    I. What are pets?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pets are generally monsters that you can "pet" and become your companions
    while exploring the world of Midgard...... This feature is currently NOT
    IMPLEMENTED in the International version of the Ragnarok Online servers 
    and will be implemented in June, having played the other versions of 
    RO (Which now has pets) , I made this guide to help people on how to 
    capture, take care and have an idea on pets in RO in general.
    
    As far as I know, these are the pets that you can capture in Ragnarok 
    Online :
    
    Poring
    Drops
    Picky
    Lunatic
    Chon Chon
    Savage Babe
    Rocker
    Peco Peco
    Spore
    Poporing
    Smokie
    Poison Spore
    Steel Chon Chon
    Orc Warrior
    Munak
    Sohee
    Isis
    Dokaebbi
    Hunter Fly
    Green Petite
    Deviruchi
    Baphomet Jr.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    II. What is needed to get them?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To start, you need the taming item that is suitable for that monster,
    for example, to capture a Drops, you need an Orange Juice.
    
    A "Pet Incubator" is needed to "hatch" the egg and receive the monster.
    To use a Pet Incubator, double click on the Pet Incubator, after that,
    a list of eggs which can be hatched will appear, in which click on the
    on the egg you want and press "OK".
    
    Also, a "Pet Food" is required to feed your monsters, this is very
    important, since if you skimp and/or forget to feed your pet, the
    monster could run away or die. But the direct opposite is also 
    possible, they can also die if you over feed them too much.....
    
    To get most of these items, when the pets are implemented in RO,
    there will be new NPCs which would sell these items.
    
    This is a table of which item is needed to "tame" a particular monster :
    
    Unripe Apple             = Poring
    Orange Juice             = Drops
    Shining Stone            = Green Petite
    Armlet of Obedience      = Isis
    Baked Yam                = Smokie
    Book of Devil            = Baphomet Jr.
    Bitter Herb              = Poring  
    Book of Devil            = Deviruchi
    Deadly Noxious Herb      = Poison Spore
    Dew Laden Moss           = Spore
    Earthworm the Dude       = Picky
    Fatty Chubby Earthworm   = Peco Peco
    Horror of Tribe          = Orc Warrior
    Monster Juice            = Hunter Fly 
    No Recipient             = Munak
    Old Broom                = Dokaebbi
    Rainbow Carrot           = Lunatic
    Rotten Fish              = Chon Chon
    Rusty Iron               = Steel Chon Chon
    Singing Flower           = Rocker
    Well Dried Bone          = Baby Desert Wolf
    Silver Knife of Chastity = Sohee
    Sweet Milk               = Savage Bebe
    Tropical Banana          = Yoyo
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    III. How to catch a monster
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    To catch a monster, simply double click the taming item, and target the
    monster you want to catch.
    
    (PS. You will have a better chance of catching them if you damage them 
     first, the less life they have, the more chance you can catch them.)
    
    After that, you should see a kind of slot machine with only two choices,
    "success" and "failure" click on the button to stop the slot machine,
    when the machine stops on "failure" , you have failed and would never
    get an egg and wasted the taming item. If it stops on "success" , the
    monster would disappear and you will get the monster egg.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    IV. What to do after a successful capture
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After getting the egg from that monster, you will now need a "Pet
    Incubator" .
    
    To use a Pet Incubator, double click on the Pet Incubator, after that,
    a list of eggs which can be hatched will appear, in which click on the
    egg/monster you want and press "OK".
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    V. Pet Commands
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pet Information :
    In this command, you will be shown a window that lists it's name (Where
    you can rename it ONLY ONCE) , it's level (It also levels up just like
    the player.) , it's hunger level (From "Very Full" to "Full" to "Normal"
    to "Hungry" to "Very Hungry") and it's affection towards you.
    
    Perform / Performance :
    The pet will perform certain stunts for you. This "stunt" will be 
    different on the monster that you have and it's current relationship
    with you, the monster will perform a different stunt if it hates you
    and a different one if it likes you.
    
    Feed Pet :
    Feed your pet.
    
    Return to Egg status :
    Tired of your pet? Then revert it to egg form through this command,
    while the monster is reverted to an egg, it will never go hungry and/or
    run away.... However, to hatch them again, you will need to use another
    "Pet Incubator" ..............
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VI. Maintaining your Pet
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    After hatching the egg, you can first set a name for it, after setting
    it once, you cannot change it again, to think carefully of the name.
    
    Then look at it's status by right clicking on your pet and choosing
    "Pet Information" , if they are from normal to Hungry, feed them NOW,
    or you will risk the pet running away from you.
    
    So generally after that, you just need to feed your pet whenever it's
    hunger change to "Normal" or lower, also, giving them an equipment
    could also improve it's affection towards you.
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VII. Pet Accessories
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Pet accessories are "equipment" that can be used on a monster, however,
    currently, it only provides an extra eye-candy for your monster, such
    as glasses for your Rocker and a backpack for your Poring.
    
    Here is the list of Pet Equipment that is found is RO (As far as I know
    anyway..... ^^)
    
    Backpack       = Poring
    Rocker Glasses = Rocker
    Bark Shorts    = Poison Spore
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    VIII. What are next on Pets?
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    According to official statements from Gravity and some Ragnarok fansites,
    in the near future, pets would be also able to assist the player directly
    and/or warn them of dangers and other problems.....
    
    For example, if you are dying, a monster would suddenly show emoticons,
    and/or say something. They would be also able to gather item 
    drops by monsters......
    
    Also, they would be able to assist the players by attacking the monster
    currently being attacked by the player.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------
    For Ragnarok Online, but NOT Gravity anymore. I now officially hate 
    Gravity because my account got banned because of a stupid pic......... 
    Sad really.... They should be more busy banning scammers 
    and the trade bug abusers......... -_-
    
    Anyway, if anyone has seen any wrong spellings and the such, you can
