Hi! I'm Whitney! Everyone was into Pokémon, so I got into it too! Pokémon are super-cute! You want to battle? I'm warning you-I'm good!

–Whitney, Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal.

Whitney (Japanese: アカネ Akane) is the Goldenrod City Gym Leader. She specializes in using Normal-type Pokémon.

Appearance

Whitney is a young girl, probably in her mid-teens. She has pink hair, usually pulled into two ponytails, and two small yellow barrettes help hold it back. Her eyes are a light pink, matching her hair color and overall personality. She is shown wearing a white shirt, with red strips over the end of the sleeves and down the middle, and long black and blue striped socks that nearly cover her entire shins. Her shoes are the same red and white pattern as her shirt. 

Personality

Whitney has a energetic, chaotic personality. She is very kind, but also loud and cocky. It is shown that when a trainer defeats her, she breaks down and cries, showing weakness in her as well. But, she usually returns after her breakdown to give the trainer their earned badge, showing that she also respects the battle and her duty as a gym leader. 

Biography

Games

Whitney only recently started training Pokémon and was so talented she was given the position of Gym Leader by the Pokémon League, despite her inexperience as a Trainer and slight immaturity (such as leaving the Gym to go to the Radio station to win a Radio Card and crying after she loses). When defeated, Whitney will start crying and will not give the Gym Badge. If the player walks away, a trainer will tell you to talk to her. After Whitney stops crying, she will give the Plain Badge and TM45 (Attract).

Whitney and Morty

Whitney first appeared when Ash, Misty and Brock were lost in Goldenrod City. At first glance Whitney is a kind girl, but she can be klutzy and ditzy sometimes, getting lost in her own town as an example. However, in battle she is quite formidable, especially with her Miltank.

Season 5: Master Quest

When Team Rocket stole Ash's badges, Ash remembered his fights with the Johto Gym Leaders, as his Pokémon were responsible for winning those badges.
