I shed a tear like a man when I first saw this, and rightfully so! This episode was full of emotion, especially the goodbye sequence. The original trio enjoyed the most meaningful adventures and they were the best of friends. Having such a strong bond together is their claim to fame and they won't be forgotten. I was so glad the last line of the Misty song was false.
Goodbye, funny how that's such a hard thing to say.
Now it's time to let go but... never thought I'd feel this way.
Promised not to be sad but... we both knew I was lying.
Gotta fight back the tears cause can't let you see me crying
You're more than just my best friend
What makes me misty most of all,
In our final curtain call,
Is knowing that I won't see you again.
But they did see her again in Hoenn. So there is no reason why she can't be seen again, after they are done goofing around with the complete BW reboot. It doesn't really matter what haters say about Misty; she'll never be forgotten and will always be a special part of the franchise. And if she ever gets to come back, then hopefully the writers will have had enough experience with her to make sure she gets good development, interaction, and focus.
