I used the "howl bomb" strategy for this encounter.
Start with PWS and use Geyser, followed up with Whirlpool. Switch to Chrominius and use Howl. The resulting indirect damage to Gorespine will be heavy, but you'll need to use Surge of Power to finish off the beast.
This guy was really tough for me because my theoretical best pet against him -- my Clockwork Gnome -- would get massacred before I could launch off more than one Rocket. I finally beat him with an Effervescent Glowfly, Dragon Kite and a Magical Crawdad. It took several tries with this team, but the time I finally beat him I won having used the glowfly and kite alone.
Gorespine is one of ten new Legendary Elite pets added to Pandaria in Patch 5.2. Since he is an "Elite" pet, you will face him alone with your entire team (3v1).
