Misty (Japanese: カスミ Kasumi) is a Gym Leader of Cerulean City's Gym, known officially as the Cerulean Gym. She gives the Cascade Badge to Trainers who defeat her in battle. She specializes in Water-type Pokémon.

In the core series games

Misty appears in Pokémon Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, and LeafGreen and Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! as the Gym Leader of the Cerulean Gym, which is the second Gym that the player challenges on their journey. Her strategy is an all-out attack with Water-type Pokémon, and she is constantly looking for ways to improve her technique. A swimmer herself, she trains at the Seafoam Islands. She admires Lorelei of the Elite Four. It is said that she has high hopes for Cerulean Cape, a romantic date spot. She also expresses a desire to travel one day once she has become stronger. In addition to the Cascade Badge, Misty gives out TM11 (BubbleBeam) in Red, Blue, and Yellow, TM03 (Water Pulse) in FireRed and LeafGreen, and TM29 (Scald) in Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!.

In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, Misty appears in Vermilion City after the player has defeated Lt. Surge, offering to show them the way to the Diglett's Cave entrance on Route 11.

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 Johto Badges, 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, once 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 Wednesday mornings, 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.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, Misty appears alongside the other Gym Leaders of Kanto as an opponent in the Kanto Leaders Tournament at the Pokémon World Tournament. She also participates alongside the Gym Leaders of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova in the World Leaders Tournament, and other Water-type experts in the Water Type Expert Tournament.

In the anime

Main series

Main article: Misty (anime)

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, the Orange Islands, and the Johto region, using the time she spent with him to further her goal of becoming the greatest Water Pokémon Master.

At the end of the original series, Misty's bike was returned and repaired by the Nurse Joy of Viridian City, and as her sisters were leaving on a world tour, Misty stayed at the Cerulean Gym as its leader in order to keep it open.

Despite this, she still visits Ash from time to time, meeting up with him during the Mirage Kingdom and Battle Frontier arcs of Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire. More recently, she reappeared in Pokémon the Series: Sun & Moon for a small arc set in Kanto.

Pokémon Origins

Misty appeared briefly in File 2: Cubone. She was shown being challenged to a Gym battle by Red, who later defeated her off-screen, earning the young Pokémon Trainer the Cascade Badge.

Red, Green & Blue chapter

Misty debuts in Gyarados Splashes In!, where Red saves her from her enraged Gyarados, which has been experimented on by Team Rocket. After they recapture the Pokémon, Red and Misty join forces to defeat Team Rocket and find the Moon Stone at Mt. Moon. During the battle, Misty is knocked out by a Team Rocket Grunt's Rhydon.

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.

File:Misty Dressed up.png
Misty dressed up

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.

Yellow chapter

She is seen 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 after all along, her Gym Badge. Misty had her Starmie go to Cerise Island and give the message to the others.

Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter

Unlike in the anime, Misty has changed her hairstyle later on to match the one worn by her in Pokémon Gold and Silver. 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.

In The Last Battle XIV, Misty decides to report to Erika via her Pokégear. Since Erika lent her Pokégear earlier to Red, Red ends up being the one who receives the call. Misty's feelings for Red couple with Yellow noticing that Red is talking to Misty creates an awkward tension in the air. Green, fully aware of the tension between them, smugly declares that the three should simply all live together, much to their embarrassment.

Starmie was also used in the Gym Leader tournament in the Gold, Silver & Crystal chapter, where it easily defeated Whitney's Mil Mil.

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.

When Satoshi arrives at the Cerulean Gym in PZ03, 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 lifesaver. 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.

In the TFG

Misty appears as a rare Trainer figure in the launch set, Next Quest, of the Pokémon Trading Figure Game.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Misty appears as a random trophy, wearing her outfit from the anime.

Trophy information

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 original Japanese version, she uses her anime counterpart's catchphrase instead (いくわよ!マーイステディ! Go! My Steady!).
