Update: As of Patch 8.1, players can unlock a vendor that will sell opposing factions’ BFA pets.
Currently, the only known way to obtain this item is from PVP Pet Battle wins (queued).
Certain vendor restrictions apply. These new vendors will not sell pets that are gated or locked by reputation, and the Horde vendor will not sell Bumbles, which requires an Alliance-only achievement.
Many BFA vendor pets have prerequisites before they show up on the listed vendor. Some vendors also require extra steps to have them appear. Here’s a consolidated list of those Battle For Azeroth vendors and vendor pets.
