Since it seems like the new generation is revamping, do you think they'll retconned or fix some Pokemon's gender? For instant, Gallade is male only, should they make Gardevoir female only now? Not saying this because it's now a Fairy type but because it has a lady-like appearance.

Or maybe make the Machamp family male due to their male-like appearance.

Just a thought.

Yes, fairy type should be female only.

They already did, why would some Azurill experience a sex change when they evolve into Marills?

I hope not! It's funny that Gardevoir can be male.

That's not "retcon" so much as "shoddy programming".

The games are Japanese. Mr. Mime's Japanese name doesn't imply any specific sex.

And anyway, other than maybe fixing Azurill, I don't see them retconning Pokemon gender. In fact, such a thing would be an obstacle to transferring, and anything that would prevent transferring I am always 100% against.

Honestly? I don't think so. And I don't think they should. Sure, some Pokemon may give an specific gender vibe, but seeing as how that is a matter of perception on our part (mostly), I don't see it as a big problem anyway.
