About Pokemon Trainer: The Pet Battle Mod

Pokemon Trainer: The Pet Battle Mod

Pokemon Trainer (PT) was the very first pet battle related addon for World of Warcraft on Curse and is your individual combat helper when it comes to pet battles. It is completely overhauled and rewritten. Choose between the next-generation or the old combat display and start duelling until your keyboard catchs fire.

  • Main features (during pet battles)
    • Choose between two combat displays
    • Displays pets rarity, level difficulties, speed indicators
    • Displays both your and enemys abilities with cooldowns, bonuses and weaknesses
    • Highlights abilities whenever they do more damage for any reason - never again miss a chance to blast your enemy
    • Scans enemy abilities during PVP battles and marks them with a green checkmark if scanning was successful
    • Displays pets breed IDs as text and/or icon
  • Additional, optional features
    • Adds relevant info about your team in the tooltip when hovering or targeting battle pets
    • Displays a small window on your UI with two buttons:
      • Revive Pets (Spell) with current cooldown
      • Pet Bandages (Item) with current amount in bags
    • Colors known and unknown pets in the auction house
  • Type /pt for setting up PT!

Requests, Bug Reports and Localization

  • Please use the Ticket System on CurseForge to report bugs, unintended behaviour, request for features, etc. I won't handle any kind of requests via comments on Curse anymore. Thanks.
  • I refuse to translate my addons with translators like Google since it feels wrong. If you can provide localized strings, please use the CurseForge localization tool.

Thanks to

Detritis who tested almost every new v1 alpha package, reported bugs and suggested new ideas for the mod. Without you, Mate, PT wouldn't be as smart as it is now.

Nullberri from PetJournal Enhanced and other great pet battle mods. Thanks for sharing your pet breed infos as a library when I asked for it. Please download Nullberris mods to support him.

    I am getting this error when logging in:


    Message: Interface\AddOns\PokemonTrainer\Libs\iLib\iLib.lua:161: attempt to call field 'GetNumRaidMembers' (a nil value)

    Also i dont know if you are aware but filtering "Zone only" no longer shows the pets you do not have in the zone

  • #97

    I know. I broke the iLib by accident. Since yesterday PokemonTrainer is packaged with the fixed version of iLib again, so please simply update it via Curse Client. Thanks :)

    As far as I know, PT doesn't have anything to do with pet filtering, especially not showing any missing pets in zones. If you mean the "Already caught" / "Not caught" feature... yes, we disabled that functionality because Blizzard added it with Patch 5.1

    Hi guys!
    Working on bug reports would be much easier if you would use the CurseForge Ticket System instead of posting comments. I recently opened the Ticket System for Pokemon Trainer. :)

    Do not use Alpha-Version, as the Curse-Packager doesn't process externals correct when automaticly building alphas. I haven't got response from curse about that issue. Just only use Betas (select prefered Release-Type: Beta in Curse-Client) and you always should get working versions.

  • #90

    Just found that the "PokemonTrainer\Libs\iLib\Libs"-subfolder is missing.

    I have just copied it from the -> Now its working like a charm! :)

  • #93

    You could install the iLib separately to avoid this kind of errors when using alpha packages of PT. :)

    I am getting this error when I logged on, after updating it through curse client

    I am getting the same error as XManii.
    This can be easily prevented by adding a rarity test integrity at line 298

    if( not OwnedPets[name] or OwnedPets[name] < rarity ) then
            OwnedPets[name] = rarity;


    if rarity then
                if( not OwnedPets[name] or OwnedPets[name] < rarity ) then
                    OwnedPets[name] = rarity;

    This will no longer appear in the next beta, as the already-catched tooltip-line has been removed. (provided by blizzard now)

  • #86

    Thanks for update! I can't imaging pet battling without this addon anymore!

  • #85

    "Possible" is the new maintainer of PokemonTrainer since I really have no time for that. He works on the mod and already brought us minor patches to get PT working again. Please let him some time for improving the code and getting you the powers of PT back.

    Hope you'll continue enjoy PT and its features, and again, much thanks to Possible for maintaining the addon. :)

  • #82

    After being spammed with LUA errors all the time, having a mod that only works when it feels like working (not always showing the opponents window, showing 3 pets to battle eventhough there is only 1 or 2, etc etc) I'm also thinking about deleting this addon.  Anyone know of any addon that does the same?

    I consider to deinstall this addon completely, as the author stated he is not playing any more, so that's the explanation for the bunch of errors occuring not only after a major WoW patch. Would be great if someone could take over development who has more possibilities to test the addon before releasing new versions...

    Quick Fix: (Tooltip without error & lag)
