Hi! You're a new face! What's your policy on Pokémon? What's your approach? My policy for battle is... an all-out offensive with Water-type Pokémon! Misty, the world-famous beauty, is your host! My sweet Pokémon are ready! Are you?

–Misty, Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

Misty is a character making her debut in Pokémon Red and Green Version. Misty is the Gym Leader of the Cerulean City Gym and specializes in Water-type Pokémon. She gives the Cascade Badge to trainers that defeat her. She also goes by the title The Tomboyish Mermaid.

Appearance

Misty is a slender girl with a fit build and spiky hair. Unlike most other characters, her appearance has a tendency to fluctuate.

Red and Blue

Misty has blonde hair and light skin. She wears a strapless two-piece blue swimsuit (with the bottoms being shorts) that leaves her arms, legs, midriffs, and belly button bare. A pair of sandals completes the outfit.

Gold and Silver

Misty appears to be older and taller. Her hair is now honey-orange instead of blonde and she styles it differently. Clothing-wise, she wears a blue and white one-piece swimsuit and a white jacket, leaving only her legs bare.

Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!

Misty resembles her anime counterpart. She has orange hair held in a spiky ponytail and is garbed in a new outfit that is similar to what her anime counterpart wears. She wears a white and blue sleeveless shirt, blue denim shorts, and red, blue, and white sneakers. Underneath her clothes, she wears a red bikini top with a blue gem in the middle and matching red bikini bottoms that resemble boyshorts. Like her Red and Blue outfit, her midriffs and belly button are shown.

Personality

Personality-wise, Misty is said to be a tomboy. She is competitive and brave, and also says things that are either on her mind or what she first thinks of.

Etymology

The name Misty originates from the word "mist".

Her Japanese name, Kasumi, is literally 霞 (kasumi, mist). However, it may also include 海 (umi, ocean), 水 (mizu, water) and 泉 (izumi, fountain).

Biography

Games

Red, Green and Blue

In Red, Green and Blue as the Cerulean City Gym Leader. She is given the nickname "The Tomboyish Mermaid" and uses Water-type Pokémon. When defeated she will give the player a Cascade Badge along with TM11 (Bubble Beam)

Yellow

Her role in Yellow is the same as it is in Red, Green and Blue.

Gold and Silver

In Gold and Silver, she still appears as the Cerulean City Gym Leader, though her depiction seems older compared to her previous depiction.

From information gained from a variety of games, it is known that Misty is always looking for a way to improve her techniques. When she trains, she goes to the Seafoam Islands for herself, and her Pokémon. Misty also has high hopes for Cerulean's North Cape, which is known as a romantic date spot. She also dreams of travelling when she becomes a better Pokemon Trainer.

Misty also appears on Pokémon Channel on a full Japanese Pichu Bros. Disk. It differs from the other Japanese Disk as Misty's (Kasumi's) voice actress is the narrator.

  • Both Red from the manga and Ash from the anime are always paired with Misty (mostly main characters are paired to Misty but in the manga, she isn't paired with Red.)
