      Introducing Micky & The Ultimate Derby pet

      Back in 2018 I posted my progress on creating a new breed of Derby pet - I called it my Derby 4.0 Superpet - incorporating a "new" pet ability in the game - Ultra Hurry. When I posted in November I had created some amazing pets indeed - first Cuddles, then Waffles, Bubbles, Chuckles, Chompers, Sparkles, and finally Snuggles. Thing is, while each was a form of "perfect", it was only what manifested that was great - behind the scenes, if you will, were less than great abilities like Bananas! as well as a few dreaded ACTIVE talents in the gene pool. Ack! Plus, the base stats were good enough, but not...well...perfect. So the project proceeded with the goal of replacing all garbage talents and abilities with only the best of the best and bringing the base stats to true perfection.

      I'm glad to say I finally have achieved what I consider to be the ULTIMATE Derby pet - what I will call my 4.9 Superpet.

      Introducing....
      MICKY


      Total Cost to cheer - 10 (4/2/2/2)

      On the surface Micky doesn't look much different than the earlier versions of my 4.0 pet, but the beauty of my 4.9 pets is that the gene pools are flawless and the base stats are a perfect 255 / 250 / 260 / 260 / 250. As in...

      Talents Abilities
      Slot 1 Cunning Super Sap
      Slot 2 Early Bird Ultra Exhaustion
      Slot 3 Perceptive Mega Leech
      Slot 4 Crafty Ultra Mute
      Slot 5 Thinkin' Cap Ultra Charge
      Slot 6 Durable Pipe Down
      Slot 7 Astute Mega Hurry
      Slot 8 Relentless Ultra Hurry
      Slot 9 Brilliant Big Hurry
      Slot 10 Refreshed Super Hurry
      * BOLD - ideal for Epic
      * Italic - options for Mega
      * Grey - the least perfect

      Note that the MY idea of Perfect might not be identical to everyone's idea of Derby Perfection. Some may favor Spiffy Pop or Bummer in place of either Big Hurry and Ultra Exhaustion, but I've included those two mainly because while they may not be ideal on a teen, adult, or ancient pet, Big Hurry paired with Ultra, Mega, and Super Hurry might be some people's idea of a perfect EPIC pet while a pet with Super Sap, Mega Leech, and Ultra Exhaustion can be paired with pretty much anything to be "perfect."

      Also, for those wondering about why SUPER Hurry is on my Perfect pet instead of MEGA Hurry, there's a reason.....

      Should also mention that there are two versions of "perfect" Talents - one combination includes Perceptive, the other Relentless. While the Perceptive combo has a lower Total Cost to Cheer (8), I consider both equal because the Relentless combination gets the Cost To Cheer on grass to 1 and grass is the most common surface.

      Whew - what a project it's been! To get some idea of what a journey it's been, know that Micky was hatch number 962 of this project, which includes 931 Stain Glass Rollers (55 of which are Epic or Mega), 14 Snow Bunnies (to boost the gene pool early on and to get perfect stats), 13 Web Masters (to get Perceptive and Ultra Charge) and 5 Snow Beasts including Anna, the pet used to mix with the very first Stained Glass Roller.

      And as I mentioned above, there are quite a few different versions of "Perfect" and Micky is just the first of...well...at least a few more to come. Right now I have a few Mickys, including....
      QUEEN MICKY


      Total Cost to Cheer - 8 (4/1/2/1)

      ...and the newest addition to the Micky series -
      MIGHTY MICKY


      Total Cost to Cheer - 8 (4/1/2/1)

      ...and now, the FINAL Micky!
      SIR MICKY


      Total Cost to Cheer - 9 (4/2/1/2)

      In addition to my Mickys, I also have my Buttercups - pets that would be otherwise perfect but for one tiny, little imperfection.

      DOCTOR BUTTERCUP

      Total Cost to Cheer - 9 (4/1/1/3)

      KING BUTTERCUP

      Total Cost to Cheer - 9 (4/2/1/2)


      While this project has been a bit of an obsession for me, I'd like to thank Patrick FairyStalker and Lance for their contributions. Derby pets are pain to create mostly because so few people care about them, but without Patrick and Lance I wouldn't be anywhere close to finishing this quest.

      Anyway, for those looking to improve their Derby Gene Pool, look for a Micky in a Kiosk near you!

      Here's to seeing some more Mickys on the race track!

      Re: Introducing Micky & The Ultimate Derby pet

      In my one Derby practice run, I couldn't even stay on the track, so most of this doesn't mean much to me. However, when I saw that 932 hatches number, what came to mind is what they say in Jamaica: "maximum respect!"

      And good luck with your next adventures.

      Ah, derby and it's glitches. Jumping off the track and going cross country is a known issue on a few courses if you lane change at the very start of the race.

      Thanks K I....

      Re: Introducing Micky & The Ultimate Derby pet

      With the addition of Mighty Micky, perhaps the best all around, I think I'm finally done.

      Mighty Micky

      I still have 3 Micky potential pets in training to Epic or Mega, but I think I've hatched my last Stained Glass Roller. After 1,042 of them, I'm ready for something else....
