    I don't care even a little bit about the gender of a pokemon, even for breeding there's Ditto so it doesn't affect my game at all, except for certain evolutions. That said, it seems I have mostly male pokemon, but it definitely isn't intentional.

      Do people care that much about gender? Geez @[email protected]

      I only care if I'm going to choose a nickname for my pokés... usually I have ideas only if it's for a female, don't ask me why.

      I have this weird compulsion where most of my dragon-like pokémon MUST be female for some reason I don't even understand.

      Apart from that, I don't really mind what gender a Pokémon is.

      Oh yeah. I got a problem with those, if pokemon look male but are female, then it bugs me. I mean c'mon you gotta admit this would freak you out if you saw it.

      I don't really pay attention to the gender until someone uses Attract so it doesn't bother me that much.

      I always refer to my Pokémon as 'it' rather than 'he' or 'she' as well, but I imagine the majority to be male primarily.

          For me, the gender doesn't really matter much of the Pokemon on my team except when it come to nicknames and evolution.

            I usually don't care, unless I can't think of a nickname for a Pokémon of that species and gender. I've had masculine female Pokémon, and feminine male Pokémon, and I didn't mind. (Although, I tend to refer to genderless Pokémon as "he".)

            I don't really care that much, but usually I'll try to find Pokemon of a gender that I think they were 'intended' to be. Basically what I'm saying is, no female Mr. Mimes or Machamps, or no male Gorebyss or Roserades. Stuff like that.

              I don't really care.
              In my Pokemon White, One of my best Pokémon is a female Lucario.
              But I've been waiting forever to get a female Espeon

                I'll usually reset my game over and over to get a female starter for breeding purposes. Outside of that gender doesn't make a huge difference to me, unless I have a particular nickname in mind (and there's quite a few for me ). Most commonly I'll name a Growlithe/ Arcanine "Lassie," so I'll go out of my way to find a female. One of the reasons I love Shinx and its evolutions is it's a decent Pokemon and I don't need to be picky about gender- Simba and Nala are both fine nicknames.

                    I used to prefer males over females since the female's symbol and color used to bother me a lot. I liked the blue color and the male symbol since I thought that it matched very well with the HP bar and everything. I don't really care that much if its a female or male anymore. It still happens that I get this ''Oohh..I really wan't a male, oh well..'' feeling tho but I'm getting used to female pokemon. If there is a pokemon that has to be a female in order to evolve to a curtain pokemon then I'm using that pokemon as a female.

                      It depends on the Pokemon for me.
                      Mienshao for instance has to be a girl.
                      I actually had to breed a string of Mienfoo's till I got a female.
                      Don't know why, but Mienshao just looks like its meant to be a girl.
                      Same with Jigglypuff, Ninetales, ect.

                      Honestly, I think it's kind of obnoxious to be ... Pokesexist?

                      Unless you've got an irrational fear of your opponent spamming attract or something, I don't see how or why it should matter.

                      I don't really care - unless there were obvious gender differences, I wouldn't notice the difference half the time anyway. (Completely irrelevant, but obvious really doesn't look like its spelled correctly when I type it).

                      I do tend to end up with predominantly male teams though, for example between Emerald and Diamond teams I have only two female pokémon: Blissey (because they're all female) and Ninetales (because I thought it should be a girl for a beauty contest. It doesn't even get to battle xD ).

                        I don't really care what gender my pokemon are, honestly, even if they look really masculine or feminine. My team's gender ratio is pretty balanced, but I didn't go to any effort to make it that way.
                        I don't even care what gender my player character is, I picked the male on in heart gold because I didn't care for the female's hat lol

                        Overall I don't really care what gender they are. Unless I'm catching to complete a breeding pair; then I pay attention. But I'll box them away anyways for later if I can conceive of a use for them. I seldom release anything unless it's a Pokemon I'm not going to train.

                        In a personal sense however; feelings differ, I allow myself, and I am more likely to become deeply attached to a female Pokemon than a male one. However I never get attached to Pokemon I didn't name; and I never name Pokemon that I didn't travel with extensively, and therefore bond deeply, with. I feel like nicknaming a Pokemon implies a more complex relationship than simply just the one between trainer and Pokemon. I occasionally nickname HM slaves for utility reasons if the need arises, but that doesn't do much. Pokemon that came with a name I didn't request usually end up being treated as if they've got no name at all.

                        But despite my personal tastes, I don't waste a usable Pokemon. While I wouldn't hesitate to release a box full of Magikarp; I would feel bad doing so with a box full of a less common, and/or annoying, Pokemon like Spinda. I especially feel responsible for finding good homes for all of them if I catch too many for my needs while grinding for shiny Pokemon. I once spent a week trading off a box full chaff Pokemon that I didn't want cluttering up my storage on the GTS. I was surprised they were valued at all, but the GTS is a worldwide place and somebody wanted them.

                        I ended up with essentially a box of Bidoof which I feel better about releasing into the wild than I did the other Pokemon.

                          It depends on the pokemon's aesthetics. Some can go either way, some I prefer female, some I prefer male.

                          Just a quick example of two pokemon that have 50/50 gender splits but I prefer as a certain gender. Elegance and grace are attributed more to women, so I'd want a milotic to be female. A gyarados looks more rugged and powerful, so I'd want it to be male.

                            I don't tend to care too much about the gender of my Pokemon, unless I'm trying to raise a certain team of Pokemon, such as Red's team from the manga. Other than that, I don't really pay attention to the genders.

                            Don't listen to all those rumors about me, I'm just your average everyday Pokemon trainer!

                              I never bothered myself with genders since I'm already being bothered by natures & abilities...
                              Though I only have some hate for female Pikachus & Jellicents, they just look extremely girlish. I don't usually have a problem with pink pokes but pure pinkies like female Jellicents, Alomomola, Luvdisk, Gorebyss & Snubull bother me a bit.
                              I think both color & design matter, they must be... compatible with each other

                                I don't think the Pokemon have to be a certain gender just because for example there a 'girls' colour such as pink.
                                I have a female Garchomp & i think it adds character.
                                Like, You have to admit. A female Mr. Mime is pretty amusing

                                Unless it's like female machamp, mr. mime, I don't mind. In fact, caring about genders only makes me grind more for the gender I want so I just stopped caring.

                                  There are some pokemon I don't want to be a certain gender. Like Kricketune. Chick-staches are not attractive. Female Kricketune will be forever alone. There's also Hauntail and Gorebyss, who I think should only be male or female, respectively. Gorebyss is pink, with eyelashes, and one of those seashell bras mermaids wear. How can Gorebyss be male? I also wouldn't want to get a male Jynx. Or a Female Mr. Mime. Or a female Machop/Machoke/Machamp. Alomomola and Luvdisc also should be strictly female. And Blissey. As well as Roselia. And Cleffa/Clefairy/Clefable. And any Fairy Types. There are lots of pokemon who should only be female.
