I'm a huge Pokémon fan and found that they are adding the battle pet system in Mists of Pandaria.

How many different TYPES of battle pets are there? (I understand that there can be different skins for the same type purely for aesthetic values)

What are their abilities?

There are ten, with corresponding strengths and weaknesses. I have just confirmed this in the beta:

Their strengths and weaknesses are as follows:

  1. Beast - takes 50% more damage from mechanical; takes 33% less damage from humanoid
  2. Critter - takes 50% more damage from beasts; takes 33% less damage from elemental
  3. Dragonkin - takes 50% more damage from humanoid; takes 33% less damage from flying
  4. Elemental - takes 50% more damage from aquatic; takes 33% less damage from mechanical
  5. Flying - takes 50% more damage from magic; takes 33% less damage from beasts
  6. Humanoid - takes 50% more damage from undead; takes 33% less damage from critter
  7. Magical - takes 50% more damage from dragonkin; takes 33% less damage from aquatic
  8. Mechanical - takes 50% more damage from elemental; takes 33% less damage from magical
  9. Undead - takes 50% more damage from critter; takes 33% less damage from dragonkin
  10. Aquatic - takes 50% more damage from flying; takes 33% less damage from undead

Individual battle pet skills have different postives/negatives in terms of doing damage to different pet types, so that isn't determined by the type themselves.
