I got my growlithe to use leer 3/4 times and then switched to Croconaw and ice fang'd it twice. If you have leer it really helps with this battle!

I used the power of Ekans, and Bayleef, and Chinchou.
T-Wave and Confuse Ray for Chinchou
Reflect for Bayleef
Then Screech for Ekans and finished off with Ekans.

Pretty easy really, I had more trouble with Bugsy.

She was easier then I remember on the original Gold, purely because I grinded my whole team up to Level 20 to make sure I didn't lose.

I tried out Noctowl first to try and hypnotise her but the Miltank had the berry that automatically woke it back up. I then tried Reflect but she managed to knock Noctowl out straight away. So Instead I went with Furret and Rock smash. Luckily each time it hit, Miltank's defense went down so after three hits she was done.

Let's see here. I'm pretty sure that all I kept using was Rock Smash with my Geodude for Miltank. Don't remember much about battling Clefairy, but I think I used my Bayleef.

I went to battle whitany..and my quilava quickly burned out her clefairy with his flamethrower( bred on my Platinum) now the miltank used arract on quilava who fell in love miltank and then wouldn't attack the miltank.

she knocked out my quilava, bayleaf( bred on platinum), croconaw and then I sentout my only female lv.15 pidgey who knocked her out with her gust.

Rollout with Sandslash LOL.
I had her on the ropes. She kept having to heal while my roll out kept getting stronger until eventual it just annihilated her.

I beat her in one using my Linoone and Swinub.

I found Morty harder to be honest.

I found Miltank quite easy to beat. :\ Then again, I had a hJeracross with Brick Break, so i just spammed Brick Break several times and I won easily. :3 I'm finding Morty harder at the moment (I think I even found Bugsy harder to beat than Whitney. :O)

I have you say that it was a little disappointing. Despite the fact that I hate it when I get creamed, I was hoping she would prove as much a challenge as always. Even when I play G/S/C on my emulator, she's still very difficult for me to beat. Soul Silver, it was easy I couldn't believe it. Sure, the attract was annoying, but that's all Miltank was. I was expecting it to be tough, but it was just a nuisance. =|

Haven't got that far yet, but am worried....

Bugsy's Scyther got my Pidgey down to 1 health, after it being healed again while Geodude distracted (suicide switch-in), AND having took down Quilava.Thank god it's Jolly, Quick Attack saved my ass, and I expected a Heracross....but luckily it was just 2 weak pokes.

So, with Whitney's rep, I'm screwed!!!

I have to thank my lucky stars that Nidorino has Double Kick I used Poison Sting like 4 times until it was poisoned, then it used it's stupid berry, and then it stomped and got poisoned by poison point. Stupid Miltank >;D

Then I double kicked it about 4 times, then I heard the most annoying text ever...

"Leader Whitney used one Super Potion!"


I used about 8 super potions and she uses one. Sigh.

I did struggle a little against Miltank in the original Gold/Silver/Crystal games (never to the point of a loss, though), but in this one all I did was send in Rocky (that one guy's Onix you can trade for) and that's pretty much it. It took everything it had to throw at it pretty easily. I always prepare to be many levels over whatever the next Gym has, though, so that obviously helped. xP

Though I did hear a lot of hype about how difficult it was going to be, so I kinda feel like I ruined a challenge for myself. xP Oh well, it's all far in the past now.

:< She beat my Quilava and Togepi about 10 times by using attract -> Rollout. Clefairy was... it was just there, I killed it with one attack.
When I finally beat her, it was when I was singing the Team Rocket song.
So, that's how I beat her, by singing the Team Rocket song. /proud

Quilava Lv. 30: Flame wheel. Miltank: Stomp

Cue 5 Flame Wheel/Milk Drink combo

Miltank: Attract. Switch Quilava out, filler Lv. 10 Pidgey in. Miltank: Milk Drink. Stomp. Pidgey KO.

Sent Quilava back out. Flame Wheel- critical hit. Miltank: Stomp.

Whitney: Super Potion. Quilava: Flame Wheel. Miltank: Stomp.

Quilava: Flame Wheel. Miltank down!

My team:
Quilava Lv 18
Togepi Lv 18
Raticate Lv 20
Flaafy Lv 18
Machop Lv 10
After taking out her Clefairy with Raticate's Hyper Fang, I switched to Flaffy. First Turn: Thunder Wave. Succeeding turns: Growl until Miltank's Attack cannot be lowered anymore.

Then, I send out Togepi. Metronome: Swagger: Confused plus sharply increased Attack. (Insert Facepalm Smiley Here)

Then, Raticate. Hyper Fang. Normal STAB.

But then, Miltank used Attract, so I had to switch to Lv 10 Machop. Luckily, Thunder Wave and -4 Attack (which should have been -6) helped out. Machop kept on using Rock Smash to lower Miltank's defense so that Raticate can take it down later on, but then, Machop managed to take it down.

I claimed my victory on my 3rd attempt.

first time playing through, i used quilava (garbage pokemon)
lost the first time.
tried again, dont really know how I did it.. lots of flame wheel I suppose magically got past the "loving miltank"

Second game was easier.. EV trained chikorita from the beginning. PWNED, I had a meganium by the time I got to her, lvl 35 if I recall correctly. Whitney didn't stand a chance.

I had to switch between my two main pokemon(both are male) because they kept falling in love with it. Then, I used Rock Smash on it after quickly putting up an X Attack. I then set it up in Paralysis and just hoped. It used its berry, and then I redid the debuff on it. My first attempt failed but the second time, I did it just by a hair. Rock Smash happened to hit Critical before Whitney could use a Super Potion or her pokemon could use Milk Drink.

I completely forgot about this issue. I haven't played Crystal in four years, and suddenly playing HG is driving me insane with fun, yet admittedly, after this leader I had to take an hour break before continuing.

Thank you for reminding me what her Miltanks other 2 moves were (Attract and Milk Drink) because she didn't use those moves once when i battled her!
I do remember in the original gold that she was the one gym leader i feared due to that Miltank but now in this newer version, maybe cause i am older now or stupid AI or something, it wasn't as hard as i was expecting.
She did use rollout and after thinking "Here comes the pain", she didn't follow it up with another rollout. It kinda made me sad to see that one of the hardest gym leaders of the past (IMO) had become...just a normal gym leader. XP

I did use Croconaw so that may be the reason she did not use rollout all the time since it isn't super effective. In original Gold my starter was Cyndaquil.

i used my noctowl to slowly take care of her clefairy so that she would waste a superpotion on it (didnt know she had 2 ><).
then i used noctowl to do reflect and use my nidorino to double kick her to death also she got poisoned while atacking me but she ended up healing.
so i had to finish it with my croconow.

I got pretty superduper lucky beating Whitney. Only took one try and one revive, I think; Miltank got my Butterfree in one rollout.
