Somewhat. When it is a Pokémon I really like or is on my top list of all time favourite Pokémons,
I'd choose a specific gender for that matter.
Ralts > Female
Mawile > Female
Arcanine > Male
Floatzel > Male, and so forth.
When i'm lookin' for Pokémons just to trying to complete the Pokédex with no means of using later on then I don't really care about the gender.
