STAB Mons Aerodactyl!

STAB BABY (Aerodactyl) @ Life Orb/Choice Band
Ability: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk / 252 Speed / 4 Def
Natura: Jolly/Adamant
-Brave Bird
-Head Smash/Stone Edge (Head Smash might a bit too much, probably remove it)
-Fire Fang/Earthquake
-Ice Fang/Crunch

So giving this thing the STAB moves it rightfully deserves allows it to actually be a decent Rock type Pokemon, giving Rock a reliable revenge killer to things like Keldeo that ISN'T Mega Diancie/CB terrak after webs are down. It also gives Rock actual checks to things such as Mega Gallade and Heracross. (It also stomps grass rofl) If Head Smash is allowed, it actually gets pretty crazy since things like Skarm on Flying suddenly don't want to take CB Head Smash, allowing Rock to pressure Flying alot better, probably turning the matchup into an actual win for Rock if it can work around Mega Gyarados. Oh, and it also gives Rock and actual counter to Mega Venu, can't forget that.

BB is there because it deserves it, Edge/Smash is for Flying, Fire Fang is there to ensure you actually beat Grass' Ferro but can have EQ over it for sniping Heatran's after Balloon is gone, and Ice fang is mostly there for annoyances like Gliscor and Garchomp, but Crunch hurts Psychic pretty bad.

So, I heard you were weak against steel types ::

(Don't say you don't find this adorable ^_^)
Typing : Rock/Fire
Stats : 82/125(+4)/119/49(-20)/59/91(+20)

Tyrantrum @ Lum Berry/Air Baloon/Chople Berry
Ability: Rock Head
EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Jolly Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Head Smash
- Flare Blitz
- Earthquake/Ice Punch

Well as we all know, rock types, however hard may they try, they still get fucked up by Mega-zor, or steel types in general, so here comes good'ol tyrantrum with it's new fancy typing of fire/rock. Though Fire/Rock is horrible defensive typing but it is freakishly hard to switch into. Also it helps so much in case of steel teams, as it is able to sweep whole steel teams after a DD which isn't that tough to pull off, given it's neutrality to steel moves and good physical bulk(Air Baloon assists even more so in this case). As a bonus, this thing makes grass teams bit easier to deal with as it can actually break through venu-ferro core with some prior damage on venu. The speed boost it gets, puts it above base 90s and most importantly out-speeding jolly scarf excadrill. +4 is added to attack to make it's base total 525.
For the last slot, earthquake hits heatran specifically but tbh, heatran is no switch-in to +1 head smash, I guess you can give it ice punch since it has 2 hands?(looking at you gastly -_-)

Few Calcs:
+1 252 Atk Tyrantrum Head Smash vs. 0 HP / 4 Def Heatran: 339-399 (104.9 - 123.5%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+1 252 Atk Tyrantrum Head Smash vs. 252 HP / 0 Def Mew: 357-421 (88.3 - 104.2%) -- 25% chance to OHKO
+1 252 Atk Tyrantrum Flare Blitz vs. 240 HP / 0 Def Eviolite Doublade: 270-318 (84.6 - 99.6%) -- 37.5% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock
252 Atk Tyrantrum Ice Punch vs. 72 HP / 0 Def Landorus-T: 348-412 (103.2 - 122.2%) -- guaranteed OHKO
+1 252 Atk Tyrantrum Head Smash vs. 100 HP / 0 Def Tyranitar: 330-388 (90.1 - 106%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
Incoming Probopass!

Probopass @ Leftovers / w/e
Typing: Rock / Electric
Ability: Levitate (because that's what it does)
Base stats: 60/50/145/115/150/40
Nature and EVs: Modest, 252 HP/Sp. Atk, 4 Def
-Power Gem
-Volt Switch / Thunder Wave / Earth Power / Stealth Rock

Rock doesn't need 3-4 different mons with the crummy rock/steel typing. However, Probopass already gets an assortment of electric moves (including stuff like discharge, magnet rise, T-wave, etc.). By giving Probopass rock/electric with levitate, you get rid of both its 4x weaks (barring mold breaker and friends), and in return you get a valuable steel resist that can eat a couple of bullet punches (or even superpower) from Mega-Scizor, the bane of rock teams. 40 BST boost to special attack to make it usable, while I have also given it Flamethrower for the express purpose of beating Scizors. (This will likely lose to Excadrills no matter what due to mold-breaker, and short of giving it Ice Beam which doesn't make much sense flavor-wise, it isn't going to get around Lando's focus blast either)..

Boosting Probopass like this also gives Rock a much-needed special attacker, while fitting in with the type's theme of slow, tanky mons.

Some calcs:

252+ SpA Probopass Flamethrower vs. 248 HP / 200 SpD Mega Scizor: 328-388 (95.6 - 113.1%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock
252+ SpA Probopass Thunder vs. 248 HP / 200 SpD Mega Scizor: 150-177 (43.7 - 51.6%) -- 99.6% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock (good luck hitting twice)

44 Atk Mega Scizor Superpower vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Probopass: 182-216 (56.1 - 66.6%) -- misses the 2HKO after attack drop
44 Atk Technician Mega Scizor Bullet Punch vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Probopass: 69-82 (21.2 - 25.3%) -- possible 5HKO after Leftovers recovery

Apart from Scizor, it will also be handy to fry some water types (most notably Slowbro, with STAB elec moves and it not minding Scald much), and as a much needed Skarmory stop (Skarmory being another bane for Rock teams).
With the release of Sun & Moon being less than a month away and the fact that we've gone through all 18 types, it's time for ORAS Monotype Theorymon to end. Thanks to everyone who participated and made my first ever project, Monotype Theorymon, the most popular Monotype project with over 400 replies and over 24k views.
