Default What are the characteristics of a perfect team?

This question is a bit self explanatory, but what are the common characteristics do pros stick to in a pokemon team? Considering there really is no such thing as the "perfect team", so to speak.

There is debatably only one charactoristic that all teams share: Coherence. Since there are so many different kinds of team (Balanced, sweep, stall, weather, BP and so on), there are very few elements that all teams have in common. However all good teams are (Or at least should be) comprised of pokemon that contribute in different ways and complement each other well, covering other member's weaknesses or setting up something specific like screens or entry hazards.

They should have a wide type coverage and each should do a different job. No 2 pokemon should do the same thing

You should have pokémon that cover each other's weaknesses.

For exmaple, a Metagross and Salamence combination is a classic exmaple.

Salamence is weak to Ice, Rock, and Dragon.
Metagross resists all three of these.

Metagross is weak to Fire and Ground
Salamence resists Fire and is immune to Ground (unless it roosts).

That way, these two pokes can generally safely switch among each other.
