    I usually decide my team beforehand, and then decide whether they look more masculine or feminine then try to catch one accordingly.

    Male Gardevoirs, Male MISdreavus, female Machoke's etc is just plain wrong in my opinion.

    I have only recently now broken this trend some 10 years later. Does anybody else follow this trend or is it just me?
    ......in gen 2-3 we all caught males because even though we didn't know about game mechanics, we just noticed that males were stronger. i didn't break from the trend until dp....it matters to me because of nicknames otherwise..so male is better unless its an all-female species in gen 2.....

    I've never been picky about gender unless it's something obvious like Machoke or Gardevoir.

    I usually don't care for gender, but sometimes I want certain pokemon of select species to be female because I find it somewhat cuter.

    As a female player, I tend to care about which gender my Pokemon are, though it varies. Pretty (ie.Rapidash and Ninetails) or cute Pokemon I like to have as female. Tough-looking Pokemon i typically have as male, though I'm not too strict about it. Pokemon that look like they could be either don't matter to me. I love my female Absol, for example.

    It doesn't really matter to me, although like most people I prefer more feminine looking pokemon to be male and more masculine pokemon to be male.
    The only time it would really bother me if if for example I was battling a trainer/gym leader who had a pokemon use Attract (*cough*Whitney*cough*), then in that case I'd probably go for a female. I usually have more males on my team (4 is the most common number) but I try to keep it 3 male and 3 female for the most part.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    No, it doesn't matter to me. Although it's odd when a "Mr.Mime" is female.

    Mostly no for me. I care about Natures, but not Gender. Unless I'm trying to get a female Pokemon for breeding.

    Only if a pokémon looks feminine, will I worry about it. Or, vise versa.

    I prefer my starters to be guys, to match the player character. So of course, I only got a male starter in FireRed, Crystal, and White 2. o3o I never soft reset for gender, so I just accept whatever I get regardless.

    As for other Pokemon, though, I'm aiming to destroy stupid gender stereotypes. It's such a stupid thing that "feminine" Pokemon like Gardevoir SHOULD be female, and "masculine" Pokemon like Machamp SHOULD be male. Pokemon aren't human beings, so their gender shouldn't be decided based on appearence. Just to kick those stupid ideas, I always make sure I have male Gardevoirs, Lopunnys, Jigglypuffs, etc. The same with the other half, I always get female Machamps, Alakazams, Rhyperiors, and so on.

    It's why I refer to all the chibi-legendaries as "male", especially Mew. "It's small cute and pink so it HAS to be a girl", ugh. Same with Meloetta. He doesn't have an official gender, so it's safe to call him a boy. Even with the name. If GAME FREAK wanted Meloetta to be a girl, he wouldn't be genderless. I seriously hope the world can be rid of stupid stereotypes regarding gender one day. :| It's one of my major berserk buttons, so I may have ranted a little, but really now...
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Gender really doesn't matter at all to me. I usually just take the first thing I catch.

    Like most other people, I prefer male Pokemon unless they're more feminine looking.

    In GSC I catch the male Pokemon, if I want their attack stats to be higher (this is determined by the same variables). In RSE it doesn't matter, unless perhaps a nickname sounds better for a Pokemon with a certain gender. In DP and up, I choose the Pokemon that looks the best. Some female Pokemon look cool, but most of them have an extremely lazy change in design, so I often end up with male Pokemon if there is a difference. Take Golbat for instance. The only thing they've done, is making its teeth smaller, like as if they haven't done that already from Blue version! Usually it is the colour differences that I like, because then both the male and female Pokemon look good in their own way and give the variation I want. I wonder how many people (if they cared to make a choice) would pick the female Golbat of the two?
    Captain Lincoln Stern, you stand here accused of...
    12 counts of murder in the first degree
    14 counts of armed theft of Federation property
    22 counts of piracy in high space
    18 counts of fraud
    37 counts of rape
    and 1 moving violation....how do you plead?

    I prefer male pokemon...because I just do XDD. I don't like having females in my team. It sort of feels like I got a bunch of cool male bodyguards XDD A male Gardevoir isn't so bad (but I'd just get a Gallade in the first place XDD)
