Pet Hatching is NOT random

One thing that I have noticed, is that if a pet has a group of three or four talents
all together, they often are transferred to the offspring in that same order.
So, the entire group will transfer to the new pet, and you can be sure of what you have.

So when I am hatching, and two of the talents that I want are in a group of three or
four, I will use that pet, along with a different pet that has a grouping. If you can
find patterns in pets like this, it can often accelerate the process of getting what you
want in the final pet.

I also find it's easier to get someone to hatch with you, if you have a pet they want.
So, if you want someone with Myth Talents to hatch with you, start with a pet that
most Myth want, etc.

I have hatched hundreds, I know more than 600 pets, and I would say that
75 percent or more are discarded. Of that 25 percent, they are re-hatched and
then discarded. I have six pets that are close to what I want, two being almost perfect.

The problem is, the game changes, and the talents are always in flux, so now I
am hatching again, trying to get a better pet. It can be a never ending process,
once you get into it, that's why you need a solid set of gardens for mega snacks.

One thing that most do, is build as many megs snacks that you can, and them bring
up your pets in the Test realm. Then you know exactly which pets you want to
bring up in the regular game. The rest that turned out with Talents you don't want,
can be discarded and you don't waste Mega's on them.
Talents always appear in the same order. It's well documented by the pet genome project on fan sites. Like Spell Proof always appears above Spritely and Spell Defy will always be below those and Fairy Friend aways below all of them. All talents appear in the same places in referrence to each other on the list.

seethe42,

Thanks, never looked at the Pet project, but that's good data to know.
