My name means "lighthouse" or "a beacon of light" so I'm definitely thinking Ampharos. Electric.
But another meaning of my name is a sweet alcohol, and there was a song about a woman with my name and a man who was a sailor.. Lighthouse + Alcohol + Sailors lover makes me think water.
So... Water or electric.

My real name means "of the sea" so I'd say Water-types. My username means "meow" so cats :D

Let's see...my real name is Mori which sounds kind of dim so I would have to say either Dark-Type or Ghost-Type Pokemon

Dark type, because Super Luck, of course if I was a Gym leader, it'd be based on Critical Hits, so Farfetch'd would be allowed.

I personally think Ledian should be Bug/Fighting and Farfetch'd should be Flying/Fighting.

My name is Michael; it's an extremely common name, therefore it obviously specializes in very common types: Normal-types! I don't mind, though, because I like a lot of Normal-type Pokémon. It helps that my all-time favorite Pokémon is a Normal-type. X) And even though there aren't a ton of Bug-types, I think they're quite common, as well, so I think bugs would be another specialization. So, I guess a Bug- & Normal-type trainer? XD Personally, however, I'd use any type.
Intentional reference to Pokémon XD? You start with Eevee, get Teddiursa early, and can snag some bugs early on.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

It's pretty obvious that the name "Brendan" doesn't bring any type to mind. So what's the most monotyped type in Hoenn?
Of the three original meanings I've seen for the name (mine as well), are Prince, Sword and Little Raven. The only of those that make much sense for a type would be Little Raven, which could be Flying or even Dark type (or both, like Murkrow and Honchkrow).

Other than that, I would have to agree with whatever the stereotypical monotype for Hoenn is.

I'm guessing Water types? Otherwise, I'd probably say Grass types, as my name does come from the word olive, which would mostly relate to Grass types, I guess :p

Electric-types fo sho.

Possibly Bug-types because of Azalea, but when I picked that name it really had no connection to Azalea Town. I just really like the flower lolol.

Grass Type. Those Pokemon have always been my favorite. Since I choose a Chikorita on my Silver Version. I'm always choosin' da grass starter on every Pokemon game I play; it's usually be my first playthrough, however.
