Best Psychic Type Pokemon

The Top TenXW

1MewtwoMewtwo is a fictional creature from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. It was created by Dr. Fuji in an attempt to clone Mew.

Mewtwo is unstoppable what other Pokemon control Pokemon seriously he has his own Pokemon also he has the ability to take all Pokemon powers away that means no special abilities have you ever heard of the move struggle that's exactly what all will do with no abilities he is the only Pokemon to make Ash cry this Legendary Pokemon is the 1 and only man made Pokemon he has the knowledge and history of man kind and of all Pokemon and he literally reads and study's what Pokemon wants to go to a library he is a different breed of Pokemon look at the first Pokemon movie it's clear to see Mewtwo is the most powerful of all the only way you can beat him is time travel back in time to stop him from being created seriously good luck finding celebi

Laugh out loud how do people even get the idea espeon and alakazam could match up with mewtwo. Lets take out his new mega evolution (Y) which makes him the strongest Pokemon in the entire series, seconded only by his (X) mega evolution. so yeah take that fact out and plain mewtwo has base stats totaling 680! Espeon base stats fall at about 525 and alakazam 490... only reason he is on any top ten is because of nostalgia. Plus Metagross near bottom of the list has base stat of 600 topping both these I do not understand where people even get the basis for their votes sure the Pokemon are good but this is a top ten list not a top ten favorite list sigh

How do these stupid weak pokemon come before Mewtwo? Mewtwo could destroy all of them in his sleep! Vote for Mewtwo, the strongest pokemon ever!

Mewtwo is cool

2Alakazam

I am angered that, whenever I get on this website, most comments I see are simply saying, "Y you NO PICK ALAKAZAM! He's the BEST Y you ALL SO STUPID! "*Cough, The first three comments for Alakazam, *Cough* That's right, I'm talking to everybody. These pages are designed for people to say their opinion and BACK IT UP WITH EVIDENCE! Speaking of which, if you want to know what this "Mysterious, elusive 'Sigilyph' thing," is, play Generation 5. They really are good games. Now I know that some of you are Genwunners, and that's okay. However, every generation has it's charms. For example, Generation 2 allowed you to visit TWO regions, Johto and Kanto. Generation 3(Not counting the remakes) had two different teams, and many evolutions in game mechanics. Generation 4 was chock-full of postgame, and that was really fun to play. Generation 5 had fantastic plot and character development. Personally, I love Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald with all my heart, but if somebody likes ...more

I kinda would want to vote for gardevoir cause it is op and a unique fairy type. Count the mega evolution as well. Alakazam is probably better though and my choice of a psychic type. I used one in diamond and it teamed up very well with my Gengar. The combo is op. He is probably better cause he can mega evolve. He can counter dark types by learning either focus punch or drain punch. Psychic is an op move. Overall he is good and probably because he eats very healthy breakfasts. (I think the reason he has spoons)

Alakazam is nearly perfect in singleplayer, multiplayer, and post-game on just about any game you can catch it. Training Abra requires either switch and kill or an Exp. Share, but it's well worth it for about the best you can get. With 135 special attack, a BLISTERING 120 speed, and access to amazing moves such as STAB Psychic and Dazzling Gleam, Alakazam can sweep a whole team with little to no setup. If you are the kind to set up, however, Alakazam has access to Calm Mind and both screens to be able to hold off any attack for your setup. Special walls aren't a problem either, because Alakazam has access to all of the elemental punches! There are a few holes in Alakazam however, such as how it can barely hold up to a Tyranitar unless Focus Blast can hit. If you can get past a few of Alakazam's weaknesses, it can be one heck of a team member.

Alakazam may be a very strong special sweeper, but is one of the most squishiest I have seen so far... Also people that like him probably are those that leaved Pokemon franchise when gen.2 started...

3Espeon

Espeon teamed with a decent baton passer may in fact be the best Pokemon in the game with it's high spec. Att and speed if you set this up right you've got an incredibly powerful Pokemon that can't be switched out by anything other than dragon tail and is immune to toxic etcetera I mean with just two calm minds it can take out any none resistant Pokemon in one hit with an iron defense and a speed boost (1 turn from scolipede) baton passed then 2 turns of calm mind that makes 7 stages boosted making stored power a 160 base power move and then stab makes it 240 power and then your say 385 spec. Att (my espeons spec. Att) is doubled to 770 aswel. No joke I played ubers as a joke n by fluke managed to get espeon set up and took down all the team including a mega rayquaza a darkrai and both primal Pokemon (had to use dazzling gleam on darkrai)

Why is sigilyph in first place? Like come on now we all know that espeon is like the best psychic type ever with its high special attack and awesome speed so why is espeon only in seventh place come on vote for espeon

Espeon is awesome with his awesome special attack of 130 and say it has a nature like modest it will be able to surpass even Alakazam with his awesome speed and great ability. Whoever is an espeon hater doesn't know the meaning of AWESOME!

I think espeon is the best

4MewMew is one of the fictional species of creatures from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise created by Satoshi Tajiri.

Mew is really awesome! It can learn attacks to counter it's weaknesses, and it can learn OP moves too. Even if you don't want to use it in battle, you can teach it hm's to help you on your journey. And it's so cute watch the movie!

Mewtwo was created by Mew and also Mew has the DNA of every Pokemon allowing it to learn every move in the game. Mewtwo is effected by shadow ball but more resistance to dark, bug, psychic type weakness's etc. So therefore Mew is the best psychic Pokemon. And also has more understanding of the world around him than Mewtwo and any other Pokemon.

Mew can learn any move in the Pokemon universe. He should be higher up than mewtwo because he's awesome like that. Mew can learn a ghost or dark type move to destroy mewtwo. So vote mew

Mew can learn EVERY move why isn't this on the very top

5Gardevoir

I have a gardevior on my black. Got it as a ralts in the beginning from this cool ap as well as mudkip, charmander, and turtwig. It has a amazing special attack and special defense. Great Wall and sweeper. Decent speedy too. Mine is still in the low 30's but it knows confusion, magical leaf, double team (this move has saved me so many times) and teleport (for those lazy people who want poke center fast) it will learn much better moves soon, but it is still amazing. Vote for this pokemon.

I almost literally fell in love with this Pokemon when I first played. And its not just because of its looks. I mean sure it played a bit part, I mean come on, this is the female version of a British gentleman (that would mean a lady but honestly it wrecks way too hard for it be a mere lady). Its special stats are one of the best in the game and it can take couple of hits physically as well since trough all the games I played with Gardevoir it never fainted from 1 hit when at full health. Truth be told the worst of its stats are still decent or above average and IT LOOKS CLASSY.

The most elegant Pokémon in existence, it's cry is mesmerising and it's mega evolution is extraordinary, no wonder gardevoir was the final Pokemon in Pokemon x & y, it is extremely powerful and its special attack and defense are very high. I have loved it since the start, to me it is a priority to catch a ralts and evolve it. I also love the improved fairy type, I also love how it can learn thunderbolt (electric type) and energy ball (grass type) giving it a wide range of type attacks, making it almost super effective against anything. My grade our knows psychic, dazzling gleam, thunderbolt and energy ball.

I've Been Playing an Pokemon game, and I have mega gardevoir! Its always saved me from an trouble its really good and it counters Dragon types!

6Metagross

Metagross is the best pseudo-legendary as his type is better than others. Steel type always help. Its defense and attack are insane and can be a good wall. When it mega evolves it has a huge improvement in its speed and it turns into a destructive sweeper. This should definitely be much higher. Sorry for my grammer

It has the best non legendary base stat of all the psychic pokemon why its standing number 9?

This beast would wreck Mewtwo, Gardevoir,Alakazam and practically any other pure psychic. It has a bunch of resistances (4x for Psychic) and an insane attack and defense stay. Just give it any dark type move and it will cleave through any psychic Pokemon here. And I'm not even going to mention the mega...

This thing is a born killer plus it is awesome before it evolves

7Latios

Why is this Dragon/Psychic pokemon so low on the list, It should be number 2 after mewtwo.

Latinos should seriously be 2nd or third cause it has great attacks and a good defense. MY FAVOURITE Pokemon. LATIOS/LATIAS can beat alakazam or meta gross anytime VOTE IT FOR 2ND!

Fast, and a great sweeper, with great spec.definitely, THIS THING IS A BOSS.

I like burgers

8Gallade

Gallade, the noble Knight of the Pokemon universe, is one of the most unique Pokemon out there. its stats are excellent, with 115 Special Defense and a whopping 125 Attack. With great STAB in Zen Headbutt, Psycho Cut, and Close Combat, and the Special bulk to take one of Gengar's STAB Shadow Balls, along with the cool design, its a wonder Gallade hasn't topped the list yet.

Why is this not WAY higher in the list? Gallade is a FIGHTING PSYCHIC pokemon people, with AMAZING attack. It can take out SO much.

Gallade should be number one everyone! His psychic secondary type cancels out his fighting type weakness. Best moves to know: Hypnosis, psychic, close combat, and aura sphere. if you can add a fifth move, leaf-blade will be good also.

Gallade is amazing and the Physical Psychic Pokemon

9Lugia

He is based on one of the Creation Gods (the others being Arceus and Ho-oh) in Shinto mythology. If you are not convinced yet...check out the Silver tower and the Gold Tower that they are actual buildings in Kyoto dedicated to those Gods (dragon/male/silver), (phoenix/female/gold).Also the silver tower was burned in the past but was reconstructed...guess what in the game there's a burned tower, coincidence? I think not. Also for those who think that Lugia can reproduce. HE CANNOT. He is unique just like every other big legend. Stay out of the anime that no one should take seriously. Also, he can easily outclass Mewtwo...but I guess everyone goes for the classic choice.

Seriously? 27? Why is overrated Espeon Number 1? Lugia is definitely the best psychic Pokemon here (And its below Abra. Its like these people do not know Lugia exists. ) Not only is Lugia the RULER OF THE SEA, she can kick butt with not only her psychic moves, but water moves too. Plus, it's a LEGENDARY Pokemon WHO CAN REPRODUCE. There are more than 1 Lugia.

Shadow form modest nature Aero blast hurricane psychic and recovery. come on its flying and Every time he flaps his Wings he creates a 40 day storm that's better than Entai. Plus with all this he becomes a BADASS beast

Lugia's not that good, 90 Attack and Special Attack? - noo7na7

10Deoxys

Okay, whoever posted the card thing, this is about the game, not the card game, if there's a top psychic type Pokemon card thing, then feel free to comment there

Deoxys EX is the most terrifying psychic type Pokemon because of helix force. Helix force does 30 damage plus 30 more damage for each energy attached to the opponents Pokemon. So automatically Mewtwo EX's attack X Ball does at least 10 less damage than Helix force and does more and more increasing by 10 damage over Mewtwo EX's X Ball. Also Deoxys EX is one of the only Pokemon that can take down a Mega Charizard EX in one strike if it beats it to the punch. Also Deoxys EX has the ability Power Connect that increases team Plasma attacks by 10 damage for each team plasma Pokemon. I recommend teaming Deoxys EX with Xerneas EX and putting Deoxys on the bench until the opponent has a powerful Pokemon that uses lots of energy such as Zekrom EX.

Deoxys is a killer psychic type and very strong. Could probably crush mewtwo

In my opinion DEOXYS is the ultimate psychic type pokemon.

11Starmie

Been using since gen 1. No complaints here. Just praise. Still have one on my party on x and as

Starmie is not just my favorite water/psychic type but is my favorite Pokemon in general, even took the time to get myself a shiny one with 5 ivs modest nature and natural cure, now with that out of the way, decent all around bulk, wide movepool, great special attack and speed whats not to like.

Starmie = weak starmie is a weak Pokemon

You stupid people how can you imagine that alakazam or Mewtwo is best psy Pokemon starmie is the strong and best psychic Pokemon GO STARMIE YOU ARE BEST FOR ME

12Victini

Victini is the cutest Pokemon I ever seen. I think he is one of the top ten cutest. He is also is one of the strongest.

Victini can't lose. No, I'm serious it's the victory Pokemon plus it's adorable

Although he is cute, he is quite the attacker!

It is a very cute pokemon

13Arceus

His pretty much god come on war of time anyone created giratina my second favorite ghost look at the odds every one vs god who wins god he would be able to war of time yo to yo mamma

Technically, since you didn't specify he had the plate, he's normal type.

I think arceus should first and mewtwo will be second

Should be number 1

14Wobbuffet

Everyone just hates this Pokemon because it can learn only up to seven moves. But it is one of the most perfect Pokemon created - Encore, Destiny bond, counter, and mirror coat is just a power move set! I have completed the elite four and champion and one of my Pokemon was wobbuffet, and he contributed a lot in battles!

I feel this Pokemon is underrated because it looks funny and has few moves. However, those 7 moves when used together make this thing a huge threat and you can defeat almost anything with it if your using it right.

It should be on rank 1. No one can attack on him because of it's counter and mirror coat attack. Amazingly he is most powerful in the world in Pokemon.

I say it is the worst physic on here

15Sigilyph

Why doesn't this guy evolve from unown it would put unown to good use

You wanna know how much I love Sigilyph? I'd rather have him than Lugia, a LEGENDARY with the same typing.

Best Pokemon with cosmic power spam+ psycho shift (flame orb)+ stored power and roost. 1 word if you do all these things.. OP

16Abra

"Oh look! An Abra, I'm gonna catch it! "... Abra used teleport. "... MOTHERF--!

The most annoying wild Pokemon encounter ever...abra

Oh my goodness!

17Latias

This thing is a tank. It's bulky enough to take some hits if it doesn't ohko it's opponents (which doesn't really happen. It usually does). Great move pool and helped me grab the Battle Symbols at the frontier

It even mega evolves so why is this so low!

It should be right after Latios

Why is latias so far below latios? It's mega is better
