The best PVP Battle Pets!.



A list of the current best PVP Battle Pets, this can guide your pet choices when either first starting off or when you are looking to mix up your teams. It gives you an idea of which pets to obtain and level up so you can be competitive in the PVP queue. I have separated the pets into 3 groups: Tier 1 being the strongest possible pets available at present, Tier 2 being extremely strong and Tier 3 being very good choices in for any team.



1. Tier


These pets are currently overpowered and will often be able to carry your whole team. You can probably freely use any other half decent pets to earn a good ratio of wins.

S/S Fiendish Imp
Murkalot
P/S Twilight Clutch-Sister

2. Tier


These pets can sometimes carry your whole team and with a half decent team will get you lots of wins. Its more important with these pets to build a team that works well with your choice.

Vengeful Porcupette
P/P Parasitic Boarfly
S/S Rabbits
Blossoming Ancient/Broot with Sunlight/Photosynthesis
S/B or P/P Blazehound with Magma Trap
Magma Rageling
S/S Rose Taipan/Death Adder Hatchling
S/S Sneaky Marmot
Fel-Afflicted Skyfin
P/S or P/P Direhorns
Call Darkness Fliers with 292+ speed or 300+ power
S/S Qiraji Guardling
Twilight
P/P or P/S Rebellious Imp
Wyrmy Tunkins
Boghopper
Fozling

3. Tier


These are pets that will perform well in the queue and using these pets to build a team will obtain good results.
You will have to use at least one other pet that combo's well with these pets to get the best results.

S/S or P/S Alpine Foxling
Orphaned Felbat
P/P or S/S Autumnal Sproutling
S/S Nightshade Sproutling
S/S Pygmy Marsuul
S/S Frostfur Rat
S/S Jademist Dancer
Warbot
Magical Crawdad
Purple Puffer
H/H Unborn Val'kyr
Anubisath Idol
S/S or P/P Ore Eater
P/S Crusher
H/H Spirit Crab
Curious Wolvar Pup
H/H or P/P Iron Starlette
H/P Blightbreath
Blue Flitter
P/B Infernal Pyreclaw
Tinytron
S/S Bronze Whelpling
P/S Shimmering Aquafly with another Aquatic pet
Mechanical Prairie Dog
Podawith lucky dance synergy
Restored Revenant
Returned Hatchling
Zandalari Shinchomper

The list will be kept up to date as possible and pets will be added or removed as the PVP meta evolves.

I welcome feedback and suggestions especially if you feel certain pets are missing. I tried to keep the list as short as possible so some pets may have just missed out to prevent the list from becoming too long or daunting.

Once the BFA prepatch hits I will try to review the list but this will take a few hundred games before I am able to assess any potential shifts in the meta.

Thanks guys Rosqo.

Fixed the double TCS. Idol is there but t3 struggles way too much vs faster pets, it’s literally just a stall pet that makes games longer than required whilst rnging it up.
After Haunt nerf imp is extremely strong again.
The tier 0 term emerged after all these pets were designated t1, this list changes that.

So the direhorns... I only see one of them (Pygmy Direhorn) with a PS breed, and none of them seem to have PP. Unless my addon is wrong.

Rebellious better than Fiendish? I think that current list is correct in more circumstances

PVP can be tricky. After winning 250 battles, I've learned that skill does play a role against players with no skill. The best of teams will lose at least 30% of the time because of the teams they're paired against Best simple advice I can give to new players, is get a team that makes sense with the moves they have, learn about breeds, and have 3 or 4 different teams ready to go with Rematch add-on. If you are paired with a team that you have no chance against, switch to another team and you'll either have a good chance to beat the last guy or a whole new ball game. Example that did well is SS cogblade raptors w/ stormwing. Stormwing is a flyer with lightning storm, coupled with fast raptors is a good combo. Also have a team ready to combat whatever the popular opposing team seems to be. A lot of players do a search on the best teams without really having any skill and you're up against Teroclaw Hatchling, Bone Serpent and Ghastly Kid. An easy team to beat if you're prepared but annoying if you're going for achieves.

Rng needs to be reduced in pet battles and a sandstorm equivalent of nocturnal strike needs adding.
I have several teams with wing rates over 98%, I have another at 95% and a third at 93%, all at 100 plus wind.
The evolved meta particularly sandstorm or sunlight are preventing those kinda ratios going forward. It pretty lame. Oh well next expansion calling it not

Letters represent pet's breed. S for speed, P for power, H for health, B for Balance. Letters are usually combined, more on this here: " Using Letters to Represent Breed ID" https://www.warcraftpets.com/wow-pet-battles/breeds/
