I'm going to have to disagree with "there are no female hardcore pokemon fans". I actually know more girls who like pokemon than boys who do irl. I think the distinct absence of girl hackers is probably because they think that all the guy hackers won't take them seriously, and that they'll be bullied off the various forums like so many n00bs do. A lot of hackers on the big forums aren't nice to n00bs, and whilst some people can see that and think "ok, I know what not to do" others just don't bother even starting. So, my take on it is that either there is more girl hackers than we realize (possibly pretending to be guys?) or that we keep scaring them off before we actually get a chance to see what they can do. Just my two cents
