    Question Gen V Gender Ratio: Differences between Bulba and Serebii

    I was trying to figure out what the gender ratios of the Gen 5 Pokémon are. To be precise, I wanted to know which ones are male-only and which are female-only.
    Having not played the game and having basically no knowledge for extracting the exact information from the games myself, I looked it up in the male-only and female-only categories in bulbapedia.
    Then I cross-checked with Serebii and I found these differences:

    - Birijion (Bulbapedia says it's male-only, Serebii says it's genderless)
    - Dokkora (Bulbapedia: male-only; Serebii: male-female)
    - Kerudio (B: male-only; S: Genderless)
    - Kobaruron (B: male-only; S: Genderless)
    - Kyuremu (B: male-only; S: Genderless)
    - Meraruba (B: male-only; S: male-female)
    - Terakion (B: male-only; S: Genderless)
    - Urugamoth (B: male-only; S: male-female)

    I have no way to know who is right, but having found a couple of other errors (and several pieces of information lacking) in the bulbapedia infoboxes, I'm inclined to believe Serebii more. I think they took the data from ROM dumps or something, and the discordant info on bulbapedia might just be editors' errors. But I can't be sure.
    What do you say?

    Male-only is probably a default setting on the template. Bulbapedia is in no way complete and we are doing our best to get the BW information on the wiki.

    I can actually get all that information - the only roadblock is that I don't know how it's encoded.

    *edit* Actually, if you want it, here it is. Each Pokemon's base stats data takes up 60 bytes, for a total of 667 index numbers and 40,020 bytes.

    *edit2* Actually, never mind, I found it myself - it's offset +12 (+18).

    And here's the data:


    Sorted by index number because I couldn't be bothered to put the names in. But up till 649, all the index numbers are equal to their NatDex numbers.

    This means, of course, that:

    Birijion is genderless.
    Dokkora is 75% male.
    Kerudio is genderless.

    ...I'll assume that the rest of it is right.

    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    Now just out of curiosity:what are those numbers beyond 459? i'd guess one is fo the egg... the others? Glitches? Dummies?
