Suggestion: An item that will give that pet an alternate look when placed in a pet's inventory.

Reasoning: Instead of creating many pets that are just reskins of existing pets, Nexon can instead create tradeable pet outfits to turn existing base pets into special themed versions. This helps to alleviate the problem of too many pet types and too many pets per account.

Details: The cash shop will sell the base pet and sometimes the alternate version during sales or seasonal promotions. Alternate versions of pets in the cash shop will literally just be the basic pet with a pet outfit already in their inventory. During events that give away a pet, the pet outfit can be a minor prize and the base pet can be the grand prize. Pets that benefit from this system the most: Holiday versions of pets like Christmas Alpaca, Lovely versions of small pets like Lovely Scottish Fold, ALL of those dang Sheeptuplets, the Food Trucks variants, Milky Way versions of pets, those pet Seals wearing adorable outfits, and many more!

Indirect Benefits: Once this framework is in place and people understand that a pet can be changed through inv items, we can do other things with it. Example, using a saddle item to turn single-rider pet into two-rider pet version with slightly different graphics. What else is possible?

    Hmmm This idea is good to an extend BUT I do like the idea of getting different pets from events still, even if it's reskinned, there are people who can't have the option to buy NX so they rely on free pets from events.

    Also, they could maybe to like a Sub-inventory for the pet outfits so they don't take up their original inventory.

    Or make them into pet-specific Pet Totems. (like the Red/Blue/Yellow/Pink Collars that are currently available)
    That way even if they took up pet inventory space, they could be useful outside of their appearance changes.
