Why Kibana and monitor idexes 2 shards by default

Hello, I have a new server to try elasticsearch 6 and there's something that's giving me a lot of headache, why by default are the kibana, logstash, monitor indexes created with 2 shards?

Right now my 1 node cluster shows this:


Since this will be a 1 node elasticsearch cluster, how do I change it so those indexes and new ones created by the monitoring part of x-pack are only one shard?

Is there any default for indexes that do not configure how many shards there should be to only be 1 shard?

To update, all new indexes that are created have 1 assigned and 1 unassigned shard.
