I believe there will be, with Sylveon being the female one.

I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

There is absolutely nothing that could lead one to believe that Sylveon will be female-only except for stupidity and sexism. For all we know, Sylveon will be male-only: http://goo.gl/g092q

Sylveon could be the Trap pokemon and be male only

And I would laugh so damn hard

That term is super transphobic, don't use that crap.

I fail to see sexism in thinking the over-the-top cute pokemon could be made female only. Especially in a generation of games titled X and Y.

It's completely understandable to assume some genetic significance to the titles, which would make gender exclusive forms of a genetically unstable Pokemon a great advertisement focus.

Sheesh, I'm so incredibly sick of people that try to find racism and sexism in every little thing. It's obnoxious.

So a pink creature covered in bows doesn't scream girl to the targeted audience of this game?

Because over-the-top cuteness is not a quality exclusive to females, not in humans or in Pokemon. Insisting on the perpetuation of such gender stereotypes, keeping everybody in boxes, is sexism.

Yes, racism and sexism are obnoxious. The people who point them out, contrary to popular belief are not "looking to be offended" or "overly sensitive" or anything of the sort. We just see things that you don't. Maybe consider trying to see things from our perspective rather than assuming the worst.

Let's ask Gardevoir, Lopunny, Gothitelle, Jigglypuff, Clefairy, and Munna.

I do agree that a lot of times people seek it out. But in this case it is sexism for all the reasons Twilight_Sonata said.
