Does gender affect the stats... Or is that an urban legend that fooled me until now?

What would stop me from using a male only team?

    Only in Gen 2. Females are weaker.

      That means humanity is in Gen2 because women are weaker, both mentally and physically.

    It did in Gen 2, due to being tied to IVs. Same reason shinies sucked back then.

    You would be fucked over by anyone that had Attract on a female pokemon. A single-gender team is inherently weaker.

    Only in gen2. In that game, gender is determined by a Pokemon's individual stat values and it's mathematically impossible for a female Pokemon to have certain maximum values, but only in Attack (I think, I could be wrong).

    In every other gen after, it's based on something new entirely. Each Pokemon has a gender ratio or is genderless like Magnemite. No influence from stats.

    Gender in pokemon doesn't affect anything but who they can breed with for the most part(unless it's ditto) and sometimes the appearance is different from the other gender. I believe there's something in gen 2 about females being worse but that's purely because of how they coded the stats not an intentional mechanic.

    Back in gen 2, IVs which influence stats also influenced gender. Female pokemon have lower physical attack IVs due to the way gender is determined, but this doesn't apply to female only species like Nidoqueen.

    how long until pokemon are categorised with bodytype A and B instead of this bigoted binary gender system?

      Never because being woke would just fuck over the entire breeding system they've had in place since gen 2.

    Op here. Does gender matter in hg/soulsilver too? Or it's NOT an exact copy of gen 2 right

      It uses gen 4 mechanics so no.

        No, gen 2 only. HG/SS is gen 4. Every gen after 2, gender is meaningless outside of breeding and certain mechanics like Attract. That's it.

        Thanks brosefs

    It doesn't affect stats, but depending on the generation, it may depend on the same data that determines stats and other values like shininess.

    In one game but that's it. Females and Ditto used to be the only Pokemon that could pass on natures with Everstones as well until a given point, the same went for hidden abilities until Game Freak let males pass them on via Ditto breeding. Still relevant for balltism I think, but otherwise there's some species-specific quirks and that's about it.
