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.
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.
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.
