What I mean is, when you play a game, do you have somekind of mindset of what should be on your team. Usually for me I always try to have a Fire, Water, Electric, and Flying poke on my team, while the last 2 are usually filler depending on what i need by looking at the first four guys and there typings/movesets, but usually this is what I end up with: Fire, Water, Electric, Flying, Dark, Steel I always have a water type for Surf and always have a flying type for Fly.
How about you guys? Do you have it planned out when you start up a new generation of games? Or do you just go with the flow and dont let type barriers prevent you from using pokemon?
Usually a Ground, Electric or Dragon Pokemon among the other 3 if they're not attached to one of the F/W/G --- 'Success rates are but scientific theory. A brave heart will defy any odds!' 'Don't beg for things, do it yourself or else you won't get anything.'
I try to have a Water type for Surfing and a Flying type for, well, Flying. Otherwise it's whatever I feel like, as long as I get decent Type coverage. --- That is not dead which can eternal lie, And with strange aeons even death may die.
Not really, at least nowadays - I'm confident enough I'll beat the game with whatever . I used to have a bizarre notion of a "balanced" team that involved the three starter types and three "tricky" types: Steel, Dragon and Ghost. Then Platinum came along, with its rather iffy type distribution, and put an end to that.
Only tradition I've kept is at least one Water-type, but I mightn't bother with that for Y (or X or whatever).
I almost always get the Grass type starter and pick Pokemon I like from there, while trying to get a Pokemon for every matchup or situation. --- Official DEM PANTS of the PS4 KH3 Board http://i.imgur.com/pFfdC.gif Currently playing: Yearly playthrough of the Assassin's Creed games, Battlefield 3, P4A
Other than usually trying to have a Pokémon with Surf, anything goes for me. Whichever pokemon strike my fancy, types not a factor other than the fact that I usually try to not repeat the same type on my team unless I really like both pokemon. --- ~ Master of Electricity ~ Electro: 0518-6613-7620 - Pokemon White
