Confused On Hatching

This may be a question commonly asked, but if you're hatching, for example a imp with a dragon, and your pets the dragon would you get the imp, or its stats? I'm really confused. I've just started hatching and I need help.

Hatching is completely random. You stand a 50/50 chance of getting either pet, and the talents your new pet will have are a combination of its parents talents.

Thank you! That makes a lot of sense now.

I also think it should be mentioned pets sometimes have "hidden" talents.

Sometimes if a parent pet has a gene that it did not reveal it can be passed down to the new pet. (for example, if you have a pet that MIGHT give "Spell Defy" but it didn't give it when you trained it, there is still a teeny tiny chance it can be passed down to the new pet. Although this is rare I feel it is worth mentioning since it's happened to me a couple of times :P

It should be noted that some pets are more rare than others. It's not really always a 50/50 chance of getting the other pet. There are also hybrid pets when mixing school pets of the same level. Those give a small chance at creating a unique hybrid pet that is totally different than it's parents.
