The japanese version of Misty's flashback montage showed a wider variety of her experiances. Catching and winning battles with pokemon, as well as times with Brock and Tracey. The dub... pretty much made it into a mushy Ash and Misty love moment... which it was never meant to be. Shipper tho I am, and as sweet as it was, I kinda would have liked it had her farewell remained a montage to ALL the things she'd done, as opposed to a few things she'd done with Ash. ESPECIALLY since one of the memories was from the opening credits! and another never even happened! (The one where she's in a dress and Ash and Brock are in suits... the characters just imagined that, it really should not have been a memory...)
Still, a very nice, touching farewell, I really loved it at the time, and is still one of the best late Johto episodes. One of the few where Misty had a personality and character...
