Pet Battle System

Previewed at BlizzCon 2011, the Pet Battle System allows most formerly non-combat pets, also known as companions, to become battle pets and battle each other for bragging rights, leveling, and addition of abilities. While this feature was not released until the Mists-Logo-Small Mists of Pandaria expansion was released, the expansion will not be required use the pet battle system and will be available to all players.

This system will act much like a secondary profession and will be available to all players.

Companions will now be able to battle each other in a new turn-based combat system to level up and unlock new abilities. Pets will also be able to encounter and battle pets in the wild to capture them for the player. Players will be able to fight with teams of pets up to 3 for each player at a time. Customization, progress status, abilities and info will be tracked in a new Pet Journal.

Eventually you will be able to seek out new Master Pet Tamer NPCs (were called master pet trainer) to learn new pet abilities from them if your pet is worthy and can defeat the trainer's pet.

Engaging in pet battles may award the player experience similar to gathering professions. Players may disable invites to pet battles.

To get the highest percentage possible of participants, Blizzard has decided that players will not know the identity of players they are fighting against. This is to avoid trash-talking. Another way they are hoping to diminish the negativity involved in some aspects of PvP, they are also only recording wins.

In patch 5.3

Battle pet hit accuracy will change in Patch 5.3, including that the chance of pets dodging attacks and pets missing will be reduced.

A “hit chance” will be listed for all abilities and this value will update if the pet is affected by abilities that increase or reduce the chance to hit
The base 5% chance to dodge will be removed.
The chance to miss opponents of higher levels from 5% per level to 2% per level.
The base 5% chance to gain a critical strike (for 1.5x damage) will remain and +/- 10% damage variance on all abilities.

Basics from Beta FAQ:

PvE battles take place in two ways: against NPC trainers and against pets that you can fight in the world. Pet tracking will let you find pets in the world that you can fight and capture. Keep an eye out!
PvP battles also have two varieties. You can choose to duel another player or you can queue up and be matched against another player of similar skill. Note that you do not earn XP for duels.
Pets heal a portion of their health after every fight. The amount healed is 50% of the damage that they took during the fight. You can also full heal all of the pets in your journal with the [Revive Battle Pets]ω ϖ spell (10 min cooldown; 3 min warmup after login).
If one of your pets die in battle you can resurrect it using the Revive Battle Pets spell or just find a friendly, neighborhood Stable Master.
