In Crystal the first time I beat her, watching her cry just made it more annoying.
When I made it through the first time without my game erasing itself, it was probably the toughest battle in the game before post game. Jasmine was the second hardest because she had earthquake and not rockslide. --- "Hello, um, you..." That akward moment where, after talking to someone every day, you still don't remember their name.
Whitney is pretty much the definition of a girly-girl stereotype.
*She only got into Pokémon because "everybody else was doing it", since most girls are suckers for trends.
*Her Gym, Trainers, and Pokémon are specifically chosen to be as girly as possible (Clefairy, Snubble, Meowth, and Jigglypuff). As for her Miltank, it's not hard once you know the trick: fight defensively instead of trying to sweep.
*She gets upset easily when she loses and then cries her eyes out like any stereotypical girl would, but she is still a good sport and happily hands out the Badge once she calms down (unlike Clair the Dragon Brat).
Whitney's Miltank is one of the toughest pokemon in the game. There. I said it. Definitely the toughest gym leader. --- "Hello, um, you..." That akward moment where, after talking to someone every day, you still don't remember their name.
