This is probably because they're the same except for one small little change.

Butterfree (M) Butterfree (F)

See the markings on the bottom wings? That is the only difference.

Well, actually, if the pokemon isn't obtainable in the wild, and must be transferred, there's no difference. Since Feraligatr must be transferred from Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, Firered, or Leafgreen in order to get it, there's no difference. The creators just didn't want to do this small change for every one of the 493 pokemon.

Really? That's weird. There aren't that many unobtainable Pokemon, you'd think if they bothered doing so many of them, the last few wouldn't be a problem.

Most of the differences are so subtle that IMO, there was really no point making two different sprites in the first place. Instead they could have worked harder on the animations to make them look clean like the ones in Crystal, rather than like the pixel-distorted ones in Emerald. Then again, I suppose different sprites is a new feature they can go on about, whereas animations isn't.

I agree with Sarah. Having two sprites wasn't a good idea if they weren't doing it for all the Pokemon.

I have compared the first and second sprites of some D/P Pokemon and saw some of the animations. For instance, Dragonite only moves its arms out, then back in. But in Crystal, it flaps its wings with its eyes closed, letting out its cry. Also, Mewtwo in Crystal will glow and flash repeatedly, while in D/P he will just pull his arms in closer to him in his usual pose, then go back. They might just be running out of ideas or something.

I can see the difference in this one:

The tuft on the head is higher for the male.

See? Since Rukushio is obtainable in D/P, there's a slight change. :wink:

I feel that the female/male feature was pointless. You can barely tell the difference. It's fun, but they should've spent their time working on other actually noticable things.

+ I agree, I didn't really understand what the thought process was behind that. Fun little feature. . . sure, but overall pointless. I guess it was done to seperate itself from the other versions. (Also, doesn't some of the new features of the PokeDex seem pointless as well?)

there there to show off what the new games can do.

So, basically, Pokemon that can be obtained in-game of Pearl/Diamond would have gender differences. Those importated ones, would not? But, Venusaur has Male/Female differences! Charizard and Blastoise don't.

I pretty much agree with the majority, I can't tell the differences at all!
