Effects on personality value: wording/clearer (I guess 0 is by far most likely if you didn't RNG your ID/SID, so explicitly including lower chances); should slightly skew Ability and Wurmple evos, but I think it's not worth an explicit mention
====Effects on personality value====
In [[Generation IV]] only, when Cute Charm forces a Pokémon to be a specific gender, it does so by modifyingsetting its [[personality value]] to one of 5 setsout of 25 possible values that correspond to the forced gender (one forvalue eachper [[nature]]). The set usedof possible values depends on the gender of the Pokémon with Cute Charm, and if the Pokémon with Cute Charm is female, the wild Pokémon's [[gender ratio]]. This has significant consequences for properties determined by personality value.

Additionally, {{p|Spinda}} whose gender has been forced by Cute Charm in Generation IV only have one of 50 patterns (25 for male, 25 for female).
