I'm not asking what the gender ratio of a starter Pokémon is. I already know that it has an eighty-seven-point-five chance of being male, and a twelve-point-five chance of being female. In other words, that's a seven-to-one ratio of a male; and, thus, a one-to-seven ratio of a female.
What I'm wondering is—why? I mean, I already know the obvious reason; it's because they want female starters to be rare. I understand that part.
But . . . it's exceedingly frustrating for me, personally, as a person who, frankly, enjoys the Pokémon games and plays them a lot, to know that there is such a difference between the chance of a male and female starter. Why is that the case? Is there a legitimate reason, or is it just because Nintendo and Game Freak like to aggravate us with the fact that female starter Pokémon are so hard to get?
I may just be overthinking this—I tend to do that a lot—and I'm sorry if this explanation seems so complicated and intricate. I just . . . wonder about the Pokémon world sometimes. There typically isn't much thought put toward the logistics, or it doesn't seem like there is. Some clarification would definitely be helpful. Thanks!
