Hi, I've been examining your Monotype progress. You didn't exactly follow the rules when forming your team. Even under the previous version of the rules, trading or hacking in Pokemon early in the game is only allowed if Pokemon of your type are not available. Since you started while the thread was not under any real supervision, I'll ignore it and allow you to continue. But if you decide to do another Monotype challenge in the future, you need to catch your Pokemon in game.
