She's the second hardest GL in Johto. And HG/SS made it worse.
Yeah if you don't level grind and use status lowering moves ect.
No I just had to think correctly to win
Dude heck Yes I got spammed with rollout and attract and stomp countless times.

Some days you just can't force a smile. :<
I had all male pokemon, f*ck attract.....
Adopt one yourself! @Pokémon Orphanage
One word: Quilava. Rollout is super effective. Actually, scratch that; male quilava. Attract + rollout = you're effed, unless you level grind like heck. Luckily, I had the patience to actually do that back in the day.

Spoiler:- Other sig stuff:
Yeah, I had a male Quilava as well. In Heart Gold that miltank was a HUGE pain for me. Glad to hear I wasn't the only one. I didn't really feel like grinding at all but I think I ended up grinding a little anyway.
That steelix gym also gave me grief.
It's been very long since I've played Gold. During the first, I thought it was just Attract that's the problem, but then I've lost my Quilava against that Miltank.
If the rumors are true, then Normal type Pokemon are the strongest. Of course with a fighting Pokemon, you would have ease, but against a Miltank, it's hard to take it down with high stamina and strength.
To beat Miltank, make sure to have a female Pokemon to help you to avoid attract. If one of your Pokemon ends up in love, switch to another Pokemon. Don't go with a flying type or a fire type. Flaffy is good, but make sure Flaffy is strong and fast. It's fine when its paralyzed, just switch in time before you get crushed.
When Miltank is stuck paralyzed, and you can lucky, finish Miltank off for good.
I am Red, Knights of the Pokemon Round Table. I have come afar to bring justice to all warriors and trainers with my valiant Pokemon and my weapon.
Anyway, she's not really hard. All you need is to know what you're doing.
I used a Croconaw with Ice Punch. Miltank has good physical defense, but its Special defense isn't that great, allowing it to get 2HKO'd easily.
If anyone wants to know, if you haven't picked Totodile, Abra is available in the Game Corner and the Elemental Punches can be bought in the Goldenrod department store. It's just as good.

I was 8 years old when I first battled her, and I still didn't see the point of using anything other than my starter(which happened to be Quilava at the time) and any move that didn't do damage, so naturally the Attract /Rollout combo made getting past her impossible for a while, maybe a week or so of trying to beat her. I eventually got fed up with it and restarted my game to get a different starter that wouldn't die so easily, so I picked totodile this time and cleaned house, until I realized that Rollout did more damage each time it hit, and that I was still suspect-able to charm status thanks to all of the starters being Male. This is also were I found out thank her Miltank could use Milk Drink to restore whatever damage I manged to do to her, making her seem impossible for me or my brothers(who were 6 and 5 years old, respectively) to beat. Then one one day, when I manged to save enough money from trainer rematches to buy the Ice Punch TM, I ended up talking to that guy that would trade you a Machop for a Drowsee. I knew Fighting types were super effective against normal types, so I traded him the Drowsee with Flash that I had for it, challenged Whitney, and still lost to Stomp attacks, because Machop weak and I had battled just about everyone beyond the unmovable Sudowoodo tree, and I didn't want to wait for rematches, so I restarted a 3rd time, picked Cyndaquil back up, caught a Female Drowsee as early as possible so I wouldn't be charmed and traded it for Machop, then I went to work battling people I had intentionally skipped so Machop could gain enough EXP to stand a chance, getting him up to LV.17 due to him being a traded Pokemon, and finally beat Miltank with STAB Karate Chops. This is were I realized what that random NCP meant when he said that Building an equally leveled team was more efficient then using only one Pokemon, so I deiced to catch and train Mareep, and that Sudowoodo to equal levels.

Even at like, 7, I didn't have a particularly difficult time beating her Miltank.I mean, it was bulky, but I took down pretty easily. I only needed my Croconaw to beat it and Clefairy.
Thanks to Atari for this awesome banner!
EPISODE 40 - THAT IS THE RIGHT SOUND IS NOW LIVE
* Luxray, is my claim.
I would always get killed by roll out and my strongest Pokemon happen to be male so he turned out to be useless due to attract. I didn't know how to make strategies better at the time because I wasn't that experienced with Pokemon games. When the remakes came out I blew that Pokemon away in one go.
"Yo~! Manaka's here! Wanna go home together? Teehee♥"
That Miltank was EASY. I know most of you found it very hard. But some other gym leaders were harder than that "Beast".
I used to simply waltzing into gyms and challenging the leaders without training, so my first time around playing Crystal was a bit hard. I got curbstomped at most of the Johto gym (if not all). Like I remembered trying to use Confusion from a L18 or something Butterfree on Hitmonlee at Chuck's gym. Well, that was the past. I don't have troubles anymore because I level grind like crazy before challenging the gyms. Now the level gap between the gym leaders and my team are almost always more than 5, and with type matchup and strategy, I breeze through them easily.
On my Crystal nuzlocke, my starter and four other pokemon fainted before and when I battled Bugsy.
The funny thing is that I had no trouble with whitney
thats a really good way to prepare for gym leaders. especially the later gym leaders.
I recommend that people should have their pokemon at least 5 or more levels than the leader's toughest pokemon.
Because it's bulky and at the beginning of the game you mainly focus on power and tend to try 1/2HKOing everything, without sparing a thought on how to make your pokemon last in battle for a longer time.
