About Rematch

Rematch is a pet journal alternative to help manage battle pet teams and pets.

Its primary purpose is to store and recall battle pet teams for targets. For instance:

- When you target Aki the Chosen, bring up the Rematch window and hit Save, you can save in her name the pets you have out.
- When you return to Aki another day, you can target her, bring up the window and it will offer you those saved pets to load.

Note: Some parts of the addon description below have been udpated for the 3.2 update. They're worth a read if you want more details. Especially regarding leveling pets/queue/preferences and future plans.

How to Use

You can summon the Rematch window several ways:

  • Set a key binding from options.
  • /rematch command.
  • The Rematch button at the bottom of the pet journal.
  • 'Use Minimap Button' in options will create a minimap button.
  • From its LDB button if you use a Broker infobar addon.
  • Have 'Auto Show' checked in options and target something for which you have a saved team that's not already loaded.

Saving a Team

As mentioned at the top, this addon's primary purpose is to save for targets. Target an NPC, click Save, and you will be prompted to save in their name.

If you choose to keep the target's name for the team, then you'll be offered that team to load when you return to it another day. Within options you can choose to make Rematch automatically pop up when you return to that target, or you can make the team load immediately without messing around with the addon at all.

When a team is saved with an NPC targeted, or when saving over an existing team that was initially created at the target, the team's name will be white and it will react only to that specific instance of the NPC.

If you manually name a team named after an NPC without it targeted, or you got the team from elsewhere without targeting information saved, its name will be gold and it will react to any copies of that NPC you run across in the world.

You're also free to save without regard for target. Name your team anything you want and you can return to the teams tab later to load it back from the Teams tab.


When teams are saved, they're stored in the Teams tab.

  • To load a team manually, double click it.
  • You can create up to 15 additional tabs in addition to the default General team tab.
  • When a team is saved, it will go to the current tab. You can change the current tab while saving at the bottom of the save dialog.
  • All team names are unique, even across tabs. If you have "Aki the Chosen" in a tab named "Dailies", and you save "Aki the Chosen" in General, it will move that team to General and save it there. (But don't worry, if the teams are sufficiently different, it will ask for confirmation first).
  • Right-click a tab to change its name or icon, delete it (or re-order tabs if you've created more than one).
  • When a tab is deleted, all teams within the tab are moved to the General tab.
  • You can right-click a team to do various things as well, such as renaming, deleting or sharing it.
  • You can bind a key to open the Teams tab directly.
  • Searches in the team searchbox will look for matches in team names, team notes and any pet names.


The Pets tab contains a pet browser and a leveling queue.

Just about anyplace you see a pet, you can double-click it to summon the pet, or dismiss it if it was already out.

The "tooltip" for pets is a pet card with stats:

  • Hold Alt to flip the card over for more about your pet.
  • Click the pet to lock the card in place so you can mouseover abilities.
  • When the card is locked it has a wooden frame around it. You can unlock it several ways: clicking one of the little screws in a corner, clicking the pet again from where you locked it, hitting ESCape or any other major interaction with the addon.
  • You can shift+click pets and abilities to chat.

Some advantages the built-in pet browser has over the default pet journal:

  • You can search the names of abilities or text within abilities.
  • You can search for level and stat ranges.
  • In addition to filtering pets by type, you can filter by 'Strong vs': if you filter Strong vs Dragonkin, it will list all pets with Magic attacks.
  • You can also filter to pets that are Tough vs a type of attack: filtering Tough vs Elemental will list all critters.
  • A 'Type Bar' to filter by the various types without going through the dropdown menus.
  • A counter at the bottom of the browser tells you how many pets are listed: search level=25 and you'll see how many level 25 pets you own.

To clear filters, you can click the little X button in the search box or the type bar, or you can click the X along the bottom when filters are applied. You can also click 'Reset All' within the filters menu.


In the search bar of the pet browser, you can not only search for names of pets and their source, but you can also search for:

  • Names of abilities ("Call Lightning")
  • Text within abilities ("Bleed")
  • Level ranges ("level=25" or "level>10" or "level=8-13")
  • Stat ranges ("health>700" or "speed=250-350" or "power>=276")


  • Searches are not case sensitive. "Bleed" will work just as well as "bleed" or "BLEED".
  • You can hit "Fill" on the leveling queue to add one of each species from your search results to the leveling queue.
  • When you look at the pet card, abilities that contain the search text will be marked with a gold ring.
  • You can also search levels, stats and text simultaneously:
    "bleed health>700 level<25" : Pets with Bleed in text that have over 700hp and are under 25.
    "level<25 bleed health>700" : Same thing. The order of search isn't important.
    "health>700 <25 bleed" : Same again. If a stat doesn't appear with a < > or =, it assumes level.

Leveling Pets

Thanks to suggestions from Behub, Aloek and others, Rematch has a robust system to make leveling pets easy.

In the Pets tab there is a leveling slot with a shiny gold border. You can drag a pet there to mark it as your leveling pet. (You can also right-click a pet elsewhere like in the journal and choose 'Start Leveling')

  • Any teams saved with pets from the leveling pet will reserve those pets' slots for future leveling pets.
  • When you see a shiny gold border around a pet anywhere in Rematch, it means that is a leveling pet.

So if you save teams for various tamers with a leveling pet, when you return to those tamers later with a different leveling pet, it will load that new leveling pet in their saved places.

The Leveling Queue

In addition to the gold-bordered leveling slot, there is a leveling queue beneath the slot where you can store any number of pets you intend to level.

  • The top-most pet in the queue will always be the same pet that's in leveling slot. Always.
  • You can double-click any pet in the queue to move it up to the leveling slot, making it your active leveling pet.
  • You can also re-order pets in the queue by dragging them around or by right-clicking a pet and using the move options.
  • As soon as a leveling pet reaches 25 (grats!) it will leave the queue. If there are any leveling pets waiting, it will swap the top-most pet into the leveling slot.
  • If a team is saved with more than one leveling pet, the top-most pets will be loaded for those slots.

From the gear button to the right of the leveling slot you can:

  • Sort the queue by level: Ascending (level 1 to 25), Median (closest to level 10.5), Descending (25 to 1) or Type (Humanoid then Dragonkin etc).
  • While the queue is sorted, all pets except the top-most pet are sorted. This allows sorting the queue and still keeping an active leveling pet at the top you're working on.
  • If Full Sort is enabled, then even the top pet is included in the sort and it can change as pets gain xp or get added to the queue.
  • You can also fill the queue from pets in the browser. For instance, search "21-24", filter for Rare and hit Fill Queue to add 21-24 rare pets to the leveling queue.
  • Empty the queue. It will ask for confirmation before clearing the queue.

Leveling Pet Preferences

The queue is also able to prefer some pets over others.

  • If a queued pet is one your character can't load (like a wrong-factioned Moonkin Hatchling), it will skip over that pet and prefer pets you can load.
  • In the queue menu you can check "Prefer Live Pets." This will make living pets load before any dead ones.
  • Pets that are not preferred will be darkened in the queue.
  • If preferred pets can't be found to fill all leveling slots, the top-most pets in the queue not already chosen will be used to fill the remaining slots.
  • You can globally disable preferences from checking 'No Preferences' in the queue menu.

You can also save teams with some leveling pet preferences that are active only while that team is loaded.

  • When saving a team with a leveling pet, a button in the lower left will allow you to expand the window to assign leveling pet preferences. These include:
    • Minimum Health: Any pets with at least this much maximum health will be preferred. (Injured pets will use their maximum health for consideration)
    • or any Magic & Mechanical: These two types can survive one hit. For opponents that would only get one swipe at your leveling pet, this option will allow all magic and mechanical pets to be preferred.
    • Maximum Level: Any pets above this level will be skipped, to save from lost xp. Note that the level can be a partial amount: 23.45 is level 23 and 45% towards the next level.
  • To change the leveling preferences of an existing team, right-click a team that contains a leveling pet and choose 'Leveling Preferences'.
  • Teams with a preference will have a leveling icon to the right of their name. Mouseover of this button will show the preferences in a tooltip. Clicking the button will summon a dialog to change preferences.

Sharing Teams

There are two ways to share battle pet teams when you right-click it in the Teams tab:

Send will send a team to someone online on your faction.

  • When a user receives a team that you Send, they'll receive a popup displaying the team with the option to save it. If they're in combat or they have another team waiting (or a similar dialog up) it will inform you that they're busy and you should try again later.
  • To send a team cross-realm, include their name, such as Gello-Hyjal.
  • In options you can choose to block incoming pets if you'd like.

Export will create a WeakAuras-like text string that you can copy to the clipboard.

  • You can paste the team anywhere else: in an email, on forums, in a text file, etc.
  • Any other Rematch user can use this string to Import the same team. The Import button is in the bottomright of the main window.

If you receive or import a team that includes pets you don't have, that's fine. They'll be greyed out and only the pets you have will attempt to load. You can keep the team as is for the day when you get the pet, or you can choose to save over it if you find a suitable substitute for the missing pet.

Note: and RealID are not totally supported yet. At present there's a test mode you can try if you'd like. If both you and your friend have the option enabled, it will attempt to send via the team via

Other Addons

A major goal with this addon was to make it behave well regardless of what other battle pet addons you're using.

In some cases, it even takes advantage of the awesome addons others have created. For instance:

  • If you have the addon Battle Pet Breed ID enabled, pets will display breed information. If you click a pet and mouseover its stats, you can see all possible breeds for the pet.
  • If you have the addon Pet Battle Teams enabled, there will be a button at the end of options to import your teams from PBT.
  • If you choose to continue using PBT alongside Rematch (many do!), make sure you lock your PBT teams or auto save in PBT is disabled. The default behavior of PBT is to change the pets in your currently-selected team to whatever is loaded.
  • If you have a Broker infobar addon, it will create a button on your bars to toggle Rematch.

Future Plans

My addon-writing time should be picking up again now that holidays are passing. The present plans for Rematch are listed below, loosely grouped into three priorities.

Short term:

  • Look for multiple sources for breed data.
  • Queue recovery in the event of a server mass petID reassignment.
  • Custom sorting of pets: by power, speed, favorites mixed with rest, reverse sort, etc.
  • Additional leveling pet preferences: vulnerable pet types, maybe resistant types.
  • Mass Export/Import of teams.
  • Somehow save for challenge posts (prompt to save after a successful battle with a non-wild pet?)
  • Allow the window to be resized horizontally the way it can be resized vertically now.

Mid term:

  • Allow re-ordering teams into an arbitrary order within a group.
  • Re-evaluate UI:
    • See about making the UI less "dense".
    • The small square buttons could afford to be wider.
    • An alternate view of current pets that stacks them vertically.
  • Pet Treat, Lesser Pet Treat and Safari Hat buttons in the collapsed view, with cooldown spinners on the treats to tell how much time is left on the buff.
  • Some alternate method of tagging pets. A "second" favorites at least.
  • A way to pick a new leveling pet while the window is collapsed.
  • A "favorite filters" system.

Long term:

  • Rework the pet card to get more information on the card, such as breeds owned.
  • Rematch journal companion: maybe throw in the towel and integrate Rematch into the journal.
  • Understudy pet slot on the pet card for loading an alternate pet if that pet is dead or injured.
  • Possibly some method of choosing alternate teams if the saved team has dead or injured pets.

- New team notes system:
 - When saving a team you can expand the save window with a button in the lower left and type or paste notes to save with the team.
 - To add or edit notes to an already existing team you can right-click the team and choose Set Notes.
 - When the currently-loaded team has a note there will be a notes button beside the name of the team.
  - Mouseover of this button will display the notes as a tooltip.
  - Clicking this button will lock the notes in place so they remain up.
  - You can mousewheel to scroll up/down the notes if they extend beyond the viewable area.
 - Teams with notes will have an icon beside their name in the team list. These notes can be viewed several ways:
  - When the mouse is over the notes icon in the team list.
  - When the mouse is over the title of the "team card"/tooltip, flipping the card to its back.
  - By holding the Alt key while looking at a team card to flip the card over.
 - Locked notes can be dismissed just like the locked pet card: the ESCape key or by clicking one of the "screws" in the corner of the wooden frame.
 - The search box on the team tab will also search for teams with the search text in their notes.
- The "direction" of popup dialogs reworked when the window is collapsed:

- When a dialog appears, all but the current pets area will darken slightly and become uninteractive to prevent weird interactions with dialogs.
- Mouseover of pet totals at bottom of the browser will display more totals: number of pets you own, number of pets you're missing, unique pets you own and level 25 pets.

    I'm not completely sure if this is a Rematch error or a Blizzard default UI one >.<

    The chance that this addon is in any way related to that error is extremely remote.

  • #434

    Request:  Would it be possible to indicate in your tooltips whether the pet belongs to a saved team and/or which saved team the pet belongs to?

  • #436

    This is a great idea.  Thanks for suggesting it!

    I'll probably put a button on the card to indicate the pet is a part of a team, and mouseover of the button will list the teams.

  • #433

    Request: I wonder if others agree, but I'd like to see the safari hat button next to the pvp queue button instead of the current 50% xp cookie.

    I already ate two cookies by misclick accidents.

  • #435

    The Find Battle button will probably be moving back to its spot between the bandage and pet tab.

    Are you able to add/remove pets to the queue from the journal now?

  • #438

    I think that functionality has been restored, yes. I'll pay special attention soon.

  • #431

    Can Rematch be made to recognize the different versions of Erris the Collector? the collector

    Each one fields a different set, but currently it seems the addon only notes her name and saves the team under that.

    Also, I asked this previously but I think it got lost in the shuffle, is there any way Rematch can save a camera angle and default to that when entering a pet battle?

    • When you save a new team with an npc targeted, the team is named in white and it will react only to that npcID.
    • When you save a new team without an npc targeted, the team is named in gold and it will react to anything that happens to have the exact name.

    If you have a team saved for Erris and the name of the team is white, load the team, delete it, and save it again naming it "Erris the Collector" (Case Sensitive) and it will react to any version of her.How teams are saved internally is going to change over the next few updates, and one of the earlier ones will allow removing the npcID associated with a team more easily.

    And I'm sorry but Rematch's scope is limited to pets and teams.  It really has no business dealing with the camera angle in battles.  It's a decent idea for an addon, hopefully someone makes it for you.  Also if you flip back to your previous post I wrote a script for the specific request you wanted.

    Hey - first of all - I love your addon. Great work! :D

    Unfortunately I also have some trouble with my Pet Journal Interface. I cannot add pets to the leveling queue anymore by right-clicking and "Start Leveling" or "Add to Leveling Queue". There are no blue arrows showing for me in the journal. My Rematch version is 3.3.5.

  • #426

    Thanks for mentioning you're also seeing it.  So far I'm unable to reproduce it.  In the meantime you can add/remove pets from the queue from the pet tab in Rematch.

    Can one of you affected by this do me a favor and disable your pet-journal-related addons, and see if you still can't add/remove from the queue?

    Also for anyone in general, especially those who use Rematch alongside the default journal, I'm very anxious to hear of any ideas to improve the experience of using Rematch without the journal.

  • #430

    Ok, I did some testing and the issues I was having appear to have been corrected with the newest version of Rematch.  My pet journal is still acting rather wonky (it resorted my pets after a pet battle and put the leveling pet in the wrong place on the list, but that is an issue that is not related to this add on... at least I don't see how it could be).  The interaction with Rematch, on the other hand, is now working the way it should.

    Oh, I already use the "larger window" and "larger list text" options... but I am extremely nearsighted and my vision has gotten a lot worse now that I am in my 50s.

    Quote from Maizing »

    I see you've already updated the add on since my last post, so I have just dowloaded the newest version and will report back if the issues are fixed.  Rematch itself has worked great through all of this (I have just had to use the mini map button to open it if I want to do anything with adding or removing pets from the leveling queue), but I am getting older and my vision is not the best, so I prefer to work on my teams through the larger interface on the default pet journal and that has not been interacting properly with any of my pet battle add ons.

    I'm not fully confident that update corrected the issue but it is possible. Let me know if it has.  It was the already-planned fix for the (supposedly rare) situation when the journal is loaded before it should be.  I didn't have time today to do any addon work but I will have lots of time this weekend.  I may rebuild how the journal interaction works.

    In the meantime, if you'd like, check in options for 'Larger window' and 'Larger list text'.  With that and the fully resizable window you can get a pretty large interface.

    One of the huge benefits to being a stand-alone addon is that it's free of all entanglement with the default UI and other addons.  Regardless what changes are made to the default UI or other addons, as long as the underlying API doesn't change, this one can truck along with minimal maintenance or interference.  I very much want to keep this addon stand-alone so it can continue to work through many more patches.  (For those who don't use the pet journal, and use a key binding or minimap button or /rematch macro or LDB button to open the addon--I'll gladly add more ways to open it!--they could be running on a version from before the patch and not noticed anything.)

    All that said, I'm in the planning stages of an optional module to integrate Rematch into the journal.  I'm very keen to keep this addon resilient and I have ideas on how to do that and still integrate it into the journal in a "stand-alone" capacity.

    Yes, I have tried disabling all other pet journal related addons (in my case Pet Journal Enhanced, which I hardly use anymore anyways due to your great addon) and Pet Tracker even before posting here. The error is still there, even after disabling both of the other addons...

    I now noticed that every now and then a blue level up arrow pops up in my pet journal - but it is not displayed at the correct pets (e.g. it should be at my level 23 Xu-Fu and instead is shown always at the same spot in the journal, no matter which pet is there, even when the page is filled only with level 25s)

    Level queue problem
