Tobias (Japanese: アーシア島の長老 Earthia Island Elder) is a minor character who appeared in The Power of One. He is a Shamouti Island community elder.

History

Tobias in his festival costume.

Tobias was the one who informed Ash Ketchum and his friends of the ancient prophecy regarding the Legendary Birds and the guardian of the seas, Lugia. Like Carol and Melody, he doesn't take the island tradition too seriously. He even whispers to Ash that the costumed spectacular is a tourist gimmick.

Tobias and Carol stayed on Shamouti while Ash and Maren, and eventually Misty, Tracey, and Melody, set out to collect the three orbs of Fire, Ice, and Lightning to fulfill the prophecy.

Tobias was last seen with Carol and the other islanders, waving goodbye to Maren and her passengers.

Tobias briefly reappeared in a montage in The Rise of Darkrai, which chronicled the preceding nine movies.
