Pet Battle Journal: Sort Features
Several search filters have been added to the Pet Battle Journal.
Name: Sort pets in alphabetical order.
Level: Search by highest to lowest.
Rarity: Group pets together by Rare, Uncommon, Common, and Poor quality.
Type: Group pets by family (Beast, Mechanical, etc).
Zone Maps: Levels of Wild Battle Pets
Players can now see the levels of wild battle pets per zone with the in-game map. The levels show up beneath the zone's name, colored green, yellow, or orange depending on the level of your own pet team (similar to quests). Zones that are too difficult show up as red, in a smaller font than the others.
Players can have up to three copies of most pets collected. In-game tooltips now display how many copies of a pet a player owns. If a player already has three pets, that information is displayed in red. In addition, the tooltip displays the rarity of your pet now.
