Whitney is a character appearing in Pokémon Adventures, who is the Gym Leader of Goldenrod City in the Johto region.


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.

Gold & Silver arc

She wears a white shirt with pink stripes on on the sleeves ends and down the middle with two yellow triangles to the left of her chest. She wears short white shorts with black socks reaching her shins and sneakers matching her shirt, albeit with a blue strap and triangle on the sides. She also wears a sports bra under her shirt, and a red sweatband on her right arm.

Crystal arc

Whitney's appearance remains unchanged from Gold & Silver arc.

While visiting Mahogany Town's Gym, Whitney wears a winter jacket.

HeartGold and SoulSilver

Whitney is shown wearing a white shirt with red stripes over the end of the sleeves and down the middle with gold buttons, denim shorts and long black and blue striped socks that nearly cover her entire shins. Her right arm has a red wristband and her shoes have the same red and white pattern as her shirt.


Whitney has a more exuberant and arrogant personality than her game counterpart, as shown when she challenges Gold to a bicycle race around Cherrygrove City.


Gold & Silver arc

Whitney was recording a session at the Radio Tower with DJ Mary, when Gold bursted in. He noticed a Smeargle sitting on the bench besides Mary, as Whitney berated him for interrupting their recording. When the manager got angry at the two of them, Whitney directly blamed the commotion on Gold, while he did the opposite. As reports flooded in with positive reviews of the broadcast, Whitney was ecstatic that things worked out so well. She instantly hounded on Gold, stating that she was the one who gave Smeargle to Mary, and the two began to bicker again. The manager alleviated the situation, announcing that Whitney and Gold would race one another from Cherrygrove City to the National Park and back. Whitney proclaimed that she would win the race for Mary, as Gold told her to stop bragging. As the manager signaled Whitney and Gold to get ready, she used her Miltank's Rapid Spin attack to knock Gold off balance. When Gold accused her of cheating, Whitney informed him that there was no pre-ordained rule that said Pokémon were not allowed to be used.[1]

Whitney shot ahead, with Gold in close pursuit. However, Whitney came across a huge tree blocking the route, and the TV crew informed her that they couldn't bypass it. Whitney expressed her anger that Gold would catch up to her, taking it out on the crew. Frustrated with waiting, Whitney ordered her Miltank to attack the tree with Tackle, but the tree was able to withstand the attack. She was surprised at this, as Gold attempted to attack with his Exbo. Suddenly, the ground began to shake, as a giant Rhydon appeared and kidnapped Whitney. Gold used the Sudowoodo to attempt a surprise attack on the Rhydon, which successfully pried Whitney from its grip. However, in the fall, Whitney broke her arm. When they returned to the Goldenrod Radio Tower, Gold proclaimed himself as the victor, which prompted Whitney to state that she would win, if they ever held a rematch.[2]

Professor Elm explained to Gold he researched the metal particles Gold's Aibo had when it scratched Masked Man's mask. Elm found out the mask was made of the material the Gym Badges are made of, including Whitney's Plain Badge.[3]

Whitney and the crew from the Goldenrod Radio Tower came to Mahogany Gym. Once she stepped inside the Gym, Whitney and others began to slide, since the floor was made of ice. To stop themselves, Whitney's Miltank stomped on the floor. The Gym Leader, Pryce, arrived, which shocked Whitney, due to his old age. As Pryce went off, a statue of Suicune started moving. Whitney began her battle by having her Igglybuff and Cleffa use Sweet Kiss on Suicune, followed by Miltank's Rollout. Just as Pryce arrived, Whitney pointed out Suicune has been defeated. Much to her shock, her Miltank was beaten up. Thus, Whitney, despite thinking Pryce was quite old, teamed up with him to catch Suicune.[4] Pryce recalled how the other Gym Leaders fought against Suicune, which surprised Whitney he took a record of others. Pushing his wheelchair, Whitney went with Pryce to battle Suicune and dodged its attack. Once Pryce's Swinub used Powder Snow, Suicune reflected the attack with Mirror Coat. However, the attack was reflected onto Whitney's Miltank, who healed herself with Heal Bell. She also had Mary's Smeargle paint an X on Suicune's head, who used reflections of itself to surround Pryce and Whitney. Once Miltank used Dynamic Punch on Suicune, Whitney threw a Poké Ball to catch Suicune. This left a hole into Suicune and made Whitney cry, thinking she hurt Suicune. On closer look, the group saw it was an ice statue, so Pryce started apologizing, as his Pokémon were using ice powers to creature Suicune statues and make it seem as if it were moving. After the visit was done, the group left, though Whitney claimed Pryce couldn't catch Suicune without her.[5]

Whitney came to the Indigo Plateau, where she and Miltank participated in the Gym Leaders' tournament.[6] Whitney took her seat and watched Brock battle Jasmine.[7] Later, during the Gym Leader tournament, Whitney was arranged to fight against Misty. Her Miltank went to attack with Rollout, but was defeated by Starmie's Hyper Beam and Flash. This ultimately resulted in Whitney's defeat, which made her cry out of frustration.[8] Since Blaine was absent, Clair's battle was postponed and Whitney watched Pryce battling Erika.[9]

Due to Team Rocket having infiltrated into the Indigo Plateau, Whitney battled the grunts. She and the Gym Leaders went into the train, which locked them all in and rode away.[10] She had her Buff Buff and Fafa use Attract on some of the grunts. With the last forces being defeated, Whitney let others know they could have their Pokémon drink Mil Mil's drink to recover. She was also surprised that Lt. Surge managed to separate the carts and had the train go back to the Indigo League.[11] She, Morty, Falkner and Bugsy came back to the stadium, where they met up with the Pokémon Association director. He told that the Masked Man was not even human, since he had a hole inside his body. Whitney was in shock and remembered something.[12] Along with Morty, Whitney confirmed that the Masked Man was actually Pryce.[13] Morty sensed something among the rubble and found Pryce's cane. Whitney recalled Pryce usually tapped his staff and realized he was sending messages through Morse code. In addition, they found a Pokégear inside the cane, making them realize Pryce arranged his plan from the start.[14]

In the end, Whitney returned to her Gym, where she was challenged by other trainers, who wanted to obtain her badge to enter the Pokémon League.[15]
