I'm like really confused, I see that the majority of high-value pixpets are of higher rarity (naturally). And I assume this is because they have a better lifting capacity. But there are some pets like the Indigoat which aren't worth much, being common, but can lift. The thing that really confuses me though is why Velibolts are so expensive on the market.

Thanks in advance.

Hello! If I had to guess I would say they have a very popular base design concept coupled with a two-stage evolution process. Very few other pixpets have multiple evolutions, so Velibolt rarity is a combination of design and evolution; also the higher evolutions have much greater lifting capacities IIRC.

Ahh makes sense, I was under the impression that it was simply because they are dinosaurs. xd

Which other pixpets have 2 evolution stages then?

Igupunk is the only other pet right now that has two evolutions. Another reason Velibolt may be popular is because they have a chance of hatching lime and finding the sought-after fruit bowl item, which is one of the few useful outdoor items for satisfaction level.

It’s partially becuase despite their ‘normal’ rarity they’re actually pretty uncommon to find lol
Less so now than they were before, but how many veli eggs do you see in the markets compared to the other pets, y’know?

And there you have it, the chicken raptor has manipulated the market in a bid for him and his Velibolts to take over the world.... or at least Pixpets

I like to think its appearance is like a pun since there is a type of birds called raptors.

They have 2 stages of evolution which mean their last form yield you x3 pc . 1st form or pets with no evolution form give you x1 pc rate from each hoard. 2nd form evolution and elgendaries give you x2 pc rate . While the 3rd form or 2nd evolution pets give you x3 pc which mean you get the most pc outcome from hoard with those pets if we count all pets are lv 100 with same slvl. Hope it helps.

Short answer: Pixpet’s players value velibolts, so they became more expensive.
Long answer: Velibolts are one of the few pets that can have the lime color group, and they can evolve twice. Right now there aren’t that many lime pets, although additions like Owluck will change that. Also, Velibolt is cute.

Hey guys, I'm locking this thread because it's been necroed a couple times with answers that are very similar to ones already posted.

If the original poster (Saneity) feels that their question hasn't been answered satisfactorily, they can PM me and I'll unlock the thread. ^^
