Misty's Gyarados (Japanese: カスミのギャラドス Kasumi's Gyarados) was the tenth Pokémon Misty used; she adopted it in the Kanto region after she returned home in Cerulean Blues.

History

Misty and Gyarados

Taking over the Cerulean Gym wasn't easy for Misty. Not only were there rumors of PIA inspectors arriving, but an angry Gyarados that recently evolved from one of the Cerulean Gym's Magikarp was causing chaos. Misty tried many attempts to stop it but had to resort to locking it in a cage for a while. However, when the Invincible Pokémon Brothers got their Tentacruel to attack it with Poison Sting, Misty took the attack for Gyarados and earned its trust. Calmed, it finally allowed her to return it to its Poké Ball.

The use of Gyarados is significant as Misty had been afraid of the species up until this point. This came from a traumatic event in her childhood when she had crawled into the mouth of a sleeping Gyarados and was almost swallowed. Getting it to earn her trust also led to her passing the inspection and earning Gym Leader status again.

Gyarados is officially a Gym Pokémon, and is thus not solely in Misty's custody. However, she has been seen using it the most, such as A Togepi Mirage!, when Misty visited Ash in Hoenn, she used Gyarados to defeat Colonel Hansen's Shedinja with Flamethrower. It also appeared briefly in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, where Misty used it to battle against Dr. Yung's Mirage Mewtwo, which, however, was way too strong for the Atrocious Pokémon.

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

Misty's Gyarados scaring Ash

Misty also has a Gyarados in the manga counterpart to the anime, but, unlike in the anime, it was the first Pokémon she ever caught. She trained it carefully until it evolved, due to this, it's extremely loyal to its Trainer.

Gyarados appeared in Play Misty For Me when Ash challenged the Cerulean Gym. At first Ash tried to send Pikachu to battle it, but the Electric Mouse was too scared of the scary Atrocious Pokémon. When tried to use his Fearow, it turned out to be sleeping. Next Ash tried to use Pidgeotto, but it wasn't inside of its Poké Ball, having only left behind a note to explain its absense. Ash's only choice left was Metapod, which could nothing but use Harden. For a moment, it looked like Ash had lost, but then his Metapod evolved into Butterfree. Seeing his chance, Ash had Butterfree to use Sleep Powder on Gyarados, putting the huge Pokémon into sleep.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Gyara
Gyara attacking Misty

Misty's Gyarados, who was nicknamed Gyara, first appeared in Gyarados Splashes In!. It was stolen and used for experiments by Team Rocket, causing it to go berserk and attack Misty. Then Red appeared, recaptured Gyarados and returned it to her. After that, in You know... Articuno!, Red tried to get the HM Surf but he couldn't, so, Misty offered to trade Gyara with Red's Krabby, because Gyrara already knew that move. With Gyara he could reach Cinnabar Island.

Gyara seems to have a cheerful personality, as after it was caught by Red, it was constantly singing and moving. The other Pokémon seem to be afraid of it after it does this.
