Legendaries don't have a true gender...but can act more feminine or masculine. That's how I always treated it. Although in the anime Lugia has a baby...so I think they would have genders..
My final vote is, Yes they have genders, but the game doesn't list them because nobody has really studied legendaries enough to learn how to tell if one is male or female. Or bothered to ask one. People in Illven's pokemon universe are inconsiderate jerks.

Umm. Gerbils? GERBILS?! What is this gerbils nonsense?!?! They are legendary dogs not legendary gerbils
Legendary dogs...modeled off a lion, a sabretooth, and a panther. You might be able to pass Suicune off as a greyhound, but Entei is definitely sporting a rather hefty mane and Raikou is particularly long toothed. So when you crossbreed dogs and cats, what do you get?

To me Entei is clearly the natural progression of Arcanine. Which makes me want Raikou to be the evolution of Manectric (even if they don't look that similar.) Still waiting for a two evolution water dog so Suicune can fit.

Now before we make the guy in front of Sabrina leave, let's give him one more chance and see what we can find in the power plant. Red Baron.
I shall fly you anywhere.
Am I going to really need to get someone out of the box, because I apparently never learned how to swim? Which I clearly remember learning! *sigh* Of course I am.
Jack carry me over the river.
Can't I just give you the power of water-walking?
Oh awesome! Sure.
Let's see what I can find here.
Meh, not a pokemon let's keep looking.
I don't need protection.
Well yeah, that part's obvious.
*face-palm* I cannot believe I just said that.
Still not useful.
Sorry Jack Thunder's too inaccurate.
And I'm pretty sure none of you evolve from this.
Oh Arceus, is that....?
Get in the ball, get in the ball, get in the ball.
Who are you child? To be interrupting my thoughts!?
Are you Zapdos?
My name is Electra, human. I'm master of the thunderstorm. I master of technology. Zapdos is a name imposed by humans that fail to understand my greatness. I am a goddess! No one name may apply to me.
Wait you are a girl?
Yes Nidoking? But we cannot breed. Your newborn would not be able to withstand my godly essence.
If you don't love me, I'll have to kill you!
Hah! Please Nidoking do you think I'm afraid? I do not know fear.
Jango let's capture.
Jango? A hypno correct! Owned by Melinda, daughter of Illven and May?
Do not pretend you can hide from me. I may not be Arceus, but I know a great many things.
No attack can pierce my defense!
I'll show you the power of lighting!
Arrgh! Can't move!
Jango struggle through, and put it to sleep!
I'll flay you alive!
This.... This cannot be! zzzzzz
You may heal, but I'll just attack again!
Now's our chance!
zzz No! No I will not submit!
Aw. That's adorable. You think you have a choice! Zapdos Goddess of thunderstorms, Zapdos is now the sole property of Melinda.
Well let's see if that Rocket guy has moved yet.

Things Jack says
So should I box any of my team for Electra? If so, who?
In the next update we tackle Sliph co. What should the name and personality of the Lapras be?
In addition I'm probably safe for Gary, but just in case what level should I grind to? Gary has
