A lot of these are rather subjective. I'll admit, most do seem more geared toward one gender, but a lot are just personal taste, really. To me, Blaziken actually seems more of a feminine Pokémon. I guess when you consider its origin in cockfighting male would make more sense, but I've always thought it looks feminine. And nothing's wrong with that. You also mention some odd ones like glameow and poliwrath. These ones I didn't really think stuck out as either gender, and skitty really only seems girlish because of the pink color.Female Machop line, female Seedot line, Male, Bellossom, Male Lopunny and Buneary, male Skitty line, female Infernape, female Poliwrath, female Blaziken, male Milotic, male Glameow line, female Embore and pignight, female Darantan, female Tumbber line, male Gothita line, hemale Zoroark, and female Scafty line all says hi and no one comaplains about then and now people are Bironne. If you never complained about the Pokemon mentioned and then you started complaining about Pokemon gender mixups now even though Pokemon having genders since generation two.
No, I think the problem with Brionne is that it is closer to those ones like gardevoir, gothitelle, and machoke. They are essentially wearing gender-specific clothes, something which makes it a lot harder to see past any gender stereotypes. Like, if they wanted machoke to not look so masculine, it could be wearing a similar piece of black clothing over its chest (at least on the female version). Similarly, I think it looks like Brionne is wearing a dress, a piece of clothing typically associated with females. And therefore it comes off as a "girly" Pokémon. I don't have a problem with that myself, I just wanted to point out how some of your examples work and why I think some don't...
