    Default Do you use monotypes?

    Do any of you use Monotypes of maybe , your favorite Pokemon type? For those of you who don't know what a monotype is, it is when you only use a specific type of Pokemon in a game, such as Bug. So, do you, and if so, what type?

    No, I have been always used a balanced type team. The only type I would try a monotype team would be water type due their high variety of double types combo and Pokemons.

    I do! I use normal types! Normal happens to be my favorite type, so I enjoy it a lot, but it can be a bit challenging at times.

    Nope, but I would like to try it one day, probably starting with electric, my favorite type.

    I put together a mono-Fire after I beat the Pearl champion to do the aftergame stuff with. Was pretty cool, until I need to Surf somewhere.

    Tried a grass-type monotype in Black. I had to rely on a Ferrothorn for pretty much everything, so I was screwed when we met that Fire Blast spamming Chandelure in the Elite 4 and whenever we ran into a Darmanitan. Aah... I'm not going through that again.

    I used to use a water mono-type, but, after gen 5 I started using a bug mono-type. Gen 5 has some great bug pokes.

    Yes, I've completed seven monotypes in Platinum, and am currently on my eighth (Flying). It's been a neat experience going through the game with only one type. You really become more aware of the strengths and weaknesses of each one, and I've liked coming up with different strategies to overcome those weaknesses I encounter along the way, not to mention that I've had an opportunity to use Pokemon I'd never even considered putting on my team before. I think my favorites so far have been Water and Grass - it's fun kicking butt with Bibarel and Plant Cloak Wormadam. :P

    No, but since BW2 is giving out medals for it, I'm definitely going to raise at least one monotype team (although I've already beaten the game, so it's just going to be for the Elite 4).

    Well I prefer to have a balanced team, but having a monotype team will be interesting since I never had one

    Glad to see all the people who use monotypes!
    And for those of you who don't, try it!
    It can be very fun and unique!

    I usually train teams with various types, but there have been a few games where I've monotyped the Dark Type. I just like them I guess... xD Umbreon, Absol and Houndoom are just awesome...

    Yeah... xD

    I don't. I tried it once, and I didn't like it. I rather have a variety of types. It's just kinda boring using only one type.

    I did a Flying team once. It wasn't too bad.

    I did it once with Electric types on White, though I had to trade stuff, but it was good.

    It was
    - Rotom-C
    - Raichu
    - Eelektross
    - Magnezone
    - Galvantula
    - Jolteon

    Overall, it was a good game.

    Thank you based Turpoo

    are we talking about monotype teams or monotype pokemon? I've never had a monotype team, and actually, I usually never us monotype pokemon either - I like to cover as many types as I possibly can - however, I recently quickplayed through SS and ended up using a Feraligatr, a Magmortar and an Alakazam.

    Team wise, it's not really my thing but I wouldn't mind trying a Dragon-type team one day....would have to buy another cartridge or download a rom or something though because I don't think I'd have it as my main team for a specific Gen. :/

    I have never done a monotype team but I keep considering it. If I were to do it i see myself using water or normal for the variety of moves they can learn. If I were to do normal though I'd only allow one normal/flying or even none at all.

    Thinking about Alpha Sapphire:

    Trainers from Bulbapedia (Kris from Spriters Resource),
    Gen I-IV Pokemon from The Spriters Resource, Gen 5 Pokemon from
    cSandoval on DeviantArt, Serena from tebited15 on Deviant Art,
    Gen III Pokemon from Bulbapedia

    No, at least not in-game. However, I sometimes use monotype teams for fun in the Battle Frontier/World Tournament/Battle Subway for fun. But even then, I mostly use Latias, Garchomp and Milotic, those three pretty much always do an awesome job for me.
