Gyarados on all counts. I like to hit 'em fast and hit 'em hard, and Gyarados excels at that exact strategy. Milotic CAN counter with Hidden Power Electric or Toxicstalling, and is by no means a bad pokemon, but I prefer Gyarados overall.
They wouldn't fight, they'd make eggs.. jk
This below is if the milotic is female, and the Gyarados male, for hilarity's sake
For me, it goes down to each pokemon's moveset as well. Potentially they could kill eachother at the same time (not game based of course)
Then again Milotic is the enraged wife who's tired of her husband (Gyarados) drinking and causing a ruckus, and I'm sure most people know how dangerous women can get, she'd give him one heck of a beat down, but he isn't going to sit there and take it, he's going to get up and beat that milotic till she cries, possibly in rage.
If the Gyarados is hit by HP-Electric and LIVES, and knows it's going to pull that move, then the Gyarados can use dragon dance, which boosts speed and attack. After being nearly killed Gyarados, now probbaly hitting first, will use flail , if it has it, in hopes of putting the smack down on that milotic, this will take it's hp down a good notch, but it's higher defenses keep it from dieing like the gyarados wanted. Milotic uses one more Hp-Electric and the match is over!
The winner is the Milotic, whom drags Gyarados back to the house to clean up his mess and take out the trash D:<
I do wonder why people merely state Gyarados would win, just because it came out first :/
Which of these powerful Water types do you prefer?
Gyarados, just because it looks cooler and was the original.
Which one is more useful?
Depends on what you're going for, but I think that, overall, Gyarados is more useful.
Which one would win in a battle between the two?
As it has been made clear, Milotic with HP Electric wins.
In terms of whom is most annoying I think Milotic is the most annoying because it keeps stalling defeat plus who'd waste their time catching Feebas and try to max out his/her beauty
Gyarados is like a dragon!
Milotic = Gyarados' female counterpart
Both are tough. Milotic had High HP and Gyarados has high attack, but I have to go with Gyarados.
CLAMIMED: Loves to eat!
I prefer Gyrados. I've used to before and had a lot of success. If we aren't talking competitive battling with IV breeding for HP Electric, then I think Gyrados would conquer. If we are, then Gyrados would probably get zapped to death.
Sarcasm is the body's natural defense against stupidity.

Gyarados. Its pre-evolved form, Magikarp is easier to find than Feebas.
The only thing that's a pain in the ass is training the Magikarp to lv20 lol!
Mitolic. She's just so awsome. I've never had one though, cuz Feebas are so fricklin hard to get. But Gyarados is just ick in my opinion. There are many water pokemon that are better than Gyarados that are easier to find. (again, all in my opinion.)
I like to save the beef for my tacos, so that's why my sig isn't that...well,beefy. (:
Reshiram is for those who are cool.
HeartGold is the first game in which my main team did not contain a Gyarados, so I guess that makes it pretty obvious who I like best. I've never had a Milotic - can't be bothered with Pokeblocks/poffins.
As for in a battle, if Milotic carried HP Electric, then I would bank on her, if not, possibly Gyaraods.
Gyarados hands down, had more of a movepool that he can learn, Milotic only beats him in one area and that is that it doesnt have the 4X weakness to electric but Gyara counters that by having a neutral hit from grass types
