Title: Re: JOHTO 35: Waninoko wa daremono!? Satoshi VS Kasumi!/ワニノコ...
While I liked Totodile with Ash, its because of this that Misty never gets a starter pokemon in the history of the series.
Ash, May, Dawn and Brock all received starter pokemon at some point, but since Ash got both Squirtle and Totodile, Misty never got any water starter.
Come to think of it, Misty only makes one capture over the entire span of Johto, which is her Corsola. Its really odd that the writers never bothered developing Misty's team much, not to mention her Horsea that was just left behind and never amounted to anything.
Its a shame when you think of all the wasted potential from the earlier seasons of the anime, especially in regards to the lack of screentime for Misty in general.
