A question that I'm sure many of us can relate to, which battle was easiest? Whitney in Gold, Silver & Crystal or Whitney in Heart Gold & Soul Silver.
I found that in HGSS Whitney's Miltank seemed to be much less vicious, not so much spam on the Rollout and generally easier and at a lower level.

I agree. In HGSS it was so much easier. In GSC to me it was one of the hardest pokemon ever to beat, its defense and rollout spelled doom for my team.

The originals definitely; there was no hacked moves and didn't have an ability that let it hit ghosts.

I was just thinking about this the other day! Lol Ya I found her far tougher in GenII. Once she got a couple Rollouts down she took everything she hit.

Course I was much younger back then and didn't know enough to prepare for her...

HGSS was easier, however neither never really gave me too much trouble. I'm usually always pretty over level so it wasn't too bad haha.

HG/SS for me since I didn't play G/S/C and I was sorta overleveled when I took her on.

G/S/C Miltank is powerful! ... or you lose, or have a long battle to win...
HG/SS ...rsrs' Miltank is a common poke.

I didn't find it particularly hard either time, but she was certainly a lot less prominent about spamming Rollout in HGSS so I'm gonna go with the Gen II games as being harder :p

Since I found Whitney's Miltank to be equally as easy to beat in both games (I used Geodude to beat her in both games), I'm gonna go with GSC being the easier one because the HGSS Miltank can hit Ghosts.

Wanna know how to take out Whitney's Miltank easily in any of them? Choose Cyndaquil and catch you a Mareep. You wanna have Flaaffy and Quilava both around level 24 but have 2 other Pokemon to sacrifice lol. When you send out your first Pokemon take out Clefairy and when she sends out Miltank use Growl with Flaaffy until it can't drop no more. Her stomp will be useless. Then send out Quilava and keep using Leer until it don't drop no more and then use Flame Wheel and shes gone with 1 hit. She may use Attract if both of your Pokemon are male so switch them out using Growl and Leer as your first move. That's how I beat her. I'ts time consuming but easier in the long run. So I'd have to say neither.

This wont work in GSC because leer lowers defense and Flame Wheel was special in gen 2.

Defiantly HGSS was easier, as soon as I got the game i was dreading that battle.
Mostly because I was intimidated by the original GSC battle.
I got to the HGSS battle and it was a breeze.

Let me just put it this way: I remember and raged at Whitney's Miltank in GSC for a few battles. In HGSS, Miltank wasn't worth remembering, and I moved on pretty fast.

It was easier in HGSS. I remembered that in GSC, it was really hard to beat, and I had trouble with it. While in HGSS, not at all, I KOed it so easily. I didn't expect that at all, since I remembered a so strong Pokémon but nope, that time it wasn't that tough

HG/SS was definitely the easier option for me. For some reason her Miltank just wasn't that devastating as it was in GSC. It was still hard with its deadly Rollout but somehow it wasn't as deadly. Yay for Bayleef being bulky. n__n Or maybe it's because you could trade idk

I would lie if I said, it's easier on HGSS...I mean, of course I was just a mere boy, when I fought against her Miltank on the original one and really had no strategy. Thinkin' back on it now...There are ways to stop Rollout. Like catching a Drowsee and using Disable once it start doing it.

If your level close to her Miltank, then the rollout won't be instance KO strong, till it reach it's third or fourth roll. Or also, Hypnosis with a Gastly could be helpful, sleeping will cause a reset to Rollout, once it awake.

I actually found her harder on HGSS. Scrappy was just straight BS. It's get a stab boost with Stomp and is pretty much faster than ANYTHING in your party. Flinching EVERYTHING!

And using a Drowsee or a Gastly is actually pointless...God, it was so FUXIN' cheap.
-__- I hate Whitney on bother versions HG/SS and G/S/C

Definitely HGSS. I blasted through it with a Nidoran whereas in GSC I remember struggling.

Well sweeties, I would say HGSS was easier, mostly I knew who I was facing, her Pokémon's levels were lower, and she didn't seem to use Roll Out as much for me.

Well I don't really remember much about GSC, I was really young when I played them... but I'd assume HGSS seeing as I wasn't very good at games back then.

I would say that I actually knew what I was doing by the time 4th generation rolled around haha. So I did level up my Pokemon more and knew how to handle the gym leaders, Whitney included.

She's only difficult for newcomers and children. I always had problems when I battled her when I was a kid. Last time I played Silver, she stood no chance. And all I did was use Croconaw's Rage. But I'd say that GSC was more difficult because the game evolved after that.

This, pretty much. I remember having such bother with it in Gold (in fact, I think it took me about a month to get past it!), but in SoulSilver I got through first time.
