I'm afraid you're right. If only there were something interesting for her to do... the Whirl Cup was an interesting arc because Misty and Ash got to compete, and she had more of a part, but they couldn't just do that again. I've been trying to think of something, but... She's not maturing much just being a gym leader, either, though. It helped her some at first, but she said herself that she wanted to travel the world and learn all she could about water Pokemon. She's kind of stuck now.I'd prefer it if May came back full time rather then Misty. Don't get me wrong I like both of them alot but to me it seems Misty is better off as a Gym leader rather then travling around with Ash.
Frankly Misty would just devlove back to her boring Johto status where she was on the show more to fill space then actually DO anything intresting most of the time. At least with May you have the prospect of contests.
First two reasons are good but the other two are just bias. Second to star in a movie? How? What about Brock? Max? Misty?Originally posted by Kataphrut
