Monotype Pokemon Availability Guide

Hello there!

Having found BIGJRA’s resource immensely useful during my Pokemon Reborn monotype runs, I was looking for something similar for this game. The man himself made a version some 5-6 years ago, which is now obviously outdated, and I couldn’t find anything more recent. So I took it upon myself to compile a guide myself. After unguided monoice and monofighting playthroughs (and lots of time looking through the route encounters on the wiki) I think I’ve achieved something fairly accurate. It goes up to the Pokémon League as of now, so Pokemon relegated to the post-game, like some Deltas and most Legendaries, aren’t included. If you notice any errors, please do not hesitate to make a comment and I will correct it!

Thanks to BIGJRA for inspiration and for formatting, which I am shamelessly copying :blush:

Updated to version 1.2.7

This is a list that shows what different Pokemon are available at any given time in game in a monotype run.

Each spoiler represents one section of the game, separated by certain level-capped fights on Hard difficulty. They include the most readily available member of the evolution line of the Pokemon, and do not mention Pokemon available in previous areas—though many evolved Pokemon can be found in the wild at later stages, allowing simpler acquisition, this guide’s sole focus is on when a Pokemon is first available. In cases where two evolutions of the same family become available simultaneously, the earliest evolution will be listed. Pokemon that first become available in the Friend Safari will be listed once more when they are able to be encountered elsewhere. The guide may not be completely accurate if playing with Purity Mode enabled.

Eevee is listed once more when it becomes available to players who did not choose it as a starter.

  • Italics indicate Pokemon that will evolve into a given type.
  • Underline indicates Pokemon that will lose that type by their final evolution (mainly for collecting).
  • Strikethrough indicates Pokemon which will have a mega-evolution that changes into the target type, such as Sceptile → Dragon. Whether or not these are legal for your monotype run prior to obtaining the appropriate mega stone, or at all, is up to you.
  • An asterisk* indicates Pokemon available earlier than the given section via Friend Safari.

All types that do not feature any new Pokemon will be listed at the bottom of each spoiler.

Everything else (WIP!)


There’s an option if you click the gear icon. Like so:

Ah, thank you! I’ve changed the sections to be spoilers now; I find it easier to navigate like this.

could also mention purity starters

tbh that would be kinda unneeded purity mode is getting removed in 1.3

Right, there’s a purity mode option. I think for the sake of readability I won’t account for purity mode being enabled, as it would affect all the Delta Pokemon. If there are many requests for it I might reconsider, but for now I’ll just add a disclaimer to the introduction.
