Gen 1-2 I soloed with my starter and occasionally used a legendary.
Gen 3-4 I stick to 4-5 and one HM slave.
Gen 5 I use 6 Pokemon, with proper movesets. I use the HM if I need to but only on moves with TMs so I can erase them and put back my proper movesets. --- This is a sig. Yup.

For going through White 2 I used 6, but I didn't even get my sixth until near the end. I've always had an HM slave too, but he was boxed after the sixth team member. --- I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Always 6, usually swap stuff out to try new pokemon. HM slave usually sits in box until I need it.
Having 8 and swapping two out seems an interesting idea. Will have to see in X/Y --- Sic vis pacem, para bellum. Don't make me HM01 you.

I usually run 3 or 4 for most of the game and fill out the rest at the end. Sometimes it's with a legend and sometimes just a Pokemon for lolz.
Though for challenge I've been doing random solo runs on Pearl and HG. Depending on the draw it's not always so easy. --- "If you level up a Swellow at night then give it a Dusk Stone [they didn't exist yet] then it will evolve into Ostricho." ~ The Legend of Ostricho
