Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl is the tenth season of the dubbed version of the Pokémon anime. It follows the fourth and final dubbed season of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire, and as such is the first dubbed season of Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl. It follows Ash as he begins his journey in the Sinnoh region, along with his old friend Brock and a new girl named Dawn. Ash continues to challenge Gyms, while Dawn competes in Pokémon Contests.

It began with Following A Maiden's Voyage!, which first aired in sequence on June 4, 2007 (having been part of a "preview" of Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl more than half a month earlier, close to the release of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl) in the United States, and ended with Smells Like Team Spirit! which originally aired on February 1, 2008. The season skips DP048 due to that episode being a clip show. It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2007-2008 Cartoon Network Saturday morning lineup.

It is preceded by Pokémon: Battle Frontier and succeeded by Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension.


If Gary Oak is headed for the Sinnoh region, then Ash Ketchum won’t be far behind! Ready to take on the Sinnoh League, Ash brings along Pikachu and meets up with Brock in Sinnoh, where the pair of Trainers are soon joined by a third—Dawn, a novice Pokémon Coordinator determined to follow in the footsteps of her mother. Both Ash and Dawn struggle with their respective paths, but it’s easy for them to make new friends, gaining new Pokémon like Turtwig and Piplup.
