Sonee & Rosey
Sonees and Roseys (sometimes Rosees) are the pre-evolutionary forms of Sonichus and Rosechus. Their colors generally correspond to their type. Most Electric Hedgehog Pokémon in the comic started out as eggs that fell out of a rainbow and hatched as Sonees and Roseys.
Technically, baby versions of the two main characters Sonichu and Rosechu never could have existed because they were transformed directly from a Pikachu and Raichu, not Pichu, their pre-evolved form. It's generally understood that the "miracle of birth" does not provide Sonichu offspring with their shoes, bows, and skirts shown, but of course there are contradictions. Whatever the case, they seemingly automatically gain clothing upon evolution... but again there are contradictions.  No member of Chaotic Combo (or Silvana), corresponds to the "Original Sonee and Rosey," but rather to the chromatic range of the rainbow. There's also a continuity in the attire with the "Sonichu/Rosechu" species; "Sonees" are stark-naked with shoes while "Roseys" wear dresses.
Although Chris has stated that he finds them cute, most Sonichu readers reacted with disgust when first confronted with these tiny, ugly creatures, and they are generally considered to be among the most aggravating characters; their lack of comprehensible (relatively speaking; most Sonichu dialogue is at least in something that resembles English) speech being a major cause of anger. Their physical appearance is also a source of much disgust, as it is an overload of conventionally "cute" characteristics, done horribly wrong. Chris basically tried too hard to make them cute, and the result is deeply unappealing.
The appearance of Sonichu and Rosechu's Children in "A Sonichu Day" is especially revolting, as Chris not only writes their typical awful dialogue but even reads it aloud with an attempt at a cute voice. Their appearance in "Chris + Sarah's Life-Shares", where he uses them to represent younger versions of himself and Sarah Nicole Hammer, is also horrific when you realize just how contrived and passive-aggressive it all is.
The pre-evolved form of Rosechu. According to Chris her so called "cuteness" always gets the awe of her enemies, and when she falls, her skirt acts as a parachute. This last feat is physically impossible, but never mind that, because it offers an opportunity for panty-shots; that is, it would if they had panties, and the fact that they don't only makes it even worse. It is implied that Roseys are born without any clothing, and shoes and skirts are purchased separately. The Rosey form of Bubbles, for instance (see right), was never born with a skirt. The birth of Sandy appears to confirm this,  but as always there are problems with consistency throughout the franchise.
A cursory examination of the birthdates of Sonichu and Rosechu's Children implies that Rosechus have a gestation period of around three months. This amount of time would, for an intelligent mammal like a Sonichu, be woefully inadequate, even for monotremes, which possibly explains why Sonees and Roseys always appear retarded and half-baked. However, Pokémon eggs hatch quite quickly, but this is simply an in-game mechanic for the sake of playability.
Sonees and Roseys seem to vary a lot in intelligence. As infants, the Chaotic Combo could only say their own names (which is supposed to be how Pokémon communicate). Also, the "original" Sonee and Rosey can only say "Goo-Goo," suggesting they start with even less intelligence. However, the Sonichu children are capable of speaking in complete (albeit mangled) sentences: Sandy was able to talk right after she was born. This rather gigantic discrepancy in intelligence has been addressed in Mailbag 23 in which Chris states that Cerah, Christine and Robbie learned English from their parents and that the Chaotic Combo didn't have English-speaking guardians, which is a flagrant contradiction as Bubbles started speaking English while trying to rescue her "mother" and Wild knew English as a Sonichu without apparently being taught it. Even if these things weren't patently made up, they don't address why Sandy could speak right after being born. To further confound the situation, Magi-Chan informs the readers via the customary textwall that Wild had to teach Sandy English after she demonstrated fluency with the language, implying that she didn't know it beforehand. Regardless of this, they are all still of inferior intelligence.
It is also worth noting that Sonees and Roseys do not wear the white gloves that Sonichu and Rosechu wear at all times; acquiring the gloves is likely a rite-of-passage type scenario. Disturbingly, Sonees and Roseys have rounded stumps rather than hands which gives them the appearance of thalidomide babies, but knowing Chris, he probably ripped them off from the creatures from the Sonic games known as Chao. The Animal Crossing designs and a teddy-bear creature from Excel Saga called "Puchuu" may also have substantial influence on the design of Sonees and Roseys. Despite having no opposable thumbs, the mutant baby Pokémon are somehow able to perform tasks that require them with their stubby arms, such as baking cookies and playing PSPs.
There's also the strong possibility that Sonichu and Rosechu's children are not representative of the typical Sonee & Rosey Poké-type. In Sonichu #10, Sandy Rosechu went from hatching from an egg to her mature form and the intellectual skills of a fourth grader inside of a single week while Punchy evolved to his full form in a single day, even though he had his tail traumatically amputated. This leaves us to formulate the hypothesis that Sonichu's children are kinda slower than the average to evolve into their adult forms (so far only Christine has achieved it]]. Another possibility is that Sandy evolved rapidly because her father lavished attention on her, while Cerah, Christine and Robbie are left with the nanny while their parents are forced to fulfill the wishes of a deranged tyrant. Yet another theory is that Sonees and Roseys evolve more rapidly under stressful situations (see Bubbles and Punchy), thereby suggesting Wild's attention is a lot less wholesome than the comic would lead you to believe.
