    They should combine them into one species, since, you know, they are. And if you must, have Nidoran be in spots 29 AND 32.

    And fix the breeding issue.

    You combine them, and then you'll need to combine Volbeat and Illumise (seeing as Illumise will give you male Volbeat on top of female Illumise, no matter who she breeds with), further ruining the Nat'dex.

    So you gotta figure: if they had this by the third Gen? They ain't ever considering making the Nidoran sexes considered one species.

    Exactly... I've been wanting this for a while now. The entire point of a PokeDex is so that trainers can categorize Pokemon, and learn more about all the different species. So why are Pokemon like Pikachu and Raichu #25 and #26, respectively... while Pichu is #172?

    The entire national dex should be renumbered, starting with the Pikachu line (as it's currently the earliest one that has an addition made in a later generation). Pichu should be #25, pushing everything else up. The same thing should be done with all other pre-evos and evos introduced in a later generation than their line. Cleffa would be next up, becoming #36 (Pichu having already pushed everyone down one), and so on.

    All the legendaries from all regions should then be taken and shuffled into the end of the National Dex. Trios first, then misc. species (Lati Twins, Heatran, Manaphy, etc.), then super-legendaries (Mewtwo, etc.), and finally event legendaries.

    The two Nidoran learn somewhat slightly different moves...

    The solution: integrate the movesets.

    But I think this would be a good idea, giving more of a purpose to Pokemon's new system of forme change in regular, non-legendary Pokemon.

    I guess that answers my question. Nothing is sacred.

    So take away what makes two sexes unique from each other?

    That's a bunch of suds in the wash. Good luck selling it.

    It's now pretty much 5th Gen, it's too far in to change things from the beginning. Either way I'd disagree, I'd want to have a choice if I'd get a Nidorino or a Nidorina.

    ಠ_ಠ You still would... Capture a ♀ Nidoran or a ♂ Nidoran, you just wouldn't be looking at the names but the gender icon...

    either way, Iunno. I don't know their movesets, but if they are different, then no. But even if they were the say, it's much too late in the game to put something like that in I'd say.
    this should be really obvious but, I really don't post here anymore. I pop in from time to time, but I really don't care.

    Cool story bro, but I prefer things my way and have no interest in any other option. Thanks.

    Are they truly different species? Maybe they're morphed versions of the same species (I've seen tons of animals that look vastly different depending on sex). Or possibly they're just versions of the same species. The Pokedexes do make it sound like they're one species.

    They should be combined, but they'd have to retcon 90% of the Pokédex numbers or leave an empty spot there (which would be even more stupid).

    Well yeah as most people have said, logic says they should be the same species, but it's too late to change now. The two lines are pretty much separate in my mind.

    It's too late to change it now. Way too late.


    A lone detective takes it upon himself to solve the murder of a young woman, willingly diving into the dangerous web of conspiracies weaved by the feuding mafia families. But after the truth is uncovered, will that city of sin be the same ever again?
