Unpleasant experiences are a part of becoming the most incredible Pet Battles champion you can be. You’re surrounded by enemies, challenged at every corner, and put to the test with each encounter. And yet you remain squishy. Blah blah, you’ve begun to show some signs of becoming a lean machine, blah blah blah. Yet you’re still too impatient, too hasty with what you hope to achieve. Hurry up and slow down!
When I was a boy, I would visit my crazy grandfather who lived in a shack in Stranglethorn Vale and loved to go fishing. Every day he’d gather up a pile of Goblin Fishing Bombs he pilfered from Booty Bay, jump into his skiff, and carpet the Southern Savage Coast in search of a 33 Pound Catfish. When I’d come to visit, he’d make me use less interesting techniques to help him: I’d have to fetch a switch, whittle it to a point, and then he’d tie a rope around me and toss me overboard. En garde, poisson!
Since then, I’ve been the first and only person to skewer two of the elusive gill-breathers in one lunge. My success was due to—I mean, come on! Look at me! You, on the other hand, need more practice . . . and that’s just what you’re gonna get. Crithto!
Crithto: The elusive Tiny Blue Carp is your next assignment. Rumored to be found in the Vale of Eternal Blossoms and Townlong Steppes, this bubbly feller might be cute to the untrained eye, but can easily delve out some serious damage. It has basic moves that are pretty punishing, like combining Wild Magic with Surge—but when coupled with a pet that can create Arcane Winds, the Tiny Blue Carp is a squall of watery death! Hint: Psychic Blast and Mana Surge can be a tidal wave of pain. ;)
Grab your rod and reel, tamers! I’ve got nothing left for ya other than this weary look on my face at your malleable feels. WHO WANTS TO BORROW MY FISH-POKING STICK?!
