    Despite the fact that MacBook Pros were never "pro", I think there will be no more MacBook Pro 13'' in future.

    I just looked up how much it is to replace the battery of a 13'' and on http://www.apple.com/batteries/replacements.html they don't even talk about "pro" anymore. It's just "aluminium".
    Is this a change they made recently or was it always like this? For me this would be missleading if I want to change my battery.

    It`s their best selling machine, however I can see them using a more "air" like spec in future, no sense in selling 2 models that are, in essence, the same.
    I guess it depends on 13" air vs 13" Pro sales figures.
    The 13" "Pro" is a misnomer in any case, as it is on the larger models it`s just a name.

    That battery is for the 13" Aluminium MacBook.
    It was made from October of 2008, to June of 2009 when the 13" Pro was officially released. All of the real 13" MacBook Pros (That is, not the aluminium ones from Oct '08 to June '09) don't have user replaceable batteries.

    Try searching for an independent seller as Apple will not usually sell these batteries direct to the public as they are "not user replaceable".
    Swapping it yourself can invalidate your warranty.
    In fact it`s a 10 minute job and not at all difficult.
