I usually only catch/train Pokemon that look like they fit that gender. Like I'd never catch a male Audino. Or a female Mr. Mime. If they can be either, I usually prefer male, but it isn't a requirement. And I usually don't like starters (with the exception of the Chikorita family) to be female.

ATM, I'm breeding for male Hoenn starters with good natures. The pronoun I use when referring to a Pokemon is usually "he" (unless it's Gardevoir or something). Even with most Legendaries. Might as well breed them that way.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
No. I just use whatever they happen to be. I choose my nickname based on the sex, though, usually. I usually name them human names. But I don't even mind using 'cross-gender' naming so I guess not really.
But like I had a Probopass that was female once, and I thought it was funny so I named her 'Misstache.' And I named my Nosepass in Ruby or Sapphire (whichever one I found it in first XZD) "Nosetta" (like the Rosetta Stone since it's a rock, and like Nose... and Rosetta sonds like a woman's name and it was a female. But I probably easily could have called a male that, too...)
I usually play both games and choose the male character in one and the female character in the other, too.
To me sex is not very important or meaningful. It's just a normal part of life, and in the game, a part of some minor mechanics.
