She thought he was good-looking and cool; I think she had a crush on him. It's possible to have a crush on someone while being in love with someone else.

The Philosophy of Shipping (shipdr.tumblr.com)
Perhaps I should point out I didn't really have shipping as my intention behind the rivalry idea. I mainly see it as a way of creating new story opportunities with past characters.
In my opinion Ash and Misty could be considered as some sort of rivals. They clashed in many occassions and they also were very competitive. Ash often wanted to show Misty his talents as a trainer and every time they battled or raced against each other, they were both very determined to win. I found their friendly rivarly rather cute, besides I think it only deepened further their friendship and at the same time they learned a lot of stuff from each other.
I agree that they had their moments as rivals in certain situations, and they were always really interesting to watch. After all this time, it might be cool for Misty to come back as a rival for Ash. Not only do they already know each other, but I don't think we've ever really seen the skills Misty has developed since becoming a Gym Leader. She could put her skills to the test, and Ash can show her how much he has improved since she last traveled with him. I think it would bring something new to their relationship with each other, while also allowing them to get to know each other again in a different way. One thing we can always count on Ash to notice is anything pokemon-related - he is always recognizing great trainers and acknowledging their skills. Who knows, Misty might impress him as a rival, and he might wake up and realize some things.
So, does anyone know what the fishing episode is called? I saw that there's one with a magikarp, I seriously hope from there a mega gyradose episode can appear, and they'll have Misty come up with hers. I just want Misty back, for another Ash x Misty interaction. It's been a long time coming.
BUT if she were to be mentioned id want it to go like this.
Ash mentions something about Misty and her gyrados
Serena asks "who's Misty?."
Ash replies, "an old friend."
Serena says, "hmph. Friend or GIRL friend?"
And then ash freaks out and blushes as per usual when someone accuses him of liking Misty "what?! No ofcourse not she's just my friend ew!" And Bonnie says, "hmmm you are acting suspicious ash!" And he continues to freak out again while Serena looks at him like she knows he likes her. Lol ahhh. Only if.
It would benefit pokeshippers and amourshippers because Serena would show jealousy and ash would show that he obviously still thinks about Misty!. Lol

When it rains, look for RAINBOWS. When it's dark, look for STARS. <3

The fishing episode is called Fish the golden Koiking! and is scheduled to air in April. I haven't had much hope for 'Misty Special' to appear after DP, even though there might be very good chance for that unless it's again some competition where you're not allowed to use own tools.
Another fishing episode eh? I would think about seeing the lure bring back cameo but I sure wish to see it again if given a chance. I wonder if Ash himself has it in his backpack or something with him even up to this point that he's in Kalos. I wonder where is Misty handkerchief gift to Ash too? But it would be a good chance to think of.
I actually went back and watched every pokeshipping episodes last night. Even episodes where they would hold each other, like when Misty held on to Ash when they were hanging on to bulbasaur, or when she did the same while opening the door for Jame's growlithe. What can I say xD? Cutest episodes ever. It makes me angry to know how much potential they had that they just threw it away.
I like to think Ash still has either of the items with him and maybe he'd think that having some memento of Misty, he feels that she'll still be with him like he said in 'Gotta Catch ya Later'. Though I sometimes wonder what happened to that handkerchief. In AG Ash used it only once and then the item just disappeared somewhere and we've never seen it again after that :/
Speaking of Gotta Catch You Later, can we just talk about how great that episode was? Sure I wanted more, but it was such a great highlight on not just Misty, but on Ash. It actually showed that no matter where Misty is he actually does care about her even though it may not seem like it. I just didn't like the writing. It was too rushed, unexpected and weird imo. I didn't see why Misty didn't have 2 more episodes with her as a final tribute. Instead of like 8 minutes..
