What's the story?

POKÉMON: DIAMOND AND PEARL: BATTLE DIMENSION is the 11th television season of the popular Pokémon franchise. As they travel through the Pokémon land of Sinnoh, trainer Ash continues to win badges, while novice trainer Dawn struggles to win ribbons. They attend Professor Rowan’s Pokémon Summer Academy to come up with new battle strategies, and to develop the necessary tools to beat their foes, including Pokémon Hunter J, Gardenia, and members of Team Rocket. Throughout it all, they must look out for the evil Team Galactic.

Is it any good?

The 2nd installment of the Pokémon: Diamond And Pearl  series follows the main characters while they work hard to win battles and try to make appropriate choices to honor the Pokémon world. And as is the tradition, it’s their loyal Pokémon, including Pikachu, Chimchar, and Piplup who fight the battles for them.  

The overall narrative flows easily through the episodes as the trainers meet long time friends and face old and new rivals. They also discover lots of evolving Pokémon throughout their adventures. If you’re a Pokémon fan, no doubt that you will be entertained by what you find in Battle Dimension.
