What is the best and worst mono-type?

I'd say Ice is the worst mono type. Sure its powerful, but it doesn't have particularly strong attacks, and its so horrible defensively that it might not even get a chance to attack.

Dragon's the best, but that's sort of the point of the type.

I'd say Water's 2nd best.

Dragon is the best.

Ice is pretty awful. Bug, too. Bug is great when paired with stuff though.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Outside of being the worst defensive type, Ice is decent offensively, and has a useful SE against Dragons. Not to mention it's somewhat the most common 4x weakness, due to the large number of dragons.
I'd say the worst type is Poison. It doesn't get SE on almost anything, and doesn't seem to have any notable resistances outside of Fighting.
Dragon is a rather good type, having a nice amount of resistances, and being only resisted by Steel, BUT, Dragon is only SE against Dragon, which is somewhat of a downside.

Water has wonderful coverage. Dragon is, on average, a fairly powerful type as well (as you said, that's kind of the point.)

Ice seems like a fragile type, which is fitting.

Poison and Psychic are pretty crappy types.

Psychic hits pretty damn hard. Even after Gen 1 stopped it from being OP. Its not hit for SE by any common attacking type. Its only resisted by steel and itself, and it hits arguably the best attacking type in the game for SE damage.

Not to mention Magic Guard and Magic Bounce.

Those are abilities some psychic Pokemon have, nothing to do with psychic typing.

It's like saying psychic is a fantastic typing because Mewtwo exists.

If a base 200 Attack 200 Speed Poison Pokemon existed, it wouldn't make Poison type itself great, it would just mean that Pokemon is OP.

Poison is pretty underrated.
