I'm talking about the Virtual Console versions and time capsule in this post, hence my mentioning of Pokémon Bank. Okay, so I need my Pokémon to be all males for breeding purposes. I know that a Pokemon's gender is picked at random when transferred from Gen 1 to Pokémon Bank. Basically, you won't know until after you've transferred it if it's a male or female. Well, in Generations 1 and 2, the gender is determined by DVs or something. If I put my Gen 1 Pokémon (after determining that they're male based on their DVs) in Pokémon Gold, and THEN transfer them to Pokemon Bank, then that should be a way to skip the random picking of gender. Because Gen 2 has genders and a male will stay a male if it gets transferred from Gen 2 as opposed to taking a chance by transferring directly from Gen 1 with the random picking of gender thing. I would be able to verify beforehand if it's a male through Pokémon Gold before I send it permanently to Pokémon Bank. Maybe I could even know BEFORE I send them to Pokémon Gold by checking their DVs in Gen 1. Please tell me if anything I theorized is wrong and if everything I said is possible. Thank you.
