    I've been planning a mono Fighting type team I may try out, but I cannot decide on the last member.

    Infernape
    Machamp
    Poliwrath
    Gallade
    Lucario
    Toxicroak/Breloom

    Any ideas?

    Breloom would be good since its attack is high but it will be a pain to train from Shroomish,Toxicroak can be alright.

    Toxicroak seems like a pain to catch, with Croagunk being in the dreaded Safari Zone/Great Marsh. Though, I'm not sure if you can catch Shroomish right off the bat, before the National Pokedex/Elite 4. I'd say Breloom.

    Hello All! I managed to finally complete my Monotype Bug Challenge! I must say, this was harder than any Scramble or Monotype Challenge I've ever taken! It took probably ten or eleven tries before I was able to beat the Elite Four!
    Haha, and you'll see who my star team member was when I give the team layout...

    - Maestrik - Level 55 - Item: SilverPowder
    Nature: Naive
    Moveset: Rock Smash, Return, Night Slash, X-Scissor

    - Zaptress - Level 55 - Item: Magnet
    Nature: Jolly
    Moveset: Bug Buzz, Thunderbolt, SolarBeam, Wish

    - Goibija - Level 57 - Item: Big Root
    Nature: Modest
    Moveset: Giga Drain, Gust, Shadow Ball, Bug Buzz

    - Equator - Level 57 - Item: Razor Claw
    Nature: Quirky
    Moveset: Rock Tomb, Bug Bite, Psychic, Earthquake

    - Swiffer - Level 58 - Item: Razor Fang
    Nature: Naughty
    Moveset: Signal Beam, Psychic, Sleep Powder, Sludge Bomb

    - Arkaire - Level 68 - Item: Iron Plate
    Nature: Adamant
    Moveset: Metal Claw, Rock Slide, Cut, Aerial Ace

    So yeah, Armaldo was about 10 levels higher than everybody else after the E4 and Victory Road was all said and done, lol! Just goes to show who's useful (or who isn't).
    Anyway, here's a bit of a team analysis for anyone interested.

    Most Useful Team Member - Armaldo
    Second Most Useful Team Member - Venemoth
    Least Useful Team Member - Kricketune
    Most Versatile Team Member - Illumise
    Most Underrated Team Member - Beautifly
    Either Incredibly Useful, or Incredibly Useless - Wormadam (Sand Cloak)

    And this marks the beginning of my Monotype Flying Challenge! I will post once I decide to start. Happy New Year!

    ah wus bored, and Pearl is starting to become a dead weight, so I'm starting a Poison monotype challenge.

    Anyways, standard procedure, listen to old man ramble, name Rival embarassing name, blah blah blah. I picked a Turtwig, since that seemed like the best choice for beating the first route.

    Skipping ahead, I caught a few Budews and Zubats, and picked the ones with the best natures (both neutral). I beat the crap out of the wildife for a bit, before trying to beat some trainers and losing to a Starly somehow, getting their levels to 10 and 8.

    Beating my rival was suprisingly easy. All I did was confuse them with Zubat, paralyze them with Budew, and then Hidden Power them to death. And that was it.


    Team so far:

    (Purple) Lvl 8
    Leech Life
    Supersonic

    (Murphy) Lvl 10
    Absorb
    Growth
    Hidden Power
    Stun Spore

    EDIT: Great, I think this thread is dead... Anyway, here's an update.

    The route before Orebrough City was tough, mostly due to Zubat being a failure, so I switched to Budew. From then on it was easy. I swept through the mine, and most of the gym, but I did have a little trouble with Cranidos, who didn't go down in one hit from Mega Drain.

    I caught a Geodude, and taught Rock Smash to it, then beat the crap out of Team Galactic in a tag battle, and Zubat finally learnt Bite, which actually made it quite good. I beat more crap out of more Galactics, and Stun Spore made quick work of Purugly.

    In Eterna Forest I picked up a Cascoon, who to be honest was a bit useless. Even when I evolved him he still couldn't do much, but the other team members made up for that. After hours of switching out Dustox, I made it to the other side, where Zubat tore Gardenia to pieces with Wing Attack. Unluckily, I wasn't so lucky with Jupiter, I had to battle twice because of some bad luck.

    Finally I traded over Geodude for a Stunky, making the 4th member of my team. And that is that.

    (Purple) Lvl 21
    Leech Life
    Confuse Ray
    Wing Attack
    Bite
    Usefulness: 8.1/10
    Poisony-ness: 15&#37;

    (Murphy) Lvl 20
    Mega Drain
    Growth
    Hidden Power
    Stun Spore
    Usefullness: 5.9/10
    Poisony-ness: 15%

    (Zmobie) Lvl 19
    Gust
    Harden
    Protect
    Usefulness: 2.5/10
    Poisony-ness: 20%

    (Oscus) Lvl 16
    Focus Energy
    Posion Gas
    Screech
    Fury Swipes
    Usefulness: 2/10
    Poisony-ness: 40%

    I have almost completed a Ground- monotype challenge but forgot to post it here so there's no point starting now. But, I will soon start a Psychic type challenge with Pokemon pre-chosen with a Random Number Generator.

    So my future team:

    Alakazam
    Slowbro
    Starmie
    Gardevoir
    Grumpig
    Bronzong


    First post of Team Psychic will come after I finish my Ground challenge and make significant progress on the new Psychic team.

    Wow, turns out I've done quite a lot since last time...

    I tried training up Zmobie and Ocsus on the route west of Eterna City, but soon gave up. I got the bike from the bike guy, and beat the cycling road with a bit of difficulty (my team has no way to beat electric types). Also, I managed to evolve Purple somewhere along the way.

    Skipping ahead, I beat my rival in Hearthome City (who hasn't evolved his Starly, for some reason) pretty much entirely with Golbat, who was starting to get over-leveled. So I tried using Zmobie on the route to Solaceon, and finally got him to learn a decent move! (Psybeam). From then on it was beating the Lost Tower while switching between my weakest team members.

    For the route that lead to Veillstone, I pretty much used Golbat all the way, since none of my other pokemon could beat the things there. The gym was much easier then I expected, because none of teh fighting types could do more then 5 damage at a time to Dustox, and moonlight meant they could never KO me. The only thing that caused any trouble was Lucario.

    The Pastoria Gym was also suprisingly easy, only one of my pokemon fainted and that was Golbat. Afterwards I tried looking for a Croagunk, but gave up and traded one over. And finally, I managed to evolve Murphy! But he still has a pretty bad movepool.

    Anyway, my team:


    (Purple) Lvl 31
    Leech Life
    Confuse Ray
    Wing Attack
    Bite
    Usefulness: 9/10
    Poisony-ness: 15&#37;

    (Murphy) Lvl 31
    Mega Drain
    Growth
    Hidden Power
    Stun Spore
    Usefullness: 7/10
    Poisony-ness: 15%

    (Zmobie) Lvl 28
    Gust
    Psybeam
    Protect
    Moonlight
    Usefulness: 4/10
    Poisony-ness: 20%

    (Oscus) Lvl 29
    Focus Energy
    Toxic
    Screech
    Slash
    Usefulness: 5/10
    Poisony-ness: 43%

    (Gunther) Lvl 24
    Pursuit
    Faint Attack
    Revenge
    Swagger
    Usefulness: ?/10
    Poisony-ness: 20%

    I will start a Dragon monotype team,
    Its obvious I need to trade
    Ending Team

    Dragonite-Flamethrower, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, Draco Meteor

    Salamence- Fire Blast, Dragon Claw, Aerial Ace, Crunch

    Flygon- Earthquake, Dragon Claw, Faint Attack, Fire Punch

    Kingdra- Hydro Pump, Dragon Pulse, Agility, Icy Wind

    Altaria- Safeguard, Dragon Pulse, Perish Song, Sky Attack

    Garchomp- Dragon Claw, Dig, Fire Fang, Crunch

    Notes: I have to use Garchomp as there arent any other Dragon pokemon
    I have to have Dig on Garchomp as 1. It makes it tad bit harder 2. I use my Earthquake TM on Flygon
    I will interchange a pokemon with a HM Slave between routes that need HMs, I will replace Interchange between Garchomp, then I would VS Seeker the missed exp. with it.

    Challenges: The pre evos are remarkably weak so until I can I have to do with them
    The fact I might get bored of this, it is rare because I like challenges.

    Well, it's been nearly a week, but I've finally made some progress on my Pearl Psychic type team. Most of the time was spent training my Pokemon, which was a real pain since Ralts and Spoink only knew Growl and Splash respectavely.

    So I started the new game, gave my Rival a generic name and started off on my Pokemon journey! I chose Turtwig as my starter because, though I won't be using it, it'll make my life easier vis-a-vis my rival. After transferring the eggs, I trained on Route 201 until all my Pokemon were on level 5, which was not easy with an entire team of level 1 Pokemon (Abra and Bronzor were majorly helpful here). Eventually I made it to Jubilife City, where I got the Town Map and the Pok&#233;tch. I proceeded to Oreburgh City, beating my rival in the process. Currently, I am in the Oreburgh Mine, about to talk to Roark so he'll return to the gym. Obviously with my Pokemon's levels, I'll train them up some more before challenging the Gym (Cosmic's time to shine (pun unintended)).

    Team Psychic as of now:

    Einstein /Abra
    Level 8
    -Teleport
    -Psychic
    -Hidden Power Bug (yeah, I know > )
    -Calm Mind
    (Note Bred with a male Alakazam with latter 3 moves)

    Daphne /Slowpoke
    Level 7
    -Curse
    -Yawn
    -Tackle
    -Growl

    Cosmic /Staryu
    Level 7
    -Tackle
    -Harden
    -Gyro Ball (Parent had this move)
    -Water Gun

    Charity /Ralts
    Level 7
    -Growl
    -Confusion

    Miss Piggy /Spoink
    Level 8
    -Splash
    -Psywave

    Clink /Bronzor
    Level 7
    -Tackle
    -Confusion
    -Hypnosis


    I will edit this post as soon as I defeat Roark!

    Awesome I finally found this, well, after I trade over all my current Diamond pokemon and get back to having a pokedex after restarting the game, I think I'm going to do a Mono-Steel Type Challange as Jirachi is currently being given out by Gamestop in USA. Since Jirachi isn't on the Uber list, I think this is gonna be fun!

    I just don't know what other Steel Types I'm gonna have, any suggestions? I kinda want Mawile, but I've been raising one of those in Ruby, so I dunno, maybe I'll do it just to play with it in PBR too!

    Edit-Update:
    Okay, so I've started my challange and have gotten this far.
    Amelia (Piplup) - Relaxed (Starter)
    Lvl: 14
    Moves: Pound, Growl, Bubble, Water Spourt
    Ability: Torrent
    Yes, I know, not Steel, but it becomes one, so why not use it.

    Jirachi - Mild
    Lvl: 5
    Moves: Wish, Confusion, Rest, Draco Meteor
    Ability: Serene Grace
    The newest (and US Gamestop Event) this is what started me wanting to do the Steel Challange

    Bridget (Mawile) - Quirky
    Lvl: 14
    Moves: Astonish, Fake Tears, Rock Smash, Bite
    Ability: Hyper Cutter
    It knows dark moves... (Ghost Gym Leaders are my weakness) and it is just fun.

    Hermia (Skarmory) - Hardy
    Lvl: 10
    Moves: Leer, Peck, Sand-Attack
    Ability: Keen Eye
    Still working to get good moves on this one.

    Laramie (Burmy) - Relaxed
    Lvl: 9
    Moves: Protect
    Ability: Shed Skin
    Yeah... This one is going to Wormadam (Trash)... slowly getting there.

    I'm also working on getting Aron (Adamant/Naughty) and Onix-Steelix (Adamant/Naughty). I know this team has a ways to go, but I've beaten Roark and just trying to get an Onix before I move on. Any suggestions for moves or things I should try and get TMs for or just Teach them ingeneral? I'm open to suggestions.

    Oh! I'm also looking for item suggestions as I think I'm giving the Quick Claw to Aggron. My only request is I want the items to be get able in the game as I go (I'm playing Diamond) and don't really want to use the "Choice" items I don't know why, but after looking at tiers and such, I just don't like how "Choice" items are always used.
