First of many adventurers to travel with Ash Ketchum on his Pokémon journey. Misty specializes in water type Pokémon.


Misty is the leader of the Cerulean Gym, she left the Gym to her three sisters so she could travel with Ash Ketchum. She first came across Ash when she was out fishing and managed to hook Ash out of the water, thinking he was a big catch. After running into Misty, Ash borrowed her bike to escape a flock of wild Spearow. The bike was returned burned to a crisp by a Thundershock attack from Pikachu. She told him she wouldn't leave him alone until he bought her a new bike.

Her Pokémon include Goldeen, Staryu, Starmie, Horsea, Psyduck, Corsola, Gyarados, Azurill, Luvdisc, Seel, and she raised a Togepi that soon evolved into a Togetic.


Misty was created by Satoshi Tajiri, originally designed by Ken Sugimori and Atsuko Nishida for the Pokémon video game series, and designed by Sayuri Ichishi for the anime series.

Misty's main outfits all feature the colors red, blue, and yellow.

  • Original series outfit - Misty is introduced wearing a yellow crop top revealing her midriff and a pair of denim shorts held up by red suspenders. With them she wears red and white sneakers decorated with yellow patterns and she carries her things in a red draw-string bag.
  • Advanced generation outfit - Misty's second outfit consists of a yellow sleeveless top (similar to her first outfit) with a blue collar and button on the front, a matching fair of skintight shorts, worn over the top of what appears to be a dark-red one-piece swimsuit or leotard. She also wears orange boots and a bag.

  • Goldeen costume - A silver costume based on the Pokémon Goldeen. It consists of a skin-tight leotard with large fish tails, elbow gloves, and high-heel shoes. Misty wore this while she posed as a magician's assistant.
  • Mermaid costume - A full mermaid costume Misty sometimes wears at the Cerulean Gym. Consists of hair extensions that reach down her back, jewelry, a pink shell-bra, and blue mermaid fins that start from her waist. There is a yellow star on the side.


Misty can be something of a know-it-all and has a very fierce (and at times, violent) temper, but while travelling with Ash and Brock she is generally the most balanced of the three characters. Ash is the hot-headed, impulsive one while Brock is the cool-headed, responsible one. Misty usually shows traits of both and keeps both of them grounded. Whenever Brock starts to drool over a girl too much, Misty quickly brings him back to reality by dragging him away by the ear. When Ash feels invincible, she makes a usually brutal remark that gets him focused and hungry again. While Misty's temper sometimes shows little respect for others' self-esteem, she can be maternal and sensitive at times. She is also a bit of a tomboy, but still loves "girly" things like swimsuits and tanning or cute trinkets and dolls. She even keeps a doll collection at home.


Ash Ketchum

Although Ash and Misty start off not liking each other, they little by little become close friends, each willing to stick up for the other. Misty admires Ash's love for Pokémon and is very supportive of him. When other girls flirt with Ash, Misty becomes frustrated and jealous, but when she is asked if Ash and her are a couple, she typically blushes and denies it fiercely.

Older Sisters

Misty generally hates living in the shadow of her older sisters, all of whom are considered more beautiful and talented than herself, leading to the three sisters calling Misty the "runt" of the family. When Misty helps them out by performing in a water show, she gains much more respect from them and Misty no longer has to fight so fiercely for their approval.
