Please see the Tribble FAQ for more info on Tribble breeds, powers, etc. So far, no ordinary breed discovered has more than a double power (and those are difficult to produce), while the pre-order bonus tribble has a triple power. It also has a color that so far hasn't been able to be duplicated through breeding. This qualifies as "exclusive" by any reasonable definition.

Even if it eventually becomes possible to breed similar tribbles, it looks like it will take considerable effort and time. Most of the other pre-order bonuses are only really relevant for the first few levels, so having an ultra-rare tribble right from the start that would take many hours and an inventory full of rare foods to breed is still pretty competitive.
