1. Where to go first

Last updated 2020-10-11

So you decided to take your Elekk Plushie on an adventure and do the achievement An Awfully Big Adventure.
Good choice! It will award you a trusty companion: Trunks.

But first, you have to go through a total of 44 different trainers, with your Elekk Plushie included in the team. The Plushie is just a cute addition but when it comes to fighting it is mostly... harmless. None of it's spells give any advantage in a pet battle whatsoever, meaning you have to beat all those trainers with only two active pets. The good part however is that you don't have to swap the Elekk Plushie in at any time during the fights. It can even die, if you still win the fight it will count towards the achievement!

In this section I will provide you with all the resources you need to complete this task.

1. Where to go first



Of course you can do the trainers in any order you like. There are a few things I want to recommend though:

  • Start with the Celestial Tournament.
  • It takes three weeks to go through all three sets of trainers, so you might want to get the first week done up front.
  • Do the Darkmoon Faire fights as soon as you spot it being active.
  • The trainers in Kalimdor, Eastern Kingdoms, Outland and Northrend are wide apart from each other.
  • There is no specific order that makes travel times shorter, so visit them at your own pace.
  • Pandaria hosts the biggest group of trainers, here I would recommend this route:




With all that being said, I hope you have a fun and easy time doing this achievement!
Xu-Fu can scan this section for the most suitable strategies according to your preferences and show the required pets.
Depending on the amount of fights in the section, this can take up to a minute to process.

Aki the Chosen was moved into Mogu'shan Palace (84.04, 28.58 in Vale of Eternal Blossoms) in the current time. No need to go back in time to talk to him. (therefore I did that fight last, after Thundering Spirit, from this posted order) (edited)

Can you level the elekk on those bosses that allow a level pet, or does it have to be 25 to get the achieve?

According to some of the Wowhead comments, you should be able to use an Elekk that's not level 25 yet. One person suggested even trying to finish up the leveling the Elekk to 25 achv at the same time. I also inferred that from the comment at the top of this article where it said your Elekk could even die in the line up and it would still count towards this achv.

"The good part however is that you don't have to swap the Elekk Plushie in at any time during the fights. It can even die, if you still win the fight it will count towards the achievement!"

However, if you're leveling the Elekk, you'd need to swap it in, start with it, or have it be the last pet standing in order for it to get the XP needed to level it up....good luck!! ^_^

I can confirm you can level and Elekk while completing this achievement, for I leveled mine to 25 using the Warlords of Draenor battles before doing the other ones and wave given credit for it.

You can extract every single fight on the strategy table, there is a button for it.
A mass export is currently possible only for Family Familiar and Wailing Critters (click on the red skull).

Mhhh.... It would be possible to add it to all sections, but it's a bit of effort and I believe it could be a bit confusing because it's always just the #1 alternative, which is not always the one people would want to have.
My plan is a different one, which will be something I can only finalize somewhen this year. I'm working on a user system so you can favourite the strategies you like, and then have an "export all rematch strings" for your favourite strategies. That should do the trick!

You're welcome and for the largest part no, no specific breed is required. If so, it is displayed in a comment directly below the pets.
I will make this more visible in a future update :-)

This guide is fantastic and very nicely laid out. I ran into a slight problem. When doing the Celestial tournament I ended up needing 2 teroclaw because I did Taran Zhu first and the strategy requires the teroclaw to die, but then the Chen strategy requires that same pet. I might have missed the note that indicated that I needed 2. Since no one else has made a similar comment I'm sure I just missed it, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.
EDIT
OK So the achievement credit occurs even if you don't beat each trainer in one attempt. You don't need to win the celestial tournament to get credit so you can leave the tournament, heal your pets re-enter the tournament and defeat a different trainer.

Is the guide based off having all these pets as rare?

Hey Jasperius! Yes indeed, the pets need to be level 25 and rare.

Oh my gosh, this has been the most helpful guide ever! Thank you SO much for putting it together! The primary strat worked pretty much every time (I think I only did #2 twice). Now if only the Celestial Tournament wasn't such a pain to wait for...
