  • The trio splits up tearfully

    That was it. After 5 years of trying to become the best Pokemon Trainers, Ash, Misty, and Brock finally decide to split up. Misty's sisters won a contest so she needs to watch their gym while they're out. And Brock left because he had to do various stuff for his family and do errands. Misty's bike is repaired and gets it back, aaaaand they're gone and separated. The water works came when they left. It was a bit funny however when Misty said "Well, Ash Ketchum, finally, I know how you feel about me", since that's a hint of PokeShipping.moreless
  • f*ck you gengar1993

    this was das worst episode ever

    all misty haters must be extermineted

    Okay, so I like this episode because Misty finally goes away !!! She got her stupid bike back and said good-bye with her weak Water Pokemon and annoying Togepi ! That's just great. What's even better : No PokeShipping !! Alright, Misty might have a slight crush on Ash but Ash only shows pure friendship ! Take that, PokeShippers !! Ash didn't say anything deep to Misty, he didn't give her his hat and didn't show any signs of anything more than friendship ! Which means PokeShipping has been doomed all along ! And I must say I do dislike May but compared to Misty she's tolerable.moreless
  • Misty is my favorite character

    to gengar1993:

    Ummmm Misty's water pokemon aren't weak...

    Is that howcome in the episode "A togepi mirage" no one could beat the kernel, except Misty??

    And togepi isn't annoying..It's cuutee.

    Btw in the episode navel manuevers Ash was extremely jealous by the way Misty acted towards Danny and ignored him...

    And pokeshipping isn't dead, It's alive and doing well..


    Misty was the best character...

    I cried for this episode.(sadest episode in tv history!...)

    God, I hope she comes back :l

    But I did hear a rumor that they are bringing her back,

    But then again I heard another rumor they're not bringing her back (I hope that's wrong though..)

  • Misty, Ash and Brock part ways in this tear-jerking episode. Misty finaly recives the new bike Ash promiced. But she felt that Ash didn't like her. In the end, they all admited to being the best of friends. Not a really good summary...moreless

    It was one of the best episodes in the series! WAAAAAA!! Why did Misty have to leave the series and be replaced with a different girl*whisper, May*? This was one of the worst decisions on the pokemon company's part! The episode really tied the things together and was well constructed. I also liked all the pokeshipping-ness of it. Pokeshipping is the best in my opinion. It's hard not to like Misty after this episode! When Ash and Misty are reassuring each other, Brock's outburst was kind of random... that's the only thing I didn't like. All and all an excellent episode I will always remember! :-Dmoreless
