I mainly have only some of my more developed Trainer/human OCs on my Charahub, but I have more than plenty of actual Pokémon characters I can give you a brief taste of here. Characters will be grouped together because of pre-established relationships with each other.
Percival the Mega Gallade: Gay Cat Dad™, gets his accent from Lyru. Acts like he’s actually a cat and does all of the cat things, which gets ironic considering his sheer intelligence.
Lyru the Mega Gardevoir: Percival’s borderline sadistic cat husband, very british. Insists his Mega form has a funeral gown for the deaths of his enemies. Genius when he wants to be, snarky or not.
Nouveau the Gardellade: Experimental result of splicing DNA from two same-sex Pokémon to create new life. Artificial cat son of Percival and Lyru, his evolution went awry when a decision couldn’t be made in time, making him a strange Gallade/Gardevoir hybrid. He is a chimeric shiny, further explained in the shiny Pokémon headcanon at the bottom of the post.

Paladin the Golisopod: Strong, independent bug mama who only needs her lizard wife and her immense weakness for ridiculously small baby Pokémon. Doesn’t like to admit when she’s hungry bc she’s a Very Large Insect™ and aware that she eats a heck ton of food.
Azalea the Salazzle: Enjoys basking in warm sunshine and frying Fairy-Types to a toxic crisp. Constantly fawning over her bug wife’s Muscles™ and how their shininess makes them look the same.

Dente the Mega Mawile: Quite literally a baby, like, seriously young for a Steel-Type Pokémon. Naïve and way too dependent on the Medicham who coddles her, and by Arceus does she not know her own strength, either.
Angee the Mega Medicham: Overprotective of Dente, took her in as a little sister to watch over, and absolutely spoils her with affection. Would die for the chompy child any day, and doesn’t trust anyone else much either.

Jax the Bisharp: [insert edgy backstory feat. relatable personality]

Shorty the Mega Manectric: A tiny shiny, as O’Leary likes to call her. She is a trans girl, and she counts herself lucky for her height so no Pokémon glances under her belly to address her by what she’s packing.
O’Leary the Mega Houndoom: Impatient and aggressive, and loves her girlfriend to the moon and back. Out of the two of them, it’s O’Leary that gets the most upset when Shorty is harassed or misgendered.

I do also have a “shiny Pokémon headcanon” that’s posted in the EXTRA section of all my posted Pokémon OCs, but for convenience, I’ll post it here as well.
GIIMA’S “SHINY PKMN HEADCANON”:
Pokémon with the ‘shiny’ genetic pattern are most notable for their off-palette, glittering exterior; but they’re more common than one might think, and unfortunately there’s so much more against their favor.
In the wild, shiny Pokémon are most often killed by their parents in fear of the young defect attracting attention from predators and such, and also as an act of mercy to take them out of an otherwise sickly life. The ones that survive have immense difficulty fitting in to their ecosystem’s organism niche, and in most cases die of starvation within the first stage of life.
Thanks to human medicine, shiny Pokémon are able to grow healthier in captivity, and although their colors are much valued in Contests, in terms of battle they are far more than subpar due to the genetic strand’s mutation disrupting physical attributes alongside color differences. With diligent care, enough patience, and unconditional TLC from its Trainer, a shiny Pokémon can most certainly thrive and lead a happy, normal life. They can also be legally given the option to breed, which on the bad side does increase the risk of having more shiny mutations in their offspring, and the deadliest form of the genetic disruption: chimeric shinies.
Chimeric shinies are the most frail and sickly variant out of the shiny mutation, their color palette a blotchy hybrid of a regular Pokémon and a shiny Pokémon. Although harrowingly beautiful, a chimeric shiny will die from internal problems within the first hours of life unless given heavy-duty life support and dietary support nonstop.
There have been few cases of chimerics living to be healthy Pokémon, and it’s not at all impossible to raise a chimeric, but it is by far the most difficult and expensive variant of the ‘shiny’ gene to keep alive.
