Aarune (Japanese: ギリー Girī) is a non-player character in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. He is an expert on Super-Secret Bases. He is the only character in the games to have the Trainer class Secret Base Expert (Japanese: ひみつきちマスター Secret Base Master).
In the games
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.

In the manga
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.
|Flygon is Aarune's only known Pokémon. It was first seen in a flashback when Aarune and Wally witnessed Sapphire falling onto Route 120.
None of Flygon's moves are known.
- In pre-Hall of Fame battles, Aarune uses an underleveled Flygon. His Flygon is at level 23, despite the fact that Trapinch doesn't evolve into Vibrava until level 35 and Vibrava doesn't evolve into Flygon until level 45.
- In the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version, Aarune hints at the special Secret Base that exists in Mossdeep City in the full game.
- In an interview with Nintendo Dream magazine, Ken Sugimori mentioned that Flygon was chosen for Aarune because it's the only Hoenn Pokémon not being used by a key character that could use both Fly and Secret Power, which are perfect moves for finding Secret Bases.
