Misty (anime)

No change in size, 06:51, 20 August 2019
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 at the end of ''[[SM103|Heart of Fire! Heart of Stone!]]'', Misty gave Lana another one as 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 condition|status]]-inducing [[movesmove]]s. 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 defenses 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}}.
