Three years later, in Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, and SoulSilver, Misty remains the Gym Leader of the Cerulean Gym, which can be challenged once the problem at the Kanto Power Plant has been fixed. Initially, she cannot be found in the Gym. Instead, she can be seen at Cerulean Cape on a date with her boyfriend. When the player arrives, her boyfriend is scared away, prompting her to grow angry with the player and refer to them as a pest. Upon noticing their eight JohtoBadges, however, she accepts the player's challenge and returns to the Gym. While she doesn't give out a TM in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, she gives out TM03 (Water Pulse) in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
In HeartGold and SoulSilver, after all 16 Badges have been obtained and Suicune has been captured or defeated, Misty can be found on Route 25 on any day between 4 PM and 6 PM. If spoken to, she will offer her Pokégear number to the player. If she is called on Wednesdaymornings, she will be up for a rematch at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City. After her Pokégear number has been obtained, she will also appear on Route 25 every day between 2 PM and 4 PM. Upon speaking to her, the player can have a photograph taken with her if the first Pokémon in their party is a Water type.
"Hi, you're a new face! Trainers who want to turn pro have to have a policy about Pokémon! What is your approach when you catch Pokémon? My policy is an all-out offensive with Water-typePokémon!"
"Wow! You're too much! All right! You can have the CascadeBadge to show you beat me!"
After being defeated
"The CascadeBadge makes all Pokémon up to L30 obey! That includes even outsiders! There's more, you can now use Cut any time! You can cut down small bushes to open new paths! You can also have my favorite TM!"
"Hi, you're a new face! What's your policy on Pokémon? What is your approach? My policy is an all-out offensive with Water-typePokémon! Misty, the world-famous beauty, is your host! Are you ready, sweetie?"
"I can't believe I lost! All right! You can have the CascadeBadge to show you beat me!"
After being defeated

"Aww! Why did you have to show up and bug us now? Do you know what they call people like you? Pests! You heard me right, pest! ... ...Oh! Those Badges you have... Are they Johto Gym Badges? If you have eight, you must be good. OK, then. Come to [[Cerulean Gym<]]/sc>. I'll be happy to take you on. I'm <sc>Misty, the Gym Leader in Cerulean."
"Hi, you're a new face! Only those Trainers who have a policy about Pokémon can turn pro. What is your approach when you catch and train Pokémon? My policy is an all out offensive with Water-type Pokémon!"
"Wow! You're too much, all right! You can have the CascadeBadge to show that you beat me."
After being defeated
"The CascadeBadge makes all Pokémon up to Lv. 30 obey. That includes even outsiders you got in trades. There's more. You can now use Cut anytime, even out of battle. You can cut down small trees to open new pathways. You can also have my favorite TM."

If you have eight, you must be good. OK, then. Come to Cerulean Gym. I'll be happy to take you on. I'm Misty, the Gym Leader in Cerulean."
"I was expecting you, you pest! You may have a lot of Johto Gym Badges, but you'd better not take me too lightly. My Water-typePokémon are tough!"
"Looks like you're not just someone who gets in the way..."
After sending out last Pokémon
"Hmm... You're pretty good..."
"Looks like this is it..."
After being defeated
"You really are good... I'll admit that you are skilled... Here you go. It's the Cascade Badge."
"Here is another memento from this battle. Take it!"
"It contains the move Water Pulse. It can sometimes confuse your foe. You've managed to defeat Trainers all the way from Johto. I'm sure you have a good use for it."
"Hi... Oh, hi there. What’s happening? Everything’s good with me. I’m really sorry, but I’ve got a lot going on... I’m pretty busy lately... Well, Wednesday mornings I’ve got some free time. Want to try calling then?"
"Hi... Oh, hi there. What’s happening? Everything’s good with me. Oh hi, I’m free today! Let’s battle again, OK?"
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 becoming the greatest Water Pokémon Master.
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 for a couple of days to make them both stronger. At the end of this round she gives Red the Cascade Badge.

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.
This listing is of Misty's Pokémon in the Pokémon Adventures manga.
Starmie is one of Misty's main Pokémon. It was first seen when Misty trained with Red to become stronger so that they could fight against Team Rocket more easily. In the Yellow chapter, it was used to defend Cerulean City from the Elite Four's Ghost-type Pokémon army. 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.
Gyarados was given to Misty after Red recaught him when he was very fierce following Team Rocket's experiments on him. Later, Misty traded him for Red's Krabby when he could not teach any of his Pokémon Surf to get to the Seafoam Islands.
Omanyte was one of the Pokémon given to Yellow along with Brock's Graveler as a parting gift for their training session. Yellow then nicknamed him Omny, and he has since evolved into an Omastar. He has a Docile nature.
Misty successfully caught this Suicune with the help of her Lanturn, as it longed for a Trainer that would help combat the Masked Man. However, it wasn't long until Misty's injuries from the fight with the mastermind forced it to partner with Crystal and leave her.

Misty appeared in a flashback alongside her Starmie in JBA6.

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.
Blastoise is the first Pokémon seen in Misty's possession. She sent it out as Clefairy's opponent. He defeated Blastoise when he sucked all of the water from a nearby river and unleashed all of the river water on it.
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, Satoshi and Pikachu end up improving. As Satoshi 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.
Seel was given to Satoshi as a gift for mastering his swim lessons. This Seel reminded her of a Dewgong that rescued her once when a large wave swept her underwater at the beach. As a result, she wanted to see that Dewgong again.
Misty's Pokémon Cards listed with a blue background are only legal to use in the current Expanded format. Cards listed with a silver background are legal to use in both the current Standard and Expanded formats.
Misty appears as a random trophy wearing her outfit from the anime.
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.
Misty's Japanese Leader title is おてんば人魚The Tomboyish Mermaid.
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!).
