Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai, originally released in Japan as Pocket Monsters Diamond & Pearl the Movie: Dialga vs. Palkia vs. Darkrai (劇場版ポケットモンスター ダイヤモンド&パール ディアルガVSパルキアVSダークライ, Gekijōban Poketto Monsutā Daiyamondo Pāru Diaruga tai Parukia tai Dākurai) is a 2007 Japanese anime film directed by Kunihiko Yuyama as the tenth Pokémon anime film. It was released in Japanese theaters on July 14, 2007. It was later released in United States on February 24, 2008 on Cartoon Network, on November 5, 2008 in Australia and September 29, 2008 in the United Kingdom. Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai aired on Jetix in February 2009. As indicated by the film title, Darkrai, as well as Dialga and Palkia, are the featured Pokémon.

Sarah Brightman performs the movie's theme song, a cover of "Where the Lost Ones Go" titled "Be With You (Itsumo Soba ni)" (ビー・ウィズ・ユー〜いつもそばに〜, Bī Wizu Yū ~Itsumo Soba ni~). The cover also features Chris Thompson. The song was replaced by "I'll Always Remember You" by Kristen Price (who would also sing the theme for the next season), and another song called "Living in the Shadow" followed afterwards.

Unlike other previous Pokémon films, Pokémon: The Rise of Darkrai share plot elements with the next two films making this the first film of what is said is the Diamond & Pearl trilogy, followed by Pokémon: Giratina and the Sky Warrior and ending in Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life.

Synopsis

In the prologue, a scientist named Tonio is reading a diary which belonged to a famous architect named Godey, his great-grandfather, indicating that two Pokémon between their dimension are fighting, and that the battle could lead to chaos. Those written future events are occurring at that same moment as Palkia, who can distort space and Dialga, who rules over time are brawling, which causes the hourglass in Tonio's lab to fall and shatter.
