Pocket Monsters: Diamond & Pearl, the televsion anime series based on the previous generation of Pokémon games in Japan, will return in a two-part special which will air on February 3. The "Hikari - Aratanaru Tabidachi!" and "Nibi Gym - Shijō Saidai no Kiki!" episodes will depict the stories of Hikari (Dawn in the English adaptation) and Takeshi (Brock) after their journey with Satoshi (Ash) ended.
Even though Pokemon: DP Sinnoh League Victors — the last main story arc of Diamond & Pearl in English — is still running in the United States, the Diamond & Pearl anime already ended in Japan last September. Pocket Monsters: Best Wishes! took its place that same month to coincide with the Fall debut of the Pocket Monsters: Black and Pocket Monsters: White games in Japan.
