I was really expecting Misty to be greatly fascinated with the red shiny gyarados, and overcome here fear of them, and for HER to be the one to engage in a fierce battle with it, and capture it, but unfortunately, she didn't. I thought that would've made a nice plot twist. Oh well, at least she later conqured her fear of them, and she has a gyarados to call her own now. Nice appearance for Lance too.
