About WoWkemon
Are you ready to WOWKéMON?

WOWKéMON is a complete rewrite of the Blizzard Battle Pet frames.


  • Movable Unit Frames!
  • Themes!
  • Real Pokemon-style weather!
  • Spectate other pet battles!

Bring up the in-game menu (Interface, keybindings, logout, etc) to change the theme!

"WoWkemon" theme Controls:

  • Right click and drag to move each frame individually.
  • Mouse over pokeballs to see the stats/moves of any pet in battle!

"Emerald" theme Controls:

  • Right click and drag to move the frames.
  • Mouse over pokeballs to see the stats/moves of any pet in battle!
  • Hold shift while being prompted for an action and the pass button will appear!
  • Right click in the ability pane to go back to the action selection pane.

To spectate:

  1. Open up the friends pane.
  2. Click on the little pokeball next to the SoR button
  3. If any of your friends have WoWkemon and are on, you can click to spectate them. Otherwise, you can enter a custom user to connect to by clicking "Custom User."

Please post any bugs and feature requests!

    Still working on this? cause i downloaded it and it said out of date.

  • #110

    has this mod been abandoned?


  • #111

    Not really, it's just on the backburner. I'm gonna sit down and update it soon!

  • #108

    This is a great addon, though may I request something in the UI to show a pet's rarity (perhaps an icon of a  apricorn, pokeball, great ball, ultra ball, master ball for poor, common, uncommon, rare, legendary)?

  • #109

    The different colored stars correspond to the rarity of the pet, should be enabled in both the Emerald and Default themes.

  • #104
    White text on everything

    Since patch 5.3 all the text describing the moves is written white on white. Will a future patch fix this?

  • #113

    This is the issue that is preventing me from using this mod. Even now in patch 5.4.8.

  • #105

    I'll fix it as soon as I'm able.

  • #99
    VS screen

    I use ElvUI for my pet bars but I'd love a way to enable just the awesome VS screen. Any way to do this or plans to add this as an option?

  • #100

    Which VS screen? The one for the default theme or the Emerald theme?

  • #103

    I totally agree with him. The retro pet bars are great but damn that vs screen is too awesome. I'd love to have that plus ElvUI pet bars.

  • #102

    I'll consider it for another update, but we'll see -- I'm holding off on working on one because I hear we're getting spectator mode in 5.3, which mostly means I have to disable the one already present in WoWkemon.

  • #101

    The one for Emerald.

  • #94

    How exactly does the Spectate function work? I'm organizing a Pet Battle tournament and I'd love to record the finals.

  • #95

    There's instructions in the addon description, but I'm guessing you're wondering about the backend.

    Essentially, it just scans your friends' list and battlenet list for people who have the WoWkemon addon. What happens when you spectate someone is a little eye shows up on the top of their screen to show someone is spectating their battles. The spectate viewer (on the spectator side) is just a pokemon-style TV that shows what's going on in the battle (complete with models!) You can only connect to people on the same realm as you, though. Lemme know if you need more info.
