Diamond & Pearl: Galactic Battles title card.
Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Galactic Battles is the twelfth season of the Pokémon anime, following up to the eleventh season. It is the third season of the Diamond & Pearl series.
Unlike previous seasons in the dub, there was no break between this season and the previous one.
