Whitley (Japanese: ファイツ Whi-Two) is a main character in the manga series Pokémon Adventures.
Whitley is a former member of Team Plasma. She sided with the faction of Team Plasma who were with N's wish to liberate Pokémon from evil humans. She was tasked with guarding a microchip with the blueprints of a device able to counteract a machine created by Colress able to control Pokémon. After the team's defeat in the Black & White chapter, she was forced to move away so that any traces of her past would be left behind. Despite this, she yearns for the return of Team Plasma's king, N.
Whitley as a member of Team Plasma
Whitley debuts as a member of Team Plasma alongside her mother. After Team Plasma's defeat at the hands of Black and his allies, she, her mother, and several other members managed to escape being caught. As they prepare to leave, Whitley asks if they can take the Pokémon N liberated from humans with them. Although her mother tells her they can't, Anthea and Concordia allows Whitley to take a Foongus with her, as it was the one Whitley had bonded the most with. Right before they leave, Whitley is given a locket with N's photo inside.
Whitley debuts in this chapter as a new student in the Aspertia City Trainers' School. To her dismay, a commotion caused by fellow classmates Hugh, Blake, and Leo leads to their teacher, Cheren, deciding that it would be best to have a battle between the class. Despite not wanting to bring attention to herself, Whitley wins the battle, earning herself a Pokédex alongside Blake. This horrifies Whitley, since her former leader hated the Pokédex. After some coaxing from Blake, Whitley reluctantly keeps the Pokédex. Later that night, she sadly thinks about how her mother made her switch schools in order to break off any connections to her past as a member of Team Plasma. She takes out her locket and wishes for her former king's return. To cheer herself up, she puts on the uniform and states that she intends on fighting everyday.
The next day at school, Blake invites Whitley on a trip to fill the Pokédex with data. Having been a former member of Team Plasma, Whitley rejects Blake but ends up being dragged to the Pledge Grove anyway. After arriving, Whitley reluctantly summons a Pokémon in order to get the Pokédex filled up, but ends up causing Keldeo to arrive. Keldeo immediately attacks the two, forcing Blake to grab Whitley and dodge out of the way. They avoid taking damage, but both end up falling down a cliff below. Blake saves the both of them by grabbing a branch in time, but Whitley's Foongus falls to the ground below. Whitley calls out to her Foongus, revealing it to be named Foongy, but soon passes out and flashes back to when she first met it as a member of Team Plasma. Blake manages to get himself and Whitley down to safe ground and uses Foongy's nickname as a way to get it to trust him enough to carry it back. Afterward, Blake carries the unconscious Whitley back to school. He offers to take her to the nurse, but Whitley wakes up and runs to the nurse's office herself.
During a school trip to Pokéstar Studios, Whitley takes place in a Brycen-Man movie after being recommended in doing so by Sabrina. In the movie, she faces the titular villain while playing the role of the superheroine Foongus Girl. She easily defeats Brycen-Man's Pokémon, but a Mecha Tyranitar from another movie set bursts in and begins attacking. To Whitley's embarrassment, Blake shows up in the guise of Dewott Kid and saves the day. After they leave, Blake continues frustrating Whitley with his constant advancements on the bus ride home. Upon returning, the girls in the class begin excitedly talking about the upcoming culture festival. Hearing their chatting angers Hugh into telling them to get back to their dorms. When Yuki tells Hugh off, one of her comments enrages Hugh into attacking her. The girls angrily run off, but Hugh finds Whitley's pendant on the ground. A microchip falls out, which Hugh later investigates on his laptop. He finds out that the chip contains a list of the various Pokémon liberated from their Trainers by Team Plasma. Having been the very first person who had their Pokémon stolen by Team Plasma, Hugh angrily swears to find the owner of the pendant and expose her true identity.
Sometime later, Whitley has a dream about reuniting with N, only to wake up in horror when N suddenly turns into Blake. She begins to realize that she is developing feelings for Blake, but refuses to accept it. In her frustration, Whitley realizes that her pendant had disappeared. The next day in class, Blake drags Whitley to Route 20 in order to search for the supplies for the upcoming culture festival that have yet to arrive. While there, Blake gives Whitley a birthday present, which she nervously attempts to reject. The conversation is interrupted by the arrival of Tornadus, which Blake proceeds to battle. As the fight progresses, Foongy accidentally releases spores that put Whitley to sleep. Whitley later wakes up in Virbank City, where Blake took her to in order to watch a live performance of Roxie and her band. Blake reveals that he heard his classmates talking about inviting Roxie to the upcoming Choral Competition and decides to do so after the concert is over. After returning to her dorm room, Whitley receives the package Blake gave her from the dorm mother. When she notices that a telescope is inside, Whitley blushes because Blake remembered her stargazing hobby.
Later, Whitley takes part in the Autumn Choral Competition as a member of Team Jigglypuff. The competition is judged by Roxie, who happily accepted Blake's offer to take part in the competition. Along with Blake, Hugh, Leo, Yuki, Yuko, and Maya, Team Jigglypuff faces off against a variety of other teams in the competition. After a hard battle against Team Sawsbuck, Team Jigglypuff emerges as the winners of the competition with the help of Blake's Dewott. As a reward for their performance, Roxie has her father take the winning team and their class to Castelia City to participate in the Unova Choral Competition.
After traveling on Pop Roxie's boat, the class arrives at their destination. Shortly after stepping onto land, Roxie discovers a member of the executive committee for the Unova Choral Competition. The man reveals that a group of villains attacked him and stole his Karrablast in an attempt to "liberate" it. Recognizing the term, Whitley realizes that the culprits must be members of Team Plasma. Hoping that the members may know where N is, Whitley decides to help Blake, Hugh, and Roxie investigate the Castelia Sewers, where the thieves went into hiding. After investigating the sewers, the group comes across a group of Team Plasma Grunts, who attack them with their Muk. When Hugh sees the Team Plasma members, he flies into a rage and begins attacking them, only to fail when the Muk begin swarming after everyone, forcing the group to scatter.
The Grunts eventually back Whitley and Roxie into a corner, forcing Roxie to battle them. Whitley considers revealing her allegiance to Team Plasma in order to get the Grunts to stop attacking. She soon decides against it when she realizes that despite being a former Grunt, she never actually saw how Team Plasma liberated Pokémon from Trainers. By using the knowledge she acquired at school, Whitley easily defeats the Grunts' Muk. After the Grunts retreat and throw away the Pokémon they captured, Whitley decides to call her mother on her Xtransceiver.
Whitley learns from her mother that the black-suited Team Plasma Grunts are from a side of Team Plasma that opposed N's wishes and wanted to use the liberated Pokémon for their own ends. Whitley's mother also reveals that a scientist named Colress was made the new leader of Team Plasma and created a device, known as the Colress Machine, capable of controlling Pokémon. The members of Team Plasma that remained with N created a microchip containing data on a device that could counteract the Colress Machine and hid it inside Whitley's pendant. Whitley is asked by her mother to find the missing pendant and take it to Rood or Gorm.
|| Foongy ♂
- Main article: Foongy
Foongy (Japanese: ダケちゃん Dake-chan) is Whitley's only known Pokémon. He was originally a Pokémon liberated from humans by N and was secretly given a nickname despite Rood advising against it. After Team Plasma's defeat, Anthea and Concordia allowed Whitley to keep Foongy. Two years later, he was taken to the Aspertia City Trainers' School, where Whitley introduced the both of them to their classmates. When the class had a battle between each other based on gender, Foongus was used to win the girls side, much to Whitley's horror since it brought attention to herself and earned herself a Pokédex. At Pokéstar Studios, he served as the partner of Foongus Girl and easily defeated Brycen-Man's team despite the type-disadvantages.

These Pokémon were meant to be released back into the wild after N's victory, but he was defeated in the end, thus ruining Team Plasma's plans.
