Just saying but getting a boss or skilling pet at level 1 with 0 xp doesn't make sense and shouldn't even be allowed and all players with 0 xp and/or 0 kc pets should have them removed. Thoughts?

There should be a minimum kill count and level for boss pets and skilling pets.
But the damage has been done and undoing it wouldn't be fair to those who got theirs legitimately, which it was at the time (and still is).

There's no such thing as a 0XP pet, the game does count fractions, and a 1 in a billion chance is still earned, 0.1XP pets ftw. Furthermore, DTD kills are still valid kills, because otherwise DTD shouldn't give drops at all, the condition of a boss pet isn't to kill bosses, but to encourage them to give you loot one way or another, and is why the mega ducklings don't require killing Mega duck to achieve a boss pet. Suppose there is a combination of poetry that would stop the battle and simple convince Nex to hand you over the loot because you're both Zarosian loyalists, that too would count as a drop and should award the pet.

No support.

Agreed, it's kinda lame that you can get a pet like that without even learning to do a single real kill.

But there is: first get lucky and get the pet at any level/exp -> go to Nastroth and reset that skill back to level 1 -> enjoy 0 exp pet. Doesn't work for most skill pets, because you obviously cannot reset most skills, but for a few it does and people have done so.

Fully agree. Currently, a 0xp prayer pet is obtainable due to an outdated and overlooked piece of content related to the 2012 combat formula change.

Today that is being heavily abused, which is both unfair and boring for everyone else. It's taking a piece of content, the reset system, that was added as a courtesy then using it to obtain items and achievements that should be unavailable.
There are no noobs, just players worse than me.

The pets don't claim the XP you *got* them at, only the XP you currently are at.

If you want a serious answer from me, I would give partial support, supposed that there was extra information on the examines. "My currrent xp is X and I got this pet at XP Y"

Otherwise, the pet does not demonstrate what XP you got them at and never has had that guarantee. You have gained at least 0.1xp, somewhere prior to resetting it, and earned the pet properly.

Similarly, you could add the drop that gave the boss pet to their examines, which would encourage people to keep bossing even if they have a 0/Low KC pet.
