Hello, this is Community Moderator Bean with my Wizard101 Pet Training Guide. This method works with any pet and will clean 95% of the pet’s Talent pool. It rarely results in fails when done step by step.
- Your school-Dealer
- Your school-Giver
- Mighty Jewel in the socket
Make sure the pet you choose to hatch with is at max sap/numbers or is
close to max sap/numbers.
*SAP is Strength, Agility, and Power*
Max numbers are 255, 250, 260, 260, 250. Max numbers are important, they make the difference between a +9 and +10 damage Dealer Talent.
Hatch but ONLY take the initial hatch to adult.
Hatch again with the same or a similar pet.
Hatching with the same kiosk pet is optimal so that the talent pools do not mix. Hatching with different pets can result in unwanted talents, or “fails”.
Side note, the first couple hatches will have fail/ unwanted talents. Do not discard this pet, by re-hatching and only taking the pet to adult, you’ll clean the pet’s gene pool.
Repeat steps four and five until you have a pet with two of the five talents you want. Make sure the pet’s SAP is close to maximum.
Keep this one as a BASE pet, do not ever train this past adult. It will take a couple of hatches to make a successful base pet.
Depending on what pet you’re choosing to make, do not get discouraged if the first couple hatches fail. This is why re-hatching at adult is recommended. To make sure you don’t waste any pet snacks and so the fewest undesired talents get transferred onto the pet.
Hatch your base pet one last time. Then, take the new egg and train it to Mega.
If the pet you’re taking to Mega fails; trash it and use your base pet to hatch another pet to take to mega.
You’ll know when you have your final base pet when the following applies:
- The pet’s talents pools are similar or completely the same.
- The pet’s stat number are the same or similar.
- The past three to five hatches have succeeded.
- The previous hatches have consistently manifested between two and five or the desired talents.
When this list applies to your base bet, you’ll be ready to take the next hatch to Mega.
When you use the Kiosk, try to hatch with the same pet, mixing pools can result in fails. But, be mindful, if you cannot find the same pet it is for one of the following reasons:
1. It’s on a timer, once a pet is hatched with, there is a one hour cool-down timer until it can be hatched with again.
2.The pet has spent the maximum amount of time in the Kiosk, which is two weeks. Once a pet reaches two weeks it is removed from the Kiosk.
3. The Kiosk pets has reached its limit of 10 hatches for those 14 days. Once a pet reaches ten hatches, it can’t hatch again until it’s removed and then placed back in the Kiosk.
It should be noted the price of hatching is vastly different between the Hatchery and the Kiosk.
On average Hatches done in the Hatchery cost anywhere from 22k to 47k gold.
Meanwhile, Hatches done at the Kiosk cost anywhere from 75k to 103k gold.
Congratulations on your new pet! A Wizard’s pet is their greatest ally; for your new companion to reach their fullest potential, you’ll need to train them. To raise your pet’s level, you’ll need to play one of the six minigames in the Pet Pavilion located off the Commons.
While you train your pet, you will notice the amount of energy for each minigame increases as they level up. The energy cost goes up two points for every level after Baby, with Teen costing four energy, an Adult needs eight, and so on. The oldest pets are Ultra, which costs fourteen energy per game.
With the arrival of Minigame Mastery, you can skip minigames. After you’ve won a minigame twenty-five times, you will receive mastery. Meaning, you can pay the energy but miss the game. You will not receive any experience for skipping, but you will be able to feed your pet a snack right away, making training pets much quicker.
I would recommend the Dance Game, but you are welcome to choose whatever game you prefer. Skipping the game costs the same amount of energy it would take to play the game. You’ll still be able to play the minigame if you choose to.
Maxing out Talents
How do I make my pet’s talents more powerful?
Your pet’s manifested talents improve based upon the stats associated with them. For example, you have a pet with damage talents, but you didn’t train the stats that correspond (Strength, Will, and Power). They will not improve until you train those stats, which can happen by playing minigames or feeding your pet snacks. If you are unsure of which stat effects what talents you can hover your cursor over the talent and it will tell you.
My pet leveled up outside the Pet Pavilion. How?
With the arrival of 2020 Spring Update, pets now receive a few experience points for every main storyline quest you complete with them equipped. It is theoretically possible to train a pet to Mega this way, but it will take a very long time.
Mega Snacks 101
Mega snacks are a snack that you can receive by farming gauntlets, dungeons, and gardening. These snacks give at least +25 points each, and they are “No Auction” meaning you cannot sell them in the Bazaar.
Gardening Couch Potatoes and Evil Magma Peas are the best way of obtaining mega-snacks.
Couch Potatoes are a Rank 3 plant that drop many different types of items that you can stock up on for gold. For example the snacks that give +10 expeirence points, Empowers, and lots of sellable Treasure Cards. These plants can also drop their own “likes” which boosts their growth rate. These drops include Tropical Garden Gnomes, Litter, and the Sandwich Station. All of which can all be purchased at the Bazaar in Olde Town. The Mega Snacks that Couch Potatoes drop, are listed below:
Golden Wheat Bread: +40 points each
Captain Canteloupe: +45 points each
Fancy Yogurt: +50 points each
Evil Magma Peas are a Rank 4 plant that drop lots items that you can stock up on for gold as well, such as sellable Treasure Cards like Cleanse Charm, Earthquake, etc. They also drop reagents that are very useful for crafting (black pearl, sandstone, sunstone, etc…). These plants can also drop their own “likes” which boosts their growth rate. These drops include Tropical Garden Gnomes, Djembe Drums, and the Egg Basket, all of them be purchased at the Bazaar in Olde Town. The five Mega Snacks this plants drops are listed below:
Golden Wheat Bread: +40 points each
Cherry Tomato: +40 points each
Mystic Dragon Fruit: +45 points each
Captain Canteloupe: +45 points each

Dropped Mega Snacks
The Starburst Spiders from Mirror Lake drop the Pixie Stix snack. These snacks only do +30 each, and only two are obtainable per run.
Winterbane Hall is a housing gauntlet that drops 6 different mega snacks. These snacks on give +25 each; but, many more drop per run. You don’t need a membership to do this gauntlet, but you’ll likely need a few friends to help you.
Crafted Mega Snacks
There are the only four craftable Mega Snacks currently. Each recipe requires 2,000 gold, five specific treasure cards, 4-5 Pristine Vials, and one fish. Which may require you to spend some time fishing in the Spiral to collect all the ingredients.
Mystic Dragon Fruit can be found in Dragonspyre and is sold by Darina BloodFlame.
The Captain Canteloupe recipe is sold in Celestia by Clarence Cavendish.
The recipe for the Cherry Tomato is sold by Jackie WhisperFlame in Wizard City.
Finally the recipe for Golden Wheat Bread can be found Krokotopia, and is sold by Shazz’am.
There are many ways to get jewels for your pet’s socket. Whether through farming or crafting, some can even by purchased through gift cards. Always research your jewel before taking your pet to Ultra. Some jewels do not need your pet to be Ultra.
Farming and Crafting
Raising your pet to Ultra gives you a chance to receive one Tier 1 Selfish Talent Jewel like Mighty. These Selfish Talent Jewels give +65 to their respective stats. So, they can raise damage, resist, crit, pierce, etc. talents by a few points. The only other way to get in these Selfish Talent Jewels is to craft them or train them as a Talent on your pet.
“Kroger Jewels” are cards sold at Kroger, Vons, Safeway, etc. for USD 20. These giftcards offer a double-talent Jewel, which cycles each month. These cards are redeemable in later months, for different Jewels. For example, if you bought your card in September, you can redeem it in July if you want the July Jewel instead. Not only do you get a Double Talent, Unshatterable pet Jewel, but also an Energy Elixir and a choice of 10,000 crowns or two-month membership. You can sometimes receive a Kroger Jewel through the seasonal Scroll of Fortune.
common pets 101
Pets that are usually referred to as “Double Triple”, “Ward pets”, “Jade pets”, etc. are known as that because of their common use. These are the staple pets that you’ll always find in the Kiosk.
A “Triple Double” is a pet with two universal resistance and three damage talents for your school. The name states what talents the pet has. Double Triple pets manifest; Pain-Giver, Spell-Proof, Spell-Defy, and a matching Dealer and Giver. Example: Death-Dealer and Death-Giver. These two talents are school interchangeable. If you’re working on a Double Triple for a specific school, insert the school name before Dealer or Giver.
Jade Pets & May-casts
“Jade Pets” or “May-casts” are made to compliment a Jade Wizard, a healer tank in Jade Gear. These pets usually have two universal resistance Talents with a combination of May-Cast or healing talents.
“Ward Pets” have two universal resistance talents and three ward talents, these pets are mainly for PvP. Wards talents grant a +15 resistance to a specific school, like Balance Ward. These pets appear in PvP because this type of pet gives +30 resistance to three schools. You can change the school of your desired ward by changing the school typed before -Ward. Example: Spell-Defy, Spell-Proof, Ice-Ward, Fire-Ward, and Myth-Ward.
