If you had to specialize in 1 type of Pokémon, what would you choose?

Discussion in 'Pokémon Chat' started by Jon123, May 13, 2014.

  1. Also, what Pokémon would you choose in your team?
    This is if you were in a position such as a gym leader, elite 4 member, etc., so no major legendaries

    I personally would use normal types due to they're ability to adapt to many situations, and the fact that some of them are downright badass. Also, nearly half of the flying types I like are part normal.
    Swellow
    Tauros
    Mega Kangaskhan
    Porygon-Z
    Zangoose
    Meloetta
    (Like I said, unimportant legends are ok)

  7. Probably steel-types. I'd roll with Metagross, Steelix, Aggron, Aegislash, Empoleon, and Magnezone, if we're going by favorites.
     
  8. random ones i chose

    dragon team
    hydreigon
    charizard (with x mega stone)
    flygon
    dragonite
    goodra
    tyrantrum

    fighting team
    lucario (with mega stone)
    infernape

    heracross

    ghost
    spiritomb
    chandelure
    gengar (with mega stone)
    mismagius
    gourgeist
    aegislash

    those were the ones i had at the top of my head, but in my opinion all types are good (except bug, only a select few like pinsir and volcarona are good)
     
  9. Grass, which happens to be my favorite type.

    Leafeon
    Chesnaught
    Mowtom
    (Mega)Venusaur
    Whimsicott
    Cradily

    Which is the team in my sig.
     
  10. Personally I would specialise in Normal

    Cinccino
    Furret
    Braviary
    Sawsbuck
    Purugly
    Zangoose
     
  11. I would open up an Ice type Gym if i would specialize in one type maybe dark as well :\

    If I had to specialise in a Type it'd have to be Flying, even though that'd mean I couldn't have Manectric. I'd just have to have mine as my loyal companion and not use him for battle xD

    My Flying Types of choice ♥

    Murkrow
    Archeops
    Dragonite
    Gliscor
    Talonflame
    Skarmory

    + Tornadus (Therian) if unimportant legendaries are fair game... with it being the only pure Flying Type it should really be on the team xD One of the others can sub-out every now and then.

    Choices are down to personal favourites, especially Murkrow and Archeops, nothing more xD
     
  13. Eevolution is a type, right? *brick'd*

    A while back I had the idea for a Dark type team. It consisted of Murkrow, Spiritomb, Drapion, Weavile, Houndoom and Umbreon. I should look into that, with the additions of Gen 5 and 6 pokes, it has some potential.

    AzureEdge ✧luzrov rulay✧

    It'd be between psychic or dark. I love both types so much, it's impossible to choose one.
    For psychic it'd be - gardevoir, gallade, malamar, espeon alakazam, and meowstic
    For dark it'd be - malamar, mighteyana, houndoom, umbreon, absol, and zoarark
     
  15. WATER- it has a lot of pokemon and some of my favorite pokemon, like swampert and feraligatr.
     
  16. I'd say Poison types. Straight Poison types only have two weaknesses and Weezing only has one. :) But there's a lot of useful dual types out there too. Venusaur, Arbok, Weezing, Drapion, Victreebel, Muk, Crobat, Venomoth, the list goes on. I find them to be very versatile.

  17. Steel Ferrothorn, Aegislash, Klinklang, Bronzong, Durant, & Scizor (Mega)
     
  18. I would probably just use Dark type Pokémon, because they are so strong, and most of them only are weak against Fighting type Pokémon.

    This would be my Dark type Pokémon team:

    Darkrai
    Yveltal
    Mightyena
    Spiritomb
    Greninja
    Sableye (Mega)

    This is tough for me. ;_;
    I really love several types of Pokemon but if I had to choose only one to train then nothing feels quite right except for Fire-types. Don't even fully know why.

    Potential Team
    006.png (Because I adore Charizard ♥)
    059.png (Because I also really love Arcanine ♥)
    257.png or 392.png (Can't decide. I'd want only one of them but I really like them both! </3)
    609.png (I've always been interested in training one yet never have...)
    637.png (Because it's awesome)
    663.png (Gale Wings) or 479h.png (Because Levitate and I like its dual typing)

    I have no idea how versatile this team would actually be but I would likely swap out Talonflame for Heat Rotom if I wasn't able to use Mega Charizard X. Having three Pokemon on the same team with a x4 Rock-type weakness likely wouldn't be the brightest idea. :p I really like both Houndoom and Camerupt but I've always found that I prefer other Fire-types to them in practice. That being said, if I was able to have Mega Houndoom then I'd highly consider finding a place for it on the team - because giant demon puppy is love. ♥ In that situation I'd just keep Charizard as standard Charizard.

    If I could get away with having a Heatran I'd likely toss it on the team somewhere, too, as it's a silly thing and I've always liked it and its typing/stat spread. :)
     
  20. Wow, this is a hard choice as I love so many pokemon, though if I had to choose one type it would be grass type. :D
    My team would probably be:
    Venusaur, Ludicolo, Chesnaught, Rotom (Lawnmower form), Torterra and Tropius.
    Though there are a few others that I might use instead such as Breloom, Gogoat, Whimsicott, Meganium or Serperior. :3
     
  21. I'd say the Dragon type. Not only are dragon tamers like Lance and Clair absolutely badass, they're also really strong with lots of type resistances. My team would probably be...

    [​IMG]Goodra (It's sooooooo CUTE!! Also, it's attack is high and stuff...)

    [​IMG] Charizard (Not a real dragon, but lets be serious here.)

    [​IMG]Flygon (80 base stats in everything but Attack and Speed, but I don't care.)

    [​IMG]Dragonair (Why not Dragonite? 'Cuz Dragonair is more awesome.)

    [​IMG]Druddigon (Always liked Druddigon more than Hydreigon.)

    [​IMG]Altaria (Gotta love those cloud-wings.)
     
  22. I would use flying type pokemon-
    1. Mega charizard y
    2. Dragonite
    3. Skarmory
    4. Togekiss
    5. Drifblim
    6. Staraptor
    I know some of them have major weakness to ice, rock and electric type moves but still I'll use them because I love flying types!

  23. Hmmm.... Thats tough because there are a few types I like, my two favorites types are Steel and Fairy, but I like grass to...ugh.... So hard... How about I give an example of all three types (well you know what I mean)

    If I specialized in fairy types I'd have:

    Mawile (Mega evolves) - Female
    Togekiss - Female
    Aromatisse - Female
    Gardevoir - Female
    Granbull - Female
    Clefable - Female

    If I specialized in Steel types I'd have:

    Aggron (Mega evolves) - Female
    Skarmory - Female
    Bisharp - Male
    Metagross
    Magnezone
    Steelix - Female

    If I specialized in Grass types I'd have:

    Venusaur (mega evolves)-Female
    Roserade - Female
    Tropius - Female
    Serperior - Female
    Rotom (mower form)
    Ferothorn - Male

  25. Well, I'd choose Psychic, of course:
    Xatu (Ace), Female
    Metagross
    Delphox, Male
    Medicham, Female
    Slowking, Male
    Gardevoir, Female
     
  26. I'd have to run with some form of Grass, Poison or Rock-type team. I already have most of them trained up, actually! They're Gen V, so no Mega's or VI, but that's fine. I think the Grass-type is my favourite, so I'll list that off :)

    Roserade, Jumpluff, Cradily, Torterra, Parasect and Exeggutor. Cradily and Torterra are the core, with Roserade and Jumpluff to abuse any weather or specifically sun, and Parasect and Exeggutor can get some work done in Exeggutor's Trick Room :D
     
  27. voidaquariums

    voidaquariums Formerly Luxray901

    I'd have to say Dark types. While I feel more comfortable with Poison types at heart, I have to say that DEM DARK TYPES--*cough*-- have nice stats. *twitch*

    Weavile-- Need I say any more? >:D
    Yveltal-- FLYING BACON BIRD OF DEATH.
    Houndoom-- Burn fire dog. Duh.
    Umbreon-- DEEEFENSE
    Hydreigon-- Big dragon is big. And strong.
    And last,
    ...MALAMAR. I don't like it in particular, but it's BEAST.
    If Mega Luxray were dark-type and a thing I'D CHOOSE IT TO THE END OF THE WORRRLDDDD.

  29. BUG TYPES!!!

    They are awesome because they can inflict lots of status conditions, plus they are Bugs! If they didn't have so many weaknesses they would be perfect ♥.

    Shedinja: It has the best ability ever!
    Armaldo: It's also a rock type, so it can actually do some damage to fire types.
    Ariados: Yay for poisoning stuff!
    Kricketune: Can put Pokems to sleep.
    Yanmega: It's a big dragonfly.
    Volcarona: It's a big and fire type, and therefore defies logic!
     
  30. ill use gallade in a fighting type gym
     
  31. Welllllll I guess I'd go with Fire-type.
    Wait, I ain't gonna guess, I knowwwwww!
    First of all - Arcanine ( duh~)
    Darmanitan
    Camerupt
    Flareon
    Chandelure
    That's it I guess... :)
     
  32. hmm... probably Grass (Meganium, Roserade, Leafeon, Gogoat, Torterra and Abomasnow) or Fairy ((Mega) Gardevoir, Togekiss, Dedenne, Azumarill, Sylveon and Carbink).
     
  33. Normal types! ...Don't judge.

    The team would be Eevee, Cinccino, Glameow, Furret, and Braviary. :blush:
     
  34. Ghostly-Hedgehog

    Ghostly-Hedgehog Formerly Colleen

    Fire or ummmmm……………dragon type heres my list......
    Fire
    Charizard X-male
    Ninetales-female

  36. Green Dragon

    Green Dragon Formerly supertrainer300

    Hm. Water is my favorite type, but nothing feels right except. . . Ghost. Don't even know.

    Team:
    Chandelure. Because they are bossz.
    Gengar. Because scrry.
    Aegislash. Trololol.
    Shedinja. Strategy is boss.
    Trevenant. Because ghost tree.
    Jellicent. The one 'Dex entry that scares the @%#^ outta me.
    Yay!
     
  37. Either Posion or... nope, just Posion.
    Seviper (duh)
    Muk
    Nidoking
    Drapion
    Weezing
    Venusaur
     
  38. I'd of course specialize in Grass type ~
    Hoppip [​IMG] - I prefer cute/ pretty over useful.
    Sawsbuck [​IMG] - Stags are cool?
    Gogoat [​IMG] - I would ride this thing everywhere.
    Tropius [​IMG] - HM Slave for Fly, Cut, Strength and Rock Smash.
    Lombre [​IMG] - HM Slave for Surf, Waterfall and Dive.
    Not sure about the last space, but I'd probably go for Sunflora [​IMG], since it's my Pokésona.
     
  39. Kind of hard for me to choose, as my favorite Pokemon I didn't choose for the type, but for the animal it's based on. Majority of the foxes I like are fire type - I'll go with that:
    Braixen (everstone), my #1 favorite Pokemon, it would have to be part of my team
    Ninetales
    Flareon
    Delphox (one fully evolved)
    the next two would be fire type Pokemon I also like:
    Arcanine
    Infernape
