Why are Pokemon gender differences hard to see?

1 vote

Most of the time, when there is a change between a male Pokemon and female Pokemon, the changes are very minor and hard to see. Why is that?

Best answer

These differences are a reference to sexual dimorphism, which is commonly seen in many real lifeforms and may offer some clues to their biology and behavior.

It is like real animals.

Some Pokemon have extreme differences (ex: Unfezent), while others, not so much (ex: Venusaur).


This is an extreme example.
On the Left: Female
On the Right: Male

Common Pheasents


Not every single one has to be EXTREME. Look and dogs and cats. Just small changes, but overall, same body structure and color and other things.

Could you tell which is which gender??
