In other words, if I start a new game as a female protagonist, then will my chances of getting a female as a starter Pokemon increase? Like, 12.5% male, 87.5% female instead of the other way around?
No. Gender Ratio are the same if the Player is Male, Female, Genderless, or a mixture of both.
It will always be 87.5% Male 12.5% Female for starters.
No,my character is a boy and I got a girl infernape and a good thing about that is that its got a 12.5% chance to get a girl.Imagine getting a silver shiny girl chimchar that would be like 1% chance.
