This page was done as of 2010, unless any major changes to UCs happen again, or if there's anything else you guys would like to see added to the page (feel free to mail me here at any time). Cheers from me and Cineaste :)

Introduction

Unconverted pets - also known as 'old art' pets. Some of the most sought-after pets out there, mainly because UC pets cannot be obtained through creating and painting anymore, and also because quite a few of them are considered better-looking than their converted counterparts. Sometimes you keep hearing someone mention unconverted pets, yet you've no idea what they are, or perhaps you want to have a look at images of Neopia's UC pets. You've come to the right place.

To Answer Your Questions

Q: What is an unconverted pet?

As most of you know, in April 2007, the site went through a major change. The overall site layout was modified, and most importantly of all, our pets were converted - in other words, re-drawn. It happened without warning and most pets were converted automatically to fit the new looks. However, owners of certain species/colour combinations (227, to be exact) were given an option to have their pets stay the same instead of getting converted automatically, because TNT thought the changes were more drastic for these pets. The pets that remained unchanged are known as unconverted pets.

Because the main point of converting the pets was to make them customisable, unconverted pets cannot be customised with most wearable items.



Q: How do I know whether or not my pet is unconverted?

The easiest way to tell is to visit your quick ref. Under the 'Notices' section, there will be a message if your pet is unconverted - as circled in the screenie below:

Q: Is there a way to 'unconvert' my pet?

As much as we'd love to... there is no way to 'unconvert' your pet, or to create an unconverted pet. Not even if your pet was originally unconverted and you clicked on the "convert my pet" button. This change is PERMANENT, whether or not you were given a choice to have your pet stay unconverted - so think carefully if you're considering pressing that button! You will not have a chance to undo this decision!



Q: I have one of the pets listed below, but mine is converted. Why?

The pets that got the option of staying UC were painted before the re-draws. Any pet painted after the re-draws is automatically converted.



Q: If I pound/transfer my UC pet, will he/she convert?

Fortunately, no. Savvore was brought to my account via transfer, and he's unconverted, just like before!



Q: If I paint/morph my UC pet, will he/she remain the old art? No. If you change your pet's appearance in any way, he/she will convert.

Note: According to a Neopian who mailed me recently, using a morphing potion that is the same as the UC pet's species and colour does not convert it. The example given was an UC Mutant Scorchio, who did not alter after a Scorchio Transmogrification Potion was used. Technically this is not really 'changing' your pet because the species and colour remains the same, so it might mean that painting an UC Royal with a Royal PB doesn't convert it... This is just a guess, though, so I do not advise you try it. Haha. :P (Many thanks!)



Q: What about if I change his/her gender?

There are two (more) common ways to safely change an UC's gender safely -- battling the Lab Ray Scientist or using a Strange Potion.

If you do this, the gender will change but the art will stay the same. E.g. if you used the potion on a Royalboy pet, you will not end up with a Royalgirl version -- just a female Royalboy pet.

Note: I have received word from a kind Neopian who confirmed that a gender-change zap from the lab does not convert an UC pet. However, if you zap your UC Royal and he/she changes gender, your pet will be converted. (Many thanks!)



Q: My pet was painted/created before the re-draws. Why is he/she converted?

As I've said before, only certain species/colour combinations were given the option. If your pet wasn't one of those given the option, he/she was automatically converted.

Protecting your UC Pet

Hopefully you understand now how rare and special your unconverted pet is! Chances are, you'll want him/her to stay unconverted forever. Here are some ways you can ensure your UC pet remains UC for the years to come.


The following section is no longer necessary, because as of April 16th, 2010, TNT has declared all UCs immune to colour-changing random events. This applies to all UC pets (confirmed here). You can find the news update right underneath the krawk chocolate pics. Hooray! =)

I'm just leaving it here as a reference for colour-changing events. Again, they will not affect UCs at all.

Boochi Shields



Something has happened!

Oh no! Where on earth is [petname], you can't find him anywhere!!! Where on Neopia could he be?



Something has happened!

Oh no! Boochi fires his ray gun and turns [petname] into a Baby [petspecies]!!!




Boochi or Invisibleness is not the only danger. There is the Rainbow Water RE; very rare, but it exists. This is really the only thing an UC Baby Kougra has to be worried about. Here is an idea of what it looks like:

Something has happened!

A torrent of multi-coloured water falls from the sky and DRENCHES [petname]!!! You hear evil cackling from the sky...



Update: I got my hands on an actual screenie. The targeted pet was a Pink Usul, who turned Christmas as a result. (Many thanks!) Drag and drop for full view.




Keep them happy!

Keep your unconverted pet happy and fed. While this is something most people will do for any pet, if a pet is unhappy, angry, hungry, or sick, he/she may get hit by the Red/Blue Random Events. Remember, this event can hit any of your pets, not just your active!


Something has happened!

[Petname] doesn't look very happy. In fact, he looks downright Blue. Maybe a toy would help.
