What is a Monotype Challenge?
A Monotype challenge is one in which you can only use Pokemon of a specific type to beat the game from start to finish (ie beating the champion and seeing the credits or with HGSS, beating Red). For instance if you say try a Grass Monotype Challenge, you can only use Grass Type Pokemon found in the game.
- Please read the Challenge Forum rules before posting.
- Pokemon are allowed to have two typings. For instance, Butterfree would be acceptable on both a flying team and a bug team.
- Legendaries and traded Pokemon (not counting in-game trades or trades for evolution purposes only) are not allowed.
- Note some types (like Dragon types typically) are not viable to use for such a challenge due to a lack of availability of them early in the game, or at all.
- 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.
- You may have Pokemon of another type in your team, but only as HM slaves - they may not be used in battles.
- 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.
- If you wise to impose any other restrictions on yourself feel free to do so and mention them!
