Now when you hear Whitney you might be thinking to yourself: Miltank, that'll be tough. Especially because you use Cyndaquil in this run instead of Totodile. Uh-uh. It's still Clefairy that's technically more threatening.
See, here's the strategy. First turn, you use an X-Special. Clefairy uses an attack, hopefully not doing anything horrible if she uses Metronome - although there's way less of a chance of things going wrong by virtue of the fact that anything not Doubleslap isn't as bad, and since Gen II there were a lot more trivial moves added. Second turn. You kill it in one hit with Blaze Fire Blast. Miltank comes out. Third turn. You're faster and kill it in one hit with Blaze Fire Blast. Though if you miss and she uses Stomp, you're probably dead. If she uses Rollout, you get another turn or two unless you were at redbar.
Torrent/Blaze/Overgrow is something that pops up a lot in speedruns from Gen III on. This is a pretty simple example. And unlike Gold/Crystal there's way less of a chance of getting destroyed because Metronome trolled you.
