PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Okay, so my little sister is playing her first Pokemon game in Hoenn(my favorite region, it's the best) and I wanted to catch a female ralts for her as a surprise, since she likes Gardevoir. Anyway, I go to 102 in her game and start walking around, instant soft resetting(it's an emulator), every time I hit a Ralts, and so far, out of at least 20 encounters with a Ralts, EVERY SINGLE ONE has been male. It's driving me crazy, since ralts is already super rare. What are the chances of this happenning?

Forgive me if I'm overreacting, I'm just really frustrated.
Probably Emulator problems or insane RNG luck or unluck(is that even a word).
It's not emulator, since I run into both genders of every single other pokemon, I also have never found a Seedot so far.
Btw you don't need a female to get Gardevoir
I know, but I think male Gardevoir is wierd and always try to get a female.
Are you sure your Pokemon do not have cute charm?
Yes, none of them do.

Wow, male dominance.

Since there is a 50% chance per ralts, and there are 20, you raise 1/2 to the power of 20. 9.5367431641×10−7 is the value. Basically, converting that, that is equal to .00000095367431641 (I think idk)

Thanks TPB. This is crazy!
It's probably not that low as it's an emulator and the encounters are probably janked up in some way, but it is definitely extremely rare
I know it's not frozen or whatever, because I just caught male number 22 and it had a different nature than a male one I caught at the beginning in case I couldn't find a female.
YES! Ralts number 23 was female, finally!
