Finally, the long wait for the Diamond and Pearl chapter in PokeSpecial is over! I was browsing NetKun, and saw that, in addition to the Emerald and FireRed&LeafGreen Sagas, Diamond&Pearl is also being released monthly. I expect it'll be released in Volumes after the other two Sagas are done. Also, if you look at the front page of NetKun/Pockemon, you'll see that the Emerald's Saga's pic has been updated. Now, both Ruby and Sapphire stand beside Emerald, and they have new clothes yet again! Ruby has red, Sapphire has blue! Awesome! Also, the three heroes from Diamond and Pearl are added, too.


The hero is called Diamond and the male rival is called Pearl. I don't think the heroine's name is mentioned, but I probably wouldn't be able to read it, anyways. And, as I'm sure you've noticed from the front page; Diamond chose Naetoru (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/387.shtml), the Grass Starter, Pearl chose Hikozaru (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/390.shtml), the Fire Starter, and the girl chose Pochama (http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-dp/393.shtml), the Water Starter.


The girl looks as though she'll be the serious member of the group. Diamond and Pearl are, err...scary. XD

I knew PS shippers were foolish to assume the girl would be called Pearl.
Ruby is a girl name. Still what will the girl be called? For the first time there is a male rival, female rival when there are only 2 games out.

While as awesome as the manga looks (I probably wouldn't be able to get my hands on it though -_-), I was always under the impression that the Girl (Hikari) was named Pearl.

Hmmm. Cause there is the Pearl! A Hikari Fan Club (http://www.theud.com/pokecommunity/showthread.php?t=72424).

They should rename it. Also there is a poll for your favourite character on the official site just click on the Pokeball on the right. Red, Yellow and Ruby are 1st,2nd and 3rd. Saphire and Green(girl) are 4th and 5th, you can see the top 100 on the official site. Emerald is the least popular character named after a game.

The wait is over indeed. At least they're being consistent with handing their female protagonists strong characteristics, since I'm sure this girl will do something important as they've done with Blue, Crystal, etc. But more importantly, I'm most curious how Team Galaxy will be handled. I always enjoyed Special for their respectful treatments of the criminal orgs, and this time will be like no other. Awesome.

Edit: Imagine the possibilities with another main female character now: Mars in the arc. It's almost shocking (especially given their conversions of the Boss characters).

I'm just repeating what I read. The two boys say; "Paaru ando Diyamondo deesu" in this (http://netkun.com/pockemon/story/0611/highlight_0611_1.gif) pic, so I'm under the impression that they're their real names.

Hmm...A D/P manga, that looks awesome :D

But I'm dissapointed...Pearl the rival ?? T_T xD

BTW...Yesterday looking in Bulbapedia I accidentaly found the name of the 3rd character. Is Berlitz.

You can`t trust Bulbapeida

November 10th, 2006, 03:30 PM
They just said that it was a fan name until the actual name is revealed (or something like that).

It wasn't meant to be an accurate name.

But she is so cool anyway >.<

November 10th, 2006, 03:33 PM
It is REALLY annoying, just call her Hikari.

November 10th, 2006, 03:54 PM
But, while Hikari is her only confirmed name, it is for the anime, not the manga.

November 10th, 2006, 07:23 PM
But it`s easier to remember, and it`s better than a fan name.

November 11th, 2006, 11:39 AM
All though good pictures...I cant beleive the girl isnt pearl.

November 17th, 2006, 10:39 PM
So is there any confirmation of the Girl's name?

Yeah I really wanna know to!

You can`t trust Bulbapeida

Bulbapedia has yet to show me innaccurate information....
Berlitz (Japanese: ベルリッツ) the female main character for the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl story arc of Pokémon Special. As of now she is only known by her family name, although her given name will undoubtedly match the title of the third Generation IV game.

Learn to read everyone.... >_>

November 25th, 2006, 05:30 AM
Aha, so that's where Berlitz came from.

Well correct as you are Paperfairy, that's only her family name. I want to know her actual name.

So I guess I'll have to wait.

November 25th, 2006, 02:50 PM

Anybody who signs up can edit it, anyway just call her either Hikari or the girl.
Also I don`t think Berlitz is her family name, it dosen`t give its sources.
And anyway I trust serebii.net more than Bulbapedia.
And so far no name just `The lady`
Also paperfairy weren`t you on the forums?

November 25th, 2006, 03:03 PM

I don't know why you would trust Serebii.net more than Bulbapedia - they are both fansites.

November 25th, 2006, 03:09 PM
But Bulbapedia can be edited by anyone , Serebii isn`t anyway Coronis hasn`t been wrong and it`s already been a few years.

December 5th, 2006, 11:28 AM
The D/P Manga sounds cool. I want to read it.

December 21st, 2006, 12:45 AM
I was wondering when there was gonna be any DP manga info, looks like i finally got some. :D

~*!*~Tatsujin Gosuto~*!*~
December 24th, 2006, 02:05 PM
its about time for some info to come out, now I'm looking forward to seeing it in action, too bad I can't read Kanji

:t354:~*!*~Queen Boo~*!*~

do they have this manga in english???

Yes, but you have to order it from Singapore. The english version stopped at the end of the Yellow arc.

I've been waiting for this news. It's no surprise that Pearl isn't the girls name, but is his rival's. I'm so glad they finally revealed that.

January 3rd, 2007, 07:51 AM
uuuh.....i thougt the girls name is daiya and the hero is paaru....O___o

Mr. Dragonite
January 3rd, 2007, 12:00 PM
You were wrong then. There's no chance that the boy should be named after Pearl Version, because the main heroes in every manga have never been named after the secondary game, always the first game. And their rivals, of course, were named after the secondary games, such as Blue, Silver, Sapphire, etc, etc......

But I was kinda hoping that the girl's name would be Pearl, cause it fits her! That's right, it fits her completely! But it's still okay, my thought that only the girl should choose the water penguin turned out to be correct. She would look horrible with Hikozaru, although Hikozaru is a pretty good Pokemon. It does not fit a pretty girl like her, however. The pretty girl always chooses the cutest Pokemon. And it should always stay like that.

And, yes, the girl's actual name is Hikari. It's not Pearl or anything else. Like, the girl in RSE is not called Sapphire in the games, she is called May. Although we're talking about the manga, I don't think it's wrong or stupid to go by calling her Hikari. And the stuff about her family name being Berlitz is completely false.

looks cool. most likely is :D.
