One thing that I've always found odd, most Pokémon are characters with genders yet Nintendo has always referred to them as "it." And you know how people find "it" as insulting, it's can be cringey when anthropomorphized animals are called "it" because they are so close to humans that the pronoun "it" just doesn't sound right. People even use "he" and "she" for their pets. There have been a few instances where Pokémon were referred by gendered pronouns but they've mostly called it. Even Meowth from Team Rocket was called "it" despite being the most human Pokémon in the show. I'm just wondering, does it feel right to call Pokémon it?
