PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Bulbapedia has a male icon next to Ethan's Marill in Heartgold/Soulsilver, but I was just playing Heartgold, and when he showed me how to catch a Pokemon, his Marill was female. I think this is the only time I've seen him have a female Marill, and I've played the game a lot of times.

The marill just happened to be female in your game because that's happened to me once in my soul silver but in my heart gold the marill was male. Hopefully this answers your question. Hope I helped!

Hmm Bulbapedia might just have it wrong. Will give BA if no one can offer a better explanation.

By random chance, the Marill was chosen to be female. It has a 50/50 chance to be either, and the game random selected it to be female. I am guessing the game has no programming to make it male, unless on random chance. Hope this helps!
