mono type question

Post by dedoombringer » Sun Jun 05, 2016 1:17 am

Which do you think is the easiest type to mono team and which is the hardest? This is gen 6 and on.

Of course I'm going to say the easiest is Water. It has the most variety and it has every single type for secondary use. And most of these are some scary pokemon. Just look at Garydose and Kingdra. Mix in any kind of support (polytoad) or just prepare for any challenge with some very strong pokemon. This had got to be the easiest type to mono team a game.

Now for the hardest it gets tricky. You can't just look at what had the least variety because you get dragon and ghost. These two types can own games easy enough. Poison also does it's job to well of watching you die slowly. Dark and fighting are both low on variety but decent on utility so I'm not picking them. We ask see that this is heading straight to me picking Ice as the hardest type to mono team. There really aren't many impressive ice types and they are very low in quantity. They get wrecked by very common moves and generally don't have a backup plan. They do one thing and they do it poorly. Ice you are the weakest link imo.

What do you guys think?

I think flying would be one of the easiest teams to build, alongside Water of course.

Hardest would be definitely Ice, no question there ^^

/Offtopic I had a random thought about a new typing, Normal/Ghost, It seems a good idea though hard to implement. 3 Immunities, 2 Resistances and 1 Weakness.

I can think of 3 good insects, not sure there is a good variety of good moves on decent insects.

Fairy, newest type. Just a lack of options.

You do know that they changed allot of older pokemon to fairy right? And with the immunity to dragon attacks and strong against some more common moves pokemon like Chancy and Azumarill kinda just laugh when attacks are sent their way. Plus they have Mahwale which just rules.

Bugs have the best combo in bug steel (imo) and they have atleast 3I cab think of. You throw Scyther in and Heracross with the volcano bug and you have a solid rush them to death team that only fears fire. Also mega Beedrill is kinda boss.
