The 170th and 171st episodes of Pocket Monsters: Diamond & Pearl were recently revealed by Newtype. The episode 「四天王キクノ！カバルドンＶＳドダイトス！！」 Kikuno of the Four Heavenly Kings! Kabarudon VS Dodaitose!! and 「トゲキッス舞う！王女さまのポケモンコンテスト！！」 Togekiss Dance! The Princess Pokémon Contest!! will air as a one-hour special on April 1 on TV Tokyo.
Kikuno, a member of the Four Heavenly Kings and a Trainer of Ground-type Pokémon, will debut in the 170th episode, along with her Kabarudon. Satoshi challenges her to a battle with his newly evolved Dodaitose, another Ground-type Pokémon. Kikuno is the last of the Four Heavenly Kings of Shin'ō to appear in the anime, similarly to speculated relative Kikuko of Kanto's Four Heavenly Kings. The second part of one-hour special will feature Togekiss known as the "Princess of Pokémon Contests." It is hinted in the opening The Greatest - Everyday! that Hikari will capture this Pokémon.
