With recent changes to {{Pokémon}}, some things may look a little funny. In particular, all Pokémon that haven't had their gender parameter updated to the new format are displaying as 100% male, regardless of what the old text says. It may take a while but I will be gradually working on updating the affected pages. --Eithris (talk) 04:35, 8 November 2018 (UTC)
