Ok some pokemon nerdism here as well as some unpopular opinion. Anytime I hear someone bitch (which is the pokemon fandom is rather often) about Whitney’s Miltank which is often regarded as the worse gym battles in the Pokemon franchise I facepalm.
Miltank isn’t a dark/ghost type people, its a normal type, that means it HAS a weakness. And one of which is easily exploited. You have two really good options just within the Goldenrod area of the game: Muscle the Machop which can be found within Goldenrod and can be traded for a Drowsee (Drowsee being found in the wild north of Goldenrod) and Nidoran (both genders) which can be found in the same grass as Drowsee.
Both have fighting type attacks (karate chop/double kick) and can very easily take down miltank in one or two attacks if they’re at a similar level as the Miltank. Meaning the ever feared rollout attack doesn’t have enough time to do any damage so long as they’re the first pokemon out.
:| Why the bloody fuck can people that regularly play pokemon NOT figure out this strategy? Its the most basic Pokemon gaming (when pure power fails use type advantage)!
So there, let’s hope this tumblr reaches a broad enough audience that people stop derping when they get to Whitney in either the original gold/silver games or the remakes.
I’m going to take a moment to go on a nostalgia crap rant.
The worst gym by far imo is
