About Battle Pet BreedID

Battle Pet BreedID is a standalone addon that will display the Breed of any pet in the following situations:

  • In Battle
  • In your Pet Journal's scroll list
  • In your Pet Journal's pet description tooltips
  • In Item tooltips
  • In Chat Link tooltips
  • In the "Collected ..." line (with BattlePetCount installed)

Theorycrafting is up to you... but if you know what stats you value most, now you can find them! To learn how the Breed ID affects your pets, go here:

This addon uses the letter system by default (B/B for breed ID 3, etc), but if you want to switch to the number system used by other resources, just type "/breedid" or go to Interface->AddOns to open the Battle Pet BreedID options panel. You can change the format type at the top in the Dropdown box, along with over 20 other different options!

Please report addon conflicts (especially with tooltips) and other errors in the comments on Curse/CurseForge.

For more information on breed IDs, see:

    Purple glitch appears to be fixed.

    I use to be able to see the rarity of pets during combat by just looking at their color by using this addon. But all pets are the same color for me now after I installed the 5.2 version. How can I fix that?

  • #103

    That's a hard bug to pin down exactly since only one other person has reported it before. I'm going to add an a new option that does the coloring in a new way. It would conflict with other pet addons more though, so I'm just making it an option and not on by default.

    Expect to see it in the next update (soonish).

    I recently learned of your BattlePet Addons and have Binds, BreedID, Counter, Collector, Count, and Tooltip.  I really enjoy these addons so far, however, find that the 'window' that is on my screen listing all of the pets in a given area, is quite annoying, and 'clutters' the screen more than I am comfortable with.  Regrettably, I am not sure what part, or which ones of these addons is putting that info there and how to clear that from my screen.  The info in the chat window is find.  Can you please offer any insight into this?

    Had this same issue. Press shift + p to bring up your pet journal. Botton right corner there should be a tickbox that says "Track pets". Just untick that and it should work.

  • #106

    its counts i had that problem too if you look on your map you will see in the top right hand corner the battle pet icon , hover of dlick on it ofr list of actions , you can turn it off , turn off all but missing or all but maxed or something to that effect.

  • #100

    I actually only am the author of Battle Pet BreedID and Battle Pet Binds. However, I know the author of Count though and use it myself, so it is none of those three mods.

    Sounds like it is either Counter or Collector, but the functionality you are describing is also something that PetTracker does, so you may want to look into that as a replacement for whatever is causing the problem.

    I do understand the confusion though - we did all prefix our addon titles with "Battle Pet".

    I think all of the 5.2 data is perfect right now except maybe the breeds on the Pandas/Carp and potentially the new raid pets (since nobody has them yet).

    anyway you could incorp pet gender into the tooltip , I prefere H/H H/B style , but I have to constanly switch back to the number system to see the pets gender. Thanks in advance.

  • #101

    Not sure how to say this, but the number system doesn't actually tell you gender either in-game. Strangely, there is NO method that I know of in-game that will allow you to find pet gender. The only way is to log out and look at your armory API's profile or use a website like (which uses the armory API).

    It is something I have repeatedly asked the developers to fix/change, so if you want it as a feature then help me make some noise on Twitter @mumper or @ghostcrawler!

  • #95

    Well, there a big problem cause I cannot see the pet rarity with this addon enabled...

  • #96

    I just uploaded a new version with a lot of different changes... let me know if it helps.

    If not, I think I know another way to fix your issue (still haven't been able to replicate it though).

  • #93

    First I just wanted to thank you for this addon. I'm fairly new to pet battles, and this addon is definitely a big help for me already. 

    I am encountering one issue I don't understand. On occasion, I will encounter a pet that doesn't have a breed ID listed; the tooltip merely states the name of the pet and then (???). A few pets that I have tamed also display their breed ID as (???). 

    Here is a picture showing what is happening:

    I'm terribly sorry if this is something you're already aware of/have already addressed elsewhere.

  • #94

    We have to obtain the breed by calculating it, based on stats - we can't just ask the game what breed the pet is, and then display it (for some reason).  Unfortunately, with some level 1 pets, it's impossible to determine what the correct breed is, due to numbers being rounded off.  In that case, we just display the ??? that you see.

    To get the correct breed, you can level the pet once or twice, and it should then have enough data to calculate correctly.  You can also use a website like, which can obtain the correct breed without calculations.

    Going to summarize a bit to get points in a single posting.  Pls excuse length.

     Issue #1 – Pet Journal Scrolling Frame

    • Scrolling frame text remains colorized based on rarity whenever Battle Pet BreedID is loaded.
    • The Pet Journal’s Pet tooltip header does change between rarity colorized or white based on settings in Battle Pet BreedID.
    • Scrolling frame text does NOT change between rarity colorized or yellow based on settings in Battle Pet BreedID.

     Issue #2 – Pet Battle UI Primary pets’ (mine and the engaged pet) Header are not colorized based on rarity

    • Both primary pet headers are default yellow.
    • Both primary pet tooltip headers are default yellow.
    • When Battle Pet BreedID was first installed, the engaged pet’s header was colorized based on rarity after the appropriate setting’s box was “checked”.  When I switched to another toon is when the problems were noted.
    • As a work around to knowing the rarity of the first engaged pet in a battle, you can “uncheck” “On in-battle tooltips” and “check” “In battle (on primary pets)”.  With this you can see the breed ID in the pet header and on mouseover the tooltip header will spell out the rarity of the pet.  (Would still be much much quicker to have the pet headers colorized when you start the battle.)

     The latest round of troubleshooting is summarized below;


    1. Have your Pet Journal open and do /run PetJournalListScrollFrameButton1Name:SetTextColor(1,1,1,1) Do /reload before testing #2


    2. Have your Pet Journal open and do /run PetJournalListScrollFrameButton1Name:SetVertexColor(1,1,1,1) Do /reload before testing #3


    3. Have your Pet Journal open and do /run PetJournalListScrollFrameButton1Name:SetText("\124cffffffff" .. PetJournalListScrollFrameButton1Name:GetText() .. "\124r")


     EDIT1 - Corrected 2nd and 3rd part of issue 1 to reflect what happens.
