Last two episodes of Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl to air in September
Recently, the September issue of the magazine Newtype revealed the titles for the last two episodes of Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl,「ポケモンドクター・タケシ！」 Pokémon Doctor - Takeshi! & 「思い出はパール！友情はダイヤモンド!!」 Memories are Pearls! Friendship is Diamond!! are set to air on 2nd and 9th September respectively.
Given the recent character scans and information about the next anime series, the 190th episode of the series may focus on Takeshi as he probably decides his future; whether to travel with Satoshi or to follow a different path. No additional information is available yet.
The Diamond & Pearl anime series debuted on September 28, 2006 and it will end on September 9, 2010, almost completely four years later, with its 191st episode. This series fails to be the longest so far, second only to Pocket Monsters Advanced Generation, the previous series, by only one episode. The next series, Pocket Monsters Best Wishes!, will focus on Satoshi's journey to the Isshu region, where he will meet new characters such as Iris, her Kibago, Dento and Dr. Araragi.
