Is Pet Combat in Mists of Pandaria a new Feature or just a Pokemon Knock-Off?

One of the many new features apart from wow monk, the new class in the World of Warcraft expansion pack, Mists of Pandaria is the pet battle system. This system takes what used to be simple, non-combat oriented pets and allows them to fight against wild pets or pets owned by other players. Perhaps the largest complaint that has been levied against this new feature seems to be a complete knockoff of Pokemon. So, the real question on everyone's mind is "Pet Feature or Pokemon knockoff?"

This is a completely valid question, as the similarities seem to be endless. The goal of the pet system in WoW is to catch different types of species across Azeroth which mirrors Pokemon's slogan: “gotta catch them all”. In addition, many of the pet types (water, fire, undead, etc.) are extremely similar to the types found in Pokemon. Many hardcore gamers that have written wow monk guide and Pandaria compares the pet battle system to the mechanics found in Pokemon games. So, the question pops up: is it a Pet Feature or Pokemon? Well, any sane person would tell you its both. By adding their specific "touch" to Pokemon, Blizzard has created their own experience.

In fact, many people don't necessarily see it as a bad addition to the Mists of Pandaria expansion, no matter what its "knockoff status" is. They argue that there is no real "copyright" on the Pokemon concept and that if someone wants to make a Pokemon MMO, they can, whether the actual Pokemon brand is present or not. To be honest, the popularity of the feature isn't exactly up for debate anymore, since almost as soon as the new feature hit the Mists of Pandaria beta servers, it quickly became the "cool" new thing to check out.

In addition, the Pandaria Guide sprung up quickly to walk people through how to level their pets and fight them efficiently against other battle types. The battle information presented in the guide covers basic strategies that players should be aware of. Such examples, if viewed closely correlate with Pokemon such as opposing elements for example. The basic premise of this concept is to use the opposing element against your opponent. Of course, Blizzard did not completely knockoff Pokemon entirely, a franchise which became popular in the late 90's. Adding a bit of Blizzard's unique touches to the pet battle system, it's safe to say the pet battle system is unique in Blizzard's own right.
