Some species of {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} have '''differences in appearance due to [[gender]]''' in the [[Pokémon world]], with noticeable differences between the males and females. With the exception of the differences between {{p|Nidoran♂|male}} and {{p|Nidoran♀|female}} 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.
