Moonlit Pursuit 月光の追跡 and Dawn Dash 夜明けの疾走 are collectively the fourth main expansion of cards from the DP Era of the Pokémon Card Game in Japan. The set continues to feature Generation IV Pokémon and Pokémon LV.X in the card game.


Moonlit Pursuit and Dawn Dash are dual expansions that make up the fourth expansion block in the Pokémon Card Game DP Era. It is based on Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, featuring Generation IV Pokémon. They were released on October 26, 2007.

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, while Majestic Dawn mostly contained cards from the Dawn Dash expansion.
