I've been meaning to try out monotype and I've having some fun using an Ice team. What scares me is the Stealth Rock weakness :<

Dragon spam can surprise people, but in a Chompless world... I dont know.

Salamence
Dragonite
Hydreigon
Latios
Haxorus

Then ummm... Flygon? Latias could be ok. Kyurem is meh, Kingdra isnt bad if your willing to bank on your opponents using rain a lot.

My favorite is Fighting and i've run, successfully, the following team:

No setup Mix-Nape
Spore-Sub-Seed-Punch Breloom
Priority abuse Lucario
Anti-lead Machamp
Specially defensive Scrafty
Scarfed Medicham

Best team IMO is Normal-type but you troll your opponent with type shenanigans. A few pokemon off the top of my head:

Impostor Ditto: All EVs in HP and defenses. Use against Weather teams.
Smeargle: I DARE you to try Spore, Spider Web, Imprison, and Transform. Smashpassing is fine too.
Adaptability Porygon-Z: Offensive Conversion.
Trace Porygon2: Defensive Conversion. Not Conversion2, ordinary Conversion.
Scrappy Kangaskhan/Miltank: Ghostbusters.
Kecleon: Skill Swap Color Change + Shadow Sneak.
Sawsbuck: Hey look, a Grass-type that can use Camouflage+Nature Power to get a STAB Earthquake!
Normalize Delcatty: You've got to be pretty gutsy to use this. Toxic and Thunderwave go.
Lickylicky: Type chart victim or no, STAB Explosion is lulz.

Don't expect too many wins unless you are a GOD at prediction.

Hey look buddy, I'm an engineer and that means I solve problems.
OK, so I'm not an engineer yet, but I'm on my way.

Dark. I was also told Electric is pretty good, but I can't get a team to work yet

I'm taking swordplay classes, and I have a sword. But fear not, buy me an ice cream and I'll be nice with you.

Steel.

Except it doesn't work... Steel itself has a resistance against being poisoned.
For instance, even if you give a steel type the Ring Target, you can hit that Pokemon with moves like Sludge Bomb, but it will never be poisoned by it.
If you want to poison a steel type, you would have to Soak it first or change its type.

Similar to how Fire Pokemon cannot be burned.
