    I don't believe I've ever tried to do a monotype team, but as Bolt said, BW2 has a medal for it, so I may have to eventually. It sounds like an interesting challenge, but I prefer using a balanced team.

    I have a mono Flying type team in Black 2 and a mono Dragon in SoulSilver. Both were very interesting and enjoyable to use. I'm going to try a Grass monotype soon.

    I had almost a Fire team once in Sapphire. I guess Blaziken, Camerupt, Magcargo, Ninetales, and Torkoal, I think. Flygon was the sixth Pokémon though. Later I think Torkoal got switched to a Rhydon, but it knew a fire move as well. As well as Surf. B) It was more like an all fire-breathing team more than a monotype team per se. Everyone at every moment knew an attacking fire move.

    I've had some Water Teams before too. I like Water Pokémon! You can get pretty versatile teams going with only Water type, since there are so many secondary types.

    I am currently doing a monotype grass run on Black 2.

    Current team
    Ivysaur
    Ferroseed
    Breloom
    Servine

    Future additions
    Turtwig
    Snover

    Not bad so far. Fire types can be a ***** but Breloom is fast and knows drain punch so it helps. Ivysaurs poison powder/venoshock combo is nasty. We will see what happens when i reach the E4. After that I plan to do a monotype ground challenge.

    I love monotypes, but I have never completed any that I have started.
    Tonight, I wanna dance with someone else ~

    I never done any monotypes, nor do I plan to. The rare exception would be the Type Expert portion of PokeMon World Tournament in Black 2.

    It is actually very interesting to see how many people use monotypes, and what ones they use!
    And for those of you who never have, start quick! It is very much enjoyable!

    I've never done a monotype before, but I'm planning to do a Normal monotype in Diamond with this team: Bibarel, Ambipom, Togekiss, Lopunny, Porygon-Z, Girafarig.

    I agree, it really makes you look more closely at strategy, and learn the ins and outs of a types weakness.

    I do monotype challenges in game when I'm not doing Nuzlockes. Usually I also have an extra rule that I have to pick my six favorites from the type I'm using, so I end up with a lot of first and middle forms too.

    Also, I've been using a mono flying type team competitively in PO against non-monotype teams for a while now. Been very successful.

    I've been meaning to do one for a long time, either fire, flying or water. But instead I usually end up doing a Nuzlocke.

    I usually get a hold of a Flying-type team after a while. The only reason I don't keep one all the time is because Umbreon isn't Flying. :P

    If I want to try a "just for fun/for a challenge" type run that isn't Nuzlocke (the paranoia and extreme grinding can be annoying), then yeah, I'll attempt a Monotype Run. I've done Poison, Water, and Flying before, in Fire Red, Platinum, and Heart Gold, respectively.

    I have often thought about doing a mono-poison, grass or ground team, and I will probably do it in the future, but as of right now I haven't tried it.

    Grass is fun, hard, but fun. you have to really watch your move pool to take down fire types. Even 5 levels higher I still struggle with fire types

    Depends on the version, too. Hoenn versions might not be as bad for a Grass team, due to the likes of Ludicolo and Cradily.

    ALWAYS!

    In game, random wifi, PS, whenever I can. I like the thrill of a challenge (and being like a gym leader XP)

    I currently play Normal, but I have done Psychic, Electric, Steel, Dragon, Ghost and Dark quite well in the past.

    That is true, didnt Sinnoh have a lack of fire types? If so, that would work.

    Ferroseed was a great addition to the grass type, yes it has x4 weakness to fire besides that its only other weakness is fighting. The thing is a tank! it can take some hits

    I also added Breloom (drain punch FTW) and Ivysaur (poison powder/venoshock combo is deadly)

    I never had a team full of one type, but I was always fond of Jolteon, a monotype. I used in my playthrough of Black 2.

    If you mean specifically mono type pokemon individually, then sometimes, bur not too many. Ampharos probably being the one used the most.
