Kasumi (カスミ renamed Misty in English dubs) is the Cerulean City Gym Leader, and one of Ash Ketchum's former travelling friends in the Pokémon series.
Kasumi is the younger sibling of the Cerulean City Gym Sisters, However unlike her sisters, no one knew who she was. One day, while out fishing, she encountered Ash as he 'borrowed' her bike to flee from a flock of Spearow, but her bike was destroyed by Pikachu's electricity, which not only scared the Spearow but also destroyed her bike. Ever since then Kasumi, had been traveling with Ash, sometimes reminding him to pay for her bike, but at the end of the Johto League arc Kasumi discovered that a Nurse Joy had repaired her bike and that her sisters appointed her as Gym Leader of the Cerulean City Gym. She is also known to be the first female companion to wear shoes with no socks.
