Misty (anime)

She is also picky, sensitive, nosy and grumpy about love. There are many episodes where she is seen getting along with the younger siblings of the family, namely [[Mikey]], [[Sakura]], and [[Max]]. This stems from the fact that she understands what it's like to be the youngest because she has three older sisters.
Her goals are not as clear as those of the other main characters, but her main interest is {{pkmn|training}} {{type|Water}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} in aim of becoming Water [[Pokémon Master]]. Misty aggressively defends the Water-type against critics as seen in ''[[EP009|The School of Hard Knocks]]'' and when she first met {{t|Fire}} enthusiast [[Macy]]. She considers all members of the Water-type to be "cute", though her positive opinion on {{p|Tentacool}} in ''[[EP019|Tentacool and Tentacruel]]'' divided Ash and {{an|Brock}}. [[Fishing]] is one of her hobbies, and she even has a {{TP|Misty|special lure}} which she designed to look like herself. In ''[[AG187|The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing!]]'', she sent one to Ash as a gift. Sometime before she left for Kanto in the end of ''[[SM103|Heart of Fire! Heart of Stone!]]'', Misty even gave Lana one to show her thanks for inviting her and Brock to visit Alola.
Misty's battle style was first showcased in ''[[EP007|The Water Flowers of Cerulean City]]'', where she challenged Ash. She had her {{TP|Misty|Staryu}} dive into the water to wash off {{AP|Butterfree}}’s [[status]]-inducing [[moves]]. Misty has developed a more rounded battle strategy since becoming the full-time Cerulean Gym Leader, mirroring many of Ash’s own methods. During the {{series|Advanced Generation}}, Misty was shown to become increasingly confident and focused on her role as the Cerulean [[Gym Leader]]. ''[[SS002|Cerulean Blues]]'' saw her overcome her fear and help calm a raging {{TP|Misty|Gyarados}} which now serves as her one of her main Pokémon, while Misty learned about the Gym Badge-making process and began to appreciate her role in ''[[SS005|The Blue Badge of Courage]]''. She continues to improve her Pokémon as seen with {{TP|Misty|Psyduck}}’s mastery of {{m|Water Gun}} and her {{TP|Misty|Corsola}}’s strong defences make for a tireless battle.
The one Pokémon [[type]] that Misty cannot stand are {{type|Bug}}s, as shown in ''[[EP003|Ash Catches a Pokémon!]]'' and more recently in ''[[SM102|Alola, Alola!]]''. The only Bug-type Pokémon Misty is not afraid of are the kinds that she deems "cute" or "pretty", like {{p|Ledyba}} and {{p|Butterfree}}, some belonging to her friends, like [[Tracey's Venonat]], or ones that don't look like bugs, such as {{p|Pineco}}. However, Bug Pokémon are only one of three things Misty strongly dislikes, the other two being {{wp|carrots}} and {{wp|peppers}}.
