What I mean is, when you play a game, do you have somekind of mindset of what should be on your team. Usually for me I always try to have a Fire, Water, Electric, and Flying poke on my team, while the last 2 are usually filler depending on what i need by looking at the first four guys and there typings/movesets, but usually this is what I end up with:
Fire, Water, Electric, Flying, Dark, Steel
I always have a water type for Surf and always have a flying type for Fly.

How about you guys? Do you have it planned out when you start up a new generation of games? Or do you just go with the flow and dont let type barriers prevent you from using pokemon?

1 Fire, 1 Water, 1 Grass

Usually a Ground, Electric or Dragon Pokemon among the other 3 if they're not attached to one of the F/W/G

I try to have a Water type for Surfing and a Flying type for, well, Flying. Otherwise it's whatever I feel like, as long as I get decent Type coverage.

Not really, at least nowadays - I'm confident enough I'll beat the game with whatever . I used to have a bizarre notion of a "balanced" team that involved the three starter types and three "tricky" types: Steel, Dragon and Ghost. Then Platinum came along, with its rather iffy type distribution, and put an end to that.

Only tradition I've kept is at least one Water-type, but I mightn't bother with that for Y (or X or whatever).

I always form an Eeveelution team if possible: Umbreon, Flareon, Jolteon, Vaporeon, and Espeon (so Dark, Fire, Electric, Water, and Psychic). As of Gen VI, I will add Sylveon (Fairy) to the roster.

For me, I usually will look and compare the Pokemon in terms of stats, moves, and design before deciding, most of the time... (Made that mistake while using Serperior).

My party will typically have a fire type, water type, electric or grass type or both, sometimes a ground type, and a dragon type/pseudo legendary.

For the last spot or two, depending on how my party is set up, I will usually try to fill it with types that I haven't used.

But if the two Pokemon share a similar dual type, it doesn't make much of a difference.

Sometimes I have even used previous generation and post E4 Pokemon since the selection wasn't that great early on.

I almost always get the Grass type starter and pick Pokemon I like from there, while trying to get a Pokemon for every matchup or situation.

Starter, bug, bird, and then I just fill in the rest with other types I need like grass, ground, water, etc.

Other than usually trying to have a Pokémon with Surf, anything goes for me. Whichever pokemon strike my fancy, types not a factor other than the fact that I usually try to not repeat the same type on my team unless I really like both pokemon.
