"No," he whispered.
The Pokemon fell to the ground, unmoving. Not even the rise and fall of its chest to show it was still breathing. A heavy silence closed in around Tobias as he realized the truth.
The Dragonite stood tall over its fallen foe and roared in triumph. Lance's smile quickly turning into a look of shock and horror as he realized what he'd done. Tobias knelt beside his companion, throwing his arms around him, but it was no use. His best friend lay dead in his hands. "No no no."
Lance looked down at his communicator and opened a channel to the Pokemon Center. "Get up here now! We need help!" A sound caused him to look up. A familiar sound. The sound of a pokeball opening and a Pokemon being summoned. Lance looked up to see a very angry looking Charizard and Tobias facing him and his own Dragonite down. Tobias was glaring at him, panting, tears rolling down his cheeks. Lance shook his head, holding up his hands. "Tobias, I am so sorry. I forfeit. You are the Champion."
Tobias closed his eyes, squeezing out the last tears of anguish. "No, I'm not." Shaking his head, he opened his eyes and looks right into Lance's, his Charizard's tail flame reflecting brilliantly off them as he continues to glare with a deadly determination that Lance found unsettling.
All Tobias had to do was point at the Dragonite, and his Charizard did the rest, flapping its powerful wings, Launching itself forward. Its claws glowed blue as it roared in anger. Tobias only realized later that he had been roaring right alongside his Pokemon.
