Meganium's gender

Is it safe to say Meganium is male? In this image (https://imgur.com/a/hziOsNk) you can clearly see its longer curved antennae which matches the look of males. The image also shows it side by side with Vincent's Meganium to show that it does indeed look different from the Meganium introduced before gender differences.

It's also named after a male comedian, so that should further support the argument.--ShallowShaddoll (talk) 12:19, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
Perhaps. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 23:14, 7 April 2020 (UTC)
Meganium's gender is based off the length of its body part or design (in this case, antennae), which is something that is hard to determine, as the animators may be inconsistent in regard to its length (like making it short in one scene and then very long the next).--ForceFire 04:05, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
So I take it as a no? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 07:11, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
I see where you come from, but it's not just the length, but also the "S-shape" of Meganium's antennae that differentiates males from females. Can that be considered evidence to determine its gender? Satsjoe (talk) 13:18, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
No. It's only an "S" shape because it's following the shape of Meganium's head. The female variant does the same.--ForceFire 15:02, 8 April 2020 (UTC)
