Pokémon DP: Battle Dimension is the eleventh season of the Pokémon anime, immediately following the conclusion of the tenth season. As such it is the second season of the Diamond & Pearl series, following Ash as he continues gathering Badges in Sinnoh and Dawn as she continues gathering Ribbons. It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2008-2009 Cartoon Network Saturday morning line-up.

It began on April 12, 2008 with the dub premiere Tears for Fears!, and concluded on May 2, 2009 with Sleepless In Pre-Battle!.

This is the second of four seasons that take place in the Sinnoh region. It is preceded by Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl and succeeded by Pokémon DP: Galactic Battles. This season began a new trend, similar to that in Japan where one episode is aired most weeks, there was no break between this season and the next one.

It began airing on digital TV's Jetix in the UK in late 2008. It began to air on UK Freeview, on January 5, 2009, simultaneously on CITV and ITV4. It began to air on YTV in Canada owned by Corus Entertainment on Monday, March 2, 2009.


It’s looking good for Ash as he works on his next three Gym Badges, but not so good for Dawn, coming off a pair of Contest defeats. Both will do what they can to become better Trainers, from entering the Wallace Cup competition to attending Professor Rowan’s Pokémon Summer Academy. Hopefully, the new tactics they pick up will give them the tools they need to succeed against the latest plot by Pokémon Hunter J—as well as the emerging threat of Team Galactic!
