Misty (Japanese: カスミ Kasumi) is a Gym Leader of Cerulean City's Gym, known officially as the Cerulean Gym. She hands out the Cascade Badge to Trainers who defeat her. She specializes in Water-type Pokémon.

Contents

In the games

Misty's title is "The Tomboyish Mermaid." Her strategy is an all-out attack with Water-type Pokémon.

Misty is constantly looking for ways to improve her technique. A swimmer herself, she trains at the Seafoam Islands. As Misty becomes a stronger Trainer, she becomes the only one in her town who can defeat the Trainers at Cerulean's cape.

It is said that Misty has high hopes for the north cape, a romantic date spot. In later years, she is seen there with an unidentified boyfriend. She dislikes pests who bother her when she's on a date.

Misty worships Lorelei of the Elite Four. It's Misty's dream to travel one day. She wishes to meet many strong Trainers, such as Ethan/Kris/Lyra from Johto who defeats her in battle.

In addition to the Cascade Badge, Misty gives out TM11 (BubbleBeam) in Green, Red, Blue, and Yellow. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, she gives out TM03 (Water Pulse). In Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal, she doesn't give out a TM, but in its remakes HeartGold and SoulSilver she gives out TM03 (Water Pulse) again.

In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player wants to rebattle her, the player must go to Route 25 between 4:00 PM and 6:00 PM on any day, after Suicune is captured or defeated. She can be found right at the end of Cerulean Cape, staring out into sea. Then, on Wednesday mornings, she can be called to arrange a rematch.

In the main series

Misty in the anime
Main article: Misty (anime)

Misty is a friend and former traveling partner of the anime's main character, Ash Ketchum. After he stole her bike and proceeded to accidentally destroy it in Pokémon - I Choose You!, Misty followed him around the Kanto region, Orange Archipelago, and Johto region, using the time she spent with him to further her goal of being the greatest Water Pokémon Trainer.

At the end of the original series, Misty's bike was returned and repaired by the Nurse Joy of Viridian City, and as her sisters were leaving on a world tour, Misty stayed at the Cerulean Gym as its leader in order to keep it open.

Despite this drawback, she still visits Ash from time to time, meeting up with him during the Mirage Kingdom and Battle Frontier arcs of the Advanced Generation series.

Misty, along with Ash and Brock, make cameo appearances in bonus chapters of the Magical Pokémon Journey manga.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Misty with her Starmie and Brock with his Geodude

Misty debuts in the Red, Green & Blue chapter in Gyarados Splashes In! when Red saves her from her enraged Gyarados, which has been experimented on by Team Rocket. After they recapture the Pokémon, Red and Misty join forces to defeat Team Rocket and find the Moon Stone at Mt. Moon. During the battle, Misty is knocked out by a Team Rocket Grunt's Rhydon.

As is shown in Suddenly Starmie, she lives in a large mansion and has a horde of maids that look after her. Here she defeats Red in the Cerulean Gym and trains with him a couple of days to make them both stronger. At the end of this round she gives Red the Cascade Badge.

Misty dressed up

Later, Red wants to teach his Pokémon Surf, but the HM he tries to acquire is destroyed in a battle with a wild Dragonite. Misty saves Red from drowning; he at first, mistakes her for a mermaid. As Red's one hope of teaching his Pokémon Surf has been utterly demolished, Misty trades Red her Gyarados for his Krabby. They have each other's Pokémon in their respective parties to this day.

She is then seen in the Yellow chapter talking with Professor Oak about Red's disappearance and worries about him, especially after hearing that Oak gave Red's Pokédex and Pika to Yellow, who she considered a random stranger. She was then seen teaming up with the other 'good' Gym Leaders of Kanto to thwart Super Nerd Miles, then possessed by Agatha's Gastly and attempting to retrieve Pika. After the event, she meets Yellow for the first time and gives her an Omanyte. She was also seen being stalled by Agatha, who forced Cerulean under attack by a group of Gastly and Haunter. They finally retrieve what they were really after all along, her Gym Badge. Misty had her Starmie go to Cerise Island and give the message to the others.

Unlike in the anime, Misty has changed her hairstyle later on to match the one worn by her in Pokémon Gold and Silver. In the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, during the second Team Rocket crisis, Suicune lured Misty into a battle underneath Tohjo Falls and later offered to be her partner. The recruitment somehow gave her strength and confidence, as she was able to easily defeat Whitney in her exhibition match at the Indigo Plateau. However, she later becomes injured in the battle with the Masked Man, and Suicune goes on to take Crystal as its second partner for the battle's climax.

Misty seems to have a crush on Red. It is however, considered distinct from Misty's suspected crush on Ash in the anime, and in other manga. During the second Team Rocket crisis, Erika observes that Misty is planning on making some sort of confession of romantic feelings to Red. It is unlikely, however, that she ever managed to carry out this plan.

Starmie was also used in the Gym Leader tournament in the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, where it easily defeated Whitney's Mil Mil. It can use an ancient star language to write messages in mid air, which comes in handy when Misty needs to send a message across a long distance or when a Pokémon needs to tell Misty something.

Misty's Suicune

Debut Querulous Qwilfish

In the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga

Misty in the Pokémon Pocket Monsters manga
Misty in the Pokémon Ruby-Sapphire manga

The slapstick manga, Pokémon Pocket Monsters, depicts Misty differently than in other manga. Red, the protagonist of the series, is seeking a Moon Stone along with his Pikachu and his Clefairy. When they meet Misty, Clefairy notices that she is wearing a Moon Stone as a necklace. She declares that they battle her if they wish to have it. While the Clefairy is initially pumped up to battle, he quickly changes his mind when he sees that his opponent is a massive Blastoise. After a while, the battle is won when Clefairy sucks up all the water in a nearby river and releases the water onto Misty's Pokémon, sending it flying into the sky. Just when Misty is about to reward Red's group with the prize they sought, it gets stolen by someone else.

She is seen again when Red participates in the No. 1 Pokémon contest acting as a judge and when he went to a swimming pool.

Misty lent him her Togepi while in the Pokémon League as Red needed extra support in order to defeat Green.

Misty reappears in Clefairy, Form Teacher Of Class 1P!! in a form of a cameo where she is seen wearing her outfit from Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen.

Pokémon

Debut The Pokémon Banana League (Part 2)

In the Pokémon Zensho manga

When Satoshi arrives at the Cerulean Gym, he is given a pair of swimming trunks as that is all that is allowed inside the pool arena. Misty appears soon after, prompting a blush from him. Soon after, during the battle, he sends out his Charmander, which is afraid of going near the water since the flame on its tail might go out. His Pikachu is sent next, but having no idea of what to do around the water, it falls in. As he attempts to save his Pokémon, Satoshi gets a cramp and nearly drowns, but Misty manages to rescue him.

Later on, as Satoshi and Pikachu dry themselves off, Misty suggests that she teach them how to properly move around in the water, so they can stand a better chance next time. He trains along with Pikachu, who floats on a life saver. Misty attempts to take the device away from the mouse, only to see that it is clinging to it. Eventually, as Satoshi and Pikachu end up improving. As he sits around with a Seel, Misty relays a story over how a Dewgong rescued her once when a large wave swept her underwater at the beach. Due to that experience, she feels gratitude toward the Pokémon.

After Satoshi thwarts an attack by a Team Rocket Grunt, she awards him with the Cascade Badge and her Seel, telling him that she hopes to meet the Dewgong that rescued her someday.

In the TFG

Misty appears as a rare Trainer figure in the launch set, Next Quest, of the Pokémon Trading Figure Game.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Misty appears as a random trophy wearing her outfit from the anime.

Trophy information

Misty's the gym leader of Cerulean City and a real tomboy. She loves swimming and all things aquatic, so she makes a point of collecting Starmie, Staryu, and other Water-type Pokémon. This is common among gym leaders: typically, the Pokémon kept by Trainers tend to reflect that person's personality and preferences.

Trivia

  • Her Japanese Leader title is おてんば人魚 The Tomboyish Mermaid.
  • Misty is the only female Water-type specialist.
  • Misty is the only Gym Leader to have appeared in Super Smash Bros. Melee, albeit as a trophy.
  • In Pokémon Yellow, Misty calls Red a "sweetie" right before the battle, in the sentence "Are you ready, sweetie?". In the Japanese version, she uses her anime counterpart's catchphrase instead (いくわよ!マーイステディ! Go! My Steady!).
