Information

Great Encounters is the name given to the fourth main expansion of the Diamond & Pearl Series of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. It is based on Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, featuring Generation IV Pokémon. It was released on February 13, 2008.

Due to the six-month gap between the release of the fourth expansion block (Moonlit Pursuit and Dawn Dash) and the fifth expansion block (Cry from the Mysterious and Temple of Anger), Moonlit Pursuit and Dawn Dash were separated into two English expansions. Great Encounters mostly contained cards from the Moonlit Pursuit expansion.
