This does not work for pets with out enough HP to soak 3 quakes. The level pet needs a min health value. (edited)

Worked fine but to refresh an earlier comment that L1 can die to Pounder's back line damage.

Sprite Darter died to rupture and couldn't remotely last long enough to even meet Mutilator.

Just a week ago this strat worked. I'm also having issues with other pet battles being more difficult than before. I wonder if they upped the difficulty for no reason. (edited)

Ì've seen SO many comments saying "This used to work, but now it doesn't" and "I wonder if they've made the battle harder". None of them have been right.

They have never made a battle harder. Rarely, changes in our pets abilities may mean that strats that used to work no longer do, like the late lamented HowlBomb or the upcoming Shattered Drfenses nerf, but never the battles themselves.

But most strats are vulnerable to crits or misses, and if there is a 1 in 400 chance that a strat will fail (like two crits in a row) people for whom it normally works start to think that something has changed with the battle itself, instead of realising they they have git rare, but possible, bad RNG that was there all along.

I'm not familiar with this strat, or perhaps it was just so long ago that I don't remember it, so I can't be specific, but if you think there's something wrong with the battle, or the strat, install Pet Battle Log Keeper addon and look over the battle when done, and look for unusual crits.

Strat works perfectly, just be careful when leveling a Lvl 1 beast pet, as one crit in the backline can kill it.

I think the reason this strat might be failing for some people is because they're misreading it and casting moonlight to replace Pounder's sandstorm -- and it looks tempting, yes, but you need the sandstorm to mitigate the damage your backline pets are taking.

As I'm still quite a novice in pet battling, I don't quite understand why this works for some and not for others. I switched to this strategy after several of the others failed time and again, and this is the only one that has not yet failed me, and was a lot quicker - fingers crossed after this so as not to jinx myself! XD

This strat is rubbish, NOT working at all even WITH S/S Sprite Darter Hatchling (as this pet is available ONLY in S/S breed). Pity.... What worked PERFECTLY and was 100% reliable anytime I tried, was wowhead's Kalyn007 strat:
1. Syd the Squid - tidal wave x3 - bubble - tidal wave x8, after Syd dies swap to >>>
2. carry pet, swap to >>>
3. Chrominius - arcane explosion x3 - howl - arcane explosion - surge of power. Done ;)))

You're dead wrong. This strat has always worked. Before I quit, I ran this strat every single day without fail. I just did it again with no problem. Maybe you're missing a step of the strat and that's what's going wrong for you.

The only issue I have with the strat is the use of a Lvl 1+ pet to level. There are back row attacks that can kill most L1 pets.

Use Chi-Chi 2-1-1 Darkmoon Tonk 1-1 2 and Lvl Pet with enough HP to survive the quakes
Start with Leveller cast anything then bring in Chi-Chi
With Chi-Chi Use Ethereal to dodge the Whirlpool. Keep Tranquility up. Otherwise Alpha Strike. Chi-Chi will solo Crusher and Pounder and bring Mutilator to under 1K before dying. Ion cannon with Tonk.
