Thread: D/P monotype challenge v2.0

  1. #1

    Default D/P/PT monotype challenge v2.0

    Welcome all to the D/P/PT Monotype Challenge V.2.0. there was one 4th gen but that one died and i know a lot of people liked it

    The aim of the monotype challenge is for you to try and complete the game using only one type. More detail is provided in the rules.

    Rules

    1. The pokemon may be double-typed, e.g. Butterfree would be acceptable on both a flying team and a bug team.

    2. All the pokemon must be based around one type. Here's an example of a ground type team:

    geodude
    onix
    torterra
    gastrodon
    quagsire
    HM slave (or insert pokemon you want here)

    3. No ubers. This was changed from legends because it just makes a bit more sense. A list of ubers can be found here
    http://www.smogon.com/dp/tiers/uber


    4. Your challenge ends, either when you arrive in the battle area, or when you defeat/capture heatran, although you are allowed to go further.

    5. You may not have two of the same pokemon or two in the same evolution line (e.g buizel+floatzel)

    6. If you pick a starter that is not of your type, then it may not be used after you have obtained one pokemon of your chosen type.

    7. The pokemon may learn moves through TMs, but you are not allowed to use two of the same TM (e.g. teaching two pokemon solarbeam) or use a HM twice.

    8. You may have pokemon of another type in your team, but only as HM slaves, NOT to be used in battle.

    9. Post only on this thread to either state which type you are doing, your current progress or to ask for suggestions on which pokemon to use.

    10. Have fun!!!


    Please PM me any suggestions on how I could improve.

    I shall be partisipating in a ground monotype.

    Thanks


    P.S i want to thanks holy lucario for the awesome idea and i wanted to continue it.

    Alright well in honor of Lance I wanted to do a Dragon style team, not specifically of the Dragon type. I was thinking of this;

    Charizard
    Gyarados
    Dragonite
    Kingdra
    Flygon
    Garchomp

    I know the rules say no UBERs but I don't care.

    I will update when my challenge begins, and I will be trading eggs to have my full team by Roark. Again, I don't care, it doesn't make the game easier, I need to trade anyway as 4/6 aren't in Diamond.

    First things first, sorry for the double post, and I know the last post was months ago, but I wanna keep this thread alive.

    My last Dragon style monotype ended quickly as I wasn't enjoying how slow Diamond was compared to Platinum, so I sold my Diamond and Pearl for a new Platinum, and decided to try a new Ground Monotype.

    My final team will be;



    I started, named myself Jimmy and my Rival Andrew, and chose Chimchar so my Rival would end with an Empoleon, for a challenge. Did the stuff with my Andrew at the Lake, beat him pretty easily after I got Chimchar, and caught a few random pokemon to trade for eggs. Hatched all the eggs, and currently training them on Route 201;

    Onix lvl 10
    Mudkip lvl 10
    Rhyhorn lvl 10
    Gible lvl 10
    Swinub lvl 10
    Hippopotas lvl 10

    Sounds like fun. I suppose I'll do a fire mono challange. Are we allowed to send over our pokemon team from our other game, as eggs and such?

    Go ahead, that's what I do. I'm weird like that, as I always breed for males with the right nature and ability, and I enjoy breeding for egg moves too. The rules say you can't, but you aren't forced to follow the rules.

    hmm, well since technically the rules say I shouldn't, I won't. It'll be more of a challenge that way anyway. I'll get started.

    EDIT: after reviewing the pokedex, I realized the only fire types available before the Elite 4 are Chimchar and ponyta, so maybe I will send over a few pokemon.

    Well I finally finished training my team to lvl 10 on Route 201. Everyone is doing nicely, although Onix is a little weak offensively compared to everyone else. Went through Jubilife City, got the Poketch, beat the trainers at the school, gave Andrew the Town Map and healed. Went north, beat those trainers, and went towards Orebourgh. Challenged my Rival, and Onix soloed him with Rock Slide. Beat all the trainers, got HM Rock Smash, and headed towards Orebourgh Mine. Found Roark, trained everyone to lvl 15, and hit the Gym. Easily crushed the trainers, and challenged Roark. Mudkip OHKOd Geodude with Waterfall, then Onix 2HKOd Onix with Iron Tail, and Swinub managed to hang on against Cranidos, 3HKOing with Rock Slide after Curse. Had to heal up a Potion, but I came out on top.

    Currently headed towards Floaroma Town, and Mudkip just evolved.

    lvl 15
    lvl 15
    lvl 15
    lvl 16
    lvl 15
    lvl 15

    On the way through Orebourgh Gate, I ran into a;

    !! This is my 4th random Platinum encounter in less than a month!!

    It has a Naughty nature, Somewhat Vain, Sturdy, and a lvl 5 male.

    I also made some headway with my Ground mono. I beat Gardenia after like the 4th try, as my Gible saved my ***. Trained on the Cycling Road, and got my team to lvl 25 and got the VS Seeker. Talked to Cyrus, and made it to Hearthome. Went to the Gym, beat all the trainers, and got to Fantina. I beat Fantina after a crit Bite from Hippopotas. I really love his Sandstorm, it saves my *** so much. It finished off her Haunter, and it also killed Prinplup. They're currently at lvl 26, about to head to Solaceon.

    Rocky lvl 26
    Jack lvl 26
    Fluffy lvl 26
    MuddyBuddy lvl 26
    Rampage lvl 26
    QuickSand lvl 26

    I'm gonna have to quit my challenge. The pokemon grew too slow, and I lost interest in the pokemon I was training.

    I am currently doing a grass monotype challenge. I actually started my challenge before I saw this thread

    Anyway... I just recently defeated Crasher Wake to recieve my 5th gym badge. My current team is:

    Torterra lv. 40
    Leafeon lv. 38
    Roselia lv. 38
    Tropius lv. 37
    Bibarel lv. 18

    Now that I have found this thread, I will certainly post all of my recent happenings.
    I <3 May.


    I do not do competitive battling and I really do not have any desire to. I also do not go out of my way seeking for shinies because I never really understood why they were so great anyways. All I truely enjoy pokemon contests, breeding, and in-game battling.

    I think grass pokemon are the greatest ever and I take great pride in the ones I have raised. I also think that Chikorita is the most adorable pokemon ever!


    If you would like to know me send me a message. I'm not shy(:

    I now feel like doing a ground mono-type on Pearl to complement my Ruby challenge.

    Going to use Torterra, Swampert, Camerupt, Golem, and two out of Garchomp, Mamoswine, Steelix, Gliscor, and Hippowodon.
    <---Mah SS team, which is clearly superior to all of yours. Credit goes to Gladeshadow of the Dark Valley Request Shop.

    Put this in your sig if you agree that Zoroark and his prevo are super ugly. (Started by GolemGuy)

    Put this in your signature if you think Ruby and Sapphire deserve remakes (started by Flare 64!)

    Update: I went through all the beginning stuff, named my character Moon, obviously after my Screen Name, and chose a Piplup that I named Mimi to kick off my challenge. I beat the Starly, went through Sandgem Town, met Prof, Rown and his oh-so-annyoing assisstant, Lucas, a.k.a the Fedora Wearing Freak. Hehe...Anyway, I made it all the way to Floroma Town, along the way beating my rival, getting the Coal Badge, having Mimi evolve into a Prinplup, and trading over a Skarmory from my other Pearl version, named Kohai, which means an underclassman in Japanese honorifics. He's Level 10, so...he's probably gonna disobey me until I get my Forest Badge from the Eterna City Gym.

    Lv. 18 (Mimi)

    Moves:
    Pound
    Bubble
    Peck
    Metal Claw
