[[File:Blanche Meowstic.png|thumb|right|230px|Two {{p|Meowstic}} present different appearances depending on their gender, as seen in the {{pkmn|anime}}]]
[[File:Pyroar gender difference anime.png|thumb|right|230px|{{p|Pyroar}}'s gender difference in the anime, with the male and femaleFemale respectively]]
Some species of Pokémon have '''differences in appearance due to [[gender]]''' in the [[Pokémon world]], with noticeable differences between the males and femalesFemales. With the exception of the differences between {{p|Nidoran♂|male}} and {{p|Nidoran♀|femaleFemale}} Nidoran (which are considered distinct species), gender differences were introduced in [[Generation IV]].
 
These differences are a reference to {{wp|sexual dimorphism}}, which is commonly seen in many real lifeforms and may offer some clues to their biology and behavior.
In {{game2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}}, in the [[gate]] to [[Canalave City]], [[Professor Rowan]]'s assistant upgrades the player's Pokédex to be able to display [[List of Pokémon with form differences|form differences]], including gender differences. In subsequent games, they are displayed from the start.
 
Later generations would introduce far fewer Pokémon with gender differences, but those that were introduced varied much more drastically in appearance. Two Pokémon, {{p|Meowstic}} and {{p|Indeedee}}, even have different {{DL|Ability|Abilities}} and learn different [[move]]s through [[level]]ing, [[TM]]s and [[breeding]] depending on their gender. Male and femaleFemale Indeedee even have different [[stats]]. However, most Pokémon look identical despite their gender.

** It was also the first [[generation]] to introduce [[:Category:Pokémon that evolve based on gender|gender-based evolution]].
* Conversely, [[Generation VIII]] introduced the fewest Pokémon with gender differences of generations that introduce Pokémon with gender differences, with only one.
* [[Generation VII]] is the only generation that did not introduce any Pokémon that have gender differences. However, it did introduce a Pokémon that can only evolve if it is a specific gender (only femaleFemale {{p|Salandit}} can evolve into {{p|Salazzle}}) and a new gender difference for {{p|Eevee}} that was exclusive to the player's {{ga|partner Pokémon|partner}} Eevee.
* No [[Mega Evolution]]s, [[Gigantamax]] forms, or [[regional form]]s have gender differences, even if other forms of the same species do.
* Despite having very prominent gender differences, {{p|Hippopotas}} and {{p|Hippowdon}} only have artwork and a menu sprite for the male version.
* Despite not having any gender differences, the [[Rotom Pokédex]] will display separate models for male and femaleFemale {{p|Spinda}}.
