I've been playing Pokemon X since the release and I just bought Pokemon Y. I decided I want to use just 1 type the whole play-through, like a gym leader. So, I decided to look up a challenge for something like this and I found the monotype challenge. It seems like it's perfect for what I want to do, so I'm doing it. ^_^
For those who don't already know, here's the rules.
Monotype Challenge

1. Whatever type you choose, you can ONLY use that type for the whole playthrough. You may NOT switch mid-game; You choose electric, you're sticking with electric until the end!
2. You may not use two Pokémon from the same evolution family. If your type is grass, for example, you cannot use both Vileplume and Bellossom.
3. Dragon, Ghost, and Ice types are banned from this challenge, as they're incredibly scarce in-game. Different games have different accessibility to types, so try not to choose a type that's way too limited for the game you're playing. (Example: You definitely do not want to choose Fire for your Pearl Monotype, but it'd be fine for a Black 2 Monotype.)
4. You may use a Pokémon who is not the type you chose, but is going to be in the future. For example, if your type is Flying, you can start with Charmander and keep it because it will eventually be a Charizard, which is part flying.
5. Yes, this means dual types are completely allowed!
6. If your starter isn't (and never will be) your type, you can still use it, until you are able to catch a Pokémon of your type. Then your starter must be released/permanently boxed.
7. You are allowed 2 trades total for each Monotype challenge. This includes trading from another game to obtain a Pokémon you couldn't normally get until later, in-game trades, and trading over Pokémon you can't normally catch in that game as well. (Trading solely to evolve your Pokémon does not count toward this rule and is always permitted.)

Anyways, I was wondering if you guys have every done this challenge before and if you enjoyed it?

Oh, and the type I chose was Fire.
^_^ <3

I'm contemplating going through it a second time after Pokemon Bank is released.
My second time through will be using Dark types.
For the moment though, I'm just waiting for Y to finish downloading.

I completed my first 6th gen game using flying types in pokemon y. I haven't decided on pokemon x yet but i'm still fairly early in the game.
I didn't know where to get a magikarp/gyarados so I stuck with pelipper.

    Good luck with all this! I could never do this, along with the NuzLocke challenge.

    You chose Fire? That's my favorite element. You'll have a hell of a time in the Rock gym, though.

I always go with certain types according to the games and YI chose fire types too :3 Oh and if you have Fennekin's psychic moves for the rock gym that's pretty helpful. Good luck blaugh
