For the variant appearing in the games, see Misty (game).

Misty is a character who premiered in the first episode of the Pokémon anime.

In the first episode, she meets Ash after fishing him out of a lake while he was trying to get away from a flock of Spearow. Ash then takes Misty's bike from her in order to escape the Spearow which is then inadvertently wrecked by Pikachu's Thunder Shock. Misty then tracks down Ash and follows him around on his adventures until he can pay her back, although she eventually forgets about the bike and becomes one of Ash's closest friends in the process. However, at the end of their journey through the Johto Region, Misty's bike has been completely repaired, and she leaves to return home to Cerulean City to resume her duties as a Gym Leader.

She is currently the Cerulean City Gym Leader, a position she took over from her older sisters.


Misty has short, red hair tied into a side ponytail with blue elastic rubber band. She has green eyes and fair skin. She wears a yellow tank top that reveals her midriff, red suspenders, denim shorts that stop at her thighs and red high top sneakers with yellow lining and white laces. Her belly button is not usually drawn, but it is visible when she wears two-piece swimsuits. Her most common swimsuit is a red bikini, which she wore six times.

She later maintains her original outfit in her return in Alola, Kanto in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon. In this series, her belly button is shown the entire time. Beneath her outfit is her blue strapless bikini which was worn by her counterpart in both games, Pokémon Red and Blue. In When Regions Collide!, Misty has a Key Stone hidden at the back of her ponytail.

In the episode Luvdisc is a Splendid Thing in Pokémon Chronicles, her primary top is replaced with a yellow sleeveless hoodie shirt and she also wears a slightly longer and looser blue shorts, a small white belt with a pink buckle and reddish-brown penny loafer shoes worn with white socks. Her swimsuit in Pokémon Chronicles is also changed to a green bikini.

In her mermaid form, she gets longer hair.

Her new outfit in Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire consists of a yellow tank top with a dark blue button, a dark blue collar, yellow shorts and orange shoes. She wore this outfit when she met up with Ash and Brock in The Princess and the Togepi and A Togepi Mirage! and again for three episodes when Ash returned to Kanto from Hoenn. She also wore this outfit in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon along with a red drawstring bag.

During her and Brock's visit in Alola in Alola, Alola and Heart of Fire! Heart of Stone!, she wears a light yellow crop top with a salmon pink trim, an orange diagonal stripes on her midriff and a matching bows in each sides of the straps, a matching shorts with a salmon-pink ribbon-like belt and the linings in each sides along with an orange diagonal stripes and pink sandals. Her hairclip is now a rose pink and yellow flower hairpin which she conceals her Key Stone hidden at the back of her ponytail. Like her original outfit, Misty's entire midriff and belly button are uncovered.


As Misty is the youngest child in her family, she can sympathize with other youngest children like Mikey, Sakura, and Max.

Misty has a slight inferiority complex, mostly due to her three older sisters Daisy (oldest), Violet (second-from-oldest) and Lily (third-from-oldest), who formed the group, "The Three Sensational Sisters" (their synchronized swimming group), and refer to Misty as the "runt" or the "weaker one". This complex diminishes over time as Misty grows closer to them. Until Misty resumed her duties as the Cerulean City Gym Leader, her sisters were the ones who directly ran the gym, although when Ash came along to get his Cascade Badge, it was Misty who battled him for it, explicitly referring to herself as being one of the Gym Leaders during this instance.

Misty specializes mainly in Water-type Pokémon, which are her favorite type, but she's had other types, and she also deeply admires Lorelei, an Ice-type Pokémon Trainer. Misty aims to become a world-class trainer, and her well-trained Pokémon reflects her aspirations of becoming so. Her least favorite type of Pokémon is Bug-type Pokémon, as she has a deep-rooted fear of them, except for the kinds she sees as "cute" or "pretty" (i.e. Butterfree and Ledyba). However, Misty's fear lessens over the course of the series — but not to the point where she's totally gotten over it, as shown in A Real Cleffa Hanger, Alola, Kanto! and Alola, Alola!.

As the series continues, Misty gradually shows herself to be more mature, kind and sensible. For some reasons, Misty would restrain Brock from girls, often pulling him away by the ear and reprimanding him for his behavior. This trait continued with the friends who join Ash on his journeys after she parted ways with him, following their journey through the Johto Region.


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).


One of Misty's lures.

Misty is a great fisher, good at making fishing lure versions of herself for her fishing and an amazing battler, due to being a Gym Leader.



Daisy, Violet, and Lily

Misty and her sisters, Daisy, Violet and Lily.

Misty doesn't usually get along with her sisters but still loves them very much. Also, she does get annoyed with them a lot. She would help them whenever they needed it even if they don't, which shows how much she cares for them.



Misty and Ash.

Misty didn't get off to a great start with Ash when they first met. Also, Misty followed Ash until the day he paid her back for her bike, after he borrowed it to save his Pikachu and accidentally destroyed it. However, Misty not only forgot about it, but also forgave Ash, as she understood that he had noble intentions and it wasn't entirely on purpose. Through their time together, Misty and Ash became best friends. Misty mentored Ash in becoming a Pokémon Trainer. Although she gets annoyed with him sometimes, Misty knows in her heart that Ash will always be there for her whenever she needed it and she would always be there for him for the same reason. Despite their friendship, Misty and Ash do fight a lot, as some of their fights led them to almost losing their friendship, but they make up in the end.

Misty with Ash and Pikachu in Alola.

Also, Misty teases Ash from time to time and they have a friendly rivalry with each other as they try to show each other up, which ends up in one or the other being too overconfident or a little bit sadistic for their own good. When Misty was forced to return to Cerulean City to take over the Gym while her sisters went on an around-the-world cruise and got her bike repaired by Nurse Joy of Viridian City, she felt hurt towards Ash because he thought the repayment of her bike was the reason she traveled with him. However, Misty realized that Ash does care about her and their friendship when he and Brock saved her from the Invincible Pokémon Brothers.

Misty even sent one of her fishing lures to Ash as a gift, which shows that their friendship has remained strong. Also, Misty and Ash have seen each other again a few times as they're happy to see one another again, shown when she meets up with him in Hoenn, and his hometown when he briefly returned to Kanto and in Alola.


Misty and Brock.

Brock is Misty's other best friend as they greatly respect each other for their knowledge and skills as Pokémon Trainers. Although, Misty gets annoyed when Brock gets smitten with girls, which led her to pull him away from them by the ear and even uses other methods at times, although he is quick to pull her away by the ear whenever she gets overly excited about Water-type Pokémon.

Misty and Brock in Alola.

Misty does get annoyed at Brock for other things as well. Also, Misty and Brock don't usually fight; however, they have small fallouts at times, but they easily get over it. After they went their separate ways, Misty's friendship with Brock remain no matter where they are or what they do.


Misty and Tracey.

Misty and Tracey are great friends as they traveled through the Orange Islands together, despite the moments involving his interest in Bug-type Pokémon which she is opposed to. They part ways when their Orange Islands journey ended but their friendship remain. Also, Misty is happy that Tracey visits her at the Cerulean Gym, after she took over the position full time.


Misty and Sakura.

Misty is close friends with Sakura, due to both of them knowing what it is like to be the youngest of older sisters. Also, Misty would help Sakura as she has her back and she also has her. Misty even help Sakura set up a way to find Team Rocket when they stole her sisters' Pokémon.


Misty and May.

Misty has a very good friendship with May. They bonded during the incident at the Mirage Kingdom when Togepi was kidnapped. They met up again in Kanto when Ash was about to challenge the Battle Frontier. There, they teamed up and defeated Team Rocket with Misty's Azurill and May's Combusken.

Misty and May teamed up again at the Mirage Mansion, where they took on the Mirage Master after he used Mirage Pokémon to kidnap Professor Oak. From then onward, they have become very good friends and will not hesitate to help each other in times of need.


Misty and Max.

Misty has a close friendship with Max due to both of them being younger siblings. During Max's first venture into Kanto, him and Misty were separated from the group, and Misty took time to take care of him and mentor him. After they rejoined the group, Misty and Max both promise to look out for their sisters no matter what.


Misty and Lana.

When they first meet, Misty and Lana have become good friends as they share a common love for Water-Type Pokémon. Also, Misty and Lana kept in touch as she invited her along with Brock to Alola. Misty gave Lana one of her fishing lures as her way thanking her for inviting her and Brock to visit Alola.



Misty and Goldeen.

Goldeen is one of Misty's Pokémon and she would use it from time to time in battle, although she would it use whenever there was water due to not battling well on land. Also, Misty does care about Goldeen and it cares about her in return. Misty would have Goldeen help her and her friends whenever they were swimming on water or needed it to pull them on a raft. After retuning from her journey, Misty had Goldeen stay at the gym so it could swim.


Misty and Staryu.

Staryu is one of Misty's main Pokémon and she would call upon it for help in battle. Misty has a good relationship with Staryu. Sometimes, Misty would have Staryu help her or her friends whenever they needed to swim on water. Also, Misty would have Staryu push on a raft she and her friends were on. Misty usually has Staryu with her whenever she need to call on upon it.


Misty and Starmie.

Misty also has a good relationship with Starmie. Misty used Starmie to surf on water or when she needed it to help pull on a raft she was on alongside her friends. When her sister needed extra Pokémon to perform in their shows, Misty was asked to leave Starmie with them which upset her as she was gonna miss it. However, Misty happily reunited with Starmie when she returned to the Cerulean Gym.


Misty and Horsea.

Misty and Horsea instantly formed a friendship when they first meet as it instantly warned her about an upcoming danger and then she nursed it back to health. After saving everyone from danger together, Misty added Horsea to her team. However, Misty realized that Horsea needed a bigger place to swim and left under the care of sisters so it could swim in the Cerulean Gym's pool as much it wants. When she returns to run the Cerulean Gym, Misty was very happy to see Horsea again.


Misty and Psyduck.

Misty wasn't fond of Psyduck at first when it joined her team but grew to care about it. However, Misty gets annoyed when Psyduck pops out of its Poké Ball on its own and when it just does nothing. Although, Misty would go out of her way for Psyduck and does enjoy its company sometimes. After becoming Gym Leader full time, Misty had Psyduck accompany her sometimes. She would claim she didn't like Psyduck, but she had many chances to get rid of it and she didn't use any of them. However, after the events of The Battle Frontier arc as shown in the Sun and Moon arc, their relationship has improved unexpectedly. Although as shown during her and Brock's visit to Alola, she still get irritated when Psyduck gets into trouble like how it swipe a watermelon from Anela's stand with one swallow.


Misty and Togetic.

Misty was a mother figure to Togetic, during her time as a Togepi, as she always takes good care of her and became very protective of her during their time together. Also, Misty would hold Togetic, while she was a Togepi, in her arms, although she would hold her onto her shoulder or put her in her backpack. When Togepi evolved into Togetic, Misty was very happy for her but became sad later when she wanted to be with her own kind. However, Misty understood Togetic's reasons. Before she left, Misty told Togetic that she loved her very much and she even knew in her heart that their bond for each other will always be there no matter what.


Misty and Politoed.

Misty has known Politoed since it was a Poliwag as they instantly bonded after meeting each other. It evolved into Poliwhirl to help Misty win in her battle with Ash which shows the loyalty and care they have for each other. Misty encourages Politoed to do its best no matter what. After it evolved into its final stage, Misty would have Politoed be part of the cheering crew whenever Ash was battling, which was mainly shown in the Johto League. After returning to Cerulean City, Misty had Politoed stay at the Gym.


Misty and Corsola.

Misty first meet Corsola when she and her friends were visiting one the whirl islands in Johto as she wanted to catch one for a while at the time. When she got that chance to catch it and succeed in getting the Pokémon she wanted, Misty and Corsola became very close. At times, Misty would call on Corsola to battle from time to time. Also, Misty brings Corsola with her sometimes when she leaves to go somewhere.


Misty and Gyarados.

When she returns to Cerulean City and found about a recently evolved Gyarados, Misty tried her best to tame it but couldn't because it was not only out of control but also her fear of them was getting the better of her. However, Misty let go of her fear of Gyarados's to save it when it was attacked by Trainers she dealt with before. After that, Misty and Gyarados formed a strong bond with each other as they can do Mega Evolution together. Also, Misty would use Gyarados in a lot of battles as her ace battler and keep it with her whenever she leaves the Gym.


Misty and Caserin

Misty obtained Caserin, a Luvdisc, at the Cerulean Gym. Seeing him having trouble winning Daisy's Luvdisc, Luverin, heart, Misty tried to help Caserin win her over. Misty encourages Caserin which shows how they were able to become friends with each otter right away. However, Misty would usually have Caserin stay at the Gym.


Misty and Azurill.

Misty was given Azurill when it was an egg by Tracey and they even became very good friends with one another. Like Togetic during his days as a Togepi, Misty enjoys holding Azurill in her arms and is very protective of it. However, Misty has Azurill stay at the Gym and knows that the other Pokémon will look after it while she was away from the building.

Pokémon the Series: The Beginning

Misty (Season 1)

In the series, Misty first is seen wearing a yellow crop top with red suspenders and light denim shorts. Her whole midriff is showing, but her belly button is not usually drawn. Her shoes were colored red and white, with a yellow streak in the middle. Misty's personality in the anime can be complex at times. She can be very nice to her friends but will then quickly change moods in a short amount of time, particularly anger. She is quite proficient in anything having to do with water, such as fishing, swimming, and overall Water Pokémon training. She also encountered Team Rocket many times and would assist Ash and Brock in stopping them. Even though she wanted to stay with Ash, Misty felt obligated to watch over her family's Gym since her sisters would be gone on their world trip. The two went their separate ways, and Misty resumed Gym Leader duties at Cerulean City's Gym.

Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

In this series, Misty wears a pale yellow vest/sleeveless jacket, with a dark blue button and a collar of the same color. She also wears yellow shorts, a crimson leotard under her vest, light and burnt orange high-tops, and white socks.

Misty being protected by Togepi.

Misty has only appeared as a guest star in the remainder of the Pokémon series. In one of her cameo appearances in the Advanced Generation series, her Togepi evolves into Togetic. Misty releases Togetic after it chooses to stay behind to defend the Mirage Kingdom and Togepi Paradise.

After Ash finishes competing in the Hoenn League, he returns home to Pallet Town to find Misty waiting for him. However, she isn't the only one to rejoin Ash — May, Max, and Brock join him as well for the Battle Frontier challenges. She travels with Ash for two episodes and then returns to her Gym shortly afterward.

Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon

Misty and Brock reuniting Ash along with meeting his Alolan friends for the first time.

Misty returns alongside with Brock in "Alola, Kanto!" when Ash returns to Kanto after his travels in Alola for his school project with his classmates. After an exploration, she is the only one who releases the Alolan Pokémon being compared with the Kanto Pokémon and helping Lana to find her Popplio under the depths of the lake. She releases Staryu to aid Brock's Crobat and Ash's Lycanroc to rescue their friends' Pokémon from Team Rocket. The next day, they travel to Cerulean City for their extracurricular lesson and after Brock tells Ash about his younger brother Forrest, who currently runs the Pewter City Gym, Misty tells them that her sisters are traveling, much to Brock's depression.

Misty battling against Ash.

In "SM043: When Regions Collide!", Misty shows to them the inside of the newly rebuilt Cerulean City Gym and thanked her Psyduck for guarding the Gym. She also uses this as an opportunity to battle against Mallow's Steenee and Lana's Popplio in a handicap but, when Psyduck gets a severe headache and to unleash Confusion on both Pokémon, Misty has to calm it. Misty later battles against Ash using her Gyarados against his Pikachu. She also reveals the Key Stone hidden at the back of the hairclip of her ponytail as she Mega Evolves her Gyarados. Despite her strategy, her Mega Gyarados was defeated by Pikachu who uses the Z-Move the Gigavolt Havoc.

After giving Lana, Mallow, and Lillie some replicas of Cascade Badges, she and Brock were told by Ash to visit him in Alola. Before Ash and the others depart, Misty became interested in Ash's Z-Ring.

She and Brock later visit Ash and the group in Pokémon School at Alola. Ash and his classmates give her a tour and she meets Nina and Anela. She surfs with them in a school of Mantine and plays around with a wild Alolan Exeggutor. She later helps them fend off Team Rocket by releasing her Gyarados to rescue a school of Mantine with their attacks. She angrily Mega Evolves her Gyarados, allowing Ash and the others to destroy the robot with their attacks and Z-Moves as she commands her Mega Gyarados to unleash Hydro Pump as a final blow, blasting Team Rocket off to the sky. Back at Melemele Island, she and Ash visit Brock while cooking some stew for dinner as Misty's Psyduck pops out on its own to eat their stew, much to Misty's annoyance. She noticed Ash was falling asleep while watching the night of the full moon and soon after the trio spend the night at their tent while being watched happily by both Professor Burnet and Professor Kukui.

  • In the Pokémon anime, director/writer Takeshi Shudo's novelizations of the Pokémon anime series, Misty is confirmed in chapter 3 of novel 2 ("Four sisters of Hanada City") to be around the same age as Ash was when he started his journey, and as of that chapter. This would place Misty's age in the novels as being around 10 to 11 initially. In "Ash Catches a Pokémon" in a line that was rewritten in the dub to remove the mention of age, Misty after waking up to see Ash's Caterpie sleeping next to her exclaims that such was "the worst thing that's happened to [Misty] in the ten years of [Misty's] life", which implies that she's also 10 in the anime, at least initially, which is supported by supplemental materials for the show in the Japanese version listing her as 10.
  • Despite Misty being a Water-type trainer, she has had some exceptions in the anime — Togepi which is a Fairy-type, Togetic which evolved from Togepi is a Fairy turned Fairy/Flying type and Azurill which is a Normal type. That being said, however, the latter Pokémon does evolve into a Water type. She has also attempted to catch an Oddish once despite it actually being a Grass/Poison-type due to it drinking from a pool of water.
  • Despite being out of contact with Brock since Johto, when they visit Ash in the Sun and Moon series, Misty retains her old habit of punishing him for fawning over cute girls by dragging him away.
  • Misty is the first victim of the recurring gag in the anime where Ash's Pikachu destroys every main female character's bike. This gag was also transferred to May and Dawn. However, this gag did not affect Iris, Bonnie or Serena, because they did not have bikes.
    • Iris and Bonnie were shocked directly by Pikachu while Serena wasn't shocked at all.
  • In the anime, although Misty possessed a fear of most Bug-types, she does make an exception for those she likes (such as Beautifly, Ash's Butterfree, Ash's Heracross and Ledyba), as well as ones that don't look like bugs (such as Pineco, which looks like a pinecone).
    • She also has had a fear of Gyarados after crawling into one's mouth as a baby (despite it being part Water-type). She conquered this fear and she had a Gyarados of her own that knows the Fire-type move Flamethrower. But it seems that it has forgotten the move. In her Sun and Moon appearance Gyarados can Mega Evolve, which she uses against Ash.
  • Misty was the one who created the gag of pulling Brock away by the ear every time he flirted with a pretty woman. This gag transferred to Max in Hoenn, and then Brock's Croagunk in Sinnoh (though Croagunk used Poison Jab instead of pulling Brock's ear, making it easier to drag him away while he was stunned by the poison).
  • Misty originally referred to Ash's Caterpie as "ugly" and "disgusting"; Ash later attempted to leave Misty, only to have her secretly following him. Once Caterpie evolved into Metapod and then to Butterfree, she took a liking to it (thus showing that she didn't dislike all Bug-type Pokémon — just ones that did not fit her view of pretty looks).
  • Misty has three things she has a strong dislike for, bugs, carrots, peppers. This is made clear in episode 3 of the first series.
  • In Super Smash Bros. Melee, while Misty's trophy describing her appearance in the games, it physically features her with her original outfit from the anime.
  • A recurring gag that started in the Orange Islands League is when someone in the show indicated that Ash and Misty were attracted to each other — something both of them denied. In the second Pokémon movie, Misty got jealous after Melody kisses Ash, implying that she truly does have a crush on Ash; although she initially denies it, she changes her mind later and implicitly admits it to be true towards the end of the film. In fact, Misty's Song strongly implies this even more. Previously, in the Orange Island League, Rudy, one gym leader who was attracted to Misty, noticed her feelings for Ash and tried hinting at it to Ash, who was oblivious. In a later episode in the Johto League, Misty even told Ash that one day they would be married, surprising Ash (although it's debatable whether or not she meant that they would end up marrying each other).
  • Misty is the only female main character to appear in more than one generation as she appeared in Generation I and II as a main character while May, Dawn, Iris, Bonnie, and Serena have each appeared in only one generation as a main character.
    • Also, she is the only female traveling companion to appear in more than two series, as she appears in the Original series, Advanced Generation series, and Sun & Moon series, bringing Misty to a total of three so far.
  • Misty adopts a different personality when talking about/interacting with water Pokémon, as noted by Ash in the episode Tentacool & Tentacruel.
  • Misty did not actually become Gym Leader in Cerulean Blues, as the Japanese version of that episode had Inspector Joy specifically stating that Misty proved herself well enough to continue running Cerulean Gym. In addition, Misty has also explicitly referred to herself in both versions as the Cerulean Gym Leader in "The Water Flowers of Cerulean City", "Totodile Duel", and "Entei and the Unknown Tower", taking place well before Cerulean Blues.
  • Misty is first female character to:
    • Be a Gym Leader.
    • Have caught or received a Water, Psychic, Normal, Rock and Flying-type Pokémon.
    • Have caught or received a pure Water-type Pokémon.
    • Have caught or received a member or more from the Generation I and II groups.
    • Have more than one Water-type.
    • Have a Pokémon or more that is Genderless.
    • Have received or found a Pokémon Egg.
    • Have or had a Baby Pokémon.
    • Have a Pokémon that can't evolve.
    • Have a fully evolved Water-type.
    • Have a Pokémon or more that has a cross-generational evolution.
    • Have a Pokémon evolve into its cross-generational evolution.
    • Have a Pokémon or more that evolved into their second stage or were fully evolved before being obtained or caught.
    • Have released a Pokémon.
    • Use Mega Evolution.
  • Not counting her cameos in flashbacks and photos, Misty currently holds the record for being the traveling companion with the longest "non-appearance gap" in the anime with 573 episodes between A Real Cleffa-Hanger and her reappearance in Alola, Kanto!
  • She is referenced by Ash in Pokémon the Series: Diamond and Pearl, with her likeness appearing as a fishing lure Ash owns. She also appears in a flashback in Pokémon the Series: Black and White.
  • Misty shares a few characteristics with Lana.
    • They both have a love for Water-type Pokémon.
    • Both have siblings. (Lana is the oldest and Misty is the youngest respectively.)
    • Both enjoy swimming and fishing.
    • Both specialize in battling with Water-type Pokémon.
    • Both have at least one Normal-Type Pokémon with their Water-Type Pokémon: Misty has her Azurill and formerly had her Togepi, and Lana has her Eevee named Sandy, respectively. Coincidentally, both her Azurill and Sandy are Pokémon that can evolve into Water Types (or in the case of the latter, potentially evolve).
    • Both of them have nicknamed at least one of their Pokémon: Misty has nicknamed both of her Luvdisc Caserin and Luverin, and Lana has nicknamed her Eevee Sandy, respectively.
  • Misty one of three Travelling Companions of Ash's who has a nicknamed Pokémon. The others being Lana and Lillie.
  • While it is never mentioned in the anime, the July 2006 issue of K-Zone Magazine revealed Misty's surname is Williams.
