Want to become a Pokémon Master, finish your Pokédex, and beat the game? What, you say you've been there, done that?! Well, what else is left for you to do?

How about this: Instead of playing with the same team over and over, how about you try to pump up the difficultly a notch. Try a Monotype Challenge! :D

Basically, you go through at least one of the games using a team completely consisting of one type. It can be quite the challenge, especially when facing a leader or elite who is resistant to your entire team! But that's what makes it more fun, right?

Single Game Monotype Rules
  • No hacking or cheating. This includes using the Missingno glitch in RBY.
  • You may not use Legendary Pokémon, even if they are of your type.
  • No trading Pokémon from other games, unless you are doing so for an evolution that requires it.
  • When starting your journey in each game, you will have to play the game using just your starter Pokémon. Then, once you gain access to the first available Pokémon of your type, continue from then on with only that type. You can use your starter to help with training these Pokémon, but cease using it in gym battles at this point. In the Kanto games, you also must catch the first Pokémon of your type before cutting the bush east of Cerulean City.
  • You can use HM slaves of different types; just don't use them in battles. The exception to this rule is with Psychic teams in the Hoenn games. Due to the fact that the Abra and Ralts families literally have no means of combating Poochyena and their fellow Dark-Types at the start of the game, the HM slaves can be used to help them out.
  • You may only use Pokémon that share a type. Dual Types are allowed, however. So, if you're doing a Flying monotype challenge, you may use the Water/Flying type Gyarados. If you are doing a Water monotype challenge, you may also use the Water/Flying type Gyarados. You can use Pokemon not of your type if and only if they will evolve into a Pokemon of your type at some point, though you should evolve them at the first chance you get. Also, if you are doing a Normal monotype challenge, you may not use an Eevee and evolve it into a Jolteon, because it is no longer the correct type.
  • You may use an emulator; just don't cheat on it.
  • Due to their rarity in earlier generations, three types are discouraged from being used: Ghost, Dragon, Ice. If you still want to use one of these types, you can ignore the third rule and trade one of said-type into your game at the earliest point that you can do so.
  • Due to their non-existance in the first generation, Dark- and Steel-Types are also discouraged from being used, and banned outright from RBY for obvious reasons. If you still want to use Dark-types types in GSC, FrLg, or HgSs, you can also ignore the third rule and trade one of said-type into your generation at the earliest point that you can do so.
  • If you cannot trade for whatever reason, and you're using one of the types mentioned in the last two points, hacking a single low-level Pokémon of your type into your game will be allowed. You would also be permitted to evolve Pokémon in this manner, if they require trading to do so. These are the only instances where hacking will be tolerated.
  • The challenge for each game is completed once the Elite Four is beaten for the first time(except in the second generation where it ends when you defeat Red, and in the fifth generation where it ends when you defeat the Elite Four for the second time). At said point, you can then begin with the following game.
  • It is never too late to sign up, you may always use the same type as someone else, and remember, HAVE FUN!!!

And for those of you feeling even more adventurous, how about trying for the Ultimate Monotype Challenge instead? So, instead of having a monotype challenge through one Pokémon game, this is meant to take place in all five regions, going through each generation of the franchise.

Requirements
  • A copy of Red, Blue, or Yellow. FireRed and LeafGreen will be accepted here, but for the ultimate experience, I suggest you go with the originals.
  • A copy of Gold, Silver, or Crystal. HeartGold and SoulSilver will be accepted here, but for the ultimate experience, I suggest you go with the originals.
  • A copy of Ruby, Sapphire, or Emerald.
  • A copy of Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum.
  • A copy of Black or White.
  • The will to play, and the desire to have fun. =D
  • Emulators will be allowed for any of the above, excluding the previous.

Ultimate Monotype Challenge Rules
  • All rules from the Single Challenges apply here.
  • Go in order. That is, RBY -> GSC -> RSE -> DPPt -> BW.
  • I didn't think I'd have to add this, but...Use the same Type in every Generation. Thanks.

You can post your progress here in this thread, being as detailed or as vague as you like. But please, when doing so, be sure to mention which challenge you're participating in. Things would get confusing otherwise, as we have two separate lists here. All participants in the Ultimate Monotype Challenge will be listed below in this post, and everyone participating in the single-game challenges will be listed in the following post.

Note that all champions of the Kanto-Johto-Hoenn-Sinnoh Challenges will be in brackets at the beginning of each list. Anyone in this position is free to start a 5th Gen game to become a Kanto-Johto-Hoenn-Sinnoh-Isshu Champion.

Hey guys! This is the post for single monotype challenges. It doesn't get updated much at all, because most everyone does Ultimates instead, but every once in a while I feel adventurous, so I update.

So you know how there aren't Dark or Steel types in FR/LG? other than magnemite Well, if you still want to do this challenge, feel free to! Below, I've compiled a list of the appropriate time to hack in Pokemon of each type.
Spoiler:

Dark:
Houndour, Poochyena, and Seedot may be obtained at the beginning of the game.
Carvanha, Cacnea, and Corphish may be obtained after your first badge.
Murkrow and Sneasel may be obtained after your third badge.
Umbreon, Sableye, and Absol may be obtained after your fifth badge.
Larvitar may be obtained after your seventh badge.

Steel:
Pineco and Aron may be obtained at the beginning of the game.
Beldum, Skarmory, and Mawile may be obtained after your third badge.
Magnemite, Onix, and Scyther must be obtained in the wild.

well EJ missed the post where i said i started a fire challenge because i finished my grass-run.
could you move me from the grass-type list to fire, please.

two things:

1. Does HGSS also end after the e4 or after Red like Gen 2

2. Could we integrate a variation of the egg rule from the HGSS monotype challenge somehow, so that rare Types could be used?

Okay, I just did my last update of the old thread, so we can now start things anew. I'd like to congratulate Fire Wolf for completing the Ghost UMC, becoming the last champion of the original challenge.

Additionally, I noticed some questions regarding when and if the fifth generation games will be added to the challenge here. I think myrrhman would agree in saying that we'll definitely want to include them. Someone mentioned using spoiler tags while the games are still unavailable in the West, and I think that's a good idea. More information will come in September.

Also, to clarify something from the old thread, which will be made official over here: hacking a low-level Pokémon into your game will be legal in the cases of the Ice, Dragon, and Ghost challenges, in addition to the 2nd Gen Dark challenge. I'll add it to the rules now.

Ah, didn't realize that.

My Psychic challenge didn't end up so well, so I want to restart it sometime. Probably in time for this thing to include the fifth gen as well.

So my next update in my Sapphire Grass Monotype challenge.

After i almost losed to Kyogre, his ice beam sweept almost my whole team.
I grinded under the sea my team to level 45
I walked in the gym and i falled trough the ice and must beat a trainer.
After i beated all the trainers with Tropius and Vileplume i puzzeld how to beat the puzzle.
After 10 minutes i finally get it and walked to Wallace and kicked his ass.
I healed and surft my way to Evergrande city!
I catched a Gyarados with my masterball and teached it Waterfall
I searched on some sites and saw i only need Strenght, Rock smash and Surf so my newest slave Lombre could do it.
But don't looked at some words, with Flash and waterfall it's simple.
So now i'm stuck in the pitch black darkness without Waterfall and Flash. Without an Escape rope...

And now finally my powerfull force:

Sceptile 'Blade'
lv 46, Softsand
- Slam
- Earthquake
- Leaf blade
- Aerial ace

Breloom 'Spore'
lv. 45, Amulet coin
- Mega drain
- Headbutt
- Sky uppercut
- Leech seed

Vileplume 'Flower'
lv. 45, Macho brace
- Absorb
- Posion powder
- Petal dance (deleted Sleep powder by accident)
- Sludge bomb

Tropius 'Bronto'
lv. 45, No item
- Fly
- Magical leaf
- Body slam
- Steel wing

Cacturne 'Needle'
lv. 45, Black glasses
- Cut
- Needle arm
- Faint attack
- Pin missle

I'm going to continue my Steel monotype challenge in Pearl, if you all don't mind. I've got two badges so far and I'm training up for a third as we speak. I'll update as soon as I can but I'm going to be on vacation soon so that may not happen for awhile. Still, I will do my best to update when I can. Thanks guys! =]

On that note, seeing as all the challenges are now in one thread, I suppose it would be proper format to always mention with tournament you're participating in(ie. one of the single-games or the ultimate).

I'll add something about that to the first post.

You know, I'm going to suggest that you change the name of the thread somehow. Instead of "Ultimate thread for monotype challenges" it could be interpreted as "Thread for ultimate monotype challenges", which is what confused me when I got the new link from the locked monotype challenge thread. May I suggest "Central Monotype Challenge Thread" or something to that effect instead? Just a heads-up.

That said, I will now provide a short update for my SS mono so that I may justify this post:

  • Did most of what I needed to do around getting a Beldum, which will be put off until later, and went to continue the plot.
  • Entered Mahogany Town and got scolded by not-Lance for being late. Psh, it's not like Team Rocket would do anything without me there to foil their plan anyway.
  • Fought a whole lot of Grunts while procrastinating on leveling Skarmory up to join the rest of the group in the 30-ish level range.
  • Steelix gained 555 experience points. Awesome.
  • Realized that dang, Steelix needs a better moveset. And better accuracy. Geez.

One question. Can I choose one of the games I want to challenge, or must I go through all the 4 regions in order?

You can do either/or. Just mention which one you're doing before you start.

I think I'lll start another challenge on my SoulSilver cartridge, this time using the Steel type!
Quick question: Does .EJ's egg rule still apply, or are there any different rules? If it does, I'll be trading over eggs for Piplup, Riolu, and Aron eggs to start off the game. If not, please tell me otherwise.

Copycat. >:C

Anyway, I just cleared the Mahogany Rocket Hideout and Pryce's gym on my copy of a Steel-mono-ing Soul Silver, and the plot has taken a break so that I can train multiple members of my team. Seriously, Skarmory is waaaay underlevelled. And I still need to evolve Prinplup. And Steelix needs a decent moveset. Yeeeah.

I got bored so i started anyways haha. Ok, so i started off normally and named myself Vin, blah blah blah. Chose Totodile named Bloo, and went on my merry way. To make a short story shorter, I finished the egg quest, and traded over Piplup, Aron, and Riolu eggs. Now I'm trying to hatch them.

The name was quite confusing, but meh.

Won't be able to continue with my HG/SS challenge until I can find an emulator and ROM. My DS is now shot and I'm holding out for a 3DS anytime soon.

I should get a Platinum update done by tomorrow though. Thank I use a ROM for THAT.

After defeating Lt. Surge, I headed back towards Cerulean city before going east to Rock Tunnel. Part way through the journey I ran out of inventory space and decided to use a Body Slam TM on Meowth, not much else happened. Trainers were battled, items were found, caves were navigated in the dark, Meowths were evolved, cut to Lavender town.

I healed up and then started west towards Celadon City, avoiding most of the trainers on the way. Once I arrived I headed to a restaurant where a man gave me a coin case. With that out of the way, it was time to head to the gym.

Leader Battle: Erika
Team:
Raticate Lv.28 Water Gun, Tail Whip, Dig, Hyper Fang
Pidgeotto Lv.28 Gust, Sand Attack, Quick Attack, Whirlwind
Persian Lv.28 Body Slam, Screech, Bite, Pay Day
Bellsprout Lv.10 Cutslave

Not much to say, Raticate swept her team with Hyper Fang.

After a rather dissappointing gym battle, I headed to the game corner, spent all my cash on coins (damn, only 2100...) and after another easy battle headed downstairs to defeat Team Rocket. Several grunts and movement tile puzzles later I was face to face with the leader of Team Rocket, Giovanni. Put simply, if you thought my battle with Erika was pathetic you are NOT going to like this. Raticate defeated Onix and Rhyhorn with Dig and Persian got lucky and defeated Kangaskhan in 2 hits with Body Slam.

Item Get! Silph Scope.

Next time! Pokemon Tower and Fuchsia City.

Again I apologize for being inactive, but I promise to keep up.

I have no problem reprising my role of the HGSS challenge host. I actually love this idea. This way one popular monotype(s) will draw people to attempt the less popular ones.

EDIT: ONE PIECE <3 props to alakazam17

Naturally, I'm going to have to hack my starter in each time, but according to the rules that's fine, so I'm actually going to start FR right now =)

So, I started my monotype challenge on HG today--Electric! Enjoy my first day! (It's pretty long...) :D

Started my game and isten to Prof. Oak babble. Then--yes! He asked me my name! Woah! I told him it was Sparky. He bought it. Then he hit me with his shrink ray and placed in my bed room. Such a bland rooom I have... So I went downstairs to see my Mommy. She gave me presnts! A bag, options, my ID, and the almighty ability to save. I have a cool mom Then she told Prof. Elm was looking for me. Creeper. I headed out the door and then GOT ATTACKED BY A MARILL! Get your off me! Then Crys came. Wait, what? You changed your name? Not cool, Crys. And stop dying your hair. I thought now would be a good time to do so, so I used my saving abilities. Some ability that is... all I did was take a nap on my door step. I tried to leave town but some lady stopped me. You're not my mother! Fine. I'll talk to this cool read head stalking Prof. Elm. All I did was say "Hi" and he kicked me! Son of a b***h. Well, time to visit my nextdoor pedophile! Prof. Elm talked some s**t too and then the phone wrang--no, that was his computer. He got an e-mail from Mr. Pokemon. Everyone uses big words here, "aquaintance?" He's your goddam friend, suck it up. Then he told me to pick a Pokemon. I knew this would only be a temporary one, but it still took a lot of thought. 3 seconds later I walked away with my Totodile. I went to talk to that ginger bully, 'cus now I had a tough blue crocodile to back me up. He still kicked me... Being run out of my own hometown I tried to leave, but Mom2 stopped me. Again. Lady, I am 10. I can take care of myself. I guess I have to visit my real Mom. Turns out it was a good idea--she gave me a PokeGear! And she taught me how to call someone. So sonsiderate you are Mom! Now the psycho lady who thinks I'm her son let me pass. But a couple steps out of town and Prof. Elm stops me! Now what? Your phone number? No! I don't give my number out to pedophiles. Guess I had no choice So I went west to Cherrygrove. I saw one wild Pokemon and killed it. Now in Cherrygrove some other old man wants to talk to me? And I have to follow him? Ever hear of stranger danger? Wow! He's a fast old f***er. So that's a Pokemon Center, that's a Poke Mart, that's Water, and now your showing me... your house? Are these games filled with rapists? Get your mind out of the gutter, Nintendo. And he gave me shoes. I will not be bribed for sex. I'm out of this town... but before I can leave, guess who needs to give me more stuff? Creepy-Old-Fast Man does! A map card? Why doesn't my damn PokeGear come with one? Sliph Co. seriously relies on child molesters to hand them out? Why not just give all the trianers iPhones? Then they can get any app whenever they want. Some more wild Pokemon laid to rest by my ferocious Totodile... and whats this house in the middle of the woods? Mr. Pokemon's, of course. Is he part of this pedophile league too? OMG! I'M SO SORRY! I didn't mean to walk in on you and Prof. Oak... um... yeah. It's ok though, you have an easter egg for me. No candy inside? Damn... Oh. and now you make me sleep? Did you watch me intently? Did you keep your pants on? I'm sure not... but now Oak has to chime in. You seriously don't recognize me? We met like... 15 minutes ago. And you give me a Pokedex? Is it Christmas? Everyone's giving me gifts... Well Oak left and I don't want to be alone with Mr. Pokemon so I left too. Prof. Elm's calling!?!? Stop it, creepers... I'm 10. What... it's an emergency? Oh no! That sounds serious. On m way back to the lab the meanie red head runs into me. You wanna fight? Oh... you do. Totodile totally owns his Chikorita. $500! Wow! I really could get an iPhone now! Yes, yes... you're great.. blah blah. Wait... how did I get your triner card? Ack! I'm sorry! I saw your name... oh no. Quick stop at the PC and it's off to New Bark Town! Gotta check on Prof. Elm and his "emergency." There's a cop! Who'd Elm rape now? Wait! I din't do anything! He's the sick-minded child molester! And I can't even talk to defend myslef. But Crys--I mean, "Lyra"--comes to rescue! Where's Marill? Anyways, she tells him it's really that red head a**hole. And the cop knows I battled him? Is he stalking me now too? Such a dirty place, Johto is. You want to know his name? He was some adopted kid cheaply named "Passerby Boy." So I get to name him? How about... Ampere. Ok, yes, good cop--go arrest him. That's all Elm, I don't want to play any of your dirty games. Let's go see mom! Save my money? Well... ok. Before I go I grab a quick snack in our little kitchen. A clean sink and a fridge full of water and lemonade. Never mind, I was hoping for some Pop-Tarts. Out west again and Brunette Crys wants to talk. Yes, jump around in the grass with your Maril. Glad your having fun. Wait... was I born 30 minutes ago? Everyone wants to teach me how to do everything... ooh, Pokeballs? Awesome! Merry Christmas to you too! Catch a random Hoothoot, and off to get my first electric pokemon to replace my starter.

I went to breed the perfect Pichu egg (one with a Pichu inside) on Diamond. I got that so that it had almost 10 steps left to hatch and saved right before the union room. There was my starter!

Traded Hoothoot for Jenna's egg and ran around a bit till it hatched into a beautiful... baby... girl! Congratulation's, it's a Pichu. Nice moveset too... hope that's not cheating. But I go on to train Volty (that's what I names her!). Found a level 4 Hoothoot, and even though she's level 1, she wiped the grass with Thunder! Few more Hoothoots and a Rattatta or 2 and she's ready to go. Sorry HM (as I named my Totodile earlier), it's time for Bill's PC for you. Where to next... Violet CIty, of course! On my way there. there were some weird little boys that tried to get my phone number. I'm sorry, but does Sparky come off that gay? Straight guys can wear V-neck hoodies and capris too. Finally in Violet City... Volty was kinda lonely, so I went south to Route 32 and caught Amph, the Mareep, for a companion. I was finally able to take on... the old guy at the top of the tower? That too... beat all those monks and their weeds. NOW I'm ready to beat the gym leader. The Jr. trainers were pretty easy, and Volty took out Falkner in a few short minutes. I got a badge! We just got a badge, we just got a badge, we just got a badge, wonder who it's from? Well Falkner isn't that bad 'cus he's like... 16. He had no intentions of raping me, so it's all good. Prof. Elm's calling agian? You wanna give me the egg back? Why didn't you just let me keep it? So I stop by the Mart to pick that up. Then some Kimono Girl comes and talks about something... telling me to take care of the egg and all. And this is where I call it a day! 1:38 and I have 2 pokemon, an egg, and a badge. Good start.
