    Default Does anyone focus on one type only?

    I was wondering if anyone did. Just curious. I love water pokemon, and I've tried to dominate battles with just using primarily them. I've won some and lost some. For example, all level 100s(Dewgong, Walrein, Swampert, Slowbro, Kingdra) My Empoleon is on level 80 and I've had it for 2 years. Crazy huh. I mean I also have other types, but I just love others.

    I like to have different types in the teams I build and in my ingame teams.

    I do monotype challenges sometimes. My favourite type is water (only one where I've done a monotype on all four gens) although fighting and psychic come in at second and third.

    I usually use a variety of types, unless I'm doing a monotype challenge. But psychic pokemon are sweet.

    Fire is considered to be the weakest type out there because of its Earthquake, Surf & Stealth Rock weakness. Nevertheless, I love fire type Pokemon. I love everything about them, their underdog image, their designs, their attacks...

    Even though I do not train fire type Pokemon ONLY, I would say I specialize in the Type. My goal is to own a decent IVed, EV trained version of every existing fully evolved fire type (I already did this with Infernape, Arcanine and Houndoom). I am not in a rush tho, as I enjoy raising other Pokemon as well. I also have my fire Pokemon in mind when I'm raising other Pokemon. Having thoughts about how they could support my fire types, what fire weaknesses they could cover and so on.

    You see, I'm a fire enthusiast who also enjoys other Pokemon types & especilly Pokemon breeding.

    Hmm i guess i would specialize in water or grass type pokemon. I do use others but they are always my main focus. It may be partly because i have not liked the fire type starter since the Johto days.

    Bug types are my favorite. I am planing on making an all bug team once I am done with the elite 4.

    Water Types, I adore them. But I also have an Ice, fire & Grass team in the making.

    I like Fire Types but focusing ONLY on one type is pretty sad, so many disadvantages when it comes to gyms and all that.

    I have made a team of just water pokemon on gold before. I switched out my togetic and meganium with some of the water pokemon sometimes. Since then I never had did that again. I was thinking about it on Diamond. Of course a water team. I might want to try a psychic aor dark team...my other favorite types.

    I really like water and ice type pokemon, and I actually considered making each pokemon on my competitive team have that type. Claydol and Breloom are the only ones without either of the types, so maybe I'll switch them for some other pokemon. Imagine a competitive team that all shared a type. COOL BEANS ROAR!!!!

    My favorite types are Water, Dark, Bug and Poison but for some reason I have about eight Water Types. Six of them are almost unique dual types too. Don't ask me how but it just happened.

    My favorite type is rock. Being somehow underestimated due to the many x4 weaknesses they catch some neatweaknesses on flying Pokes like Dragonite or the brids..too sad that in old times Rock slide was the only powerful move..but now rock Pokemon are more powerful than before..I don't really care of some weaknesses since especially rock is often combined to overcome this weakness..Maybe I should try to train a gym leader team..

    My favorite types are Dark and Dragon. Fire is nice too, but I like the first two more. I don't focus on one type. I always try to build a balanced team.

    I usually keep a fairly even team just so that nothing can suprise me. But most of my pokemon either have a ground or fighting move just because of coverage. But I'm a huge fan of grass pokemon (most dragons are cool too).

    I don´t like to have a team of only one type, I think it is better to keep everything in balance.

    I don't generally focus on just one type, but alot of my teams seem to have more than one Pokemon that's flying type in it.
