Whitney appears in {{game5|Gold|Silver|Crystal|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} as the Leader of the [[Goldenrod Gym]]. She is the third Gym Leader that Trainers must defeat to move further in the game. She is known as "The Incredibly Pretty Girl!".
Whitney uses the {{type|Normal}}, and although she only began battling a little while ago, her talent attracted the [[Pokémon League]] to choose her as a Gym Leader. Her Gym is filled with other young girls like herself, who use cute Normal-type Pokémon like {{p|Meowth}}, and is shaped like a {{p|Clefairy}}. While in {{game2|Gold|Silver|Crystal}} all challengers have to do to reach Whitney is navigate through the Gym's maze puzzle, Whitney is initially absent from the Gym in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}. She can be found in Goldenrod's [[Goldenrod Radio Tower|Radio Tower]] attempting to win a {{DL|Pokégear|Radio|Radio Card}}. If the {{player}} helps her, she will return to the Gym. Despite this act of kindness, she will throw a temper tantrum upon defeat and refuse to give the {{Badge|Plain}}. A Gym Trainer will tell the player that she will eventually calm down. Once calmed down, however, she will give the player the Badge, and {{TM|45|Attract}}. Apparently, this move is perfect for her, because it makes full use of a Pokémon's cuteness.
Like the other Johto and Kanto Gym Leaders, Whitney will leave her Gym from time to time in {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}}. Unlike other Leaders, she will not travel far: just down the road to the [[Goldenrod Department Store]] anyday between 12:00 PM and 4:00 PM. She's to the far left of the 6th floor. Once her [[Pokégear]] phone number has been obtained, she will accept rematches on Saturday afternoons at the [[Fighting Dojo]] in [[Saffron City]]. Her team in these battles will be significantly stronger than her team in the initial battles, although her signature {{p|Miltank}} will remain in her party.
* Her Japanese Leader title is {{tt|ダイナマイト プリティ ギャル!|Dynamite Pretty Gal!}}.
* She is the first [[Johto]] [[Gym Leader]] encountered that uses a {{cat|Generation II Pokémon}} in battle, which only half of Johto's Gym Leaders do.
* In [[Generation III]], a Whitney look-alikelookalike, along with [[Jasmine]] and [[Pryce]] look-alikeslookalikes, can be seen as an audience member in a [[Pokémon Contest]].
* In the {{pkmn|anime}}, she is the only Johto Gym Leader to have been defeated by {{Ash}} in a [[rematch]].
* Whitney appears as an opponent in [[Pokémon Puzzle Challenge]]. She uses a {{p|Clefairy}} to battle.
* Whitney is the only Gym Leader whose team's movesets do not alter between Generations II and IV, although their levels do.
