Synopsis

The opening begins with multiple colors shown, as well as the faces of Ash, Dawn, and Brock. The title is then shown. The trio, with Pikachu and Piplup, are now running across a grassy plain. After a close-up of Dawn, they are now on a sailboat, with all their Pokémon and Wingull above. After a close-up of Brock, he is now seen cooking with Pikachu and Mamoswine nearby and then the Pikachu and Piplup are seen playing while the Pokémon, Ash, Dawn and Brock are seen cheering them on. Dawn, with Piplup and Ambipom, are then seen glaring at Zoey and her Glameow and Kenny and his Prinplup while Ash, with Pikachu and Chimchar, glare at Paul with his Honchkrow. Dawn then slightly pushes Ash. Ash then gives her a thumbs-up as the sun rises. Close ups of Ash, Dawn and Brock and Pikachu and Piplup are seen. They are now seen running across a map of Sinnoh. Ash and Dawn then give each other a high-five. Then, from left to right, Delia, Professor Oak, Max, Tracey, May, Misty, and Gary are seen. The Pokémon then are seen smiling in pairs; Buizel and Ambipom, Buneary and Grotle, Staraptor and Gliscor, Happiny and Pachirisu, Mamoswine and Croagunk, Chimchar and Sudowoodo and, finally, Pikachu and Piplup. Team Rocket are then seen blasting off with their Pokémon, one by one. Then Saturn is seen sending out his Toxicroak. He is then joined by Mars and Jupiter. In the fiery background, Cyrus and Team Galactic's Golbat appear. J, riding her Salamence, then appears with her ship behind her. Ash's Pokémon then appear and show off their moves; Buizel uses Aqua Jet, Staraptor uses Aerial Ace, Gliscor, and then Grotle, run off, Chimchar uses Flame Wheel and Pikachu uses Volt Tackle. The gang once again run across the map. Regigigas is then seen fighting Darkrai, using Hyper Beam. The opening closes with the trio, with Piplup and Pikachu, posing happily.

Trivia

Errors

  • In the episode in which Swinub evolves, the opening animation replaces it with Mamoswine rather than Piloswine. In the following episode,which was originaly aired in a special with the episode where Piloswine evolves, it replaces Mamoswine but then returns as Mamoswine in the following episodes.

Variants

  1. DP096 - DP100: The original animation.
  2. DP101 - DP103: Grotle replaced its pre-evolution.
  3. DP104 - DP105: Mamoswine replaces Swinub.
  4. DP106: The opening is corrected with Mamoswine being replaced by Piloswine.
  5. DP107 - DP118: Mamoswine replaces Piloswine.
  6. DP119: Staraptor replaces Staravia.
