"We love you Misty"
Misty is the youngest of 4 sisters who reside in the Cerulean Gym. Fed up with her more glamourous older sisters, Misty leaves the gym with the aim of becoming the world's greatest Water Pok�mon trainer.
She met Ash when she "caught" him (nudge nudge wink wink) with her fishing line in a river near Viridian City. She travelled with Ash, Brock, and Tracey through the Kanto region, Orange Islands, and Johto. Her goal was ostensibly to get Ash to replace her bike, which he had destroyed when they first met.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.
After Ash competed in the Johto League Silver Conference, however, the bicycle was fixed and returned to her by the Viridian City Nurse Joy. Misty was sad that she no longer had the excuse to travel with Ash. 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 for them.
Misty wanted to stay with Ash, but felt it was her
responsibility to look after the Gym, which would be shut down if
it was left unattended. Even after her sisters returned, Misty remained
the sole Cerulean Gym Leader. Only Daisy (the eldest
sister, and the one Misty is best friends with) seems to spend any
large amount of time at the Gym now that Misty has returned. Misty
used to hate Gyarados
because of a traumatic experience as a child in which she was nearly
eaten by one, but she later overcame her fears and now uses a Gyarados
as one of her primary Pok�mon.
