Diamond and Pearl is the opening theme song for the English dub of the tenth season, Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl. It was used from Following A Maiden's Voyage! to Smells Like Team Spirit!. The opening animation is composed of clips from the eleventh Japanese opening Together, and clips from the episodes Arrival of a Rival! and A Gruff Act to Follow!. The song is sung by Chris Barczynski.

A lengthened version of the song was used in O'er the Rampardos We Watched!.


It's all about the challenges.
It's a brand new game
and a brand new world.

New rivals,
as you fight for survival.
Nothing can stop you,
Diamond and Pearl.

It's all about the battle.
You gotta play smart.
You gotta move faster behind
every win there's a chance to begin, again!
You gotta take it all if you wanna be a Master...

It's time for adventure,
Diamond and Pearl.
We can change the world.
