Best Pokémon Games Of All Time_205

As I’m composing and writing this blog post, Pokémon Go is releasing Sinnoh Pokémon onto the streets. Now, I really like the different productions for one reason or another but Generation 4 appears to have a particular spot in my heart as that was once I got back to Pokémon following a long hiatus. In particular, Pokémon Platinum ranks as among my favorite Pokémon games as they took Diamond and Pearl and enhanced everything about these games creating a leading classic.

But we’re here in order to ascertain which types are the very best to get a Monotype (or solitary Type) Run that’s a run in which you only catch and train 1 type of Pokémon. And unfortunately, the Sinnoh matches are either hit or miss. Although more Pokémon have been released, Diamond and Pearl simply have 150 Pokémon available so you get some fairly average runs. Platinum thankfully adds 60 greater Pokémon into Sinnoh that makes a good deal of types achievable or splendid.

I’ve written previous articles on Monotype Run so check out those. But for people who are unfamiliar here are the rules.

  1. Just Pokémon of a particular type might be caught and educated.
  2. You need to grab the first Pokémon available of this type if your starter doesn’t match that kind (you will then have to disregard that beginner ).
  3. You may train a Pokémon that evolves to said type as long as you do it ASAP.
  4. No trading enabled
  5. Only Pokémon captured before Elite Four have been counted.

Without further ado, let’s take a look! A listing of full team combinations are seen below too.

The Very Greatest Types

Starting with the best tier I would say the Water, Poison, Traditional , Psychic, Steel, along with Struggling forms are types you should go for due to their commonality, early availability and type coverage. This is the very first time in the series in which Poison can shield itself from Psychic attacks thanks to both Drapion and Stuntank and when you have Roserade, Toxicroak, Crobat, and Tentacruel financing up you you’re in for a good time. Struggling types meanwhile have a close consistent occurrence-rate as you’ve got Chimchar as your starter and then later you have Medicham, Toxicroak, and, of course, Lucario. Water is amazing as usual but this run is unique since you have Empoleon who is incredibly uncommon and astonishing. Empoleon’s presence also makes the Sinnoh games a hidden jewel for a metal group, certainly don’t miss it here.

Meanwhile, the Platinum enhances these kinds farther and make Ground and Flying types entertaining…thanks tooooo Gliscor! Gliscor’s wonderful type combo enhances both of these types and come-on, it’s Gliscor, they are the best. You also can prepare a Mamoswine for Ground and a Togekiss and Yanmega for Flying.

The Wrong Forms

Like routine, Dragon along with Ice are types I strongly advocate against. Even with Platinum these types suffer because of late game availability (especially Ice), restricted selections, and inadequate coverage. Furthermore, if you’re playing Diamond or Pearl, then Fire and Electric are fairly abysmal. Sure, you can capture both types early on however there are barely any of these. Platinum improves their diversity and makes them more doable but it will definitely not be a walk in the park. Dark types can also be rather dismal if your enjoying Pearl or Platinum as they’re accessible mid-game at best and there’s a lackluster motto. Fortunately, at Diamond, you can catch a Murkrow at Eterna Forest after the first gym.


If you already skipped ahead and hunted through the listing, you might have discovered Spiritomb is lacking from the Dark and Ghost type lists. That is because he’s one of the toughest non-legendary Pokémon to catch. You want to acquire the Old Keystone, that is not too difficult, but you also need to speak to 32 people in the underground. They must be real people also and not NPCs! Luckily, you will only need one other person with Diamond/Pearl/Platinum to perform it. However, because you will need an additional copy of the game to be able to get Spiritomb this disqualifies Spiritomb according to our principles. Nevertheless, Dark kind still has neutral policy thanks to Drapion.
