Aril's curious. He checks if its mane is really hot.

Permalink

Yup, it's hot! Hotter than your typical wood fire, even, if he can discriminate that finely with his hand as a thermometer.

Permalink

He's a Solar, he can do anything he wants.

Well, a fire horse would be cool if he were a Terrestrial, but he's not, Sol Invictus be praised. "Wanna find out if there's anything else in here?" he asks Daana'd.

Permalink

Daana'd is totally down for another fight! How about against that sphere of rock with arms and legs and a head lumbering around farther into the cave?

Permalink

Sure thing! Some kind of minor elemental, huh.

...Aril runs up and punts it like a medicine ball. He's strong enough that, while it doesn't go flying, it is knocked back and up a few feet before crashing to the ground.

He feels his metatarsal crack as he kicks a rock the size of a small pony at full force. He doesn't care, that was hilarious.

Permalink

Shortly after crashing, it levitates itself in the air about a foot, then crashes down again with enough force to make the floor of the tunnel visibly ripple. Daana'd was already having trouble maneuvering in the cramped space; now she gets flung against a wall. Aril likewise loses his footing for at least a moment.

Permalink

For a brief moment, he does. In fact he's tossed bodily into the air. He lands well, though, and elects to punch the thing in the face. (Probably softer? It looks softer, at least.)

Permalink

It's rock everywhere, but slightly more yielding rock in the face area. It gets punched, and retaliates by making rocks rain down from the ceiling on Aril and Daana'd.

Permalink

Aril catches the largest of the rocks falling towards him and uses it to shield himself from the other rocks. He then overhands it at the creature with earth-shattering force.

Permalink

Earth-shattering is right! The creature goes backwards into a wall, which cracks under the impact. Then it slumps to the ground and skulks away, defeated.

Permalink

Aril goes to check on Daana'd. "You alright, girl?"

Permalink

Daana'd is shaking off the dirt she got semi-buried in. "I'm alright, but kind of tired. Not super used to fighting on land yet. I've got maybe one or two more fights like that in me. Or a bunch of the fire horse."

Permalink

"Let's have one more, then, and we can go get you healed at the Pokécenter in town."

He looks around. Anything really cool in this volcano?

Permalink

There's a series of rocks, attached to each other in an unclear manner, that turns out to also be a giant snake!

Permalink

...this is too good.

"Daana'd, do you want a new friend?"

Permalink

Daana'd wants to grapple! The rock snake also wants to grapple! They look like a bowl of spaghetti. (Daana'd is kind of getting the worst of it.)

Permalink

Hmm. Aril disapproves of Daana'd getting the worst of it, but he can't really join the fray while they're entangled like that. He cheers her on, ready to call her back if she starts flagging.

Permalink

Daana'd won't give up while her friend is cheering her on! Eventually she has the rock snake in a very complicated pin.

Permalink

Aril feels that this is an appropriate time for him to apply Touch of Blissful Release and for their new friend to take a nap.

"Daana'd, let's take Pasiap here with us. I need to buy another capture orb for him, but in the meantime, do you think you can carry me and him at the same time?"

Permalink

"I'll be slower, but I can manage. It would go better if I was healed."

Permalink

"Of course."

Wound-mending Care Technique, Instant Treatment Methodology, syrup-thick golden sunlight pours through him into Daana'd and she's miraculously healed. Then he slings Pasiap over his shoulder (how is a thirty-foot stone serpent so light?) and climbs onto Daana'd.

Permalink

"Ahhh, that's much better. Now it will be no trouble at all." Daana'd undulates out of the cave system, mindful of her burdens' heads, then takes to the sky again. "Where shall we go?"

Permalink

"The building with the... blue roof," Aril recalls. "The place where I got your ball in Fuchsia looked like that."

Permalink

So she swoops down into the city and alights outside the blue-roofed building. Not being built to the scale of human cities, she's blocking the entrance a bit.

Permalink

Aril puts her back in her ball, then goes into the Pokémart, dragging an unconscious thirty-foot rock snake behind him. 

He picks a ball off the shelf and brings it up to the counter, four siu in his other hand. He drops the coins on the counter and presses the ball to Pasiap’s stony hide.
