Pokémon: DP Sinnoh League Victors


In the final episode of the Pokémon: Diamond and Pearl series, Ash, Brock and Dawn's journey in Sinnoh comes to an end. Ash wants to be a Pokémon Master; Brock wants to be a Pokémon Doctor; and Dawn wants to be a Top Coordinator. As they prepare to say goodbye, Piplup, realizing that everyone is going their separate ways, runs away in tears. The gang finds Piplup and do one last battle against Team Rocket. Later at Twinleaf Town ferry port, Dawn thanks Ash and Brock for everything and wishes them luck on their journeys, while Ash and Brock wish her the same. Ash and Dawn exchange one final high five before boarding the ship with Brock. Dawn and Piplup look away, saddened, realizing they won't see them again. Ash calls out to them "No need to worry! We'll meet again someday!" Dawn and Piplup run down the dock and wave goodbye to Ash, Pikachu, and Brock before the boat leaves out of sight.

When Ash and Brock return to Kanto, they cross the familiar crossroads to their hometowns. Ash and Brock shake hands one last time; Ash wishes Brock good luck in Pokémon Doctor's School, and Brock wishes him luck in the Unova region. The two part ways for good. Ash sadly walks home, comptemplating his previous journeys with Misty, May, Max, Dawn, Tracey, and Brock. Before long, he arrives in Pallet Town and cheers up, ready to start his life anew.
