32 Reasons Misty From "Pokémon" Is The Very Best

Unlike Ash, she's like no one ever was.

Posted on

1. She became a gym leader at the age of ten.

Cartoon Network

Misty grew a lot as a water trainer in her journey with Ash and Brock, granting her the skills to become the Cerulean Gym Leader at such a young age.

2. She is smart.

Cartoon Network

...even if no one else is. Brock, you're supposed to be training to be the best Pokémon breeder, and you don't know what Venonat's evolved form looks like?

3. She faces her fears head-on.

Cartoon Network

Even if that means running through a forest with disgusting bugs.

4. She has the makings of a great mother.

Cartoon Network

One look at Togepi will tell you that any of her future kids would adore her.

5. She is the queen of sass.

Cartoon Network

6. No one is immune to her wit.

Cartoon Network

Misty Waterflower, embarrassing people since 1998.

7. She knows when to walk away.

Cartoon Network

And leave Ash with the bill, for that matter.

8. Under her tough exterior is her soft side.

Cartoon Network

Usually reserved for water Pokemon. Or Paris.

9. Even though she's not the greatest cook, she still tries her hardest.

Cartoon Network

C'mon, Ash, how could you say no to that face?

10. Even a little fire won't stop her.

Cartoon Network

11. She won't let anyone put her down.

Cartoon Network

That includes the likes of one Ash Ketchum.

12. She'll risk her life for someone else.

Cartoon Network

Ash Ketchum, you wouldn't be saving the world if it weren't for Misty saving your butt all the time.

13. She's the brains of the operation.

Cartoon Network

Hey, remember that time she single-handedly got all of her friends released from jail? Enough said.

14. She is the master of disguise.

Cartoon Network

It also gives her the ability to see through the disguises of others, unlike her male counterparts.

15. Yelling is one of her strong suits.

Cartoon Network

Sometimes, you just have to let it all out.

16. She has her priorities sorted out.

Cartoon Network

Ash may think that Pokémon is the most important thing in the world, but he'd be wrong.

17. She is a compassionate person.

Cartoon Network

She cares about her Pokémon, especially when they are hurting, even in the face of an insensitive Ash.

18. She has a sly disappearing act.

Cartoon Network

The girl can literally sink into the ground.

19. She's not afraid to show her emotions.

Cartoon Network

20. She never let Psyduck stop her.

Cartoon Network

It's surprising that she never murdered this monstrous headache.

21. She's an expert fisherman.

Cartoon Network

She did catch the love of her life, after all.

22. She does what she has to do.

Cartoon Network

Whether it's for herself or a person in need, Misty is willing to do whatever it takes to make things right again.

23. She holds everyone accountable.

Cartoon Network

Ash should think twice about lying to her because it's only going to make matters worse.

23. She's a fantastic swimmer.

Cartoon Network

Look at how effortlessly she dances with Seel. Perfection.

24. She knows how to put Ash in his place.

25. She has awesome sisters to help her in need.

Cartoon Network

Sure, Misty complains about her older sisters a lot, especially earlier on in the show, but you know that they care about our heroine. After all, she was essentially raised by them, and they will always help her in times of need.

26. Her medical skills are unmatched.

Cartoon Network

I mean, just look how awesome her patient care is -- and with no prior experience!

27. She never backs down from a fight.

Cartoon Network

Unfortunately for Brock...

28. She's not ashamed to eat whatever she wants.

Cartoon Network

29. She keeps up on her exercise routine.

Cartoon Network

While looking fabulous, I might add.

30. She races like a goddess.

Cartoon Network

Her Starmie is literally flying.

31. She tries to hide her feelings for Ash...

Cartoon Network

We all know she cares about him more than she lets on; showing it would give him power over her, and she can't have that.

...except when another girl comes into the picture.

Cartoon Network

No one is going to steal her guy away. No. One.

32. And most importantly, she doesn't rest until she gets what she wants.

Cartoon Network

She will have her bike back, damn it!

Bow down to Queen Misty!
