According to Pete special ability he can buy common item for 2 trophies in the shop and transform it to unique item or even spell that costs 3-4 trophies, is it right? I think this work similar to Monterey, Bob and Dexter abilities, that works in the shop.

That definitely doesn't make him the best trader. Getting 2 for 1, even 2 commons for one, is better than just getting a unique for the cost of a common. I think it's better on straight trophies, but the real cost of buying items is time, anyway.

His ability just says "when you gain", so yes, it should work in the shop.

I agree with Orion that this doesn't make him fantastic. I think going to the shop is usually either a waste of time or a sign that you are already losing.
