Patch 7.3 might not be as far away as many people think, so let’s check out the 43 new battle pets coming in Patch 7.3

New Achievement Pet Rewards
Family Fighter is similar to Family Familiar — Pet Battlers will need to defeat Argus pet NPCs with teams comprised of one pet family. The achievement rewards the new pet, Felclaw Marsuul.
Players will have to use each pet type to defeat a total of 18 new pet NPCs. These encounters are located across Argus. And according to developer Jeremy Feasel on Twitter, unlike the trainers from Family Familiar, the Family Fighter NPCs will be spawned indefinitely and can be battled even if their World Quest isn’t active.
Raiding with Leashes V: Cuteaclysm is the latest pet collection achievement coming in Patch 7.3. In this achievement, players will collect pets from bosses in Bastion of Twilight, Blackwing Descent, Throne of the Four Winds, Firelands, and Dragon Soul.
Collectors will find 15 of these pets inside Cataclysm raids, and the final pet, Amalgam of Destruction, is the reward for completing the achievement.
