I forgot to mention this before, but I noticed that there are a lot of Fighting types in X. So much so that I plan on doing a Mono-type run sometimes in the future.

My Fighting Mono-type team would include:

Chesnaught
Pangoro
Scrafty
Toxicroak
Lucario
Hawlucha

[In Progress] Mono Steel (Pearl): Bronzong, Empoleon, Bastiodon, Steelix, Riolu/Lucario, [Blank spot] (Not enough Steel types in the game other than Trash Wormadam, which means fumbling around with honey mechanics. Maybe Skarmory will take this slot in the post-game.)
No longer "in progress!" It's done! Beat the game with a team of 5. While Lucario was kinda fun to use, Bronzong was the real MVP for tanking Cynthia's Garchomp like a boss. Oh, and Empoleon for... sweeping Bertha and Flint, I guess.

Now I'm on Mono Psychic in Ultra Sun. It's been more painful than the other two since Psychic isn't especially an good type defensively.
Current lineup: Alakazam, Malamar, Alolan Raichu, Metagross, Xatu, Mr. Mime

Definitely Ghost. I got into a battle with this Mono team on ORAS that made it onto YouTube, so I'm quite proud of that.

If I was going to make a team out of one type, it'd probably be Electric. On the offense side, it's supereffective against two of the most common types (Water and Flying) and its signature status ailment is Paralysis. It also pairs well with Ice for hitting things that are otherwise resistant to Electric (other than Electric itself). Defensively, there aren't many tanks in the Electric department but it's immune to Paralysis itself, the Ground weakness can be mitigated somewhat with Magnet Rise, and you can generally just Volt Switch off any negative status buffs.
