I actually know more female gamers than male ones. The fact a few of them can kick my ass in most things is pretty cool too. Hell even my sister can, and will, murder someone in anything from Call of Duty to Street Fighter.
As far as Pokemon is concerned, I can think of five right away that play, while MAYBE two actually care about the natures and stats.
However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.
