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?
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).
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.
