In Generation II, a Pokémon's [[gender]] is determined based solely on its physical {{stat|Attack}} IV when compared to a [[List of Pokémon by gender ratio|valuegender specific to each Pokémon speciesratio]]. A Pokémon is female if its physical Attack IV is less than or equal to its species' gender coderatio, otherwise it is male. For species that are exclusively one gender or have no gender, the calculation based on the Attack IV is ignored.
Due to this calculation, it is impossible to obtain a female Pokémon with high physical Attack, unless the Pokémon is a member of an all-female species like {{p|Jynx}} or {{p|Chansey}}. Starter Pokémon and others with a gender ratio of seven males to one female suffer the most, with the maximum physical Attack IV for a female Pokémon of those species being 1.
