Aarune talking to the player

Aarune is a world traveler from Unova who owns a Flygon. He is first met on Route 111, where he will teach the player about Secret Bases. After the player has defeated Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS at the top of Mt. Chimney, he can be met inside the Fiery Path, where he will give the player TM96 (Nature Power) and suggest they visit him at Fortree City's Secret Base Guild. In Fortree City, Aarune will tell the player about Secret Base teams and be ready to battle them once per day. Aarune will also give the player various rewards based on how many flags they have collected from other Secret Bases. Once the player has collected 1000 flags, Aarune will give the player a Garchompite.

Aarune debuted in PS612, where he and Wally witness Sapphire crash-landing into the waters of Route 120 after she was defeated by Zinnia. They fish the unconscious Sapphire out of the water and give her a place to rest in Wally's Secret Base. After Sapphire wakes up, Aarune introduces himself and reveals that he healed her injured Pokémon at a Pokémon Center. The meeting is interrupted when Hoopa accidentally transports Rayquaza into the Secret Base through its rings.
