    I did it already, but i guess in this thread and poll more supporters of other characters came and gave their vote of who they like best. Sometime Misty will win, sometime she will lose in polls depending on number of voters and who comes and vote. Many Misty fans left forums being discouraged and losing hope of Misty ever coming back, showing to be the case with lack of support for her in forums over past few years. After not returning in person for almost 10 years.

    We can only hope that writers will recognize potential, appeal and popularity Misty as charscter holds deciding to soften up their inconsiderate policy and bring her back. Because demand for return is huge, people like her colorful persponality and want to see justice made with her unfinished story.

    Hi there. Just wanted to say that i agree with more or less everything you said in my reply in Misty dreams thread. With reply not being required, and i believe thread served its point very well helping to many who came into that thread and read it to understand what in reality water pokemon master means, what was established in canon about path to walk upon in order to achieve it. Along with clearing out false beliefs circulating around it.

    So continuation may not be needed.

    I just want to say how regarding whole water master thing berng dub edit. Bulbapedia refutes that by mentioning how title water master was brought up in Japanese original version as well. I used to talk about it with fluent Japanese speakers and reputable members Sushi and Adamant(on serebii known as dephender)who know Japanese and one of them lived there. They confirmed how in Japanese version it was several times through episodes stated how Misty wants to become water pokemon master being definitely something writers wrote in scripts and came up with.

    So whatever Dogasu may have said he made mistake, which i presume he corrected or should had by now.

    p.s. By the way all the best in 2015!

    Really , Misty really had a stable goal in Kento ????
    Dude . I'm taking about Kento series because that was the most popular.
    During that time , Misty always say different goal at different time.
    First , She says she wants to be Best at everything . Second , She says she simply want to see the most mysterious Water Pokemon . Third , She say she want learn about Water Pokemon.
    Misty didn't had a Stable Goal until Jotho ! Up until then we just knew her goal has something to do with Water Pokemon.
    Furthermore, She only reveal a name for her Goal in Jotho.
    However , None of us still doesn't know how anyone Water Pokemon Master.
    I mean , If we consider Wallace as a Water Pokemon Master since he obviously most strongest Water Pokemon trainer then that wold Misty challenging the league as a mono Trainer to prove herself a Water Pokemon master.
    Its the by far the best way to be water pokemon master but it require her to be Ash's rival.
    Truth is , Original Kento series didn't gave a dam care about Misty or anybodies Goal . It was just about Ash's goal & Humor.

    Thinking on it, May and Dawn definitely weren't of that stereotype, except when it comes to their character designs. The stereotypes they fit are those of a 10 year old, particularly a 10 year old girl, while Misty was written more as a young teenage girl compared to the two who immediately followed her.

    Remember, they're 10, and they're portrayed with emotions fitting of a 10 year old early on, and are considerably more mature/wise later in their journeys. Unlike Misty, they weren't already trainers when they made their anime debuts, so it's natural they still had some emotional and mental maturity to attain, as, unlike Misty, they weren't out and about on their own adventure. And I don't know about you, but when I was 10, I was a prissy little wimp (as a boy, I might add) and May and Dawn's characters, even in their initial emotional states, would make 10 year old me look like a total wimp. And 10 year olds are frequently obnoxious and whiny. It comes with the territory of being an older child who has some responsibilities and isn't always mentally and emotionally ready for the stress they bring.

    Misty was often depicted as all of those things. I'd pick out examples, but my memory of the Kanto and Johto series is on they hazier side (since, well, it was at the start of my Pokemon marathon and was over 500 episodes of Pokemon ago), and I don't want to sift through nearly 300 episodes to make a point (she gets excessively angry on numerous occasions and it's written off by the other characters as her "being a female," which is sexist writing in and of itself). And you can't tell me that her half-shirt and those short-shorts she wears aren't over-sexualizing her appearance. She's no older than 12, at the oldest, herself. And, remember, every single lead anime girl's design is from the games, even Misty's, so, really, the overly sexualized designs are on the design teams at Game Freak.

    Reading some summaries for May and Dawn while citing just Princess vs. Princess for Misty is, quite honestly, cherrypicking. Unfortunately, they all fit the stereotype if you were to cherrypick negative episodes for all 3 of them. At the same time, none of them fit the stereotype if you cherrypick positive episodes for all 3 of them. Pokemon also has a sea of female Characters of the Day that both do and don't fit that stereotype in every single subseries of the anime, and it really just depends on which of those you choose to highlight that can skew your entire perception of a particular subseries.

    I will concede that Iris and Dawn did have some moments where the writers get lazy, particularly with those obnoxious catchphrases the dub teams gave them: Dawn's "No need to worry!" and Iris's "You're such a kid!", though I'm not sure whether those were in the original Japanese dub or not (I'm pretty sure Iris's was, but I'm not sure on Dawn's). I don't remember any for May or Misty, and Serena doesn't seem to have one yet (which is good, as they kinda get annoying).
