So I was battling the Johto gym leaders in the PWT and I came across Whitney and her miltank. I sent out my Infernape and went for close combat. But her miltank managed to outspeed my Infernape! Here are the specs on my poke:

Ability: Iron Fist
Naughy nature (+Att, -Sp. Def)
252 Att 252 Speed 4 Sp Att
-Fire Punch
-Close Combat
-Stealth Rock

I would like to know if Whitney's Miltank is scarfed in the PWT. Thanks in advance! Just so you know, I wasn't holding any items during battle.

No, her Miltank is not scarfed. According to Bulbapedia her Miltank holds a Liechi berry in the Johto Leaders tournament. The effect of a Liechi Berry is "If held by a Pokémon, it raises its Attack stat in a pinch." So it has nothing to do with her item.

Infernape has 108 base speed and Miltank has 100. Whitney's Miltank probably has perfect IVs which makes it outspeed your Infernape.

Not even one of her Miltanks is scarfed. In the Jhoto Leaders Tournament, her Miltank is holding a Liechi Berry (Boosts Attack). In the Type Experts: Normal/World Leaders Tournament, her Miltank is holding the exact same thing: Lum berry (Restores any one status condition). In a download tournament called Challenge the Champion Lance, her Miltank is holding a Sitrus berry (recovers 1/4 of max health). But all CPUs in the PWT (Except Champions) have their Pokemon with 20 IV's in everything. So maybe your Infernape doesn't have good enough IV's in speed?
