Japan's logo for Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl

This is a list of episodes in Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl, aired in Japan as Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl (ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール, Poketto Monsutā Daiyamondo to Pāru), the tenth season of the Pokémon animated series, covering the continuing adventures of series protagonist Ash Ketchum as he travels to Sinnoh and meets new friends along with his old friend Brock and a new trainer named Dawn.


The division between seasons of Pokémon is based on the English version openings of each episode, and may not reflect the actual production season. The English episode numbers are based on their first airing in the United States either in syndication on Cartoon Network, or on the WB Television Network. Other English-speaking nations largely followed either this order or the Japanese order. Subsequent airings of the English version follow the original Japanese order, except in the case of episodes which are no longer shown in English. The series began regularly airing in the United States on June 4, 2007.

The series began airing first-run episodes in Japan on September 28, 2006 and is still currently airing. The first three episodes of the tenth season were broadcast in the United States as a special on April 20, 2007 back-to-back in the same format as the original Japanese airing. The fifty-first and final episode of season ten,[1] "Smells Like Team Spirit", first-ran on Cartoon Network on February 1, 2008.[1]
