Can you bear to use two pokemon of the same type?

I don't really mind too much, especially if they have a different secondary type. I do try to aim for variety, but some overlap doesn't usually hurt.

My first time going through B2 I had Scrafty/Krookodile and Lucario/Magnezone.

So yeah a Heracross was torture

Oh, and in my White 1 playthrough I had Scrafty and Krookodile.

Of course. Any team works in-game, but for WiFi battles and such, I mix types up.

I can't stand it. Out of the question.
(unless I'm doing a mono-type team)
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

For the people correcting/making jokes about TC's grammar:

On topic:
Sometimes, though I've only done so rarely. The four times I can recall are 1) Beautifly and Skarmory on the same team in Ruby, 2) Torterra and Garchomp in Platinum (though I never finished that runthrough), 3) Victini and Chandelure in BW, and 4) Samurott and Starmie in BW2.

Only one of those four times was either Pokemon a single-type, and that's because it was my starter.
....because shutup.

I played through soul silver with 4 of the pokemon weak to fire and 5 of the pokemon weak to water...

It really depends on the situation.

In a situation where one of the Pokemon's types doesn't have any value to me, I will make an exception.

In HeartGold, I didn't care much about Butterfree's Flying-Typing. So, I had an Aerodactyl as my Flying-Type and a Butterfree on my main team.

In a situation where both of the Pokemon's Types have some value to me, I can't have another Pokemon with either of those 2 Types.

In White 2 I originally wanted to use both Lucario and Excadrill. But since the Steel-Typing of both Pokemon had value, I had to dump Excadrill for Haxorus.

I'm the same way. I often have multiple Flying-type pokémon. I do try to have unique typing for all members though, usually. However, I would not hesitate to accept a Poison-type when I have one of the Gastly line, a flier when I have a Gyarados, a Steel-type when I have Empoleon, etc.

I started a Nuzlock run in my old Platinum (but ended up not following the fainting rules, just the capturing ones, stupid critical hits) and they almost all share one type with at least one other.

Empoleon and Gastrodon--both Water but don't share any weaknesses

Empoleon and Bronzong--both Steel but again, don't share weaknesses (Levitate)

Crobat and Roserade--both Poison, the only ones that share a weakness, Psychic

The last is Rapidash, the only one that's a totally unique type.
