Ground is good, so is poison, grass and water. You can make flying/surf teams out of them. Normal and flying also. If you are just sticking to the 5th gen, than water or flying are nice, and electric and fire work, just without flyers.
My suggestion would be flying or water, although my poison on SS is really quite fun.
pokemonbw01 take an Emolga named Sparx
pokemonbw01 take... a Mandibuzz named Vultrix
Claims: Mario, The Big Bang Theory, Victini
Ok, here are my pokemons till now:
Swanna named Ugly
Braviary named Wargle
Emolga named Sparx
Mandibuzz named Vultrix
I would be happy if you do the movesets as well and when should it evolve.
Pokemon X and Y rules!!!
pokemonbw01 your Emolga must be caught in the shaking grass before you challenge Elesa- it must defeat at least one of Elesa's Emolgas.
For a moveset, how about-
U-turn/Light Screen (your pick- also depends if you're playing post game as well)
Air Slash/Brave Bird
Any suggestions for a team on black? I'll probably be trading over eggs. I want something a little obscure, but I like having fly and surf at my disposal for easier access. Any ideas?

@Charoshi: Ghost would be a interesting monotype- you can get Jellicent for Surf while Golurk can be your Flier
Rock is also another more obscure type that can be interesting- the Fossils can be the Surfer/Fliers and since you can trade, you can have access to Gigalith and his good stats.
The only other types with Unova pokemon that can Surf/Fly are:
- Normal (Stoutland/Audino/Bouffalant and any Normal/Flying- you can also use the Normal/Grass type which can be interesting)
- Ground (Golurk and Seismitoad/Stunfisk)
- Water (Swanna for Fly, although limited Water types in the region)
- Dragon (if you can wait for Hydreigon for Fly- not a lot of dragons in Unova as well)

pokemonbw01, a moveset would be
Since you do not get Rufflet until late in the game, there is not a restriction on evolution.
Ok, I have decided and bred my Monotype Grass, with members used in Drummerdude's team:
MonoGrass Planned Team:
Leavanny Leaf Blade/X-Scissor/Agility/Baton Pass
Serperior Coil/Leaf Blade/Aerial Ace/Dragon Tail
Sawsbuck Swords Dance/Horn Leech/Jump Kick/Return
Simisage Seed Bomb/Acrobatics/Rock Slide/Brick Break or Crunch
Amoongus Giga Drain/Sludge Bomb/Spore/Toxic
Ferrothorn Power Whip/Gyro Ball/Payback or Ingrain/Curse
And I have planned Monotypes for each type, but I'm gonna have to trade stuff over to do them all.
So, I picked out Snivy and beat both Cheren and Bianca, because I'm awesome. It leveled up thankfully. I did the introductory stuff before heading to Route 2. I had beaten N and beat every trainer on Route 2. I easily beat Bianca and arrived in the city without a problem. I got Panpour and beat the gym with them both.
I saved inside the gym near the door.
Spoiler:- Claims / Hunts!:
I have claimed Registeel!
Alright I've put a few teams together for some of the lesser used monotypes that I've seen. Any suggestions on which to use?
Any suggestions? I can always just do the ever so easy flying type, but I've done it before.
Edit: I've decided on steel. Wish me luck, and anyone who wants to test out one of these others teams can be my guest. I'm fairly fond of most of them, except ice really.

If there's any Pokemon you should use in a Fire Monotype Challenge, it's Drought Vulpix/Ninetales. Helps out huge, trust me. I'll never forget the time when my Vulpix (Yes Vulpix, not Ninetales) Confuse Haxed and Critical Haxed Drayden's Haxorus to death
Alright, the gig was started. After blazing through the first portion of the game, I contacted a few "sources" in another dimension, and she hooked me up with an army of 6 eggs.
I started my adventure. My name was Bryan. And I loved the steel type.
That's when it happened. Magnemite hatched. Than Piplup. Than Drilbur. Than Riolu and Pawniard. And finally, Skarmory hatched. I had my team. My steel type team.
After reaching them all into adequate levels (thanks to the ever so kind Audino,) including evolutions for Piplup and even Riolu, I decided I'd take on the normal specialist Lenora. Her Pokemon were no match for Magnemite and Lucario, and with that I had won my badge.
Suddently, Plasma struck. They stole the valuable dragon skull. I hurried off, alongside the gym leader, Burgh, into the dark Pinwheel forest. Who exactly knew what would await me there, but I knew my team and I were ready for it.
ok, im doing a fighting run of the game, mostly because it looks difficult with a flying gym leader and a psychic and ghost E4, but i love challenges
now, i started off with tepig, because hes a free fighting type when he evolves. I did a little EV training so he can help me beat the first gym, which i did, without the free monkey that you get later on :P
So, i cough a timbur and a sawk, as those to are the fighting pokemon that i like. I also plan to get a mienshao and a scarfty before i finish the game. I will update reguarly about my progress with snapshots whenever i can :P
I chase the dream, not the competition.
I'd like to do this but I already beat the game and I don't want to restart it, would I still be able to? I could just train my team to a certain level and try to beat the Elite Four/Alder with it.

*Please let me know if you add me so I can add you too!*
As for myself, I'e made no progress. I got tired of waiting for posts so I can post progress, and now I'm side tracked by Platinum. I'll get around to doing more work on my mono soon.
I'll do a Fighting-type Mono Run.
Don't know atm who my buddies will be, but I think Lucario will be in.
I'm gonna start right now, and I'll think about it.
Back in the Serebii.net Forums!
I'm Wondering What Mono-Type I should do next.
I've Done: Dragon
Fire/Fighting Dual Type run
I always use pokemon traded, so....Tell me what I should do next!

I can't seem to stay here, can I?
How about Rock? That seems like it would be a challenge.
Bug also seems interesting now with this gen offering stronger bugs.
It's time for a new Monotype challenge so instead of goofing off we might as well get started with this Dark type mono. This is on White version.
I started off with Tepig (Now neither Cheren or Bianca will have a Fighting type Pokemon) and beat both Bianca and Cheren. I did the rest of boring beginning stuff until I was on Route 1. I got some Pokeballs from Professor Juniper and then made my way to Accumula Town. After I did the Pokeball tutorial I made my way outside to find Team Plasma giving a speech. After that speech a man named N challenged me to a battle. I managed to defeat him and then I proceeded to Route 2 where my mom gave the Running Shoes. I ran around the grass until I found my first team member, a Purrloin. I captured it and trained it against wild Pokemon for awhile before battling the trainers on Route 2. I beat them all, including Bianca, and arrived in Striaton City where I took a break.
