So we should just refer to all of them as it.

Meh, I'm too lazy to such a thing. All will be referred to as male till proven otherwise, "-first decree of the internet."

Vulpixs are always SHEs.
Just like how Emboars are always HEs.

I can see a big tough scary mom, in female emboar.

It is a exercise of creativeness to picture different gender pokémon, but i can do it. So far I only failed with Timbur, Machop and Geodude lines

I think it's silly, but understandable.

Do you also consider it weird for languages to refer to inanimate objects with gendered pronouns, like Spanish, German, and even English in some circumstances?

So do you hate people who speak languages that have no word for "it"? For example, in French, everything is either male or female, even something like an apple. If there is a group of things and at least one thing is male, the whole group is referred to as male. Does that really annoy you that their language has no other thing to call them?
