    Wow, this is the first episode of the newest series of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, and it mainly focues on Dawn who has just became 10 and wants to start her journey to take part in contests like her mother but then she has to get back Chimchar and Piplup after they had started fighting and had escaped Professer Rowan's lab.....



    This is a really good episode to watch, with Dawn finding the escaped Pokemon and finally choosing Piplup as her starter. This episode is very funny and everything! A good start for the series. I give a rating of 8.0 to 9.0!!moreless
  • Dawn is introduced

    9.1
    This is a great way to start off the diamond and pearl series. It introduces Dawn, a energetic girl who seems a little too sure of herself sometimes. The way Dawn and piplup met remind me of the time Ash and pikacu met because the pokemon didn't like it's trainer and likes the trainer after the trainer protects it from danger. It was also pretty funny to see turtwig completely oblivious to all the chaos going on around it and chimchar's disappointment that Dawn didn't pick it as her starter pokemon. I think Dawn is a pretty cool character and a gladly welcome her to the pokemon show.moreless
  • This episode is about Dawn a new Pokemon trainer who is about to step into the world of Pokemon. Dawn rushes to Prof. Rowan's Lab to recieve her first Pokemon. But two of the Starters get in a fued. Dawn saves them and recieves her starter, Piplup.moreless

    This episode was the one of the best I've seen. Instead of focusing on the starter trainer and Ash (mostly Ash) it focused on The Starter Trainer, Dawn. I thought that she would just go to get her Pokemon , meet Ash, stop Team Rocket using her starter and then meet up with Brock in the future. But it didn't go that way, it seemed so cool the way Bide worked (I sound like Dawn now) and how how much Whirlwind (by Staraptor) is so much different in the anime than in the game. The Ariados attack was also cool to see. I still wondered what happened to Pikachu at the end?moreless
  • This was a good episode.

    The new sneek peek at Diamond and Pearl was like a curveball. This episode did not focus on Ash. Instead it primarily focuses on the new trainer Dawn. (I liked her Japanese name better. Yes I have watched and understood the episodes.) The episode was a good start to the tenth season and I didn't mind the voice acting. There is of course the bicycle they always use. (I have a startling feeling Pikachu will fry this one.) Team Rocket of course are and have been overused for nine seasons. This is really the only reason I give it a nine. However, this stands as a good way to start Diamond and Pearl. (Oh and by the way I hate this opening theme song as well.)moreless
