The below lists show pets most commonly used in strategies on Xu-Fu.
They are by no means an ultimate guide, but should give you a good indication of their importance and usefulness in PvE pet battles.
I love your site and use it often. There is now an ad that constantly pops up in the top left corner. Not ideal spot since it covers most of the links/content =( Can we donate to remove ads or contribute to keep from ads ruining the user experience? I've been in web development for 15 years, I know it's not cheap to run a high demand website but please ad a premium service then! I'd GLADLY pay to remove ads and provide you compensation for the amazing work you all do!
Can you send me a screenshot of the ads if possible? Happy to move them / change them. firstname.lastname@example.org :-)
There is a donation option on the front page but even without that, there is a very simple "premium" version that removes almost all ads: just register an account ^^ It's free and you don't need to add any personal information. Hope that helps!
Nice guide. Thank you very much for your work. After using it for awhile, I found it to be very useful and may I make a suggestion to link these pets with the pet collection imported. This way, I can immediately see which pet I dont have?
This is spookily close to my T1 and T2 lists. Just a couple of differences, and the commonality I find most interesting is the number in each tier. There does seem to be a natural break after about 15 pets.
My suggestion is that this list badly needs suggested and preferred breeds, for any newcomer who might use it for guidance.
That's a great point! I hadn't thought of that. While the site does allow for breed requirements, there are also other constraints like minimum speed or power that are hard or misleading to capture in a list derived from the data.
And indeed breed is not always so simple, and we do keep different breeds for different cases.
I'll drop in the survey answers for the species mentioned in these lists, as a comment, at least. I think it's safe to say that a newcomer will not regret choosing the most popular breed of a species.
