Interesting question! There’s not a whole lot of study on Pokémon temperament, which is more of a psychological discipline and thus understudied! I can tell you what I’ve personally observed, though!
Pokémon species often tend to have particular stereotypes associated with them, and quite often there are such stereotypes about attitude, behavior, personality, etc. Now, it’s hardly uncommon for someone to come up and say “Well, MY so-and-so is such-and-such, and not like that at all!” and be perfectly right about that! As always, stereotypes can be misleading! But they tend to exist for a reason, and sometimes that reason is because they’re true more often than not!
When it comes to Pokémon species temperament, that’s more often the case than not! There are more common tendencies for individual species which you tend to see a lot - for instance, your observation of Garchomps being generally irritable and combative (though I rather enjoy the way you put it better than the sciency way!). It’s hard to say exactly why this is, but my tendency is to ascribe it to something physiological - when there’s a large amount of within-species consistency that’s the first place I would look! Of course, it’s purely speculative at this point, but speculation is a good place for science to start!
((Final two week stretch of classes! Then I need to cross my fingers for a post-Christmas miracle that I can get something done for this blog.
Also: thanks to the beautiful handful of new followers! Sorry it’s currently a ghost town over here!))
((After over a year of owning this blog, I finally got my lazy butt to draw a unique logo, rather than crop out a section of an ask/plot post.))
((Have a sketch for a small plot that’s been sitting around for weeks as apology for my inactivity as of recent. Drawing is actually rather taxing on me, so it’s not something I lean on that much after a long day of homework and school.))
((Here’s a fun trivia tidbit: If you thought Clefable was short (about 4 feet), it’s still a foot taller than Reuniclus (3’3”). Bubbles is such a shorty.))
I mean, I know I put in old, sloughed off jelly in those bowls, but… Shoot, you aren’t allergic to Bluk Berries, are you? That purple stain effect should have only been temporary!
((referencing this old post.))
((Man, my new set of college classes are VERY demanding and drain pretty much all of my drawing muse. Which means updates are going to slow to a crawl again. OTL But I still want to maintain the same quality in my drawings, so I won’t sacrifice that just to post more.))

epilogue: Vic ends up with Whisper and avp mod has no morals

((Hey everyone. This isn’t Pokémon-related, but I’m opening an experimental blog with a couple of my original characters. You can ask them questions!
I don’t know how well this blog will hold up, but I hope to better flesh out these characters with it. Updates are probably going to be slow. Hopefully a post a week minimum can be achieved.))

Now that it has been FIVE months of Nibbles being stuck under Anon Magic, I’ve dropped it. Here’s your
terrible excuse explanation how it was lifted prematurely.))
