'''StromfrontStormfront''' is the seventh Diamond & Pearl Series expansion, originating from Japan as the sixth DP Era expansion, '''Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky'''. The 38th English expansion overall, it was released on November 5, 2008 with 106 total cards. The Japanese expansion was made available July 10, 2008, but only contained 92 cards. The additional cards in the English expansion originated from the {{TCG|Giratina vs Dialga Deck Kit}}, which was released on the same day in Japan and is seen as a complement to the main expansion.
The Japanese release was in commemoration of the eleventh movie ''[[M11|Giratina and the Sky's Bouquet: Shaymin]]'', which debuted in theaters a little more than a week later. Intense Fight in the Destroyed Sky features the debut of {{p|Shaymin}} in the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game]]; however, as the movie wasn't going to be released until about seven months later in the United States, all of the movie related [[Legendary Pokémon]]—Shaymin, {{p|Giratina}}, and {{p|Dialga}}—were saved for the English {{TCG|Platinum}} expansion, which was released within the same week as the movie. Thus, the English release was forced to pick up new focuses based on the card that were left over.
