The Diamond and Pearl Series is the third series of the Pokémon anime series. Following his completion of the Battle Frontier, Ash decides to begin his new journey in the Sinnoh region. As with past regions, Ash wants to earn eight Gym Badges in order to compete in the Sinnoh League. Brock returns alongside Ash along the way. They both eventually meet Dawn, who wants to compete in Pokemon Contests and become a Top Pokemon Coordinator, following her mother's(Johanna) footsteps. She decides to join along Ash and Brock and participate in Pokemon Contests and make it to the Sinnoh Grand Festival.

Continuing the trend of the antagonists Team Rocket, this series also introduces a new one called Team Galactic, who Ash, Dawn, and Brock successfully stopped from using Dialga and Palkia from ruling the world.

Dawn managed to collect five Contest Ribbons and compete in the Grand Festival. She finished the competition as the runner up, losing to her rival Zoey in the final round. Ash competed in the Sinnoh League's Lily of the Valley Conference and managed to make it into the Top 4, losing to a trainer with a powerful Darkrai and Latios.

Near the end of the Diamond and Pearl Series, Dawn decides to remain in Sinnoh, Brock decides to work on becoming a Pokemon Doctor and head back to Pewter City, and Ash wants to continue pursuing his goal on becoming a Pokemon Master and head back to Pallet Town. The group arrived at the port and Dawn says her goodbyes to Ash and Brock, as the two are about to head on their boat that's bound for Kanto. When Ash and Brock reach Kanto, they reach a fork in the road once again, leading to Pallet Town and Pewter City. They say their goodbyes a final time, as they both know that they'll no longer be traveling together. Finally, Ash and Pikachu arrive into Pallet Town, concluding the DP series and leading into the Best Wishes Series.

The American dub of the Diamond and Pearl series is split into 4 seasons.
