Nobody has YY genotype.

Hermaphrodites and pseudohermaphrodites can be either XX or XY genotype. The hermaphroditism is a defect in differentiation of the gonads and/or genitalia during development. In very rare cases, hermaphroditism can occur in mosaicism (a mixture of cells with XX and XY genotype in the same individual).
