I try to mix it up every time I play, using as many different types as possible. But sometimes there's overlap; in my last Black playthrough I used Samurott and Seismitoad for example.

Varied typing, I don't care if the types are the same. For instance, After I boxed Serpieror in White 2 I used Keldeo and Cobalion on my team.

I'll try and use varied typings, but if I have a couple of the same type on my team it isn't a big deal. If Chespin does turn out to be Grass/Dark, then I'll have him and Pangoro, but it won't really mater.

I do try not to have Pokémon with shared types on my team, but my primary focus is not having more than 2 Pokémon with a common weakness.

For example, if I'm using Chespin and Sylveon then I've maxed out my allowance for Poison Weakness and I'm not allowed to use any more Pokémon that have a weakness to Poison.

Before Gen 5 it was starter+random pokemon caught and used only for HMs/Revives with the exception of one instance in Silver where I created a team of Eevee and its evolutions but that was pretty much only for the E4.

In Black and Black 2 I did varied typing with no two pokemon having the same type and I'll do the same in X.
Take this post seriously at your own risk.

I catch the Pokémon I want to use and train them. I don't care about having two of the same type in my team, with a few exceptions (I never put more than one Fire, Grass or Water Pokémon in my teams). I also never tried and never will try to fill the Pokédex, because that is just a big waste of time.

Varied typing.
Don't usually repeat a type unless I like both Pokes a lot.

My first playthrough I always try to include all different types. Always my starter, a water (if it's not already my starter), an electric, ground, flying, and normal.
