    Gen 4 brought us gender differences for certain Pokémon. What is your opinion on them, and which is your favorite?

    Personally I think the gender differences was a good thing to add. It gives some Pokémon a little bit more character. I’m upset that gen 4 onwards have very few Pokémon with gender differences, and they’re all the very obvious ones. And gen 7 didn’t have any.

    My favorite is...

    Female Heracross! I love her cute little heart horn.

    I don't really have any opinion on these, apart from them being a nice feature to have

    My favorite gender difference?
    Idk, maybe Torchic because of how invisible it is x3

    I really like gender differences, if they're actually distinct. I'm not too fond of the whole 'oh, the female's teeth/fangs are a little bit shorter'. I like it when the males and females are entirely different looking, like the Nidorans. I think my favorites though are Unfezent. Both male and female versions look cool, but I love how the male is the more colorful one, because that's how birds really are.

    One that I think really needs a gender difference is Sawsbuck. The fact that the females have antlers has always bothered me a lot more than it probably should.

    I dont really mind if Pokémon have a gender difference or not. Though I think my favorite has to be Meowstics gender difference. Both forms look so neat and elegant

    I liked having the subtle differences between males and female of different species and wish they didn't stop doing that. It added an extra sense of realism to the Pokémon that made them feel more 'alive'. Changes like males haveing longer horns/claws/whatever or females having a different color scheme reflect the differences that many real animals have between males and females, which I thought was a really nice touch.

    To be frank I feel like gender differences, aside from Pikachu, are kinda obscure and honestly not much more than a little trivia fact. Maybe when you first find them it’s like “hey cool” and after that it doesn’t really matter.
    Unless, of course, we’re talking things like Gallade and Salazzle.
