If battling with a team of Pokemon of all the same typing such a bad idea...

If battling with a team of Pokemon of all of the same or similar typing is such a Bush Leauge move then why do all of the Gym Leaders and Elite Four Trainers do it?

To make it easier on the players.

That's the thing is that all the gym leaders just feel like a giant tutorial on what weaknesses each type has. There should really be some more difficult end game content with trainers that specifically create well balanced teams so I can't just walk in and start Thundering all their birds out of the sky, or torching all their grass Pokemon. At least rivals seem to usually vary their rosters a bit later in the game when they start carrying a full team of 6.

It's almost as if Pokemon is a game meant for young players to develop strategies against their opponents.
