remove some of the vendor items you were able to buy with the polished charms.
but hopefully we'll see that on the beta/ptr before shadowlands goes live

I could have sworn that when BFA came out, we had a merging of Legion and Warlords pet currency, because suddenly I was able to buy all the Legion content even though I hardly had any charms for that expansion.

I'm figuring on the regular stuff, like the training stones of all sorts, will move to the new currency of course, but the pets will now be old and would be the old currency.

wod and legion had the same currencies because they didn't make a new charm for legion. i guess they didn't bother because there weren't so many new things to buy with the shiny charms in legion as there are in bfa

Thanks for the great guide! Small mistake I noticed: The next pet battle bonus event starts at March 11th, not March 13th as mentioned in the "Dates for the Pet Battle Bonus Event in 2020 " section :)

I think you're mistaking the intention of the date, 11th March is when the Week begins in EU, but 13th is when Squirt is up that week.

Nope, I'm explicitely talking about the upcoming bonus event dates in section 3.1 - which lists squirt day as start day (13th) while it should be the Wednesday before (11th)

Oh, you're right. I'll poke someone.

Edit: Fixed. Thanks, Shenk! (edited)
