When Misty returned to [[Cerulean City]] to fill in for [[The Sensational Sisters|her sisters]] as [[Gym Leader]] in ''[[SS002|Cerulean Blues]]'', she found out that a newly-[[evolution|evolved]] {{p|Gyarados}} was on a rampage at the [[Cerulean Gym]]. Even worse, [[Pokémon Inspection Agency|PIA]] inspectors were ready to condemn the [[Gym]] if there was no leader to keep Gyarados under control. Panicking, Misty tried many attempts to stop it, including a reenactment of the water ballet show Gyarados participated in as a {{p|Magikarp}}. When none of these methods worked, Misty resorted to locking it in a cage. However, after the [[Invincible Pokémon Brothers]] had an unfair battle with Misty, they got their {{p|Tentacruel}} to attack it with {{m|Poison Sting}}. Misty then took the attack for Gyarados, causing Gyarados to earn her trust. Calmed, it finally allowed her to return it to its [[Poké Ball]].
==Personality and characteristics==

At first, Gyarados was very angry and enraged, attacking every nearby [[human|person]] and {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and not calming down for a second. This contrasts with its personality as a {{p|Magikarp}}, when it was much more relaxed and had once even participated in a water ballet with {{an|Misty}}. Its rage as a Gyarados even made it unwilling to go back into its {{ball|Poké}}, forcing Misty to confine it in a cage to avoid any further damage to the [[Gym]].

However, when Gyarados saw how much Misty cared about her hurt {{TP|Misty|Corsola}}, its personality started to become calmer. When Misty took the {{p|Tentacruel}}'s {{m|Poison Sting}} in order to protect Gyarados, and was on the brink of drowning, Gyarados broke out of its cage and brought Misty to the surface, showing that it now had full confidence in her. By this point, Gyarados even listened to her commands and was willing to go back into its Poké Ball. This bond has remained between Misty and Gyarados ever since, making Gyarados one of Misty's primary battlers.
