As far as I've seen, there is no thread for this as of this late stage. My friends and I were thinking of kicking up a mono-type tourny at school and I was wondering about the opinion of you guys when it comes to Gen V monotype battles. At some stage I'll list the threats of each type but as for now I'll just comment on how insanely OP weather is in this metagame. Drizzle wins the game even w/o SS. If you allow Blaziken and Venasuar sun tears stuff up and unless you chose a type that counters Excadrill you be screwed. What do you guys think about monotype and what type should I choose (assuming drizzle/drought are banned)? Normal: Togekiss, Lickilicky, Porygon-2, Porygon-Z, Blissey, Snorlax, Staraptor, Bibarel (LOL). Fire: Ninetales, Charizard, Blaziken, Infernape, Rotom-H, Heatran, Darmanitan, Vulcarana, Chandelure. Water: Politoed, Tenatacruel, Slowbro, Slowking, Jellicent, Vaporeon, Cloyster, Kingdra, Gyarados, Starmie, Omastar Kabutops, Azumarril, Octillery, Suicunem, Swampert, Gorybess, Rotom-W, Empoleon.
