Top 10 Best Video Game Girlfriends

09. Misty / Kasumi (Pokemon)

Mostly due to the incredible measure of positive reinforcement and immediate gratification to be found in the Pokemon universe, the popularity of the games, then the TV show, and finally the movies is such that no explanation is necessary when a gamer declares their like of the series.

Of all the female characters - and there are a surprising number - while Nurse Joy and Officer Jenny tend to score high on the list for your typical guy's guy, when you are judging your potential girlfriend by a more complete picture, the sometimes Gym Leader, full-time companion known as Misty always comes out the clear choice.

Ignoring for the moment that she is a redhead, that she is very attractive, has a pleasing personality and, in her own way, a unique sex appeal, what gives Misty her strong lead among the girls of Pokemon has more to do with her spirit and her spiritual essence.

Professionally Misty is still the Gym Leader of Cerulean City - at least she is with respect to the worlds that are found in the video games spanning Red, Blue, Yellow, FireRed, Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Specializing in Water-type Pokemon, despite having opted to become a traveling companion of future World Pokemon Master and Champion Ash Ketchum, Misty remains a well-respected member of the Pokemon Gym Leader fraternity - a fact that is demonstrated by her being chosen as one of the gym leaders for the Pokemon World Tournament in both Black and White 2!

While she willingly takes on a rather mother-like role in the relationship dynamic of Ash-Brock-Misty, in truth she is far from the stereotype that the role suggests - a fact that is well illustrated in the anime by her well-rounded personality.

While she is nurturing she also has strong opinions, intense emotions, and is likely to explode into rage when pushed past her point of tolerance!

The most important element to her character - and the crucial difference that distinguishes Misty from the rest (and makes her a desirable girlfriend) is her commitment to being true to herself, and her refusal to sacrifice what she views as the essential elements that represent her.

From her interests to her femininity to her open sexuality, she delivers a more complete package of woman than thought possible for a character who spans multiple genres of entertainment, from TV to Movies and of course, Video Games!

So yeah, we would totally date her!
