Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl is the tenth season of the anime and the first season of the English dub of the Diamond & Pearl series. It follows Ash Ketchum 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 line-up.

This is the first of four seasons that take place in the Sinnoh region. It is preceded by Pokémon: Battle Frontier, the last season of the English dub of the Advanced Generation series, and is 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.
