Misty is the youngest of four sisters that live at the Cerulean Gym, at age 10 she became fed up with her vanity-obsessed sisters and started to travel the world aiming to become the world’s greatest Water Pokémon Trainer. She met up with Ash and traveled with him through the Kanto region as well as the Orange Archipelago and the Johto Region.

Overall: A nostalgic 8.5

Paint Job – 7
The paint job is not bad. Great choice of colours. It brings forth that authentic original Pokémon anime series feel.

Sculpting – 8
The sculptor made Misty, Togepi and Psyduck look as if they just stepped out of the anime. Great work.

Design – 10
The design was really put together well. The figurines ooze the ‘spirit of Pokémon’ many of us grew up with.

Display Worth – 9
While Pokémon is not everyone’s cup of tea, these figurines will definitely end up in a pokémon fanatik’s private collection.
