The Ultimate
Monotype Challenge



Welcome! I'm sure that just by looking at the name of the challenge, you probably have a good idea of what this challenge is. After all, this isn't a new concept. People have been doing play throughs using only one type of Pokemon for years, even before the inception of the term Challenge in the culture of Pokemon fandom. This is the original challenge, a concept instilled in our minds by the in game Gym Leaders who all seem to be Monotype Trainers of their own world. I take no credit for this concept. I don't think any one person possibly could. What I hope to do is give an environment for which to regulate the ideals of this challenge, and give people recognition for completing a journey with unique challenges.

Generation VI of Pokemon is now upon us, and with it carries a new generation for the Challenge world. A perfect time for a fresh start. This thread represents my full adoption of the Monotype Challenge. Before, I was merely keeping an old thread with many posts alive. As such I had very little flexibility for altering the rules without intruding on the fact that other people had already completed the challenge a different way. But now, I am presenting the challenge in a thread all my own, and can present it to you the way I believe it should be. My hope is to bring you the best experience possible. I think that's enough introductions, let's get this show on the road!


Rules
1. Your team must consist of at least 2 Elite Four viable Pokemon who share the type you specified in your sign up. No Pokemon may be used in Trainer Battles outside of that specified type. Monotypes may not be stacked into a single run.
2. A Pokemon of your type must be obtained before you earn your third badge. If this is impossible in your game, you may hack or trade a single Pokemon of your type within your region's Pokedex. See below for a list of qualifying challenges.
3. Until you obtain the first Pokemon of your type, you may only use your starter.
4. Pokemon outside your type may be used as long as they evolve in to your type by the end of the challenge.
5. The Pokemon on this list are banned from use in the challenge: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Battle_Maison#Banned_Pok.C3.A9mon
6. Trading is permitted for evolution and obtaining version exclusive Pokemon in your region's Pokedex, whom you could not obtain otherwise, as long as it's level does not exceed that of the highest level Pokemon on your team at the time of trading, and has no egg moves and is not RNGed (Though eggs are the preferred method).
7. HM Slaves are permitted. They do not need to match your type.
8. Hacked ROMs are permitted. Total hacks are only viable for single challenges. Hacks featuring an official region may be used for Ultimate Challenges.
9. Pokewalker and Dream Radar may be used to obtain Pokemon of your type for the challenge, as long as they are imported into the game your playing and not traded in.
10. Both Dark Type and Steel Type are exempt from needing Kanto for Ultimate Challenges, since the type was introduced in Gen 2, with only Magnemite being available in FireRed and LeafGreen with one of these types. Fairy Type cannot be used for Ultimate Challenges.
11. In Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, Pokemon Amie and Exp Share are banned from use. The only exception to this rule is for evolving Eevee into Sylveon.
12. An Ultimate Challenge is accomplished by reaching the End Game of one game from each official region using the same type. They do not need to be completed in chronological order.

End Game:
Kanto - Blue (Rival)
Johto - Red
Hoenn - Steven (Ruby/Sapphire), Wallace (Emerald)
Sinnoh - Cynthia

Now for the final update for Sapphire on my Fighting UMC! I didn't intend on adding Medicham to my team, but I ran into one in Victory Road that wouldn't let me run away, so I just caught it. But I sure am glad I did add it at the last minute to my team. With Shadow Ball and Ice Punch, it proved extremely helpful against Phoebe and Drake! I had a lot of trouble with Drake's Salamence though, but besides that the Elite Four and Champion were smooth sailing!

- Got the Blue Orb

Ultimate Water Monotype Challenge: Silver Version
5/8

So, I made my way through to Cinnabar Island, where I found out that Strength is required to get to Chuck, which is a pretty bad design choice but whatever. I backtracked to Olivine and wound up battling Jasmine out of order. She wasn't really hard it just took a while. Oh and I caught a Chinchou which is now a Lanturn.

Okay so I know I said I'd update when I caught up with my previous attempt, but I sort of started plowing through it, so now I'm just after catching Yveltal. I've been running a tighter more focused party so as to make the process faster. So this is the first monotype where I only used 4 Pokemon.

Hello, I was just posting to let you know that my username changed from Samurott01 to Feraligatr13. Also, I've decided to just continue Gen II Poison like I should have done instead of doing all of Gen I first. Currently I'm about 2 badges in, and I've got a Spinarak, Zubat, Tentacool, Bellsprout, and Gastly.

Did I already tell you I love the 60% chance of paralyzing of Thunder with Blissey ? :3 I've been to the Power Plant to gather the Thunder TM and then I headed to Saffron City.

Normal Ultimate Monotype Challenge - Kanto (8/8)

After Blaine, I decided to go to the Sevii Islands to train my pokemons to a decent level for the Elite 4. So I defeated every trrainer in there, and then go back to Viridian City to get my final badge. Giovanni was pretty weak and couldn't stand Suika's Surf, aaaaAAAA's Ice Beam and Stella's Meteor Mash :3 The end of Kanto is close now.

Update

  • Arrived in Cerulean City and decided to take on Misty, the trainers were easy but Starmie was a challenge.
  • I tried a second time but water pulse and it's confusion was just annoying.
  • I bought a few potions and got lucky on my 3rd attempt, thanks to Hyper Fang I got the Cascade Badge.
  • Went north to Route 24 and easily defeated my rival, his Bulbasaur was no match for Pidgeotto.
  • The nugget bridge was fun but easy, I went east to Bill's House and got the S.S. Ticket.
  • Returned to Cerulean City and defeated the Rocket at the back of the Burgled house and taught Dig to Raticate.
  • Headed down to Route 5 and caught a Meowth, gained her a few more levels.
  • Went through the tunnel and defeated the trainers on route 6, using mostly Meowth.
  • Arrived in Vermilion City and went and got the bike voucher but didn't bother going back to Cerulean City to use it.
  • Went on the S.S. Anne defeated all trainers and my rival and got Cut from the captain, taught it to Meowth.
  • Next stop was the Gym, rather easy due to my Raticate knowing Dig, but Surge's Raichu was annoying with it's double team but in the end I got the Thunder Badge.
  • Taught Shock Wave to Meowth...

The Team

Meowth, - L26
Ability: Pickup
Moves: Cut, Faint Attack, Bite, Shock Wave


Pidgeotto, - L27
Ability: Keen Eye
Moves: Tackle, Sand-Attack, Wing Attack, Quick Attack

Raticate, ♂ - L27
Ability: Run Away
Moves: Dig, Thief, Quick Attack, Hyper Fang[/SPOILER]

Here's my update for Yellow! It proved to be a little more difficult than Red and Blue. Blaine was easy, and I managed to defeat Giovanni single-handedly with Pikachu after six Double Teams. Magneton single-handedly dealt with Lorelei, Agatha, Lance, and Bruno's 3 fighting types (which were taken out by Jolteon), so Magneton would have to by MVP for the Elite Four. However, my rival proved to be much more difficult. Eventually I was able to get in 6 Double Teams with Pikachu against Sandslash, and with Pikachu's extremely high evasion I went ahead and used Pikachu to deal with the rest of the Champion's team! I'm either going to work on completing Gold (Flying UMC) or Silver (Electric UMC) next.

- Traveled to Cinnabar Island
- Got the Secret Key in the Pokemon Mansion
- Defeated Blaine
- Flew to Viridian City
- Defeated Giovanni
- Defeated my rival
- Traveled through the Badge Checkpoint
- Traveled through Victory Road
- Arrived at Indigo Plateau
- Defeated Lorelei
- Defeated Bruno
- Defeated Agatha
- Defeated Lance
- Defeated the Champion, my rival
Electric UMC Kanto: Complete!

Team:
Pikachu / lv59 / Thunderbolt, Double Team, Body Slam, Thunder
Magneton / lv61 / Thunderbolt, Thunder, Swift, Thunder Wave
Jolteon / lv58 / Thunder, Skull Bash, Double Kick, Pin Missile

Well, I decided to tackle Silver next! I only have 3 more started challenges after this: Gold, Emerald (both Flying) and Dragon on Y. In my last update for Silver, I had defeated the E4, traveled to Kanto's Power Plant, did the Power Plant/Magnet Train sidequests, and caught an Electabuzz. I then went back to Johto to train my team up to level 50, so that is where this update starts off. I didn't have any trouble with the Kanto Gym Leaders, and I decided to try to take on Red without grinding, and defeated him on the first try! Pikachu, Espeon, and Venusaur, went down pretty easily, and then there was Snorlax.. I ended up having to stall through all of its attacks until it only had PP left for Amnesia before slowly whittling down its HP with Lanturn's Take Down. Then Charizard went down without a fight, and I was able to take care of Blastoise even though his powered-up Surfs were taking a toll on my team.

- Traveled back to Kanto
- Defeated Lt. Surge
- Traveled to Saffron City
- Defeated Sabrina
- Traveled to Celadon City
- Defeated Erika
- Traveled to Fuchsia City
- Defeated Janine
- Traveled to Lavender Town
- Got the Kanto Radio card
- Traveled to Cerulean City
- Found Misty on Route 25
- Defeated Misty
- Flew to Vermilion City
- Woke the Snorlax
- Went through Diglett's Cave to Route 2
- Arrived in Pewter City
- Defeated Brock
- Traveled to Viridian City

- Spoke to Blue
- Traveled to the Seafoam Islands
- Defeated Blaine
- Flew to Viridian City
- Defeated Blue
- Flew to Pallet Town
- Traveled to Mt. Silver
- Defeated Red

Magneton / lv56 / Rain Dance, Thunder, Swift, Return

Here is my first (and last) update for my Flying run on Emerald. I started this a while ago on an emulator on my phone, so I've been playing it just when I can for a few months now, which is why I haven't done any updates as well. I didn't really run in to much difficulty at any point in the challenge. I may try to get a picture up too, though I'm not sure if I'll be able to easily get it off of my phone.

Team:
Pelipper / lv55 / Surf, Ice Beam, Wing Attack, Shock Wave
Swellow / lv54 / Aerial Ace, Double Team, Fly, Return
Crobat / lv54 / Wing Attack, Return, Confuse Ray, Poison Fang
Altaria / lv54 / Dragon Claw, Peck, Earthquake, Take Down

-Got critted at last pokemon.....

Should i just give up? Clearly my team isn't strong enough to beat him,BUT,i don't have anything to do. If i lose and run i would have to beat Archer again and then Giovanni will ambush me again and i'll lose again. If i won't run and stay,i'm stuck in a loop of losses. Advice anyone?

Fairy Monotype Challenge: Y
8/8

Wulfric took a couple of tries, but once I taught Togekiss Flamethrower it was a breeze. Then came the Elite 4. 3 of them were pretty easy, but Wikstrom was a real pain. I wound up using Power Up Punch spam to get Azumarill strong enough, but then lost to a crit. I pulled it together though and won the match.

Then came the Champion, and boy was she hard! Most of her team was simple enough, but Mega Gardevoir was intense! In the end I beat her with my own Gardevoir at 10 levels lower, which was no problem once I got the Calm Minds running.

So I finished the challenge finally, and not a moment too soon as Pokemon Bank will be out soon.

Another question, I wanted to have a Kangaskhan with the Poke Walker, but I'm playing on a linker (and emulator for screenshot) so I can't use this. Can I hack in one ?

UPDATE:

Y - Forgot to bring my Y with me so I can't look and see time/level of my Pokemon when I entered HOF, but my team was Chesnaught, Hawlucha, Medicham, Scrafty, Lucario, and Toxicroak.

Platinum(3/8) - Started the game on my bus ride last night, picked Chimchar as my starter and quickly rushed to train up to level 14 so I would have Mach Punch. I then proceeded to wipe the floor with Roark, 1/8. Caught myself a Machop in Route 7 and then went on with the story. Easily managed to beat Gardenia with my Monferno, 2/8. Proceeded to train up some MORE and then managed to beat Fantina quite easily with Monferno, even though her Haunter hurt me a lot! 3/8. Caught myself a Ralts while on Route 208, and he is now a Kirlia just waiting for that Dawn Stone to find him. I also traded with myself in order to evolve my Machoke into Machamp.

Current team:

Flappy the Kirlia, Level 20
- Confusion
- Double Team
- Teleport
- Lucky Chant

Choppy the Machamp, Level 30
- Revenge
- Leer
- Vital Throw
- Karate Chop

Punchy the Monferno, Level 30
- Fury Swipes
- Flame Wheel
- Grass Knot
- Mach Punch

Now for my final update on Gold! Getting the 8 Kanto badges was a breeze, but once I had defeated Blue and the E4 a second time my team was only at level 54. So I spent the last few hours grinding them to level 59 and used a Rare Candy on 3 to get them to level 60. I expected Red to be really difficult this time, as I had very limited coverage and weaker attacks in general (besides Gyarados). However, Red was extremely easy. Scyther 2HKO'd Pikachu, Gyarados 2HKO'd Charizard, and Espeon went down relatively easily. Then Red sent out Snorlax, who I was mainly afraid of. However, Noctowl used Return 3 times before being knocked out (which left Snorlax with one fourth it's HP), and I was sure it was about to use Rest.. But nope, I sent in Gyarados, used Hyper Beam, and it fainted. Blastoise and Venusaur went down easily to Gyarados' Thrash and Scyther's Wing Attack.

Now that I am done with that, I am finally done with the (18 I believe) monotypes I had started last June/July! For now I'm going to focus on updating my Gen 5 standard ultimates on Pokemon Y, as well as working on my started ultimates (Electric, Flying, and Steel)! Also, Merry Christmas everyone!
