We Will Be Heroes is the opening theme song for the English dub of The Rise of Darkrai and Pokémon Diamond & Pearl: Battle Dimension. It was written by John Loeffler and David Wolfert. The Diamond & Pearl: Battle Dimension opening song was sung by Kirsten Price, whereas the movie version was performed by John Loeffler.

The opening animation featured footage from the Japanese opening, Together, and from the first Diamond & Pearl ending, By Your Side, along with some selected scenes from the anime, mostly from Bibarel Gnaws Best.

TV version lyrics

On the road, far from home,
you don't have to feel alone.
Brave and strong, together we will be.
It's our destiny!

We will be heroes,
We can change the world if we try!
I go where you go,
Forever friends, you and I!

We will be heroes!
Battle Dimension
Pokémon!

Movie version lyrics

Pokémon!
Another day, another fight
Another chance to make things right (Pokémon!)
We will be strong, the way it should be
Ready for the challenge, you and me!

We will be heroes (Pokémon!)
We can change the world if we try (Darkrai!)
I go where you go (Pokémon!)
Forever friends, you and I (Darkrai!)
We will be heroes
Pokémon!

The moment's right, the time has come
For us to stand, together as one
So take my hand and follow me
To give it is our destiny!

We will be heroes (Pokémon!)
We can change the world if we try (Darkrai!)
I go where you go (Pokémon!)
Forever friends, you and I (Darkrai!)
We will be heroes
Pokémon!

We will be heroes (Pokémon!)
We can change the world if we try (Darkrai!)
I go where you go (Pokémon!)
Forever friends, you and I (Darkrai!)
We will be heroes
Pokémon!
We will be heroes
Pokémon!
We will be heroes
Pokémon!

We will be heroes
Pokémon!

Trivia

  • The TV version is the first dub title song that is sung by a solo female.
  • It is also the first time that credits appear during a TV opening.
  • It is the first anime opening that was used in the movie corresponding to the season before its release.
  • Normally the dub openings would follow in the same pattern as the Japanese openings. However, at the time the Japanese Diamond & Pearl series had yet to make a second opening. Therefore, scenes that were not used in the first dubbed opening, Diamond and Pearl, were added in.
  • It can be considered ironic that the only scene Team Rocket appears in (smiling at the viewer) occurs while the line "Forever friends, you and I." is sung.
  • This is the first time that a dub opening is created before the japanese one.
