Does anyone else always organize their Pokémon's moves in a certain way? I like to sort mine by colour (i.e. where they appear in the spectrum).

I do many of the same things everyone listed but I am wondering if I am the only one that checks all the trash cans. Haven't found anything in a few games but I will always check those cans.

I don't order them by color, but I do have them arranged in a certain way. Normal-type moves go in the first slot. They typically have a lot of PP and I can waste them on random encounters without worrying about running out of steam. Special-type moves go second (Basically any attacking move that isn't normal type) they have more power usually but less PP, so I use those for trainer/gym battles or mons that won't go down to normal attacks.
Status go in the last slot(s).

OMG now that you mention it, I DO!

If say the 4 following moves were on a Pokemon:

Quick Attack
Spore
Sucker Punch
Discharge

I would arrange it in name length order from shortest to longest like this:

Spore
Discharge
Quick Attack
Sucker Punch

I do this with ALL my Pokemon

I do this too. But you're right, I think OR/AS might have been the last gen where I found anything in a trash can. Don't lose heart fellow treasure hunter, our day will come!

I check all the trash bins I come across as well. I also check every potted plant ever since I found out that there were several hidden items in the potted plants at Sylph Company in LG/FR.

I pretty much use the same 12 Pokemon in every game where the dex allows it. I also got with the same sets and try to get them over to newer gen game asap in a new play through.

99% of my mons are built for a specific type matchup, EV trained abilities to maximize a Super Effective move set.

I put the main move at the top to minimize clicks, with the setup/status move under it. Recovery moves next and the last slot is for whatever, usually a buff or assist when in a group/team.

I seem to always have Box 1 clear and empty because whenever Pokemon are transferred in or come back from Poke Jobs, they appear there. I cannot have any Pokemon in Box 1. Whenever I catch a new Pokemon, I move it over to another box right away!

I have never done this before gen 8. I only recently started doing it partially for the reasons you mentioned, but also because I find it to be easier when masudaing. I literally want all of my eggs in one basket.

I have a few:
1) I like to avoid having more than one Pokemon of the same type on the same team, and also more than two Pokemon that share a weakness on the same team, unless that shared weakness is a type you don't run into very often in a certain region or I have decent coverage.
2) I'm picky about which Poke Balls my Pokemon are in, I don't like having more than two of the same type of Poke Ball in a team of six, but sometimes with things like Starters, Fossils and other gift Pokemon which almost always come in ordinary Poke Balls, this is unavoidable.
3) I like to have a good array of species in any one team, mammals, birds, reptiles, inanimate objects, that kind of thing, but not too many of one.
4) Whenever a generation introduces a new thing (Mega Evolution, the Fairy-type, regional forms, Gigantamax etc.), I always want to have at least one Pokemon on a team that represents this new thing. For example in X and Y I always had a Fairy-type and something that can Mega evolve on every team I used, and in Alola I would always use at least one Alola regional form (uaually either Raichu or Muk)
5) As far as Pokemon themselves, my usual team set up is at least four brand new Pokemon introduced in that region, and at least one older Pokemon, but this varies depending on what's actually available in what region.
