Miracle Eye (movement) · Zen headbutt (movement) · Heart seal (movement). When entering into battle against Psychic-type Pokémon, it's worth knowing what their weaknesses are. Psychics are weak against Bug, Ghost, and Dark-type Pokémon. Dark types are especially useful, since they are immune to psychic movements.
Its main strength is against the Fighting type. Psychic has a natural resistance against fighting, and fighting is incredibly weak for the psychic. Psychic also resists its own kind, and psychic attacks hit incredibly well against Poison. Attacks like Beetles are effective against attacks like Dark, Grass and Psyche.
Fire, flight and rock movement cause twice as much damage to insects like Caterpie. Some Pokémon come in two types, meaning they can be twice as weak or compensated for their strengths and weaknesses to take only normal damage. A psychic-type Pokémon is any Pokémon that specializes in certain moves that use psychic themes to damage or inflict status effects on an opponent. Psychic damage is not elemental, but Psychic-type Pokémon can also use elemental moves along with their psychic moves.
Since many Weed Pokémon were also Poison type, it wasn't a good idea to use Weed against Psychics either. Since at that time, the only types of Ghost were also part Venom, and the only other weakness of Psychic, Bug, was incredibly weak in itself, the Psychic type was incredibly dominated. Of course, this also means that it makes little sense to bring a Psychic Pokémon to fight another Psychic Pokémon. Fighting psychic Pokémon can be difficult because many of them are legendary Pokémon or hit with the same force.
Even though he takes super-effective damage from Psychic (since Gengar is partly Poison-type), Mega Gengar does so much damage that it doesn't matter. Psychics are supposed to be weak against ghost attacks, but wrongly, psychics were immune to them. The Dark type, along with the Steel type, was introduced in Generation II to balance itself with the Psychic type, making it immune to psychic attacks. The fraction of damage a psychic-type move will deal is shown: ½ means 50% damage (not very effective), 2 means 200% (super effective), etc.
Gardevoir is one of the most powerful Psychic and Fairy-type Pokémon in Pokémon Go today, with strong defense, powerful attack, and arsenal of moves. There are more Pokémon of this type than either of the other two due to the large number of marine creatures on which the species is based. Poison-type Pokémon are also vulnerable to psychic movement, so you might leave them inside the Pokeball when you're in battle. Psychic-type Pokémon are strong against Weed, Fighting, and Psychic Pokémon, while Colorless, Darkness, and Metal Pokémon can resist.
In addition, a bug in the game meant that Ghost-type moves had no effect on Psychic (although this only affected the low-powered Lick). Starting with Generation 6, there are 75 official Psychic-type Pokémon, making it the fifth most common type, and also slipping it into a category of rare types.
