    I was just wondering if there were any other specific-type trainers out there in the community???

    Personally, I am a steel-type trainer. I love their designs and because I use Steel-type so much, I have become a good Steel EV trainer and all my steel-types are incredibly powerful now. Way more over-powered than the rest of my Pokemon.

    I also spend a lot of time using Fighting-types so I am starting to getting fairly good at using them too.

    Anyway, are any of you specific to one or two types??? OR do you mix it up a lot?

    (If this is in the wrong spot can one of the mods move it please?)

      I am a little mixed. One day I will start a team built of the same types, maybe have Electric and Poison types, since they are pretty much my favorite. But in the mean time I'm just mixed. :D

        I like mixing up my types, not just for strategical reasons, but I feel like it's funner that way.

        I've used monograss teams before in simulators (for the lulz), and I ran monosteel in the PWT.

          I would be cool trainer Green, cause I'm cool.

          Hehe nawh.. I am a mixed type though, I like to have a variety of types in my team, that way you're not completely screwed if you're a ground/rock type user and you're up against 5 Milotics.. So I guess I would be an Ace trainer I suppose?

              I would probably be a waffle. I'm not good enough to be a trainer

              ew...

              I'm definitely quite mixed. I did a Flying-type run on LeafGreen once (Charizard, Dragonite, Zapdos featured - you can see why I did it), but other than that I chop and change. I'll never use every pokémon (I don't want to use Seviper, Ekans for example), but I do try to have a different pokémon in my team that I haven't used each time.
              Even though I often don't use one, Dragons are definitely my favourite type though.

                I think when you are running monotypes you have to definately use dual-types to survive. My steel team are always decimated by Clay's gym so I used Empoleon and it was no problem...

                Dual-steel type are just the most amazingest thing ever they're so useful and amazing!!!! *faints*

                I try to mix up typings so I don't have to suffer against the types that are strongest against mine.

                  Going mixed is pretty neat.

                  Though, I do like going Ice-mono. Well, including dual types, but still Ice.
                  Because Ice is pretty dangerous.

                  Think about it.
                  Try to let it's horrid typing defences not sway your opinion of Ice types.
                  Or Bullet Punch- don't let it do that either.

                    I try to keep my team very diverse if possible. I usually make it a point to try and get dual-types on my team so I have a higher chance of having all my bases covered. Some single-type Pokemon I just love too much though, and I just have to have them on my team regardless. lol

                      I find myself being mixed, with a slight favoring of Flying types due to their abundance. Exactly what I'm raising can vary from game to game, but I'll often try to keep one water type, one grass type, and one fire type on my team at all times for decent coverage. This started back in Yellow for me, where you could receive all three starters (four with Pikachu I guess), allowing you to create a very powerful team. I'll also often have a Psychic type lying around too (Usually Espeon or Alakazam) for quick sweeping purposes.

                      Since I use Pokemon that are my favorites, the types in my teams will vary.

                      In my teams I usually have: Water type, Fighting type, Normal type, and a Grass Type.
                      and 2 Pokemon I have not used before regardless of type.

                      An example of my typical team would be (using my White team as my example) - also my favorite Pokemon, (hope this helps)
                      Water type (Dewott-with-everstone),
                      fighting type (Mienshao),
                      normal type (Watchog),
                      grass type (Leafeon)

                      and then 2 Pokemon I'm willing to try, so in my team/example I also have:
                      electric-type (Emolga)
                      dark-type (Liepard)

                      I'm mixed type trainer. I never have more than one Pokemon of one type (beside fire and dragon sometimes)

                          I'm a mixed trainer when I play through the main story of the game, and then I switch to my dragon types for post game and WiFi battles.

                              Well, like most others, I like diversity. I mean, I barely do a run-through without my grass, fire, water base. Though, it is fun to have a prevalent secondary typing.

                              I love me my bug pokemon!
                              So, I have been using, Leavanny, Volcarona, Gastrodon, Galvantula, Vespiquen, and Lilligant on my W2 Team currently. I have my base, plus a bug overtone. I know Gastrodon isn't bug-type, but she is Snail, a bit of deviation doesn't change that this is an insectoid team. Also, a flowering grass-type pokemon adds some variety. I mean, look at the elite four, they are very type-curious. I hope X and Y gives us another horde of bug-types. Gen V was just killer in that department!

                              Even without the secondary typing, I still enjoy my old gen bug teams.

                              II: Butterfree, Beedrill, Magcargo, Scyther, Venomoth, Meganium
                              III: Beautifly, Masquerain, volbeat, Illumise, Roselia, Flygon
                              IV: Wormadam (plant), Wormadam (sandy), Wormadam (trash), Mothim, Vespiquen, Roserade

                                  I normally have a mixed team, but it's always the same kind of team; fire, water, grass, dragon and then two other random Pokemon. If I had to choose a type, it would be fire.

                                  I'm predominantly a mixed team trainer, and my teams generally cover as many of the types as possible (including dual types, I like having ~10 types in my party).

                                  I have twice though tried using a monotype team, going with Normal type in FireRed and Bug type in HeartGold. Needless to say, I didn't fair all that well either time, and it wasn't long before I went back to using a varied team again.
