-And yup, the bird just flipped the fish in its beak and is now eating it?

This is presumably helpful to the bird, since its doing most of the work.  It's hard to tell for sure whether it's helpful or not to the fish, though it doesn't look especially pleasant. 

The fleet has a handful of old novels from the dead world.  A few mentioned that pokemon would eat each other, though exactly why or how had been so obvious to the people writing that they hadn't bothered to explain.  If that information had made its way to the fleet, it had done so in the crystal data banks which had failed upon launch.  It was subject to quite a bit of scholarly debate that Azure typically avoided.  The two main camps were that pokemon must have been made from meat and bone like a human and fed like humans, or that they were made of whatever daemons were but had stomachs which could absorb energy in some way from the golden dust particles given off upon death.

Either way, it doesn't seem like a good time to experiment.  Bad enough to potentially rely on wild berries if they went without finding intact food cans for long enough.  Berries of some kind are something he knows humans can eat.

Well, the bird gives them a brief look, and then stalks away, wading further downstream.

There's a few insects buzzing around near the surface of the water, and they can probably hear birds singing but... Yeah, they're still pretty much completely alone, at least of anything more complicated that the bird.

They'll watch over the water as it boils for a few minutes, then cools enough to being drinkable. Still-warm water isn't very refreshing, but it's better than nothing.

Then it will be time to keep walking.
