Followed by Pokémon: DP Galactic Battles

Pokémon: DP Battle Dimension is the eleventh season of the dubbed version of the Pokémon anime. It is the second season of Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl. It follows Ash as he continues gathering Badges in Sinnoh, and Dawn as she continues gathering Ribbons.

It originally aired in the United States as part of the 2008-2009 Cartoon Network Saturday morning lineup. It began on April 12, 2008 with the dub premiere Tears for Fears!, and concluded on May 2, 2009 with Sleepless In Pre-Battle!. This season began a new trend, similar to that in Japan where one episode is aired most weeks; there was no break between this season and the next one.

It also began airing on digital TV's Jetix in the United Kingdom in late 2008; on UK Freeview, on January 5, 2009, simultaneously on CITV and ITV4; and on YTV in Canada owned by Corus Entertainment on March 2, 2009.

It is preceded by Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl and succeeded by Pokémon: DP Galactic Battles.



It’s looking good for Ash as he works on his next three Gym Badges, but not so good for Dawn, coming off a pair of Contest defeats. Both will do what they can to become better Trainers, from entering the Wallace Cup competition to attending Professor Rowan’s Pokémon Summer Academy. Hopefully, the new tactics they pick up will give them the tools they need to succeed against the latest plot by Pokémon Hunter J—as well as the emerging threat of Team Galactic!
