    Can I join? =D Misty has always been my favorite character from the Anime and I've been waiting for her to return to the series since she left... ;-;

    She was pretty great and way better than May, Dawn and Iris have ever been.
    Her personality was way more interesting and I loved the relationship she developed with Ash and Brock. Tbh they were the perfect travelling team and I'll never forget their adventures.

    Given how Ash is after N arc going back to Kanto to explore Dekorola archipelago only increase chances for return of good old redhead even more and while its stretch, her appearance in flashback could have also been writers way of preparing younger viewers for Misty return getting some info, knowledge prior to that.
    Through Charizard return and lot of emphasis on background i believe writers proved once and for all how new generations being unfamiliar with older characters doesn't play any difference, nor stop previous companion from returning back.
    Looking back, the animation is pretty decent, if a little generic. I feel they could've done Misty more justice than that (along with several others), but to be fair the animation was definitely decent.

    I hadn't thought of it that way. It would be great if the writers were to do something like that. I have been seeing people say they should redo the Kanto series with BW's animation and I thought it would be a nice idea, I don't have high hopes for it, but it sure would be great to see everything we've seen in Kanto with amazing animations. But, if not that, I think I would totally be able to settle for seeing Misty again in the flesh.

    WOW!! Amazing!!! It's so great to see her again, even if it's just in Ash's flashback! I think this is her first appearance aside from that special where Brock showed a photo with her and Ash in it...

    I was concerned that Misty wouldn't look right with BW's new animation/drawing style but she looks great!
    Wow I am...so happy...Wow!!!

    Misty looked pretty good in the new BW animation, the only notable change to her were her eyes, which got bigger and cuter imo XD
    Also I don't know if we'll see Misty in the new BW 2 series, but I think there could be some Pallet Town episodes that she could appear in. I doubt she would be in the islands that Iris and Cilan are traveling through.

    Hi, everyone. Hope you had great holidays.

    I would also like to wish warm welcome to new members like ~Azurill~. Welcome to the club, glad to have you with is.

    I see there are some new topics too, pretty interesting if i may say.

    What do you like most about Misty? Design, temper, a certain Pokemon, voice, etc.?

    I liked most her strong personality having several emotions and traits which made her unique, passionate and very vibrant as character. She was hotheaded tomboy, but also had serene and caring side. Passionate about various hobbies and dreams whether its fishing, water types, cute an cuddly pokemon etc. Snarky with her smart alec jokes, moments of annoyance and temperament outbursts lifting up atmosphere between characters making dynamic more fluid.

    She was strong and independent female which didn't took bull from anyone, helped others to believe in themselves and follow their dreams, didn't cared what others think being herself serving as good role model and providing zealous and balanced interaction between characters.

    Along with having cool pokemon, unique dreams being only Ash traveling companion which specialized in one type wanting to master and become best with them. Not to mention i liked her character development which while left more to be desired in her story emphasized on character qualities making her grow in strong, independent female becoming better trainer and person without sacrificing her appeal remaining adventurous, flamboyant and chippy.

    She's great character and i appreciated her contribution to anime wishing that she returns again. Not only because i miss her persona, but also because she was left with lot of untapped potential to do much more. As well never receiving any real sense of conclusion leaving things open, undefined.

    If Misty came back, would the show automatically improve?

    While not everything would improve, Misty return would be step in right direction. Since it would open door toward more continuity based anime, allow for stable cast through which writers could build on someone story and friendship taking it forward and create prerequisite for more plot driven and consistent development.
    Since there would be no rehashes and complete going from scratch carrying over to next saga story and development writers already achieved through established character investing in someone they are familiar with and proved to be well received.

    Needless to say i could definitely see interactions between characters becoming more refreshed, lively and embroidered with lot of humor, spontaneous dynamic and drama which Misty strong presence always managed to add.

    She was one of complete, engaging characters who knew how to add spice and liven things up bringing healthy interactions within group and memorable moments capturing emotions and interactions in vibrant, genuine manner.

    As well bringing something new on table with her story which contains more flexibility to take it in any direction compared to traditional or game quests which follow groove and rules made beforehand. Whether its going on quest to advance her skills following Wallace route and compete in water based events similar to Whirl Cup , provide new concept of battling to show in form of underwater battles, taking her down E4 route trying to pass tests and evaluators living up to idol Lorelei, be involved with legendary water types learning how to master and connect with pokemon in deeper manner etc.

    Likwise longer someone is absent only increase hype and excitement when long gone character returns, and after so much time bringing all time favorite like Misty would be fresh twist and change of things bringing something unexpected on table serving as bridge which would connect current series with previous sagas as well giving to group and show more identity recapturing interest for many older fans out there wishing to see her back. Which leads toward increase in ratings, sales and anime reputation bringing mote money on table. Not only because of excitement over popular character being took in new dimensions, but also because it would serve as stepping stone toward bigger changes eventually as mentioned above.

    Yeah i know what you mean, its been so darn long last time we saw her. IM interested in how much she changed, what happened with her life, did she improved as trainer, how she looks and what new pokemon she has.

    If she appears i hope it will be for at least 5 to 7 episodes like May and Dawn returned. Coming back for just one or two episodes after so long(since 2005)would be unsatisfying and pretty underwhelming deserving much more.

    Currently given circumstances and current story Misty could either return during Ash and co adventure on Dekorola islands, if by some miracle expansion from Junior Cup happens in for of Senior cup giving a bit more attention to whole World tournament concept.

    At Pallet when Ash returns home is possibility to, though im most skeptic about this given how last 2 returns at Pallet had nothing giving out how writers don't want to do repeated scenery which already happened once with whole reunion thing.

    By seeing how Ash is going back to Kanto maybe he stops at Cerulean visiting Misty. That would be pretty cool too.

    Call me optimistic, but i wish that Misty joins Ash instead of new girl for 6th generation. That would be amazing and something untried before.

    Hello everyone! I've been so inactive here and I guess I wanna stopped by.

    About her flashback in BW: I was really happy to see her and Brock to have a flashback. I was really happy to see her more and I like how she was redrawn BW style (even though I still like her original version) Seeing her and heard her even in such a little time is really worth watching.

    About the new Ending: Oh My Gee! I just love how everyone was there, old and new friends, and even rivals! I was even more happy when I saw the old gang there and also Misty!It's been a nostalgic thing to watch yet happy to see everyone else in it. I wonder if they are going to have a flashback? XD I just hope to see Misty have her own cameo in BW if ever that is possible.
    If I have any worth, it is to live my LIFE for GOD

    It saddens me to see this place turning into wold with people stopping to come in here, and partially its my fault too for neglecting it due to other obligations and work.
    I wish this club received more love being pity to see it gone way of previous ones.

    Hi, great to see you again! Hope everything is going well for you.

    Yeah i know what you mean ending was really fascinating and amazing. I loved how they gathered all of Ash previous friends, rivals etc holding hands together to form circle of unity and friendship there exists between them. It was such unexpected, pleasant surprise showing how writers still remember them.

    Its also interesting how Misty was only Ash friend showed in original outfit which could have been done on purpose since new kids know her better that way getting familiar with character mostly through reruns of original series in case they watched it. Not to mention she is more iconic and recognizable that way for older generations which don't watch anime consistently too.
    Another interesting detail is that aside from Ash, Misty was showed with most pokemon behind her.

    If they show her in flashbacks of announced Butterfree episode too in speaking role again, i wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be writers way of foreshadowing and preparing young kids for her long awaited return.

    There definitely exist multitude of reasons why Misty could return. She is very popular, many people miss her and her comeback could attract many of older generation fans toward this show increasing ratings, recapture interest from younger generations giving them better understanding in anime history as well go in correlation with BW2 games for further promotion being most iconic gym leader from Kanto saga along with Brock.

    Not to mention her story never really received closure with her water master goal being left unfinished, along with desire to explore new water species becoming recognized by water experts never becoming reality. Added with several things being left unexplored and unanswered about her past,dreams, pokemon and ambitions offering room to be done more.

    Anyhow to shake things up and bring more life and discussion ill start of things with new topic:

    If Misty returns, do you think she might have new outfit and what you picture it could be like?

    Usually when older character returns he receives new clothes, so its definitely possibility. So far we saw Misty in her AG outfit and attire from Luvdisc episode in chronicles as part of her regular clothes.

    In case she gets new clothes i could see her wearing mix of blue and yellow being consisted of perhaps yellow top or shirt with jacket on it, shorts and either sneakers or boots as footwear.

    I imagine her hairstyle would probably stay same, unless sisters somehow persuade her in letting hair down changing look which while i wouldn't mind looking great is doubtful. Beside i like her one sided ponytail look being her trademark by now.

    Maybe, I didn't really like her AG attire that much XD. I'd like to see something water themed not a swim suit XD. Maybe like a shirt and short shorts with sea shells or something all over them. Maybe grow her hair out a little, to like Dawn's length or something

    Don't worry we understand you, and it's not your fault. We just can't avoid those kind of things that comes in our life.

    Its also interesting how Misty was only Ash friend showed in original outfit which could have been done on purpose since new kids know her better that way getting familiar with character mostly through reruns of original series in case they watched it.

    Indeed. She seems to be well known back then in the original series making her appearance like that. Her OS appearance made such a huge impact that even flashbacks were shown..

    If Misty returns, do you think she might have new outfit and what you picture it could be like?

    I could see some little possibility of her having new outfit if ever she returned again in the show.
    I can picture it out with a bluish outfit,with a little red and yellow lining too.

    To Auaria~: Your reasons for joining the club are all valid and let me wish you warm Welcome to Misty club.

    More the merrier i say.

    Yes i definitely know what you mean about Misty personality, its one of best things about her having strong pool of emotions and unique facets to her personality which made her genuinely fun and relatable character.

    I liked how she was spirited having lot of spunk, sense for humor coming up with various jokes and taunts, while showing herself to be sensible and caring girl which had fears and doze of shyness when being in creepy places, talking about love or her abilities when complimented by others having flaws just like real persons in life do making her realistic and deep in characterization.

    Because of that, sense of initiative to move things forward and curious nature often trying out various things wanting to be part of something(whether is beauty contests, entering races, playing role of detective, saving villages etc) she didn't need full fledged out quest and lot of screen time to remain active being possible to feel her presence in majority of original series.

    She played important role paving out way for future generations to come serving as catalyst through which Ash developed as trainer. Her role in pokemon was to provide humor and contribute to good character dynamic by acting like someone who would balance out Ash impulsiveness and naivety and Brock's obsession over girls with her spunky, and timid personality. While having her own plots and issues with family, desire to catch many new water types and become world renowned and strong water pokemon master one day,.

    Which made group feel complete , giving to anime identity(her own signature) and great deal of comedy, playful charm she used to brought into cast making things more lively. Something we lost when she was replaced.

    Welcome Auaria~!

    Yea, we did lose something when Misty was replaced with May. I wasn't mad with the decision that she had became Gym Leader. In a way, it's good for her since she can hone her skills at becoming a better Pokemon Trainer. But, what troubles me is, how do you become a Water Pokemon Master? You would think you would have to become like Wallace. And he's a Top Coordinator and the Pokemon Champion of Hoenn. Maybe you would have to be one with Water Pokemon like being a Dragon Master? It's a shame that it was never explained in the anime. A perfect time to explain it would have been when the gang had arrived at the Whirl Islands and was about to enter the Whirl Cup.

    But, I loved the new ending for Da! Seeing Misty in BW's animation was truly amazing and I cannot wait to see her again. Maybe we'll see her when Ash returns home before he heads out on his next adventure like she did when he returned from Hoenn.

    I believe main reason why many were disappointed with Misty exit was because they didn't really build her up for anything, leaving in half of development without providing conclusion for any plots which surrounded her.
    She had unique story and goal of becoming water master with fresh material waiting to be explored, unique pokemon and established popularity existing potential and prospect to flourish but instead they canned her without much closure leaving much more to be desired. Which was poor and bad move imo.

    As far as her goal goes judging by what we saw in original series is similar to Ash requiring traveling,meeting strong trainers,exploring new regions and learn about pokemon in wild along with advancing it through tournaments.
    I mean for same reason Whirl Cup was introduced as one of such competitions where you can gain more experience,make step forward and prove yourself to others being directly connected/stated with water master quest.. As evidenced through dialogue from prof. Elm they met when registering and sea priestess Maya title of water master means becoming water pokemon expert which has power to understand sea creatures and use them to full potential,being recognized and respected among all water trainers worldwide.

    And just when writers finally started to dive deeper in whole thing by expanding more on whole concept , soon enough they removed Misty from main cast stopping opportunity to explore more on her quest and do follow up through other challenges and tasks she would need to pass shading light on whole thing. See her grow forward as trainer finally forming stable, successful team and being developed to certain degree as more competent, confident character which fulfilled criteria required to go on next level.

    Shame because Hoenn which was ruched with water or Sinnoh which introduced cool new pokemon and water specialists offered so many ways to develop Misty forward and add more substance to her story.

    Becoming water master likely requires to achieve E4 level of skill since they are strongest one type specialists in world being "best mono trainers in world" drawing parallel with Misty desire of becoming strongest water trainer in world. Connection which revealed to exist even more when they met Lorelei back in Orange Islands wit Misty admiring her battling style ad skill in usage of water pokemon being to her idol.

    Assuming Misty still wants to become water master and achieve more than being gym leader i imagine at some point she will leave gym to go on venture to learn things you cant at gym, enter tasks like Whirl Cup showed and become true expert in that field by battling other, more challenging trainers and learn more about water pokemon in wild.

    Something which Wallace as you mentioned did leaving his position to advance as trainer and improve skills resulting in not only becoming Hoenn champion,and master in contests but also one of top trainers which use water type in world.

    But, I loved the new ending for Da! Seeing Misty in BW's animation was truly amazing and I cannot wait to see her again. Maybe we'll see her when Ash returns home before he heads out on his next adventure like she did when he returned from Hoenn.
    I have still some small hopes, but knowing writers its best to keep our expectancy in check not being first time that they disappointed us.

    Its sad really, they opted to give us so much "fanservice" ever since BW2 began but didn't include one of most popular ad iconic characters in this show for who people have waited for years to see her back as evidenced through various petitions, campaigns and visible demand on internet.

    Either writers are ignorant or don't know to recognize chance from which they could increase revenues and bring more fans toward this show.

    I can only imagine how much hype and interest there would be sparked among people if they finally brought Misty back in person, or even went as far bringing her for season or two which would lift up dynamic in cast with her strong characterization and bring dash of fresh air by offering something unpredictable and unseen in sense of following aspiring water trainer advancing and going on bigger, more demanding challenges building on her quest of mastering water type.

    I believe reasoning behind her return would be more original and unpredictable than its case with other companions(like coordinators for example from who we know what to expect), since Misty story and dreams offer several directions through which writers could create sequel and take her forward not having set up paradigm and procedure needs to be followed.
    Something which has yet to be revealed with anime exclusive carers.

    Going on quest to become E4 member or renowned water specialist could definitely provide foundation to make plausible continuation of Misty story with purpose of coming closer toward her dreams while also creating way to fit her within main show again.
    Too bad writers can't recognize good opportunity when it arises rather choosing to constantly add new companions which end up canned unfinished anyway, instead of investing more in previous ones who have potential to offer more and go through more meaningful evolution than newbies could.

    woo, acceptance.~
    --

    I can see her wearing her original outfit, for nostalgia reasons... but if she did change outfits, I can picture her wearing her HGSS outfit. I really do love her bathing suit in HGSS.~ it's so pretty! ^^ maybe if she's being modest, she could wear a beach towel or something over it, but otherwise, just that one piece and flip flops.
    maybe she's change her hairstyle, though. possibly make it longer? I think she'd look good with long hair. (wasn't there scenes with her hair long, or am I remembering something wrong?)
    personality wise, I think she'd be the same tomboy we all love. there would be no reason to change her.

    @~Auaria: Yea Misty looks gorgeous with longer hair really extracting her real beauty on surface. Your right she was definitely showed with long hair quite a few times in anime. It was n Princess festival when wearing kimono where she won princess doll set, in 2Misty Mermaid" when she played underwater ballet and in "Cerulean Blues" from chronicles when dressed as mermaid she tried to calm Gyarados.

    About HGSS outfit Misty indeed looks amazing in that, though im not sure how practical it would be for wearing swimsuit when being on road traveling. Although i suppose she could wear it under clothes.

    In case of coming back her personality would be probably same like it was in Hoenn and chronicles being fiery, snarky, confident and more responsible in more mature way. Judging by her appearances i also noticed she was more playful and tough taking charge when resolving things. Such as defeating colonel Hanson on her own or guiding Max when they got lost in first being like surrogate sister.

    May I join? I'm a huge Misty fan

    I'd like to see her in the luvdisc episode outfit with her original red bag but new shoes since the dark ones from that episode didn't look that great.

    To Misty4ever: Of course you can join, glad to see another member joining club. More people means more fun and persons with who we can discuss and share our own impressions about character we like.

    Like pictures you posted, because Misty outfit from Luvdisc episode is my favorite too. Combination of yellow top and blue shorts suits her well looking great in this outfit. Its sad how we only got to see it for one episode.

    Agree about shoes too looking kinda plain, i find sneakers or boots would have went better with such clothes.

    On different note, there is something i have been wandering for quite awhile. .
    Just as we know Misty was replaced in 2002 already passing 11 years(give or take) after she was removed with many new generations growing with show afterwards.
    But even after all this time judging by various sites, facebook, youtuibe, petitions still being created and heated discuisions this character still sparks lot of interest among fandom and material for speculation being among most liked and iconic characters pokemon series had.

    Bringing me to this question?

    What do you think is main reason behind Misty strong following after all this years?

    One of factors is in being first and original female lead which paved way for future companions and established groundwork with Ash and Brock on which show popularity and story was initiated and build in first place.
    She left legacy behind herself like any original companion did which certainly helps.

    In majority of other popular franchise first group is usually remembered the most never fading away to the point of becoming icons for some anime. We can see that with Yugioh where Yugi, Kaiba amd original crew is still most popular and recognized. Beyblade where Tyson or Kai are most remembered etc.

    She achieved basically iconic status which is something which has postulate to last forever, or as long franchise is alive. Which is something which helps.

    But that's only part of reason judging by people impression they created about character liking her because of peculiar and unique personality having spark to emotions, genuine flaws which made her feel more human and had various sides which made her complete, highly relatable character.

    Her strong characterization allowed to click easily with any one be it friends, villains like TR or various characters they met managing to extract fire and annoyance from others, emotion, or admiration leading to fun, naturalistic and vibrant interactions through her spirited and hotheaded nature.

    Which is one of main reasons she became quickly liked along with dedication of using mostly water type striving to achieve mastery over them, sad background growing without parents being constantly mocked by older sisters and all those things she gave to anime helping Ash to grow, playing role of heroine saving people lives, helping others about problems ad bringing humor and endearing dynamic with her tantrums and various passionate sides on daily basis made her stand out on her own right and bring certain spark to series which people feel was never managed to be replicated with same success afterwards.

    Its fans which are keeping Misty from not ending forgotten through their talks, share of opinions why they like her, fanarts and wishing to see her back in series keeping character alive. So as long there will be people which appreciate Misty character and watched pokemon era when she was still present her, regardless of how writers treat her existence will never be erased.

    I like misty too! Although one thing I've always about her ( Ive been rewatching all the episodes in order ) is for what the timeline of her hair length is it always changing from at her ears, to past her shoulder, at her shoulders, and of coarse the way she always where's it
    What are y'alls thoughts on this (anime and games)

    Hey can I join? Misty is my favourite character in the anime, I've always thought she was awesome because of her hot-headed personality, her design and since she was the original female protagonist. I also think she is the most unique of all female protagonists in the series

    @Retro-Chaos X: You can join, hope you will have fun in here. I definitely agree with you how Misty was most unique out of all female protagonists so far with her highly emotional and flamboyant personality, unique dreams and ambitions of being aspiring water trainer which wanted to master type she likes and interesting, touching background making her relatable and complete character.

    To this day i find it was mistake to get rid of her bringing lot of flavor and identity to anime with her hotheaded, caring and passionate character leaving lot more to be desired regarding her goals, pokemon and aspirations.

    On side note i was thinking about possibility of Ash returning to Pallet town after his journey through Decorola islands finish. Maybe we see Misty there like it happened at end of Hoenn, and it would be welcomed to see her in battle and how much she improved. Perhaps confrontation between her and Ash for old time sake, or joining him on journey through Kalos to catch rare new pokemon, enter tournaments progressing forward in her master career since gym isn't enough and learn from other specialists there.
    Though second part of sentence is more my inner notorious optimist speaking.

    I still cant believe writers missed on opportunity to have Misty return there since its set in Kanto, let alone they also dropped ball with World Cup promoting it through one flimsy Junior cup which resembled anything but event on global basis. There was ton of potential and marketing value which would justify bringing Misty back , introduce her to new generations and have way though which she could improve her trainer skills advancing water master dream. But everything was wasted.
