Climbing (Ex)

Pulsian red chocobos are natural climbers. It has a climb speed of 30 feet and gains a +8 bonus on Climb checks. It can also take 10 on Climb checks, even if stress or distractions would otherwise prevent it from doing so. Also, it is never flat-footed while climbing.

Surefooted Stride (Ex)

Pulsian red chocobos may move through any sort of difficult terrain (such as thorns, overgrown areas, rubble and the like) at its normal speed without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. Areas that have been magically manipulated, however, still affect it.
