DP191: 思い出はパール!友情はダイヤモンド!!
DP191: Memories are Pearl! Friends are Diamond!

Airdate: 9th of September

I don't know about anybody else, but this is probably the most touching title from this show yet. Following Ash's adventure through Sinnoh with Dawn and Brock brings back a lot of memories from the past four years. Now, it's coming to an end only for Ash to start a new again.

    Wow, this episode will definitely be emotional. Just by reading the title, I feel kinda weak in the stomach. I don't do goodbyes well.

    After each region comes to an end, it's always kinda sad but it's nice to see it's moving along but with Brock leaving, it may feel like a different show. Who knows.

      There going to do so much in one episode, Dawn leaving while Ash heads off to another region? Normally, they'd have three episodes ending the series like what happened in Kanto or AG I think. They'd have, an episode to send off the characters an episode that has Ash leave for a new region. But it seems like they just want to do all in one epiosode this time. Any who, I have a feeling I'll get a little teary with Ash and Dawn's good-bye, they were such good friends. I hope we get flashbacks and one last high five between them. I wonder if Dawn will care about Brock leaving? She didn't even say a word to him the entire region

      lol. Yes she did. This needed to be two episodes at least. Stupid writers. Maybe it'll be a 2 parter :/

      I doubt it though

      They did it before! With the last episode of battle frontier, Ash and may said their goodbyes and then he wents to pallet town, battled Gary, losses and gary tells him about sinnoh so ash heads of there! The same was with the last ep of kanto saying goodbyes to brock and misty (brock came back anyways though :D)

      This is probs gonna be a sad/happy episode... knowing me I might tear up a bit XD I'll miss Dawn... I like the title though... it goes with the diamond and pearl thing!

      If TPCi skips this episode like they do to flashback episodes, I'm going to rape them in their corporate ass.

      Ermm... K then XD I can smell Pearlshippers getting turned on just from the title and from what the title before that indicates. Soo... First statement is justified.

      I'm just hoping Serebii's right about him taking Gible along with him!

      I hope he evolves it through to Garchomp and uses it tons, rather than just trading it away/leaving it un-evolved/both.

      I also hope Brock does go.....and if he comes back, Ash's at least got 4 badges before that happens...apparently Iris is a wild-child, she should be able to cook!

            This.

            I'm really going to miss Dawn, she's been great. Brock also... to an extent. But I'm happy that he's becoming a Doctor, what a great ending :cer_nod:

            I dont like him takling more than pikachu, I wish he'd leave Pikachu and take Gible. I want a FRESH TEAM. No Pokemon that have any real screen time. That wa, Gible doesnt count

              I could see Ash taking Gible. Than again, him and Buziel have yet to evolve and Buziel has been here longer than Gible. Which one do I want to evolve more? Gible was caught too late and has had less battles so...

              GFA Name the few moments Dawn and Brock interacted? I can't freakin name any other than gym battles when they were sitting on the sidesXD

                ^ They had little interaction compared to Misty & Brock and May & Brock. It was a flaw in the series in my opinion.

                  Well didn't Cynthia impress him? Maybe he wants Gible to evolve? Or maybe he wants a Gible and beat evolved pokemon with it...

                      Ive been watching this region since the start actually since the start of kanto and might i just add i will be a bit emotional knowing that DP is over. but also excitement knowing that best wishes will be taking over.

                      I think the title is really nice as well

                      Before everything, I expected Ash to carry Gible along with him to Isshu since it never got that much screen time and came in the show late. Looking at Pokémon though, it seems they want this generation to be all new. With that, I find it unlikely for Gible to tag a long now. If it does came back though, it'll be for a sub-arc like when Phanphy came back for the Battle Frontier, earned its screen time it missed out on before, and then evolved.

                      As for Brock leaving, I think he might go in the episode prior to this one. It seems to center much attention on him and would be the perfect time for his departure. It'll be sad to see him go after all these years, regardless of the fact that he barely did anything. For his finale though, (SPPf made me like this idea, and the next one after) I could imagine the developers putting in this song for when he leaves, like they did the first time.

                      For Dawn, I see her leaving in this episode here. It seems to signify her leaving well with the title and for the closure of the DP Saga. For her song, I feel this would be the right choice for when Ash and her split.

                      ...Wow, that's just all sad right there. D:

                          Don't forget that Ash never evolves his main water-type. However, I think this trend will be broken if he gets Wotter. If Ash does get Wotter and take Buizel he'll have two Water-type otters. :O

                            The episode summaries are out on Bulbagarden forums, it shows a picture of Dawn and Ash high fiving, I assume its for this episode. I'm just glad will get one last high five, I love there high fives.

                              Ah! The time is close for a bye-bye to Sinnoh. The title is really touching and emotional. :'( I don't know but I always feel sad when one season comes to an end.
                              But yeah, there a brand new Isshu is region awaiting Ash!

                                Time for a new start, eh? Its sad to see Brock leave after all these years, but after the writers flanderised him so much...

                                ...For some reason the end of this series makes me feel old. Anyone else getting the same vibe?

                                I like how they're putting it all into one episode - It's a sign that they may be honest about it moving along a lot faster in the new series.....

                                I'm actually glad Brock's going. He's been done to death. Although I want a cameo, with his newly-evolved Toxicroak, Blissey (god, if he found an Oval Stone, Happiny should by all rights go up 2 stages instantly, because he's so nice to all pokemon).
