In my games, I always pick four I like...for Gen 6, I'll have Fennekin, Keldeo, Xerneas, and Reshiram as my main guys, an HM slave, then an open spot for Pokemon that I want to use only some of the time...like for gyms, or special battles. I always hated that we could only have six at a time. Then I relented and make the permanent six a permanent four and made the last two slots "extra characters" like in Final Fantasy when you get guest characters. Do you utilize such a system or do you like all Pokemon and don't have a set team?
Freya Crescent is awesome...you cannot deny that, EVER.
I hate having to use HM slaves because that basically means you'll have 5 maximum useful team members on your team. And since I don't like many Flying types, I don't like having to rely on the Fly HM either.
Depends on the game. For Kanto, I usually have 5 + a flier. For Johto, I have 4 + a flier and an open spot. For Hoenn, I have 6. For Sinnoh, I have 4 + a flier + an open spot and for Unova I had 6 both times.
Also, TC, your sig speaks so much truth. Such a tragedy that her arc ended so quickly with little resolution. =(
