Rui laughed a bit. "I'm just as surprised as you are," she said about her new Pokémon's evolution. Hmm, she needed a name, and Rui couldn't think of anything fitting off the top of her head. She'd have to sit down and fumble with an internet search later.·
Rui heard the crackling sound that interrupted Shalin's explanation. She'd barely let out a yell of surprise when a wall of pink and white was before her: Blissey had moved to stand between her and the oncoming flames. Fortunately, her protection turned out to be unnecessary. Unfortunately, Kiku was now surrounded by a vortex of fire (why was it always fire today?). Shalin called upon a large Persian, apparently named Serena, in fancy riding gear and told Rui to get on and run.
"But—!" Rui began to protest, but one look at the situation told her that she would be hopelessly outmatched if she tried to join this battle. "Okay," she said instead, and she recalled Blissey back into her Luxury Ball. Grimacing at the first whiff of Kiku's foul-smelling musk drifting her way, she looked at the expectant Persian and...

... found it much easier than she expected to hook her foot through a stirrup and hoist herself onto the Pokémon's back. She gripped the bridle and immediately realized she didn't actually know what to do. "Uh... giddy-up?" She blushed, feeling rather silly for saying that; the unimpressed look that Serena gave her didn't help matters. Luckily, the Persian seemed to get the message and began bounding down the path away from the battle and the encroaching stink.
Rui wasn't sure how far they'd traveled when they came to a stop in a particularly sandy area. She turned her head to see if she could see Shalin behind them. "Do you think they're okay?" Rui asked Serena. She didn't get a response. Rui turned to see the Persian staring at something on the ground; a closer look revealed the black eye membranes of a Sandile buried in the sand. Serena lowered herself into a hunting crouch.
"Um, Serena?" Rui asked. No response except for a whip of the Persian's tail. The Sandile's eyes widened in alarm. Uh-oh.

Rui was surprising herself with her own reflexes today: She quickly unhooked one foot from a stirrup and used the other to hop off the Persian before said Pokémon leapt at the Sandile. Rui landed hard on her feet, but at least she didn't fall over or get trampled or anything. She sighed in exhausted relief.
