Who do you think was harder?

I know most people will say Whitney and her Miltank, but Jasmine's Steelix was much more of a challenge for me, as I didn't choose Cyndaquil that often.

[SIZE="a"]Whitney is tough, but Jasmine's Steelix is really highly leveled. Even though I usually pick Cyndaquil Jasmine is a much harder battle because her Steelix knows Rock Throw.[/SIZE]

In terms of difficulty, Whitney with her Miltank because.. well I think we all know the answer to that.

This is...random. lol I always have a Fire type, so Jasmine has never been that hard for me. But I don't always have trouble with Whitney either. I'll just go ahead and say Whitney I guess. I like Jasmine better though because she makes the - clang! - Steel type sound awesome.

Seems random, but they seem to be the two hardest. I was kinda curious :3

I'd have to say Jasmine as well, mainly because of that damn Steelix. To defeat Whitney, I always just traded a Drowzee for a Machop in one of the houses in Goldenrod, meaning the battle was always very simple.

For me, Whitney's Miltank. I never really had any problems with Jasmines Steelix.

Whitney was easily the greater challenge for me on both Silver and Soul Silver at the time, only when I spammed Growl and Tail Whip did I stand a chance of beating that Miltank with my Onix after sacrificing my Noctowl and Furret. Jasmine was notable though but I had Typhlosion to deal with her thankfully.

Gotta love the high life.

They were both tough opponents, but I have to go with Whitney and her darn Miltank and Rollout! I mean, Jasmine and her Steelix were a challenge, but yeah. I always chose Cyndaquil (apart from Crystal where I chose Chikorita, but I'm not up to Whitney yet) so Jasmine wasn't too much of a problem.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I'd have to say Whitney and her Miltank were more difficult because of her abusing Milk Drink and Stomp flinch hax. Jasmine's Magnemite are often annoying to deal with as well with STAB Thunderbolt and Thunder Wave, I normally have a Water type by then, so Steelix is easier.

Whitney's Miltank all the way, sweeties. However for me, I think it was just bad luck. She used Attract and Rollout, and the infactuation ALWAYS kicked in, and Rollout ALWAYS hits, and you know what happens continuously connects. -.-

I lost to a little girl with pink hair using a pink cow, thus making her my favorite gym leader! XD

With Whitney, you could only get like one fighting Pokemon to easily trump Miltank. With Jasmine, you could have Water, Fire, Ground, or by then a larger pool of fighting Pokemon to choose from. So I always thought Jasmine was easier.

I'd say Whitney was harder than Jasmine, especially with her Miltank and its frequent use of Attract and Rollout. Then again, Jasmine is pretty close, with her Steelix.

Whitney and her Miltank. I had to start again many times before beating her, while Jasmine never gave me any trouble, really. I even think she was one of the easiest gym leader.

Hmmm... unless I have Geodude, I always have trouble with Miltank, and unless I have Ampharos (with Fire Punch) or Feraligatr I always have trouble with Steelix. I'd say Steelix is a smidge more difficult, if only because fire types get hit hard by Steelix' Rock Throw and Ground types get annihilated by Iron Tail, whereas Miltank's main strategy can be stopped more easily by just using Smokescreen or Thunder Wave.

Anyway, we all know that generally, Clair's Kingdra is the hardest Gym Leader.

It's always Miltank that gets me whenever I replay my Gold version. Even if I don't start with Cyndaquil, I'll usually have a Fire-type (preferably Arcanine) by the time I fight Jasmine. With Whitney, though, it is always a daunting task fighting against her.

Whitney almost never gave me trouble, except when she spammed Milk Drink. Other than that, she wasn't too bad, I guess. The same goes for Jasmine, because I always packed Cyndaquil or Totodile, and they both have type advantages, so she wasn't that bad either. But I voted for Jasmine because I like her better, and her Steelix can actually do damage on me, while Whitney was more of a pain to battle because of how durable that Miltank is.

WHITNEY is easy as pie, I mean, get a well trained GEODUDE, and she's done like dinner.

JASMINE is easy as long as your have a decent fire type to melt her metal. Or heavy-duty Ground-type. Water works too.

I'd say Whitney, partly because I found her Miltank far more difficult to dispose of than Jasmine's Steelix. Although, if you managed to obtain a Machop and trained it properly, both Whitney and Jasmine would be a walk in the park.

Jasmine was usually a challenge, though she wasn't as move abusing and spamming as Whitney. I mean, Jasmine wasn't super hard as long as you had a decent Fire, Ground or Fighting type Pokémon, though Whitney on the other hand was tough as a nail unless you had a Pokémon with Fighting type moves or if your Pokémon high-leveled, female and had some strong moves, because Clefairy spamming Attract as well as her Miltank spamming you with Stomp making you flinch all the time and healing itself with Milk Drink were both just really hard to beat.

So I'd definitely say Whitney, just because I've always had a much harder time beating her than Jasmine.

I never really found either of them to be that challenging, whether through pokemon choice or moves, I dunno. But really, I'd have to say Whitney and her Miltank.

It was tough to choose, but you can easily lower Miltank's stats without suffering too much but as for Steelix, everyone fainted except my Feraligatr!
