The Monotype Challenge



Welcome! I'm sure that just by looking at the name of the challenge, you probably already 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 Pokémon for years, even before the inception of the term Challenge in the Pokémon 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 to give an environment to exercise the ideals of this challenge, and give people recognition for completing a journey with unique challenges.

The sixth generation of Pokémon is now upon us, and with it comes 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 this thread, 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 in a different way. But now, I am presenting the challenge in a thread all my own, and I can present it to you the way I believe it should be presented. My hope is to bring you the best experience possible. I think that's enough introductions, so let's get this show on the road!

Records of 5th gen Champions can be found here: Old Champions List

Rules

1. Your final team must consist of at least 2 Elite Four-viable Pokémon who share the type you specified in your sign up. No Pokémon may be used in Trainer Battles outside of that specified type. Monotypes may not be stacked into a single run. (ie, using Vileplume and Victreebel and calling it both Poison and Grass monotypes)

2. A Pokémon 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 Non-Legendary Pokémon of your type within your region's Pokédex. See below for a list of qualifying challenges. No hacking is permitted otherwise. Any hacked Pokemon must be 100% legal by the Trade Corner definition. Hacking or trading items into your game is never permitted. THE HACKED POKEMON IN QUESTION SHOULD NEVER BE TRADED IN TRADE CORNER!

3. Before you obtain the first Pokémon of your type, you may only use your starter Pokémon.

4. Pokémon outside your type may be used as long as they evolve into your type by the end of the challenge.

5. All Pokémon on this list are banned from use in this challenge: Banned Pokémon in Battle Maison

6. Trading is permitted for evolution and obtaining version exclusive Pokémon in your region's Pokédex that cannot be obtained otherwise, as long as its level does not exceed the highest level on your team. No Egg Moves for this trade in. You may hack Pokemon to evolve if they evolve by trading if you are incapable of doing so. If the Pokemon requires an item, wait til you have the item before hacking the evolution. Using a trade evolution patch on a ROM is also acceptable.

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. Pokéwalker and Pokémon Dream Radar may be used to obtain Pokémon of your type for the challenge, as long as they are imported directly into the game you are playing and not traded in from a separate game.

10. Dark- and Steel-type are exempt from needing Kanto for Ultimate Challenges, since the type was introduced in Generation 2, with only Magnemite being available in FireRed and LeafGreen with one of these types. Fairy-type cannot be used for Ultimate Challenges until ORAS is released.

11. Pokémon-Amie Bond may not be maxed (Sylveon only needs 2 hearts to evolve). Mega Evolution is permitted, but only Mega Evolutions that start off as your type and stay your type after evolving are allowed. No using Mega Charizard X in Flying or Dragon Monotypes for example.

12. An Ultimate Challenge is accomplished by reaching the End Game of one game from all six official region using the same type. They do not need to be completed in chronological order.

End Game Points
These points are considered the end of the game.
Kanto - Defeat Champion Blue (your rival) at the Indigo Plateau
Johto - Defeat Red at Mt. Silver
Hoenn - Defeat Steven (Ruby/Sapphire) or Wallace (Emerald) at Ever Grande City
Sinnoh - Defeat Cynthia in the Pokémon League
Unova - Defeat Ghetsis in N's Castle (Black/White), or Defeat Iris in the Pokémon League (Black 2/White 2).
Kalos - Battle AZ at the end of the game.
Hacks - Determined by player (usually, this is the Champion of the hack)

- Fighting Type in Blue Version

Nice to see the brand new Ultimate Monotype thread! I don't want to start any new challenges, but as I'll be slowly going through my copy of Pokemon Y to finish all of my ultimates, I'd like to go ahead and get my stuff from the previous thread transferred!

Pokémon Type: n/a
Challenge Type: Ultimate
Game(s): n/a
Previous Progress: Yes

--

Also, I've made quite a bit of progress on my Steel run on Ruby, so I figured I'd go ahead and kick off my updates in the new thread with an update on this challenge!

In my last update, I had made it up to Mauville and was training before taking on Watson. Since then, I managed to defeat Watson (his Magneton was a pain), and travel through the Fiery Path to the route right before Fallabor Town, where I caught my third and final team member, Skarmory! I spent some time training it, then continued around to Meteor Falls to move along with the game. After I defeated Team Aqua on top of Mt. Chimney, I at last arrived in Lavaridge Town, where I defeated Flannery, who was surprisingly easy. I then traveled to Petalburg, where I defeated Norman (pretty easy again because I resist Normal attacks). Then I traveled to the eastern part of Hoenn and up to Fortree City, where I had little trouble defeating Winona. I then went south and east to Lilycove, and defeated Team Magma at Mt. Pyre and in their hideout. Having completed that, I surfed to Mossseep where I took on and defeated the twins Tate and Liza. After earning my seventh gym badge, I finished up the plot line with Team Magma, eventually defeating Groudon in the Cave of Origin. And currently, I'm training up my team before taking on Wallace!

Team:
Mawile / lv46 / Vicegrip, Faint Attack, Astonish, Crunch
Aggron / lv46 / Metal Claw, Strength, Mud-Slap, Take Down
Skarmory / lv46 / Swift, Steel Wing, Fly, Spikes

Anyway, I have completed all types through Gen 5, although I am still in the postgame of my Water monotype on Black 2, so I will be posting updates on that when I get to it.

I forgot to add it when I submitted the thread yesterday, but as soon as I saw that the thread was live I put it in there at the beginning.

You don't have to have singles. I can just keep your stuff in Ultimates until it's able to be finished.

Ultimate Water Challenge, Platinum part 2
Spoiler:

Challenged Hearthome Gym, obtained Relic Badge. While fighting the trainers in the gym, Jessica evolved into Floatzel and learned Crunch, making Fantina incredibly easy.
Beat Rival (Rt.209) with laughable ease.
Obtained a few HM slaves on Route 209- Bibarel and Staravia
Obtained Goldeen, named Gabi, while fishing with my new Good Rod. Decided to leave it off the team for now.
Obtained HM05 in the Solaceon Ruins.
Challenged Veilstone Gym, obtained the Cobble Badge. It went easily enough.
Whooped some Galactic Grunts again.
Now with Fly, went back and cleared out some of the previous dungeons I skipped:
-Old Chateau, where I slaughtered Rotom with a critical Shadow Claw from Misty,
-Wayward Cave, where I evolved Maury into Gastrodon, who learned the newly obtained Earthquake,
-The Lost Tower, which I forgot about and WOW was I overleveled for all of these.
Obtained Remoraid (Pastoria City), named Sam.


DOUBLE UPDATE COMBO

Ultimate Water Challenge, SoulSilver part 2
Spoiler:

Arrived in Azalea, cleared Team Rocket out of Slowpoke Well.
Caught Slowpoke, named Wendy (Slowpoke Well, duh).
Challenged Azalea Gym. BUGSY ROUND 1: Died horribly.
Grinded a bit until everybody was at L17.
Challenged Azalea Gym again. BUGSY ROUND 2: Died slightly less, but stil very adequately, horribly.
Grinded some more until everybody was L19. Ridley evoled into Croconaw. All this grinding is why I got bored and moved on to Platinum.
Challenged Azalea Gym again again. BUGSY ROUND 3: Went much better this time- only Ridley and Dave (Krabby) were KO'd. Obtained Hive badge. Finally.
Defeated Rival (Azalea Town).
Arrived in Goldenrod.

Well for one thing, it shows you actually read the thread, which is very important. For another, it makes it much easier for me to add people when updating if I can copy and paste a name with no formatting, as copying the username area of a post heading can sometimes create weird problems.

my brother was actually doing a grass mono (pearl) and he's almost finished but doesn't have an account so can he sign up?

It's a bit missing the point, to answer the question for a very specific scenario. What about for example Venusaur/Vileplume/Victrebeel. Why shouldn't it count for both Grass and Poison?

I have a very good explanation for that question!
The prefix mono means one. Therefore, one time. If you want challenges like that, you're welcome to make a DuoType Challenge thread (:

I was using your sign up as an example is all, Sinxdx.

Thank you River, that's exactly right. I made a call a while back when a situation came up where someone was trying to stack all kinds of challenges together, and it resulted in that rule. It is primarily in place to avoid exploitation of the rules. I've been refining this set of rules for over a year now, you can trust that everything has a reason for being there.

Here we are, another new thread and i still haven't finished water!
I'd like to first ask, can i get my completed singles from the old thread over here? I can fill an application for them:


Forum User Name: Jespoke
Pokémon Type: Ground, Ghost, Dragon, Fire, Normal, Fighting
Challenge Type: Single
Game(s): They are all Kanto, though i can go dig up what specific versions they were on if necessary
Previous Progress: Yes, all finished. Some of them are from Alakazam17's ancient thread though.


Then moving on to current challenges, I'll start with my single Electric Kanto to add to the club, and the continuation of my Water ultimate that started way back in the early parts of the ancient thread:


Forum User Name: Jespoke
Pokémon Type: Electric
Challenge Type: Single
Game(s): Fire Red
Previous Progress: Yes, update very soon

Forum User Name: Jespoke
Pokémon Type: Water
Challenge Type: Ultimate
Game(s): Leaf Green, Soul Silver, Emerald, Platinum, Black 2, X
Previous Progress: Yes, not for the current game yet though.


And then there is my finished Bug ultimate from the old thread, which i will be doing 6th gen on as soon as Pokebank releases. Signup will have to wait i think.
Challenges:
Ultimate Monotype Challenge: Water: White 2 - 2/8

Just to make sure - dual types are allowed right? So I can use Shiftry, Cacturne and Sableye for dark monotype even though they have another type beside dark?
I don't care about EV's or IV's - I play for fun not competitive.
I don't own consoles - I play on emulators on my computer.

I am a fan of Criminal Minds, Crossing Jordan and some other series. I am also Harry Potter fan and Disney fan (I love Frozen!) - I also like other animes beside Pokemon.

Dual-typed Pokemon are allowed, so long as they have at least one type in common. You can use Shiftry, Caturne, and Sableye for a Dark run since they all are part Dark type.

What you can't do is make a team that does 2 monotypes at once. Meaning you can't have a team of Pelipper, Gyarados, and Swanna and say it counts as both a Water type run AND a Flying type run. It has to be one or the other.

This month we're celebrating the 1-year anniversary of Pokemon X/Y! Check out these events being held in Kalos's honor:
PR Video Contest
X/Y The Favorite Challenge
XY Anniversary Tournament

This month is also Halloween month, so make sure to stop by Necrum's Carnival of Horrors!

Yes you can. Anyone who says they have previous progress has their completed singles moved automatically. You don't have to write sign ups for them specifically.

Yes, Dual typed Pokemon are perfectly acceptable. Part of the fun is figuring out what team can best get you through the game and cover the most attacks and types.
