|flying wyvern||coral highlands|
With the face, ears and wings of a bat, the tail of a pangolin, and a body that can explode like a puffer fish, the Paolumu is a fantastic creature. Covered in white fur with a pink face and rodent teeth, he also has a special air sac around his neck which, when inflated, allows him to hover above his enemy, attacking from above. He can also use the air stored in this bag as a weapon by blowing a strong wind at his enemies.
You'll find the cute creature triggering your scene in area 5. Initially, its attacks shouldn't be much of a problem. when he is mad,Paolumuit will suck in air to inflate itself and float above you. This can be frustrating for hunters who rely on melee combat. To solve this problem, bring a full set of Flash Capsules (3) with you, along with 10 Flash Bugs to craft additional ammo on the fly. This allows you to carry 13 flash bullets in total. A well-thrown flash pod will knock him out and deflate the air he brought with him. To really take him down, you can also equip your buddy with the bug flash device. Alternatively, you can try to hit him by jumping off ledges and walls, but this could take a minute and expose him to your attacks.
As for his attacks, he has few, one of which can be fatal for hunters with low defense. You will see this attack when it is inflated and in the air. The tip is when it goes over the hunter's head and slams them down, hitting you and dealing a devastating amount of damage. A simple turn at the right moment will allow you to escape with ease.
Other than that, his other attacks aren't much of a concern. Avoid the gusts of wind that he shoots and sucks in to make him lose his balance, as well as the tornadoes that he occasionally causes.
If you are really struggling, using theglaive bugIt effectively makes this fight much easier as you will be able to deal damage constantly.
