Do you have an "open spot" in your team you use for any Pokemon?

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 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?

I also think 6 Pokemon is way too limited.

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.
Love me long time.

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. =(

I usually have 4 or even 3 fighters and 2 or 3 HM slaves (for things like flash or dig).

I don't need a whole lot of soldiers to get through the game smoothly, and worry about expanding during the postgame.

I have one slot I'm still not sure about. If this gen has less HM use then I can certainly narrow down my options.

And Freya definitely needs more recognition. My favorite character and she stops talking half way through the game. =/

I did in BW because I could only find 5 Pokemon I actually wanted to use and were readily available through most of the game

I always hated giving Cut to a Pokemon who i know i will use often
Maybe you should worry less about the tides, who've already made up their mind about killing you, and worry more about me, who's still mulling it over -Azula-

I always run four main Pokemon and two filler spots for field moves or anything else (like if a certain NPC wants to see a certain Pokemon, or the lady that gives you the Heart Scales in BW2).

****ing right, man. Freya is the best.

I'm not alone after all...

On topic: I don't necessarily have an "open spot". It's more like "most likely to be replaced if needed".
Everything I have ever learned about life can be summed up in three words: It goes on.
