So, without further ado, here we go!
First off, the big thing that you have to know is that there's a huge thing that you have to overcome if you're going to try and fend off these legendary battle pets. Since this has a big focus on the Legion and fel corruption, there is a debuff on all of them called Fel Corruption (creative, right?). So, the first thing that you have to do is make sure that your pets survive that (and it hurts!), and then you actually have to beat the battle pets.
Another thing you have to worry about is, unlike the pets that you fight in Pandaria, these guys have a capturable backline! So, not only do you have to beat them, but you have to beat their buddies too. Keep that in mind when you're using these teams.
In ABC order (here's a map if you're looking for all of the different places that you can find them, by the way), here are the first 7 of the 15 legendary pet battles and how I beat them.
Bleakclaw. For Bleakclaw, I found that the best way to do it was to decoy and then spam the daylights out of him with a magic pet. I did it with the Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling, and then I went in with the Nexus Whelpling and beat the daylights out of him with Arcane Storm into Mana Surge. Made it easy as cake with that combination.

Corrupted Thundertail - This was one of the easier legendary fights that I did when I was running around Tanaan. I used a Zandalari Anklerender (Hunting Party, Primal Cry, Black Claw), Chrominius (Bite, Howl, Surge of Power) (he's one of my favorites, can you tell?), and the Anubisath Idol (Crush, Sandstorm, Deflect) to clear him out.
Cursed Spirit - Like the Corrupted Thundertail, this was fairly easy. You can take the Spirit himself out with just the Zandalari Anklerender (or whichever one you prefer) (Hunting Party, Primal Cry, Black Claw). Make sure you have other pets to deal with whoever's on his backline and you'll be set to go.
Dark Gazer - Speed reduction is at the core of what you're doing for the Dark Gazer, so I decided to bring my buddy the Zandalari Anklerender (Hunting Party, Primal Cry, Black Claw) back again. Yes, I know, my guide is exciting, isn't it? Anyway, use Primal Cry to slow his ass down, and then get him with Black Claw + Hunting Party. Your other two pets just need to be two non-flying types (they need to not be weak against magic) and you'll be good to go.
Defiled Earth - This guy is a total and complete ass, there's no two ways about it. It gave me a headache trying to figure out exactly how I wanted to get rid of him. Anyhow, the team that ended upDireflame - This little jerk hits really hard, so I figured it would be best to use a decoy strategy like I used above. Ended up using the Mechanical Pandaren Dragonling (Decoy), Chrominius (Bite, Howl, Surge of Power), and the Anubisath Idol (Crush, Sandstorm, Deflect).
working for me was my Molten Corgi (his name is Jack) (Bark, Cauterize, Inferno Herding), the Water Waveling (the Pandaren Water Spirit works here too) (Geyser is the main ability), and my BFF Chrominius (Bite, Howl, Surge of Power).

That's it for the first part of this guide. Stay tuned next week for the next part of this guide, so that you can finish clearing out these legendary boogers!
