About Cancel Pet Fight

Prompts about canceling the current pet battle/duel if no rare pet is found on the opposing team. Useful when trying to catch only rare (blue) pets.

There are no settings. Simply start a pet battle. If there are no rare pets in the opposing team, there will be a prompt asking you to continue or cancel the fight. Simply pressing "Escape" on your keyboard, or "Cancel" in the dialogue menu will cancel the pet battle.

Unfortunately the "Cancel" function requires a hardware event and can't be automatically fired.


  • /cpf chat - toggles printing the current opposing team to chat
  • /cpf popup - toggles between the old mode (displaying a pop-up) or the new overlay mode (new overlay mode is by default)
  • /cpf mark - toggle the raid marking option
  • Shift+Clicking the Forfeit button on the PetBattle UI will immediately cancel the battle without any confirmation!

    The problem with implementing such a feature is that the addon will grow from it's simplistic under-100-lines code to a huge "mammoth" of code, because I will most likely need to implement extra libraries of code just for that feature.

    Also, you will need a way to define what an upgrade is. Do you consider an upgrade if you find a pet with higher speed than yours? higher hp? higher attack power?

  • #23

    That's an idea I had for a while but couldn't figure out a simple implementation. If you've been in a PvP battle, you may have noticed that you don't get the prompt there, because the game clearly defines when it's a pvp battle. The game unfortunately doesn't specify when it's a tamer, but the name idea is interesting and I'll think about it.

    Not sure if it's another mod that I use, or if it's the new default [edit: it's PetTracker, I think], but each time I battle a pet that I don't have, (or if the rarity is better than mine), it puts an exclamation on that battle pet's portrait, and a tooltip (annoyimngly, that I can't fighure out how to turn off) pops up under the enemy team.

    Another thing that came to mind was the Master Pet Battlers, the addon goes off when their pets are loaded, since they are often Uncommon. Would there be a way for the addon to know either the pet or trainers' names, so that it wouldn't trigger when fighting them?

    I like the Addon very much, but I don´t need the Info about the quality of the pet at the chat. How can I stop this?

  • #18

    I will soon add an option for this.

    EDIT: Done. Use /cpf chat to turn it on/off. Defaults to on.

  • #15

    hello again,

    at start of every battle is printed to chat info: Pets in the opposing team: pet names colored by their quality, its nice but can you please add print also my pets compare to oppoenets, so i will immedietly show that i have for example pet2  just in white but there is in green quality.



  • #16

    Please use Pet Theory for this.

  • #12

    hi there,

    nice tiny addon thank you Smile


    any possibility add option "always cancel fight if no rare" and "cancel if rare is already collected"?





  • #13

    No on the 1st part, as the game needs a hardware input (a key pressed) to forfeit the pet battle, can't be done automatically, I'm afraid.

    I have to think about the 2nd one, but all I could do is prompt the cancelation.

  • #9

    Excellent addon, I translate (french) this addon for my pleasure. If you need that translation (nothing in Project Site).

    Missing (for next version?) : display the quality color to onlined?

  • #11

    Not sure what you mean by "onlined"?

    I don't have Localization plans yet, it would add a lot of libraries and extra code and the whole code of the addon is < 30 lines right now.

    Localization would make it more than 100 lines... It's not set in stone, you never known when I'm getting around to do that :)

    I love this addon. But found a problem was fighing 2 pets and it poped saying no rare but when the fight ended it said the second pet was a rare.

  • #10

    That can't happen - are you using multiple battlepets addons?

    Any screenshot/error log from it?

  • #6

    Just wondering if in a future release if there is anyway to depict which pet is rare. I do greatly enjoy this addon just a suggestion.
