I agree that scraping doesn't seem like the best solution here, but rather for the reason that I can't find any site that has all the information I'm after. I'm not looking for account/character-specific information, though: I'm just after a listing of all pets, abilities and their effects. I don't think it causes a problem for me if information on which accounts own which pets takes a long time to update through Battle.net as this isn't the information I'm after anyway.

I don't know if there is any API that gives the effects of each ability (outside the text description). If so, this could well be a good option.
