I have been breeding my Scyther which is a female and it seems that most of the children are female but I'm not sure if it is just coincidence.
No, the gender of the parent does not influence the gender of the child.
As you can see on that page, the scyther has a 50% chance of being male and a 50% chance of being female. Each Pokemon has a certain percentage of being a certain gender. All starters, have a higher chance of being male and a VERY low chance of being female. Other Pokemon have a 50% chance of being any gender. Other Pokemon such as metagross has no gender at all.
