Recent Coro Coro pictures have shown that Kasumi (Misty) is to return to the anime permanently in episode 40 of Best Wishes. Her voice actor has expressed her delight in the return of her character.
“To be honest, I’ve been waiting a really long time to get back into voice acting. Now I have the chance to voice Kasumi again, and I think it’ll be a lot of fun!”
An episode title has also been announced:
BW40 – Sudden return! Vs Kasumi!
It appears she also has a new Pokemon traveling with her. Hmm.
