Pokemon Adventures Diamond and Pearl Platinum Volume Five is a manga based on the Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl video games. The manga was written by Hidenori Kusaka, and the art was done by Satoshi Yamamoto. Viz Media released this manga in North America through its VizKids imprint in 2012. Pokemon Adventures Diamond and Pearl Platinum is rated “A,” which means it is suitable for readers of all ages.
At the beginning of Volume Five, the truth about Dia and Pearl is revealed. Lady is shocked, and then becomes angry with Dia and Pearl with not telling her the truth.
After some thought and contemplation, Platinum realizes that she hadn’t been entirely honest with Dia and Pearl during their travels together, and is willing to forgive them. During her apology, Lady’s real name is finally revealed: Platinum. I nearly groaned when I saw that, and the thought running through my heads was, “I really should have seen that coming.”
After the three main characters patch things up, they learn of Team Galactic’s plan to use the Galactic Bomb to capture the three Legendary Pokemon of the Sinnoh region: Mesprit, Uxie and Azelf. Since there are three Pokemon, they decide to go their separate ways to help the Pokemon, since they know that they don’t have a lot of time until the bomb is detonated.
However, before Dia goes to help his designated Pokemon, he is sent to get some training in order to improve his team of Pokemon. Near the end of the volume, Pearl has his own adventure while he’s on his way to his designated Pokemon. By the end of this volume, none of the three have reached their assigned locations; this guarantees that there’s at least one more volume of this series, if not more, to go.
