    I couldn't care less about the gender...
    Well, except for Machamp and Gardevoir. I don't think I need to say any more on that matter.

      I always pick Pokemon that are male whenever I play a specific Pokemon game, BUT when I have seen Snivy of Ash (I aways pictured Snivy as male before Pokemon Black/White was released), I said to myself: "Woah! Now that is smexy cool!"

        The gender of my Pokemon doesn't matter to me, I love them regardless LOL
        Though usually I'll try to make my team half boys and half girls, if I can. I just like having an equal amount.
        But it's kind of funny, the whole "masculine-looking Pokemon should be male, vice versa" thing because I have a male Skitty and he's one of my favourites.

          Hm, koff~

          I like some of the starter Pokemon to be female. Certain Pokemon learn the same moves at earlier levels in their pre-evolved forms, so I can get the moves I want through breeding fairly quickly. I don't think I notice much. I don't really use 'gender specific' type Pokemon, so they could be either male or female. It also depends on how the male/female forms look. Sharpedo for instance, I like that cut on the dorsal fin, so I'd like it to be male, while carvanha is male or female. However there are some with the opposite, like my koffings tend to be male and weezing tends to be female, koffi~

          Other than that, I have no issues with male or female Pokemon, as I need them both for breeding.

            wow I thought I was the only one!
            I catch only male Pokemon. There are few exceptions, like Jinx but in general, I catch noly male Pokemon. I have no idea why though.

              Most of my teams have ended up 50% Male, 50% Female (surprisingly no genderless, ever). Most of the time I intentionally pick a gender based on what I view the Pokemon as being (example I always pick female Roserades). Sometimes I'll catch either gender and adjust my nicknames to fit the Pokemon; usually I do this for rarer Pokemon that are time consuming to hunt.

                I generally don't care about gender, except on Manly Pokemon like Machamp and Blastoise, and Feminine Pokemon like Gardevoir and Gothitelle (I just got a Gothitelle on my Randomizer Nuzlocke, but it's a guy At least it has a Modest nature, I guess...)

                  I honestly don't care if I have more males/females on my team, but if the Pokemon looks very masculine/feminine (Lopunny, Gardevoir, Machamp, etc.) I want it to be male/female.

                    I don't really care about genders in the game. I mean if I have a boy and a girl I'll most likely take the girl... not any reason why, I just would.

                    Oh yea, and this. I wouldn't want a female Machamp

                      I don't really care unless if it's got a gender difference like Jellicent and even then I capture both of them in due time .

                        When i was young i didn't want female pokemon. So i think that's why it just doesn't feel right to have a female pokemon for me nowadays. Unless some times when it made sense if the pokemon was female and one exception: once i had a female dragonite in fire red and she was really strong i have her in my black team right now.

                          Depending on how the Pokémon looks.

                          I will never willfully have a female Geodude in my party.

                          I will never willfully have male Jynx (if it's even possible)

                          Male Budews? (Nope)

                          Female Mr. Mime? U srs.

                            Actually majority of Pokémon I prefer female... one exception is Samurott which I prefer male

                                That's how I am as well, unless it's a shiny Pokémon.

                                  It depends on the Pokémon for me, some of them sort of suit being male or female. Most of my teams are usually like 90-100% male though.

                                    My Vaporeon is always female. I guess it's sort because my cats have always been cuter if they're female. Don't get how that works either.

                                    It really depends on the which pokemon it is. Most ghost and normal types are either way.

                                    The idea of a gigalith laying an egg frightens me a bit. Why you ask? I'm always asking myself "How does a rock do so without breaking the egg?" Then I realize that going any further with that thought would be a liiiiitle too personal...

                                    I've always thought Snivy looked more female than male. Probably because my first thought on hearing the name of it's final evo was "Mother Serperior."

                                      It doesn't matter to me unless they're specific in a way like I would want a male Ralts for Gallade or female Combee for Vespiquen.

                                        I don't really care about gender unless I had the perfect nickname for one gender. For example, I had the perfect nickname for a female Fennekin, so if I didn't get one on the first try, I would have reset for a female for nickname purposes. I actually like using masculine female and feminine male Pokémon, and I'll usually evolve my male Ralts to Gardevoir, unless it's to fill the Pokedex, or I need a fighting type.

                                        I tend to prefer male Pokémon, at least for my team. I guess I started caring about gender when I read that male Pokémon had better attack stats than females (back in gen II), and I wanted the strongest Pokémon I could get. While I realize that there's no longer an inherent attack IV difference between males and females, it's been hard to break the trend. Also, blue is my favorite color, and ever since they started coloring the male symbol blue, I've wanted to have that next to my Pokémon. (If they went back to having the symbols both be black or something, I probably wouldn't care as much).

                                        The one exception to this is in Colosseum, where every Pokémon I caught had to be female. However, I did that mainly because Ditto wasn't available at the time, and I wanted to be able to breed the Pokémon I got from Colosseum on RS.

                                          I caught a male Gardevoir. I still refer to it as 'her'.
                                          It's one of the Pokémon I just consider 100% female, same with Chansey, Espeon, Jinx, etc.
                                          I would only catch a female version of those if I notice, but I usually don't really care because either way they will do the same things.

                                            Honestly, I don't care about gender, unless it's a Pokemon I want to breed- because then I obviously want a female. I never thought gender even mattered outside of breeding aspects, and really I couldn't care less what gender my Pokemon are.

                                              ingame female is actually better than male because attract is now a good option if you have a moveslot to spare

                                                It depends on the Pokémon if I want a male or female, especially when gender are involved. For example, I prefer female Hippowdon. If they don't have gender differences, I prefer the more common gender. If the gender ratio is 50/50 and there are no gender differences, I just go by what the Pokémon looks like to me. For example, I can't help but think Sandshrew and Sandslash look feminine.
