    The game allows up to three figures amongst your team of six when playing, however do any of you think that is really necessary for playing? I am surprised the rules didn't say each Pokemon must be different, but then I suppose that would slow down sales wouldn't it amongst hardcore players like me who has to have 4 of every card to build a deck with.

    Personally, I think it's bad to play more than 1 of a specific Pokemon, because it severely cuts versatility.
    There are plenty of different Pokemon, each with their own unique strengths and weaknesses. It's good to have a team that can adapt to any situation.

    The one time I can think of maybe wanting more than one of a Pokemon on your team is if you're building a blitz team and you think one specific Pokemon is more powerful than the others with 3 MP.

    Well my team is always changing depending on who I am facing and in soem games I use two EEVEE.
    It kinda upsets who I am playing because thye have to watch two of my fav Pokemon and EEVEE is a key player in my team since about 80% of my battles are won with EEVEE and if it ever get KO'ed them I have another in my bench to take its place.

    The rule-of-3 makes it interesting. Personally, I'd be wary of putting too many duplicates in. You might really like Machop's huge 40 range, but if the other Pokemon can get 50 (or Purple) reliably, Machop will be difficult to use effectively. 1? Fine. 2? Still okay. 3? Half your team now has that vulnerability. It just gets worse from there.

    I also don't think there would be a lot of problems on this since it would just mean your weakness would also triple. You will need big hitters and fast movers to create some strategy.
