I don't have gender preferences on my favorite Pokemon because it just simply doesn't make a difference to me! The only Pokemon that I prefer certain genders on are the Pokemon that look gender specific(like Machamp or Conkeldurr)

A Pokemon that is discriminated!

Yes Genders are just a social thing in Pokemon world meaning nothing to me. I just want to have a balanced Gender team and that goes for every Legendary Also that is if they have Genders.

My favorite Pokemon, Gallade, is a one-gender species (male), and I'd like to keep it that way.

All my favorite Pokemon are 50/50 Male/Female gender, most of the time I don't mind what gender they are when I'm catching, I will give them an appropriate nickname based on the Pokemon's gender - I think I mentioned on another topic, I don't want to give a female Pokemon a male-type nickname.

My only exception is when I play a specific challenge and have all my team selected with nicknames.... that's when gender plays an important role.

If I have my preference for a gender - by favorite Pokemon order, bold is my favorite - then it would be:
01 - Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott - Female
02 - Patrat/Watchog - Female
03 - Mienfoo/Mienshao - Female
04 - Buizel/Floatzel - Male
05 - Zigzagoon/Linoone - Male
06 - Eevee/Leafeon - Male [don't use the other Eeveelutions so I didn't include them]
07 - Purrloin/Liepard - Male
08 - Snivy/Servine/Serperior - Female
09 - Sentret/Furret - Male
10 - Zorua/Zoroark - Female

instead of 'Catch 'em All' for me would be "gotta Pet 'Em All"

I don't mind most about genders but if I'm using the Gothitelle line they must always be female. I just can't stand seeing them as boys, same with Kirlia, Gardevoir, Bellossom, Clefairy line, Audino etc.

Depends on the pokemon. I have a few pokemon that I like, but some just have to be male or female. Just kinda annoys me to see a male pokemon that looks like a female. Or a freaking female Mr.Mime or male Jynx which really really annoys me.

Just think of it as feminine males and females with high testosterone levels. We even have them IRL.

Like many others, it depends on the Pokemon. Male Bellossoms, Audinos, Gardevoirs, etc get a bit on my nerves. Same goes for Pokemon like Machamp.

I like to keep Glaceon, one of my favorites, as a female, along with some other Eeveelutions as well.

I catch whatever gender I first encounter.

I do like my Espeon as female and Lucario as male, though.

I don't feel like listing much, but some of my favorite pokémon, I can bring up.

Sneasel/Weavile, I prefer as females. They are just more cool when they are females, than if they are males imo. Sneaky, slashy, ice cold girls.

Octillery, I prefer as male. It just feels like a male to me and I can't describe why.

I'm pretty indifferent on gender for most Pokemon. Some Pokemon I do perceive a certain way but I don't make a big fuss about it if I have a hard time finding the Pokemon of that gender (for example.. I'm not going to keep restarting my HG/SS/G/S/C games for the sake of getting a female Chikorita)

Of course there are the obvious ones like Machop/Machoke/Machamp which so obviously look male. It bothers me to no end to see those as females. I mean, they made the Tyrogue evolutionary family all-male... so why didn't they do that with these guys?

1. Sandshrew = male
2. Mudkip = male
3. Oshawott = male
4. Shroomish = male
5. Quilava = male
6. Ivysaur = female

I don't have an official top 10 list, and the rest of my favorites start to blur together. A majority of what I would probably list next, such as Togekiss, Leafeon, and Whimsicott, I would prefer as females.

Because I like to identify with the top 4 of my list, that might explain why I prefer them as males.

As long as my Pokémon are being helpful, their genders don't matter to me. Genders could be beneficial if you're a breeder. If you are not one, then you have no use for them, really. I know that some Pokémon are meant to be a certain gender, but I don't let those kind of things bother me. xD"

I don't like female Pokémon unless they're feminine looking ones to begin with.

I don't really have a preference when it comes to whatever gender a Pokémon is. In fact, gender is rarely something I pay attention to when catching new Pokémon or choosing Pokémon for my team. They're all the same to me!

I'm not too picky, unless they look like they should be gender specific (Gardevoir, Jynx, Machamp). Also, Sceptile for me has to be a guy, I don't know why, I just can't see it being a female. Weird...
