Is there a way to release a animal from its capture pod?

    I was messing around with the capture pods I got in missions and accidentally captured a creature that I didn't want. I can't make the pods yet and just want to know if there's a simple way to release the creature so I can capture the one I want.

    As far as I'm aware, there doesn't seem to be an option to 'reclaim' a capture pod by getting rid of the creature contained inside.
    One thing I will mention is that without a Pet Station, you won't be able to heal your pets, or access the 'Pet Tether' - meaning that any critters you capture won't be as usable for either combat or decoration until the healing and tether items are set up respectively.

    Ok, thanks for your help! I guess I'll have to deal with a bad pet until I get more capture pods. I hope that maybe Chucklefish will add a way to reclaim the pods as each one costs a diamond according to the wiki.

    There should really really be a mod for this o,o
    If anyone has any ideas, I'll help make one!
    (For now, I'll just throw the item in the garbage deleter, use cheats to spawn a new one, and pretend like the creature goes away happy instead of its mass-energy ceasing to exist in the universe X'D )

    ...why garbage them? SELL THEM. Filled pods earn Pixels. Every little bit...

    you can redo missions for a chance at getting more capture pods, too
