Misty (Japanese: カスミ Kasumi) is an aspiring Water Pokémon Master and a former traveling partner of Ash. She is also the Gym Leader of the Cerulean Gym, handing out the Cascade Badge to Trainers who defeat her. She specializes in Water-type Pokémon.


Original series

Baby Misty

A stubborn tomboy, Misty is the youngest of four sisters who live in the Cerulean Gym. In The Water Flowers of Cerulean City, Violet explained that Misty left the Gym with the goal of becoming a great Pokémon Trainer.

Misty carrying her burnt bike

Misty debuted in Pokémon, I Choose You!, fishing in a nearby river on Route 1. As her fishing rod snagged something, she managed to pull out not a Water-type Pokémon, but Ash and his injured Pikachu, who were being chased by a flock of Spearow. After pointing Ash in the direction of the nearest Pokémon Center, the one in Viridian City, he borrowed her bicycle, saying that he would return it someday.

In Pokémon Emergency!, Misty appeared in the Pokémon Center after Ash dropped off his Pikachu, holding her charred bike and demanding a new one right away. She continued following Ash as he headed for Pewter City, telling him in Showdown in Pewter City that she would continue following him until she was paid back for the bike.

Consequently, Misty traveled around the Kanto region, the Orange Archipelago, and the Johto region with Ash. She mentioned several times that the purpose was to get Ash to replace her bicycle. However, Misty often seemed to have forgotten about the bicycle, indicating that her real reason for following along was that she simply wanted to remain with her friends.

They were later joined by Brock (from Showdown in Pewter City to Poké Ball Peril and again from the end of The Rivalry Revival) and Tracey (from The Lost Lapras to The Rivalry Revival). During her travels with Ash, Misty, aside from training to become the best Water Pokémon Trainer, also acted as his coach in many Pokémon battles. Although Misty pulled Brock away by his ear when he approached a woman in Kanto in The Bridge Bike Gang and Lights, Camera, Quack-tion, as well as once in the Orange Archipelago in Poké Ball Peril, she did this far more frequently to Brock while they were in Johto.

In The Water Flowers of Cerulean City, Misty challenged Ash to a Gym battle after her sisters at the Cerulean Gym nearly gave Ash a Cascade Badge without a battle and to prove she was as good a Pokémon Trainer as her sisters. Ash and Misty each defeated one Pokémon, but Team Rocket interrupted the match when they tried to steal the Gym's Water Pokémon. Misty's sisters awarded Ash a Badge when Pikachu saved the Gym with its Thunderbolt. Misty left the Gym to continue her journey as a Pokémon Trainer.

In Tentacool & Tentacruel, while waiting for the next ferry to the mainland, Misty saw a large group of Tentacool and a giant Tentacruel attacking Porta Vista after human activity destroyed their homes. Misty convinced the Tentacool and Tentacruel to stop attacking the port, and the humans would no longer occupy Tentacool and Tentacruel's homes in the reef.

In Hook, Line, and Stinker, Misty competed in the annual Seaking Catching Day. After Misty and Andreas both caught Seaking that weighed 55 kg., Misty and Andreas battled each other in order to break the tie. Misty won the competition after her Poliwhirl defeated Andreas' Poliwrath.

Misty participated in the Whirl Cup alongside Ash from Octillery the Outcast to The Perfect Match!. She defeated Ash in the second round and made it to the best eight of the competition before she narrowly lost to Trinity.

In Gotta Catch Ya Later!, Misty returned to the Viridian City Pokémon Center and learned that her bicycle was repaired by the city's Nurse Joy. Misty was shown to be sad that she no longer had the convenient excuse to travel with Ash — especially when she saw that Ash hadn't learned that and had assumed she followed him because of her bike. In addition, her sisters Daisy, Lily, and Violet, called Misty at this time to tell her they were going on a world tour, and needed her to return to Cerulean and watch the Gym in their absence. However, Misty saw how Ash truly cared for her when he saved her from a trio of Pokémon gangsters. Misty wanted to stay with Ash, but felt it was her responsibility to take over the Gym, which would be shut down if it was left unattended.

Upon the return of her sisters, Misty remained the sole Cerulean Gym Leader. Since their return, only Daisy appears to spend any significant amount of time at the Gym. While working in the Gym, Misty sometimes receives help from Tracey when he is either visiting or running an errand for Professor Oak.

Advanced Generation series

Misty was first mentioned by Ash in Tree's a Crowd.

She reappeared from The Princess and the Togepi to A Togepi Mirage!, where she met up with Ash and Brock again, along with meeting May and Max for the first time. In A Togepi Mirage, her Togepi evolved into a Togetic and helped defend the Togepi Paradise. Towards the end of the episode, Togetic decided to stay with the other Togepi to protect them, sharing one last tearful moment with Misty.

She made a cameo appearance in both Saved by the Beldum and Shocks and Bonds, where she was shown watching Ash competing in the Ever Grande Conference.

She also made three more appearances in this series; from The Scheme Team to A Real Cleffa-Hanger, as well as The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon. She later appeared in flashbacks in Gathering the Gang of Four. She was mentioned by Ash in the English dub of Jirachi: Wish Maker.

It was revealed in Cerulean Blues that Misty feared Gyarados, having climbed into one's mouth as a baby, and that she doubted her own ability to run Cerulean Gym alone. It wasn't until she selflessly protected her Gyarados from a Poison Sting assault that she was not only able to conquer her fears but regain the confidence to run the Gym with a now obedient Gyarados.

Diamond & Pearl series

Misty never physically appeared in the Diamond & Pearl series, but she was mentioned by her friends. Her special lure appeared in Buizel Your Way out of This!, and she appeared in a picture on Brock's memory wall in the side story episode SS025.

Best Wishes series

Misty only appeared in flashbacks in the Best Wishes series. She and Brock made an appearance in The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion! during Ash's flashbacks of his and Charizard's friendship. She reappeared in a fantasy in The Dream Continues!.

Sun & Moon series

Misty reappeared in two episodes of the Sun & Moon series, starting with Alola, Kanto!. Misty and Brock reunited with Ash when he and his classmates arrived at the Kanto airport, then compared Kantonian and Alolan Pokémon with the class at Professor Oak's lab. Later, Misty and the rest of the group worked together to defeat Team Rocket, who Misty was angry to find were still up to their old tactics of stealing Pokémon. Afterwards, the group had a party and learned from Professor Kukui that the class had plans to head to Cerulean City for a Gym battle.

In When Regions Collide!, the group arrived at Cerulean City, where Misty and Brock assisted Professor Kukui's lecture on the mechanics of Gym battles and the Pokémon League. Misty defeated Lana and Mallow in a Multi Battle, but she and her Mega Gyarados lost against Ash and his Pikachu. She and Brock then bade Ash and his classmates farewell and accepted Ash's offer to visit Alola sometime in the future.

Misty also made a cameo appearance in the ending credits of I Choose You!.


Misty showing her fear of Bug Pokémon

Misty is a girl who can be sweet and optimistic at times, but she is best known for how easily she can be angered or frustrated and how loud she can become in response. She is very extreme in most of her moods, and can switch between them quickly. However, as time went on, Misty mellowed and her hyper personality was reduced significantly by the end of the Original series.

She is also picky, sensitive, nosy and grumpy about love. There are many episodes where she is seen getting along with the younger siblings of the family, namely Mikey, Sakura, and Max. This stems from the fact that she understands what it's like to be the youngest because she has three older sisters.

Her goals are not as clear as those of the other main characters, but her main interest is training Water-type Pokémon in aim of becoming Water Pokémon Master, and there are many other things she loves to do, being very confident in her abilities in all aspects of life. Fishing is one of her hobbies, and she even has a special lure which she designed to look like herself. In The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing!, she sent one to Ash as a gift.

The one Pokémon type that Misty cannot stand is the Bug type; she tends to freak out in most cases whenever she encounters a Bug-type Pokémon, which was first demonstrated when she refused to befriend Ash's Caterpie. However, Bug Pokémon are only one of three things Misty strongly dislikes, the other two being carrots and peppers. The only Bug-type Pokémon Misty is not afraid of are the kinds that she deems "cute" or "pretty", like Ledyba and Butterfree, some belonging to her friends, like Tracey's Venonat and Ash's Heracross, or ones that don't look like bugs, such as Pineco.

Misty also tends to get very angry whenever Ash gets their party lost, especially in forests. She usually complains about him not asking for directions, referring to the male stereotype.


Either through the tradition of her family's Gym or merely her love of them, Misty prefers to train Water-type Pokémon. She usually bases her choice of Pokémon to train by looks, preferring Pokémon that she thinks of as "cute" over ones that she thinks are "ugly," but is willing to overcome such differences. Her love of Water Pokémon stems from the fact that they are extremely flexible in battle, meaning that they can easily adapt to the opponent, as she stated in Some Like It Hot. Since becoming a Gym Leader, she has overcome her fear of Gyarados and continues to learn more about caring and battling with Water Pokémon as challengers come to the Cerulean Gym.

This is a listing of Misty's Pokémon. As she is currently residing in the Cerulean Gym, most of her Pokémon are there and are not listed as "on hand."

Misty is a recurring character in The Electric Tale of Pikachu, a manga series based on the Pokémon anime.

Later in the same chapter, when Ash arrives in Cerulean City, he battles her instead of The Sensational Sisters.

Misty disappears from the manga until Ash and Brock bump into her at the Nomads Independence Day festival in The Human Race and the Pokémon Race.

  • Misty is said to be 10 in the anime[1], though in The Electric Tale of Pikachu, she is 12 years old.
  • Not counting temporary Pokémon, Misty is the only female traveling companion of Ash's who has not caught the same Pokémon as another main character.
  • Misty is the first of Ash's friends to challenge a Gym (albeit an unofficial Gym), since she challenged and tied with the unofficial Johto Water Gym Leader in Just Add Water.
  • Misty is the first main character to be seen owning a Generation II Pokémon, that Pokémon being Togepi.
  • Only Misty's Japanese name, meaning baby's breath, references a floral connection shared with her older sisters Daisy, Violet, and Lily. In all other languages, Misty's name references water.
  • Misty is the first victim of the recurring gag in the anime where Ash's Pikachu shocks a main female character's bike or the character herself at the beginning of each series.
  • Misty is the female traveling companion to have appeared in the most amount of episodes, with 282 – Dawn is second with 200, May is third with 197, Iris is fourth with 141, and Serena and Bonnie are last with 140.
    • Misty is also the female companion who has appeared in person in the most series, with three to her name.
  • Out of all of Ash's friends, Misty holds the record of having the most Pokémon on hand at the time of her debut and the largest number of Pokémon with unexplained origins, with three each.
    • Misty also holds the record of having the most Pokémon under her ownership out of all of Ash's friends.
  • Out of all of Ash's friends who have returned to the series, after their departure, Misty is the only one who has had new team additions on her return (not counting evolutions).
  • Both Misty and Jessie were voiced by Rachael Lillis and then switched at to Michele Knotz when the 4Kids dub ended in 2006.
  • Former director and storyboard artist of the Pokémon anime, Masamitsu Hidaka, stated in an interview that Misty will not return as a main character in future seasons, but she will continue to make guest appearances like she has in the past. He compared it to how May came back for the Wallace Cup in the Diamond & Pearl series, but said since Pokémon Contests "aren't really her thing", it would be for something else like a battle.
  • According to Pocket Monsters: The Animation, Misty's parents abandoned their children and the Cerulean Gym due to the harsh regulations for Gym duties, thus forcing her and her sisters to run the Cerulean Gym until she left at 10 years old.
  • Of all of Ash's friends who have returned after their series more than once, Misty is the only one to have changed from her original outfit and go back to using it again. Misty returned to wearing her original series outfit in Alola, Kanto!, after changing into a different outfit from The Princess and the Togepi onward.
