Why are monotype teams suddenly so popular?

They were never this popular back in Gens 1-4. It's a dumb fad, imo.

It's just kinda dumb. Why would you pigeon-hole yourself like that?

Suddenly? I've been using mono-type teams since the very beginning of Gen 5 and I've seen countless others using them since then as well. This may seem all of a sudden to you, but I didn't play competitively until Gen 5, so I guess my viewpoint is a little different than yours.

Also, mono-type is definitely not a fad. It takes a lot more skill to use than the standard weather teams you see everywhere. It's also a lot more fun because it adds a lot of variety to the current OU metagame.
