With each new generation, i always put together a team of pokemon from that gen only. I've never had problems with this, even in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 i managed to put together 4 different teams Unova only without having 2 pokemon of the same types in my team, however, i'm having difficulties setting up a team in Pokemon X. I've only decided on 3 pokemon

Greninja (Water/Dark)
Talonflame (Fire/Flying)
Tyrantrum (Dragon/Rock)

I originally wanted Helioptile in my team, but i changed my mind when i saw Heliolisk's design. And theres literally no other Electric types to choose from except that Pikaclone that most likely has horrible stats.
Then i wanted a grass type, and i got happy when i saw how many there were to choose from, but no one them had a spot in my team. I don't really like Gourgeist design that much. It looks OK, but it doesn't look like it fits into my team. Trevenants looks really messy, but he somewhats fits into my team. I would have chosen Florges, havent been for the fact THAT ITS NOT PART GRASS TYPE. It looks like a grass type, but it isn't. My OCD probably won't let me have this on my team if i already have a grass type, even if it isn't a grass type.
For the last spot, i almost literally have nothing left to choose from. Lets say i fill spot 4 and 5 with:
Trevenants (Grass/Ghost)
Heliolisk (Elec/Normal)
What other Pokemon can i choose now?
I'm looking at the full pokemon list right now, and the only pokemon i could choose now without repeating a type in my team would be:
Florges
Meowstic
Slurpuff
Avalugg
Xerneas.

I've already said why i wont choose Florges, and Xerneas is legendary, soo
Meowstic, Slurpuff or Avalugg...
Meowstic is too small to fit in my team, Slurpuff is too small and i don't like its design, and my OCD won't let me have a water type and a pure Ice type in my team together. Well fudge

Why not choose an older pokemon and use its mega evolution on your team?

My inner and evil OCD still counts that as using an old pokemon

Yea, have a mega evolution on your team. It'll be a waste not using any, especially when only old Pokemon get them. You'll be missing out :(

The only problem I have with my team is the abundance of awesome dragon types and fairy types introduced this gen making it hard to not double up on types.

To be honest I don't really "plan out a team" before I get a new game.

For the first play through I prefer to just explore the new routes, seeing what new Pokemon I can encounter and catch along the way, and then deciding if I like the look of them and want to use them on my team.
Currently taking a break from AC:NL. Will start a new town on new year's day. n_n

How about vivilon? Ok it's a flying type like talonflame but picture show it learning psychic type moves so it could definitely fill the niche of bug/psychic special sweeper.

Also worth considering is dragalge, yes you have a water starter but dragalge loses that typing on evolution.

And you can't go wrong with Aegislash imo.
