Rayquaza lets out a roar of triumph, then flies back over to Stratus, a huge grin on his face.
<I'm not really surprised.>
Stratus turns and gazes off into the distance, in the direction Foreign!Salamence flew off in.
<He's going to be okay, isn't he?>
Rayquaza nods, reaching down to pat the Dragonite on the shoulder.
<He'll be fine, I'm sure. I got the impression when battling that it would take more than that to take him down for good.>
Stratus frowns, still rather concerned, but decides to trust the sky-deity's judgment.
<If you say so...> Flies up to Rayquaza's head. <So, did you enjoy that?>
Rayquaza nods, giving Stratus a big smile.
<I can't remember the last time I had so much fun. I never normally fight for leisure, only to do my job...>
The Dragon pauses, thinking.
<...I want to do it again.> To Stratus. <Would you like to battle with me?>
Stratus nearly jumps out of his scales in fight.
<Whoa, whoa, whoa! You just had a fight! You may be immortal, but you shouldn't get too carried away!>
Rayquaza frowns at this, then nods in agreement.
<You're right, I probably should pace myself a bit. I should take a five minute break, at least...>
Smirks. <Only joking.>
