Because you need at least 1 X chromosome for the cell to be functional. In theory, you could have two sperms with Y fuse to give you YY, but the cell they form will not survive. and YYY is just not possible because for a partial mole, you need an egg with a nucleus, and by definition an egg will always have a X chromosome so the only combinations possible are XYY or XXY or XXX, but not YYY
