Cartoon Network's Web site today revealed the English names of Hikari (Dawn) and Shinji (Paul). The name of the character of the day from DP004 was revealed to be Nando.

Some fans were surprised that Dawn's name broke the assumed pattern of main female character names beginning with M and ending with Y (as with Misty and May).

The first five episode titles of the English-language Diamond and Pearl series were announced.

  • DP001: Following a Maiden Voyage!
  • DP002: Two Degrees of Separation!
  • DP003: When Pokémon Worlds Collide!
  • DP004: Dawn of a New Era!!
  • DP005: Gettin' Twiggy With It!

These episodes bring Cartoon Network to the end of Pokémon's ninth season. Season 10 has yet to be announced, but the series' page on the cable channel's Web site has been converted to a Diamond and Pearl theme.
