  • Snow Boar

Watatsumi Island

Watatsumi Island is a great place to find potential pets, especially if you like water-based animals.

Tatarasuna Island

Tatarasuna Island may not have a long list of potential pets to choose from, but the animals it does have more than makeup for its lack of diversity. Tatarasuna Island is the only location where Bake-Danuki can be caught in the game! If you don’t know what these adorable creatures are, look them up immediately. If you’re going to catch animals with the Omni Ubiquity Net in Genshin Impact, you need to catch one of these cuties. This island also features the Pith Lizard, which can also only be caught in this location. The short but valuable list of catchable creatures in this location is:

  • Pith Lizard
  • Bake-Danuki

Dihua Marsh

The Dihua Marsh, like the Tatarasuna Island, doesn’t have a long list of potential pets dwelling in its depths. However, the animals that the Dihua Marsh does feature are very diverse and not too difficult to catch! This area is great if you love water-based animals but don’t want a fish for a pet. Fish can be great pets, but not all of them are as exciting as the Unagi. This marsh is also one of the only locations in the game where you can catch frogs! Frogs are adorable and make amazing pets, in real life and in Genshin Impact. All of the catchable animals located in the Dihua Marsh are:

  • Mud Frog

This village is also the only location in the game where Amateur Weasel Thiefs can be found! Weasels can be found around various locations on the map, but this location is the only area where this weasel can be found. An Amateur Weasel Thief may not sound like an ideal pet, but these little creatures are unbearably cute and can make fantastic companions for any player lucky enough to catch them. The entire list of catchable animals in this location is:

  • Crimson Finch
  • Squirrel
  • Amateur Weasel Thief
