If Fairy-type existed in Gen 2, would Whitney have been a Normal-type Gym Leader, or a Fairy-type Gym Leader?
What team would she have had?
Miltank is her ace, so she'd be a Normal gym leader regardless.
Clefairy still fits as a cutemon so she'd still probably use it, or Jigglypuff instead if she really had to use all Normal mons.
>Miltank gets retconned to Fairy-type
But she is a girly energetic girl anon.
If fairies existed in Gen II, yes they would have made her a Fairy Gym Leader, probably using either Granbull or Clefable.
That said, even if they do another Gen II remake, she'll still be a Normal gym leader, they aren't going to retcon that. Her gym will have to go through a lot of changes though, mostly replacing Clefairy with Jigglypuff.
