So the games actually use the misnomer. Alright. Then a move isn't necessary. However, somewhere either near the top of the article, in a section "In relation to the real world" - as in the Evolution article, or in the trivia (least appropriate location of the three) it should mention that gender in Pokémon is really more akin to the real-world definition of {{wp|sex}} (not sexual intercourse, but the biological quality of an individual). It's not just science - and it's not about [[Pidgeotto (Pokémon)|pigeon-holing]] either - it's about not being discriminatory. I have transgendered friends. I know transexual individuals as well. They're different, and they prefer to be identified correctly, rather than being lumped together. It's like how we could say that that [[Dawn's Buneary]] is female, but it could actually be the other sex, and just identify with the female gender (note this is different than a suggestion that it is homosexual in liking [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]]).

:Look, the reason the games use the word "gender" is because it is a commonly accepted euphimism for biological "sex". '''''[[User:GuyNamedSean|Sean...]] [[Dialga (Pokémon)|Lord]] [[User talk:GuyNamedSean|of the]] [[Darkrai (Pokémon)|Shadows!!!]]''''' 20:33, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
== Gender Counterparts ==
Alright, I keep seeing the argument about Tauros/Miltank connection, but people keep using other examples, specificly Nidoran♂/Nidoran♀ and Volbeat/Illumise. Could someone please confirm the relations of the Pokémon with '''known''' genderal relations, suspected relations, and just plain similarities?
