Because R/B/Y didn't have them, while G/S/C did, what would happen when you used the Time Capsule?

In Generation II, a Pokémon's gender was determined through its Attack IV. Due to this, unless a Pokémon was a member of an all-female species, such as Nidoran♀ and Smoochum, it could never have a maximized Attack stat, as female Pokémon were given the lower half of the IV range. This also caused the inability for a female Pokémon of a species with a gender ratio of seven males to one female, like Eevee or the starter Pokémon, to be Shiny, due to that also running partly off of the Attack IV.

It would depend on the Pokemon's IVs.
