Whitney's Miltank (Japanese: アカネのミルタンク Akane's Miltank) is Whitney's main Pokémon in the games, anime, and manga. She also appears as a card in the TCG.

In the anime

History

Miltank (sometimes referred to as Milty by her Trainer) appeared in the episodes A Goldenrod Opportunity and A Dairy Tale Ending. In her first appearance, Whitney sent her out during Ash's Gym Battle as her last Pokémon when her Nidorina and Clefairy lost to Cyndaquil, with the latter forfeiting. Cyndaquil tried its best to defeat Miltank but was taken out by a super-effective Rollout. Miltank's next opponent was Totodile. Totodile used Water Gun on Miltank to get her wet. However, Water Gun had no effect on the Milk Cow Pokémon and Totodile was taken out by a stronger Rollout due to its effect. With two Pokémon taken out on Ash's side, Pikachu was the last one. Pikachu used Thunderbolt on Miltank since Water Gun would have given him the upper hand. However, Miltank's consecutive spinning by using Rollout caused her to dry up quickly and the Electric-type move was ineffective. As a result, Miltank's Rollout made contact with Pikachu, taking him out and winning the match for Whitney.

Whitney and her Miltank

In the next episode, Whitney sent out Miltank to battle Team Rocket after they raided her uncle Milton's farm to get some food. Miltank managed to send them flying with Rollout. Afterwards, Miltank demonstrated her Rollout attack on a grassy field and showed it to the group. Her training got interrupted by Team Rocket's return with a giant rolling barrel that snatched both Miltank and Pikachu. The barrel used its own Rollout attack as a clean getaway. Miltank and Pikachu were freed by Cyndaquil and Totodile using Tackle and Water Gun, respectively. After Team Rocket's defeat, Miltank was used in the rematch against Ash. Ash relied on a strategy during the rematch that was used earlier to defeat Team Rocket's giant barrel-shaped mecha. Cyndaquil was Miltank's first opponent. Cyndaquil was able to tire Miltank out. However, it was once again defeated by her supereffective Rollout. Her next opponent was Totodile. Totodile dug trenches using his Water Gun in order to divert Miltank's Rollout. Totodile, too, was beaten by Miltank. Pikachu was the last opponent for Miltank. Miltank headed towards Pikachu but hit the trenches instead as Pikachu was super fast. Pikachu headed for the trenches and Miltank was on top of it, causing Pikachu to toss Miltank in the air and defeat her with a ThunderShock. Whitney admitted defeat since her Miltank lost and she is her toughest Pokémon.

Miltank reappeared in a flashback in All That Glitters! when Ash was recalling the time about earning his badges when they were stolen by a trio of Murkrow. She reappeared in another one in Why? Why Not! while Ash and the others were looking for the missing Badges. Miltank made a cameo in Lyra's fantasy alongside Whitney in Bagged Then Tagged!.

Personality and characteristics

Miltank is Whitney's tough Pokémon, according to Whitney herself when she sent her out during the first match with Ash. It was also evidenced when Miltank single-handedly took out all three of Ash's Pokémon without suffering a scratch.

In the Ash and Pikachu manga

Whitney's Miltank in the Ash and Pikachu manga

In the Ash and Pikachu manga, Whitney used Miltank as her final Pokémon during her battle with Ash in The Beginning Of Good Luck?! Pokémon Fortune Telling. Whitney's Miltank started off with an advantage due to her powerful Rollout attack, but when Ash switched from Psyduck to Pikachu, Pikachu hid in one of the craters caused by Miltank's rolling and was able to survive the attack and strike from below, defeating Miltank.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Whitney's Miltank in Pokémon Adventures

Whitney's Miltank appears in the Pokémon Adventures manga. She has the nickname Mil Mil.

Mil Mil debuted in Smeargle Smudge as a cameo during Gold's and Whitney's bike race. She was ordered by Whitney to use Rollout on Gold so that Whitney could be ahead of Gold. In How Do You Do, Sudowoodo?, Mil Mil was once again ordered to use the move but at two different targets, a Sudowoodo and Rhydon which were blocking the way. Mil Mil tried to defeat the Rhydon but to no avail and Whitney broke her arm after Rhydon kidnapped her.

Mil Mil reappeared in Irked Igglybuff and Curmudgeonly Cleffa where she saved Whitney and everyone else from falling on the ice. Afterwards, she finishes up the battle with Suicune after Whitney's Fafa and Buff Buff manage to confuse Suicune. Despite the advantage Mil Mil had with the slippery floor and being Whitney's strongest Pokémon, Mil Mil was defeated and Suicune, which turned out to be an ice sculpture, was still standing. However, Pryce's tips managed to pin it down.

Mil Mil was used in the opening ceremony of the Pokémon League in Notorious Noctowl where she battled Misty's Starmie and lost. Mil Mil was not seen again until Out-Odding Oddish where Whitney was seen riding on her when Gold competed in the Pokéathlon.

Whitney's Miltank in Golden Boys

Miltank also appears in the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga. She first appears in For Pikachu's Sake!! The Search For The Missing Farfetch'd as a use of transportation. Miltank battles Gold's Bayleef. During the battle, when her Rollout crashes at Bayleef's Protect, she accidentally causes a rock slide that almost hurts Cleffa. However, she was able to rescue Cleffa by using Rollout to get to Cleffa faster. Later, Whitney sends out Miltank to deal with a giant tree that was blocking the path to Route 36. However, her Tackle was proven ineffective. In A Promise Given to Miltank, she battles with Gold's Croconaw during their rematch. However, Miltank becomes very sick along with the other Miltank at MooMoo Farm and the only way to cure Whitney's Miltank was to feed her several Berries before sundown. After Gold and Whitney find some Berries for Miltank, Miltank is fed the Berries and she starts to feel better.
