Best Ghost and Psychic Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Gengar Gengar Gengar, known in Japan as Gengar, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

BEST POKEMON EVER. People think haunter is better. Those people are wrong. Here's what sets gengar apart: he is the shadow pokemon. He can morph his form to match anyone's shadow and form, though still retaining his color and. AWESOME. FACE. And think of all the times you've been paranoid after reading a scary story, and your convinced there are monsters in the dark. In the pokemon world, there is. GENGAR IS HIDING IN THE SHADOWS.

Here is all the things he can do, according o bulbapedia:


Gengar is so awesome that He decided he didn't want to be clefables shadow anymore, so he became a Pokemon true story.

He is very awesome looking, and kind of scary too, just as any ghost should be, and they have an excellent moveset. I find Gengar very useful for catching other Pokemon too because they can learn Mean Look. Because Gengar is a ghost type, most normal and fighting moves won't affect it and another added bonus is since Gengar is also part poison type it can learn poison moves. I love inflicting status problems on opponents.

Not sure if is a physic and ghost and hooper is better because it's a legandary I think and this pokemon looks cool but I admit hooper should be top.Still voting because it looks cool

2 Mewtwo Mewtwo Mewtwo 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.

Even though Mewtwo is a clone and scientifically created, he is still one of the best pokemon. I mean, Mewtwo was in one of the few movies that doesn't have random legendaries fighting because "someone invaded their territory" or trash like that. He is one of the original pokemon, which are the best. And Mewtwo has to deal with being created by an experiment. If I had to deal with that, I'd probably go crazy. Well Mewtwo did, technically, go crazy, but he managed to regain his sanity. Plus, MEWTWO IS AWESOME!

Only the coolest, most powerful Pokemon ever until the series decided to screw things up and throw in a bunch of gods and uber legendaries. He was smart enough to create a bunch of Pokemon using old damaged equipment he rebuilt, and he could generate a massive storm by moving his hand! He could turn back time ^^/or erase all his work, wipe everyone's memories, and not only transport everyone else away, he flies all of his Pokemon away too! The only reason he is not the king of all Pokemon (figuratively) is because of Arceus and the fact that they downgraded Mewtwo in the second movie with him.

Mewtwo is probably the most powerful pokemon IN GAME, as its mega evolutions along with mega rayquaza have the highest total stats. Even if Mewtwo is probably the most powerful its design is kind of boring which kind of explains why he is on number 2, I mean Gengar has an awesome design but mewtwo's one is just... boring which as I said is why he is not in front of Gengar

Mewto is the best ghost pokemon EVERR

3 Alakazam Alakazam Alakazam was first shown in game freaks Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is a pure psychic type. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human like Pokemon. It has high special attack more.

Why does everyone choose legendaries? Those things are just cheap and are for people who don't know how to build and raise a good party. I would choose Alakazam over any legendary. Put the enemy to sleep, repeatedly use calm mind and, then attack with psychic or dream eater. Unstoppable move combo right there. If your up against a dark type, just use focus blast. Not to mention the unbeatable speed.

Alakazam can practically ruin your day if you don't have a dark or bug type. I know this because I have faced him and used him, and his psychic attacks wreck you.

My favorite Pokemon of all time, when I taught him focus blast he was unstoppable! Take him over Mewtwo any day those are for players who can't really play Pokemon so they use legandaries

Alakazam has some serious benefits and it's mega evolution is awesome

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

First off, Mew was the original Pokemon God. Arceus was merely added to keep the story going. Also, Gengar is weak to Psychic attacks given the fact he is part poison and Ghost aren't resistant to psychic moves in any way, it's just that Ghost moves are strong against Psychic types. Mew also can Learn just about any move there is, Mew is the #1 choice on this list.

tis pink cute adorable and powerful psychic pokemon is the coolest becuz it can changeit form to any pokemon he want to be,,,, he can be a arceus, lucario, empoleon, infernape, torterra, AND MANY MORE


- blueguy120

Come on, I always knew that Mew is more powerful than Mewtwo and adorable. I fell in love with Mew when I watched the movie. Mew is AWESOME. Powerful and cute. And it's playful and sweet. It has one the most adorable laughs ever and how is stupid metagross before MEW!? I loved how it came in floating in a bubble in Mewtwo's mansion or whatever it was.

So cute and powerful � -

5 Metagross Metagross Metagross, known in Japan as Metagross, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Being a Steel-type, Metagross is weak to very few types. It's a pseudo-legendary, too, making it quite a powerful battler is used properly. And speaking of types, Metagross handles itself well with Magnet Rise, making it immune to Ground-type attacks, and Earthquake, which is useful against Fire-types and Ground/Rock Pokemon. Out of all the pseudo-legendaries, Metagross is the most versatile in my eyes.

Meta gross every time, beast! Has one of the highest attack stats of all non legendary pokemon. Highest of all steel and psychic. Amazing typing, many resistances and few weaknesses. Why isn't this no. 1?

Shew, hard to decide, love gallade and lugia but Metagross is king, he IS the only non-dragon pseudo legendary, sure gengar is tough but he looks like a demented marshmallow...

Y is this a 7%? at least 101%

6 Espeon Espeon

This is the cutest pokemon that have ever seen. Plus it is really powerful when you train it correctly.

BEST Pokemon EVER! I have a level 60 and it is incredible. we have fought many battles together and she has never let me down. she took out the psychic, fighting and ghost types (using shadow ball) elites in black two with ease. Also, I have only lost to my friend once with espeon on my team (he uses a level 62 gengar and a level 57 zoroark). - espeon567

Better thought-out than the others. Once you get past level 45 or so, it really becomes a beast. Worth training.

7 Gallade Gallade Gallade, known in Japan as Erureido, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Gallade Because it is one of those Pokemon that can pack a punch with 125 base attack and has solid special defense, at around 110-115? It can run a great variety of sets from choice banded to bulk up. It's one of the most underrated Pokemon.

Gallade is my fave poke, I always run him in-game if I can and I get really disappointed when I can't, I t=run leaf blade, night slash, close combat and psycho cut with choice band, its awesome coverage!

Gallade is a really good battler because it has psychic and fighting so psychic isn't so effective and it has beast speed attack and special attack all rock so much it's should be in the top 3!

I love gallade

8 Lugia Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Lugia can destroy Gengar and Mewtwo.

It sleeps in a deep-sea trench. If it flaps its wings, it is said to cause a 40-day storm. (Diamond)

You could argue that Ho-Oh can defeat Lugia, but the thing is, they would not fight. Lugia leads the Legendary Bird Trio while Ho-Oh leads the Legendary beasts. The two unimaginably powerful pokemon form the Tower Duo and defeat Mewtwo together.

This majestic pokemon is not just beautiful and caring its the pokemon god and the strongest one out there - lugia10158

is there really a reason to say no to this pokemon (i don't think so my friend) lugia is beast and legend 4-ever and ever more

9 Haunter Haunter Haunter, known in Japan as Ghost, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Haunter is very creepy and awesome looking!
Haunter is my favourite ghost pokemon.

Haunter is also my favorite Pokemon of all time. He may not be the strongest but he's still my favorite since Pokemon blue till today.

Haunter is amazingly cute and strong and also if you teach it shadow force,
Shadow ball, smog, and night shade it is! !

It can defeat gengar

10 Mr. Mime Mr. Mime

He always makes me smile. So funny and rare. I love him! Whenever I play pokepark he is real nice and funny

He is a amazing defending psychic type! Is beast. To me, he is my favorite psychic/fairy type!

He is awesome! I love his move set!

Haha.. I know he's the best after I fought him for the first time...

The Contenders

11 Dusknoir Dusknoir

Good defense and pretty good attack. Could have very good potential if you are good. He is AWESOME. Not to mention his awesome loks and name. I bet mine could beat ALL of your choices. If you are smart then choose Dusknoir.

Aside from pretty good moves, stats, and awesome design, might I add how awesome a character he is in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time/Darkness/Sky? For this reason, Dusknoir deserves a spot on this list, and a high one at that.

My favorite ghost type pokemon!

Wish I had a dusknoir...

12 Drifloon

Drifloon isn't good, alakazam is

Totes he's so amazing

Come on Drifloon rules it could K.O anyone on this list

13 Hypno Hypno

Come on guys, this is Hypno we're talking about - he's well-educated, and will trump all these fools in a poké-spelling bee any day! Plus, he's not only a psychic genius, but he's practically part-conman with his hypnotic coin-on-string trick. With it he could trick even the most battle wise trainer into forfeiting!

Everybody's gotta love creepy yellow pervert who kidnaps kiddies...

14 Gardevoir Gardevoir Gardevoir is a third-generation Pokémon species originally introduced as a Psychic type creature in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Gardevoir has HIGH special attack and special defense is awesomely versatile! I used her in emerald and platinum and she stole the spotlight! Best non legendary psychic type Pokemon :-)

This pokemon is greatly powerful. It's abilities are: Shadow Ball, Luster Purge, Psychic and Psybeam. Which makes this pokemon very powerful

My Gardevoir kicks ass and takes names. I soloed the champion in emerald with her.

Love It.
High Special attack.. High Special defense.. Init. Wow

15 Jynx Jynx

Jynx is overall my favorite Pokemon, so majestic and awesome and Fierce! - SexySiren666

16 Giratina Giratina Giratina is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. Created by Ken Sugimori, Giratina first appeared in the video games Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, but gained prominence in the sister game, Pokémon Platinum, which it was made the mascot of.

It's Quick, never misses has the best ghost move: Shadow Force In fact it was so Good that they made a game about it: Pokemon Platinum It looks amazing and learns the best moves (Draco Meteor, Hyper Beam, Earth Power)
And the combination of ghost and dragon makes it Immortal it's HP can go to astounding lengths, How is Chandelure, Mr Mine, Gengar... Above him?

Come on! Nobody Else thinks that a combination between a dragon and a ghost is really cool? If anyone here has actually played a giratina you would realize that a blend between dragon and ghost goes together very smoothly.

Super duper strong and is one of my best Pokemon

17 Dusclops

Dusclops is the best. He even evolves cool.

18 Deoxys Deoxys Deoxys is a fictional species of Pokémon from Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Deoxys has four forms, Speed form, Defence form, Attack form, and finally Normal form. Deoxys normally have fights with Rayquaza since they both live in space right outside Earth.

Deoxys is one of the most versatile Pokemon there is. If you're into competitive battling, you can switch strategies by switching Deoxys' forme. Deoxys is the Pokemon with the highest attack/sp. Atk. When in Attack Forme, and has the highest base speed in Speed Forme. It's no slouch in defense/sp. Definitely. Either, having the highest base definitely stats of all psychic types. Depending on the trainer, Deoxys could easily be a tank or a sweeper.

He should be higher he so powerful in smash bros - MEGAMANZEROSTRIDER

Deoxys is a god forsaken normal type. Why in hell is it on this list?

19 Mismagius Mismagius

Mismagius is quite fast and has a decent movepool that can totally sweep with Calm Mind or Nasty Plot. She's got decent Special Attack and Special defense as well.

The for the info

This Pokemon have a great Speed and good Sp. Attack. I like the moveset.


20 Darkrai Darkrai Darkrai is a legendary Pokemon developed by Game Freak. The only way to get this Pokemon was through two events, only one in the United States.

I think you should vote for DARKRAI.
Its the best dark type pokemon.
In sinnoh league it won the finals itself. It can defeat any pokemon in a single move. It looks dangerous and its attacks are of great damage.

In pokemon duel I was given a darkrai ex free (not kidding) and it best next to my bulbasaur in it (bulbasaur mostly gets sleep power or poison power making it op)

A VERy good and perfect Pokemon yet, it can take any Pokemon when trained perfectly, can even beat legendary Pokemons!

Hey come on gys can't you figure out which is the best pokemon? it's the darkest legendry pokemon darkrai

21 Kadabra

Let's face it.. All the Pokemon you guys have listed are great... But Kadabra is just as good as Alakazam in my opinion. This is because in the games you have to trade kadabra just so he will evolve and the only thing that changes is his attack speed. He gets over powered attacks at lv 20 like confusion. And if he gets poisoned, burnt, confused, or put to sleep his synchronize makes the enemy Pokemon affected as well. And that's why I think Kadabra is one of the top 10 best Pokemon!

22 Metang Metang

This is steel - 1507563

23 Chandelure Chandelure

It doesn't just hit you with flamethrower, it burns your soul with it. It has a very high special attack, more than any starter or other normal pokemon. Plus, they look absolutely adorable.

It is a chandelier, for crying out loud! Super cute and really good attacks, if you evolve it at the right time.

It's got an amazing, unique type combination, and it has a really cool design. Chandelure sports a pretty awesome movepool as well.

Even it's design is so badass, which pokémon has blue and purple fires coming out of it (except Mega Charizard X :p). I think it should be higher then this.

25 Exeggutor Exeggutor

This Pokemon is good. It is my two favorite types. It is grass so it is good against water types but bad against fire types.It is psychic so it is good against fighting and poison types but weak against bug ghost and dark types. Even though it has some bad weaknesses it still has good attack.

The pokemon is very strong

26 Latios Latios Latios, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.
27 Xatu Xatu

Xatu is a great Phsychic Pokemon. Let me explain:

-Magic Bouce: If the foe uses as Status-affecting move on Xatu, it'll 'bounce back'. So, if the foe uses Hypnosis on Xatu, the foe will fall alseep instead of Xatu.
- Early Bird: If Xatu is put to sleep, it will wake up way faster during battle.
- Sychronize: If Xatu falls asleep, the foe will as well. It passes on status problems.

- Xatu's Miracle Eye takes away Dark Type Pokemon's immunity to Psychic moves.
- Xatu learns a couple Ghost moves, and everything else is Psychic/Special Attacks.
- Don't underestimate the status moves Xatu learns! They're handy in battle.
- Power and Guard Swap are great when used wisely.
- Wish is a great move that restores HP.

- Xatu learns Dark, Ice, Normal, Flying, Psychic and Steel type moves.
- Roost is a great move that restores health.
- FeatherDance is great with raising stats.
- Sucker Punch moves first and is ...more

28 Wobbuffet Wobbuffet

Can be a nightmare if you use him right. - Faceplam101


It's a total beast if you use it right. All it needs is hp with mirror coat, counter, safegard, and destiny bond. I took town mega charazard x and umbreon with ease.

29 Hoopa Hoopa Hoopa, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It walls Dark and Ghost moves like nobody's business! Why come is Hoopa NOT on this list?

Hoopa is very strong why should it be 43

A ghost and psychic Pokemon what's not to like

Number 1

30 Shuppet Shuppet

31 Slowbro Slowbro
32 Spiritomb Spiritomb

Come on guys just look at it!
Ghost/dark dual type!
It's not weak against anything.
Plus pretty creepy looking for a ghost type

33 Reuniclus

Its speed leaves something to be desire, but with Trick Room, this thing is a beast. Stat-wise, its special attack is massive, and is quite bulky with its high HP. Its defenses are quite decent, so it can take a hit or two whilst setting up Trick Room. Definitely worth considering if you're looking for a good Psychic type in BW.

Come on lets vote its one of my best and its cool and powerful but also cute.

Its The Best Of All Unova Pokemon

34 Dragonite Dragonite Dragonite is a character from the Pokémon franchise by Nintendo. It is a dragon and flying type Pokémon created in the first generation of Pokémon. It is a Pseudo Legendary Pokémon.

Dragonite is a great pokemon and all, but it is adragon/flying type. NOT PSYCHIC. It should not be on this list.

35 Banette Banette

Oh my little Banette.. :-P
I love ghost pokemon, and I think he is one of the best.
Shuppet is also cool, but Banette is just cooler!

My favorite Pokemon also

36 Bronzong Bronzong

Bronzong is awesome mine has extrasensory shadow ball earthquake and hyper beam

I want one but I can't find one.:-(

What Bronzong Has No Weaknesses It Has Levitate Why? Is Ground Super Effective And Has An Abillity That Makes Fire Type Moves 1x

ITS AN EPIC Pokemon! It should AT LEAST be in the top 20!

37 Latias Latias Latias, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


38 Arceus (Scary Plate) Arceus (Scary Plate) Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

With this plate, Arceus could just use judgement and not be affected by psychic types and have resistance to ghost so it will easily be the winner of any list of powerful pokemon

Absolute BEAST, rips every team apart!

This Pokemon shouldn't be in any list its simply unfair and against the point of a list if you use a Pokemon god... Easily deoxys

39 Starmie Starmie

The most versatile psychic Pokemon.

My stay is the best he is level 100

40 Ralts Ralts

When my little ralts evolved to kirlia to gardevoir, I was amazed with her being a sp. Wall and sp. Sweeper, how is Ralts not under gardevoir, hmm lets see gardevoirs perks,1 a true beauty,2 a wall and a sweeper, decent speed, finally she stole the spotlight, was the best psychic of her time, and finally, she soloed 4 games with only 1 other pokemon, who was it, it was RALTS! So why can't ralts be below her evolve form

41 Caterpie Caterpie

Not a ghost psychic Pokémon - 1507563

42 Shadow Lugia

A bad version of lugia

43 Solgaleo Solgaleo Solgaleo is a dual Psychic/Steel Legendary Pokèmon introduced in Generation VII. It evolves from Cosmoem when leveled up in Pokemon Sun starting at level 53.It is one of Cosmog's final forms,the other being Lunala. Solgaleo takes a special form called the Radiant Sun phase when it uses Sunsteel strikes. more.

It be beast

44 Kirlia Kirlia

Per evolution of gardevoir I know she's not that strong but she is a trusted companion and a graceful dancer and her attacks are phycic confusion magical leaf a quick attack

Kirlia is not so bad when it comes to confusing a Pokemon but when I used her in emarld her attack was decent and her defense is the best

Ok I know she ant that srong but just train her really good and I thought to put her up here to see if anything good happends. So go kirlia

45 Victini Victini

While as a Psychic type I like Espeon more, why not Victini? Aside from it's appearence, it's super cute and has access to the strongest fire type move: V-create and in Trick Room, can take out half of your opponent!

46 Zigzagoon Zigzagoon
47 Yveltal Yveltal Yveltal is a fictional creature in the Pokemon Franchise. Introduced in the 6th gen, Yveltal is a legendary Dark/Flying type Pokemon, and is the mascot of Pokemon Y.
