Overview and Guide about Pokémon Gender in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Genders

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Gender in Battle

In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, the Pokémon you obtain can be male, female, or genderless. Upon encountering Pokémon in the wild and engaging them in battle, you will be able to know their gender as indicated by its name and HP above them. Your own Pokémon’s gender is displayed on the lower-left portion of the screen alongside its own name and HP.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus - Gender outside of Battle

Outside of battle, your Pokémon’s gender is indicated by the symbols ♂ and ♀ for male and female respectively in the party screen (just after its level). If no symbol is displayed, the Pokémon is genderless.

Legendary and Mythical Pokémon

Most Legendary and Mythical Pokémon are genderless. In the game, the most prominent example of this is Arceus who is told in the legend to have shaped the universe using its 1,000 arms. Other genderless Pokémon in the game include the mythical Pokémon Darkrai and Shaymin (Land Forme).

Effect of Gender in the Game

Have Yet to Be Revealed

It is currently unknown what effects a Pokémon’s gender will have in the game. In past Pokémon games, moves like Attract will only work if the foe is of the opposite gender to the user. Similarly, a Pokeball like the Love Ball will have a higher chance of successfully catching wild female Pokémon if your active Pokémon is male (and vice-versa).

Pokémon gender was also taken into consideration when breeding Pokémon in previous titles. For two Pokémon to create offspring, they must be of the opposite gender and of the same species. A Pokémon can also be paired with the genderless Pokémon Ditto who can breed with any Pokémon regardless of gender or species.

More information on the effects of the Pokémon gender will be added when the game comes out.
