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 Monferno, 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, Monferno 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, Monferno 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.

We fight, make up, and then we fight again
There are a lot of things I want to say to you
But foremost...
"Thanks for being here for me!"

Companions in this journey, compassion in the world
I pretend to understand those things, but
The truth is...
"I'm happy you're here for me!"

Nice Partner!
Nice Rival!
I'll push you forward
I'll pull you along
The sun seems so dazzling when I look up at it
Hey Hey Hey!

If it all goes well, let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
If we're feeling down, we'll come right back!
As long as we are together
I will not give up so easily! GO GO GO!

It all went well, so let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
Shake hands with our opponent in battle
As long as we're together
We can go even further than before! GO GO GO!

Hey Hey Hey!
If we're feeling down, we'll come right back!
As long as we are together
I will not give up so easily! GO GO GO!

Take aim with Bubble Beam!
I've come to rely on Pochama, but
Sometimes...
I'll find myself in a mega pinch!

I let out a cry of "100,000 Volts!"
Pikachu is my pride and joy, but
To put it simply...
That doesn't mean I'll win!

Nice Partner!
Nice Rival!
We may argue
But as long as we follow each other
I think we'll find a way to compromise!
Hey Hey Hey!

It all went well, so let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
I won't ever forget today's victory!
As long as we're together
We'll escape from any kind of pinch!
Hey Hey Hey!

Extending our arms, let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
Smiling this much is so heartwarming!
As long as we're together
Strong opponents are also welcome! GO GO GO!

Yeah Yeah Yeah!
Yeah Yeah Yeah!

Through today, tomorrow, and the day after tomorrow
This journey goes forever on, but
Always...
Your smile is with me!

To the north, to the south, east and west
The scenery goes on changing, but
No matter where I go...
Your smile is always there!

Nice Partner!
Nice Rival!
Protecting me
Saving me
Our road goes on through and ever expanding wasteland
Hey Hey Hey!

Underneath the sky, let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
We can understand that more easily than words!
As long as we're together
We can fly away, facing our dreams!
Hey Hey Hey!

If it all goes well, let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
If we're feeling down, we'll come right back!
As long as we're together
I will not give up so easily! GO GO GO!
Hey Hey Hey!

It all went well, so let's high five!
Hey Hey Hey!
Shake hands with our opponent in battle
As long as we're together
We can go even further than before! GO GO GO!
GO GO GO! GO GO GO!

Trivia

Errors

  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 - DP120: Staraptor replaces Staravia.
  7. DP121 - DP132: Presentation switches to widescreen.
  8. DP133: Monferno replaces Chimchar.
  9. DP134 - DP157: Song is updated with a remixed version, High Touch! 2009. As with Together2008, the opening animation remains completely unchanged from the previous version.
