As aspiring young trainer which went on quest to become water pokemon master Misty collected several water pokemon. Some during her travels, some while leaving to take care of gym when sisters went on world cruise.
Here you can list your favorite pokemon of hers and what attracted you toward them in first place.
Here is my list:
Gyarados:i mean who doesn't like this giant blue snake.I liked when Misty was able to tame it earning his respect being sad and touching when she almost sacrificed her life to save it from Tentacrul in Cerulean Blues taking poison sting and tackle.
It is definitely her powerhouse having cool move-pool with knowledge of powerful attacks like hyperbeam or flamethrower making him formidable opponent.
Staryu:i just love how flexible ad skilled this pokemon is.He is one of Misty strongest pokemon being used often in battles showing to have impressive agility and remarkable resistance as swimmer.
One of his best moments was in third movie where he completely negated Mantine whirlpool and bubblebeam being on pair in strength despite Molly pokemon being powered up.
Misty also showed to have strong bond with Staryu caring alot,like when she apologized for pushing him too hard in battle against Ash for Totodile.
Corsola:because she is one of aces in Misty team having great move-pool from mirror coat and recover for defense to spike cannon or bubble to go on offensive.Being partially rock also brigs diversity to her pokemon team having access to different techniques.
Psyduck:he is absolutely hilarious and extremely dense but that is what makes him unique.I always liked Misty antics with yellow duck getting on her nerves but also showing to deeply care for her pokemon whenever he got lost.Chemistry between Misty and Psysduck has always been great and special and when he gets headache he is able to knock down most of opponents with just one single blow with confusion being outstanding. I remember Dorian from Johto commented once how he never saw such strong Psyduck.
