Like the original Blue/Red games, Misty is the gym leader here for the 2nd gym. I didn’t know until much later than 1998, that Misty was her name in English. In Japan, her name is Kasumi which translates as “mist” in English. I guess I will forgive them for that one. It’s also a pun on a flower name, for which all the Kanto leaders in Japanese are named after.
Anyway, her gym is much more pretty than I remember. The blue swimming pool doesn’t look the same as it did in black and white 2D graphics. But like the last time, you have to defeat a few of her swimmers to get to the gym leader herself.
Misty’s specialty is water-type pokemon (duh) but none of them were that difficult to me.
Until I got to her best pokemon, Starmie. Even my Pikachu had a difficult time against it. Though I should have leveled my Pikachu up to match her pokemon.
But in the end, it was mostly easy. And you get the Cascade Badge when you defeat her.
