Battle Pets: Not all Rare Battle Pets stats are the same
Being working at leveling up my Battle Pets. Got one Battle Pet to lvl 25 and the other 2 are at lvl 24. One thing I noticed is that not all Rare Battle Pets have the same stats.
I've got a very good track record so far in being able to spot and catch Rare Battle Pets in a Pet Battle. It takes a while to get used to being able to spot a Rare Battle Pet in a group your fighting. Rare Battle Pets have a large combination of Attack and Speed stats, way more than others of the same exact type, as well they often have very good health stats. When caught their stats change slightly and become normalized in some way after getting caught. So I caught 1 Rare Cockroach.
Then I somehow for some odd reason decide to try and catch another. And in the very next Pet Battle I spotted it in the group and caught it. Hmm stats look a little different. Wonder if I can catch another one and see what the stats are like.
And not long after I in a few more Pet Battles I caught another Rare Cockroach. And what do you know this one also has just slightly different stats. Damn Cockroaches are evil, they will outlast us all.
From what I can tell so far in all the Battle Pets I've caught, you can get slightly different stats on Rare Battle Pets of the same unique kind as well different stats of lower quality Battle Pets as well of the same kind. One thing I have done so far is once I catch a higher quality Battle Pet of that type I immediately get rid of any Poor or Common quality of that Pet type. Leaves me room to later catch either a Uncommon or Rare Battle Pet of the same kind and keep my Pet collection a bit tidy.
