Pet is too high level to uncage

Greetings!

I recently picked up a level 19 rare darkmoon tonk pet for 5.5k. I as gonna sell it on for a profit but I thought for 5.5k that was cheap for a high level pet. However there is a problem.

When I go to uncage the pet it says that it is a too high level for you to uncage. Is it to do with my pet battle team. A level 10, 8 and 6 or what?
I think you have to have another pet at the same level to be able to uncage it.
Something like that anyway.
I guess you have to level up your pets first - so you won't get so boosted by having a higher level one.
Exactly as the others said, you can't learn a pet with a higher level then you already own. Quite logical, or everyone would just buy 3 level 25 pets and rock on. So, level your pets and when one reaches 19, you can learn your new pet.

And where exactly would 'everybody' need to buy those Pets if 'everybody' 'just' buys them?

Correct, 'everybody' would 'need' to buy them from other players, like players who actually enjoy levelling Pets.

All Blizzard did with this restriction is provide yet another hurdle to desperately needed emergent gameplay.
Correct, I asked a GM once about this and the answer was that it was an issue that will get solved someday, but you need same level or higher pet to uncage it.
