Pikachu and Eevee didn’t always have aesthetic changes based on gender, but now that they do, you may want to start with a female one in Pokemon: Let’s Go. Female Pikachu and Eevee both have heart shapes on their tails! See the difference below, and the steps you need to take to get which gender you want.

Steps to Get a Female Pikachu or Eevee
This is the gist of what to do to get a girl Eevee or Pikachu – we’ll update this section with more specifics when Pokemon: Let’s Go is available.
- Start a new game
- Get your Pikachu or Eevee
- Take a close look at its tail. Pikachu’s tail will be heart-shaped at the end if it’s female, and the white part of Eevee’s tail will be heart-shaped (curved instead of jagged) if it’s female.
- Start your game over if it’s not the gender you want.
Probability of Getting a Female Pikachu or Female Eevee 
Getting a female Starter Pokemon is notoriously difficult, as they tend to appear much more often as male. However, it should be easier to find a female Pikachu in Let’s Go, considering its gender ratio – basically, the percentage at which a Pokemon appears as either male or female.
Pikachu Gender Ratio
50% Female – 50% Male
Eevee Gender Ratio
11.9% Female – 88.1% Male
Keep in mind these ratios were pulled from previous core Pokemon games, and though they have never changed before, they may be different in Pokemon: Let’s Go. This page will be updated once confirmed.
