    My personal favourite for a mono is the flying type. Always seems to be plenty of those. It really depends if you can trade or not, or even want to, and if you want to be able to use surf and fly on an in-game team.

    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.

    Well, that's pretty much. And, it can have a second type. But, it needs at least 2 flying type moves.
    How about Braviary named Wargle?

    I just did a Grass monotype and it went well on White. Flying, Psychic, or Fighting would also work on the 5th gen games.

    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.

    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-

    Acrobatics
    Volt Change
    Thunderbolt
    U-turn/Light Screen (your pick- also depends if you're playing post game as well)

    Swanna, eh?

    Surf
    Featherdance
    Air Slash/Brave Bird
    Tailwind

    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)

    Those are all good suggestions. I'm pretty much open to anything besides grass, flying and poison, the 3 types I have done. My friend suggested dark, and I also like your suggestions of ground, and ghost. I'm not sure I'd have the patience for dragon, although having a lucky egg does help. Hmm.. still have a lot to think about I suppose. I'm leaning towards something that has really only become prominent in recent gens, ala the steel/dark/ghost types, but ground is enticing... :s

    pokemonbw01, a moveset would be

    Fly
    Hone Claws
    Superpower
    Crush Claw

    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.

    !MonoGrass Challenge!

    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.

    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?

    Steel
    Empoleon
    Skarmory
    Magnezone
    Bisharp
    Lucario
    Excadrill

    Ghost
    Gengar
    Drifblim
    Froslass
    Jellicent
    Chandelure
    Golurk

    Dark
    Houndoom
    Honchkrow
    Crawdaunt
    Krookodile
    Scrafty
    Weavile

    Fire
    Charizard
    Magcargo
    Houndoom
    Blaziken
    Camerupt
    Chandelure

    Psychic
    Starmie
    Jynx
    Exeggutor
    Gallade
    Sigilyph
    Claydol

    Ground
    Swampert
    Mamoswine
    Excadrill
    Gliscor
    Golurk
    Torterra

    Rock
    Carracosta
    Archeops
    Cradilly
    Crustle
    Lunatone
    Magcargo

    Ice
    Cloyster
    Jynx
    Mamoswine
    Abomasnow
    Froslass
    Weavile

    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.

    There aren't any rules against it. You wouldn't be the first person to do an Elite Four challenge.

    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.

    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.

    Both Sound Fun. I'll construct a team for each, Post them, and then decide from there.
