Best Psychic Type Pokemon
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
Mewtwo used to be an overpowered Pokemon, but now with 2 mega forms, it's EXTREMELY overpowered. I once knocked out an intire team with level. 100 mega Mewtwo Y and psystrike. Mewtwos sig move psystrike is sooo powerful! Not only does it have very high base power, more pp than most legendary moves, but it also uses defense instead of special defense! It's very useful for knocking out opponents with low defense. Now with TWO MEGAS you can choose what sort of an attacker you want! If you like SpA go Mewtwo Y, and it you Atk go Mewtwo X! Mewtwo should stay #1 on this list, and in my opinion is the best Pokemon currently in existence.
Despite his epic design, this guy is the worlds most powerful Pokemon. With 680 stat and mega stat 780 he is completely the best. Get out of here arceus cause he just stole you position as number 1. Plus there is a rumor going around that Mewtwo was redesigned to be the creator of game freaks cat. Anyway vote Mewtwo!
Yeah baby! Mewtwo King! it totally deserves it, after all it has been though. mostly after getting stabbed by deoxey... I could explain how awesome mewtwo is forever but my hands hurt when I type so bye.
Absolutely strong sweeper and attacker under most circumstances due to its high base Sp. Atk and Speed as well as having good abilities with or without its hidden.
Has access to moves of a number of different typing, allowing it to even hit its own weaknesses extremely hard, possibly even putting them down before they can even get a swing at it.
Also fantastic as a setup pokemon with baton pass and calm mind, as well as being able to shut down opponent's special attack setups with power swap. With so much utility on a pokemon as elegantly designed as Espeon, what's not to love? (Other than its shiny, but we don't talk about that.)
Although I love umbreon more, espeon is just so cute and cool. It has amazing SPA and SPE which make it a sweeper. The only reason why I like umbreon more is cause of espeon's shiny. It isn't that bad but... It doesn't feel right. Like I would've wanted an orange or purple shiny espeon. Aside from that, ITS AMAZING!
Espeon shouldn't be higher than Metagross or Gardevoir, don't get me wrong it is an awesome pokemon and if Gardevoir didn't have a mega I would say their about equal
Here is how the ist should go:
then you can sprinkle the other legendaries in there, there not has important since their legendaries and we all know there good the the exception of a few questionable legends.
Espeon is elegant, graceful, and powerful! From a strategic standpoint, she has killer special attack and speed, making her a great but frail sweeper. Plus, with her dream world ability Magic Bounce, she is a fantastic anti-lead! Espeon deserves more love!
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.
Uurgh. So perfect.
Amazing special attack. Now psychic and fairy so it can take down dragon type with moonblast and fairy poison type weakness is canceled out due to psychic type being good against poison. In addition the fairy type is resistant to bug and dark rendering Gardevoir better in defense.
It can learn a range of abilities such as moonblast, shadow ball, thunderbolt, psychic, recover, light screen, barrier etc. just loads of moves are available. I also believe that the pokedex says it can create a black hole to protect its trainer.
It may not be the fastest, but trick room can change that. Slower Pokemon become faster with it.
Finally, it has two useful abilities. Trace copies the foes ability so a Pokemon with the ability wonder guard could be traced and this would allow Gardevoir to be immune to direct damage moves that are not super effective.
The other ability is synchronise. This means that if a status condition such as sleep or paralysis is afflicted ...more
You see gardevoir is according to me the best, better than Alakazam some might say espeon is better but gardevoir or rather mega gardevoir. Also gardevoir has two types psychic and fairy whereas alakazam only psychic. in all my games I have one gardevoir because her fairy type helps me against dragon type. And as a matter of fact I like gardevoir's mega form better in looks than alakazam and espeon does not have a mega form hence gardevoir should be second.
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.
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)
''5 SPOONS! ''
Really Alakazam is THE icon of psychic type Pokemon. Although he has a poor defense and not really great hp, he has an amazing amount of speed and special attack (as mega) which makes him a very good sweeper, also he is capable of covering most of his weaknesses by a good attack-setup (for example dazzling gleam/ focus blast for dark types).
With a good strategy this bearded old man can become even more powerful, however it needs a bit of thinking to get all the spoons to work properly.
Abra Kadabra Alakazam!
And like MAGIC any opponent before it is DEAD.
Espeon? The predictable, replaceable... Thing that somehow is an Eeveelution... How can Alakazam lose to ESPEON!?
I am genuinely annoyed to find an Espeon sitting on Alakazam!
Alakazam is a record breaker for having one of the highest sp. Attack of ALL Pokemon>>>745!
He's a better sweeper than INFERNAPE>>>>Infernape was my first Pokemon-I have a massive soft spot for it and so saying that alakazam is better a sweeper than it is saying something!
The original super physic type is below an Espeon.
Come on people how can this on no. 5 it deserves number 1 because it can defeat top three very easily and I will tell you how.
You need to get some medicines like proteins, Carbos, etc to raise its special attack and special defense. Then give it an item that raises special attack and attack states. Then teach it overheat, shadow ball, nasty plot and focus blast. If you want to finish mewtwo use nasty plot then shadow ball finish. If you want to defeat any bug Pokemon how about overheat. If dark type comes in your way you have focus blast and if ghost comes use nasty plot then shadow ball again. You all know that overheat fells our special attack harshly so if we uses nasty plot three times you can use overheat three times with great power. If your hp is low use explosion. Mew is the best..
Mew is a good pokémon personally my favourite because he is small which makes him a harder target to hit. As for Mewtwo, Mewtwo is big and an easy target to hit.
Mew can also learn over powered moves, such as substitute for instance. Mewtwo was also created AFTER Mew. So its said that mew is more 'think-wise" by that I mean he thinks before his actions.
Mewtwo was being created and was said to have broken out, Therefore he was not fully generated. Mostly because it is said to not have a warm heart. I lovr phychic Pokemon out of all the types. But mew just gets to me.
Mew was the first 'man developed' Pokemon. So vote for him if you agree.
Look, it's Pokemon logic, Mewtwo was created by Mew, so no Mew means no Mewtwo! So that means Mew is Mewtwo's father/mother! You know there used to be Mews all around Earth when the world was created, but then those other Mews took shape of another Pokemon. Mew is the only Mew left. Mew can transform into anything! And can LEARN any move! Mew is basically the better version of Ditto...
If my memory serves me right, he was the one that actually defeated Mewtwo. It may not have the highest base stats of all the pokemon, but it can learn any move which no other pokemon can. It's the ancestor of all the pokemon. Not only the strongest psychic type, but also one of the strongest pokemon out there. Also, it looks really cute and adorable. Just saying.
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
Are you kidding me? I can see how Mewtwo takes 1st place but who doesn't want a sweeper with moves like Meteor Mash? Sure it's speed is probably it's downfall but then you can just clobber your opponent after it's attack falls short to Metagross' amazing defensive stats!
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...
I just lost all confidence in this website, I can understand that mew and Mewtwo top this list but metagross should definitely be 3rd. I mean he is a psuedo legendary Pokemon. He has awe inspiring defense which is alakazam main weakness and his psychic power is amazing
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 literally OP. It has four forms and they are all OP. Speed form makes Deoxys one of the fastest pokemon in the world, that means Choice Scarf Trick or Hazard Set up. Deoxys Attack is SO good, LOOK at Deoxys-A's stats, MASSIVE Attack and SpA makes Deoxys-A a decent sweeper. Deoxys-D is just a massive tank that resists some damage, that means Deoxys-D can just sweep with Toxic
Deoxy's signature move Psycho Boost normally OHKOes an opponent!
I mean, look at Deoxy's movepool as well! That's what makes him so great!
How is deoxys number 10?! It is awesomer than mewtwo, alakazam and espeon by far. It has a way awesomer name and design than any of them. It also has multiple forms, allowing it to serve any role. Sweeper? Tank? Deoxys can fit any of these roles. It's signature move, Psycho boost is the most powerful psychic type move. Deoxys can also regenerate itself. It also has a huge move pool, being able to learn psychic, dark, fighting, ice, and who-knows what other type moves. Deoxys could kick mewtwo and mews butts. MEWTWO IS OVERRATED! My deoxys OHKOed a mega blaziken with psycho boost. It also swept a golem and gengar in a row, both OHKOes. It also sept a crawdaunt at a type disadvanage.
Why is thing much lower than espe? True, that guy wrecked a team with it, but in most cases a regular pokemon like weavile pr hydreigon can beat. Plus, this guys huge stays, usefulness in any situation, and the fact it came to the earth in a world ending meteor says sonething.
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, it's a wonder Gallade hasn't topped the list yet.
Yeah, yeah Mewtwo has telekinetic powers, but does he have swords for elbows? NO! Gallade can absolutely knock out every other psychic type Pokemon if you teach him Night slash. With his high attack stat, he would knock out Mewtwo any day!
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.
One of the best pokemon in my opinion because it has massive attack and it is well rounded in the other stats making it a perfect team member. It can learn many physical moves to wipe out all sorts of pokemon. attacks like night slash and leaf blade can throw your opponent a curve ball. As a bonus, when it mega evolves it gets a cape, even more awesome.
Latias was competitively better than Latios non-mega, but Mega Latios was better than Latias in mega form. I studied their stats and this was the result. Also, Latios' Luster Purge and Latias' Mist Ball was perfect in battle dude I love the Eon Duk
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!
My best dragon type is my precious Lapis Lazuli. I got my Latios with Chansey eggs or Audino eggs(with an indirect way) and everyone in PBB wants my Latios now. I cannot believe it's power. Intelligent, elegant, powerful and patience are words that describes Latios. I think it shoulb be 2nd or 3rd
Actually better than latias because if soul dew. Very strong attacker, and is very good with or without the mega, allowing you to mega evolve different pokemon. Very good.
Sorry, but latios should be number one on this list, in my opinion latios is the best thing that happened to pokemon. This is for two reasons 1 the weaknesses and strengths. It is weak to fairy, dragon, ice, and dark and strong to dragon, fighting and other common types. And reason 2: IT'S MY FAVORITE POKEMON!
That's about right for Lati (o/a) S. They both have alright stats and attacks, but I'd consider them more Dragon type than Psychic.
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.
Wow. Lucia is the third best Pokemon of all time, actually. When measuring his stats (atk, definitely, spd, and stamina) Lugia is ranked third to Arceus (who is basically the 'God' of Pokemon) and Mewtwo (who was made in a scientific experiment. Also, he's awesome.
How is it so low, it should be second (Mewtwo first), it has a total stat of 680, multiscale is a great ability and very good combined with Lugia's bulky ness and roost. It can also aeroblast and can lean psycho boost through event. How is it so low.
One of my favorite legendaries. Defensive stats are incredible. The cover Pokemon of my favorite Pokemon game (soul silver), would kick Ho-Oh's ass no offense. Definitely worthy member of any team.
Bruh, have you not seen the movie? He's like a fairy god parent mixed with a metagross! Come on! Then his ability allows for iron head to be the most annoying/ hilarious move ever! Don't even think for a second Jirachi she be in 13th with starmie! Jirachi should be in the top 8.
Your doomed. It is the ultimate flinch master, and can easily lower your stats thanks to it's ability. It can grant any wish, and if someone wished for jirachi to have, say 10000 base stats, it would become the strongest pokemon. Plus, it's cute and gas a more creative name then "cat noise" (mew)
I wish pokemon were real (but they don't kill humans or destroy the world. I want it to be just like in the games and anime and manga and movies
Another unbeatable Pokemon. The pokemon equivalent of a genie with free will.
Starmie has always been a staple in my team since the very first game. Useful ingame and competetive. Okay HP, Decent bulk, Rapid spin, Useful ability(ies) and above average special attack and speed. And let's not forget its special move pool.
Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam (Blizzard), Thunderbolt (Thunder), Flash Cannon, Dazzling Gleam, Power Gem, Signal Beam, Hydro Pump, Grass knot, Hydro Pump, Scald. Etc
Also useful; Recover, Cosmic power.
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.
Why is starmie number 14, I got my starmie as a staryu and it is a total sweeper! It has a great move set decent attack. GO STARMIE!
Awesome Pokemon. Fast, versatile, destructive, can take a few hits, really nice design, deceptively powerful
Delphox is a good choice, because can beat water pokemon with a grass knot.
Imagine if you maxed out its sp attack and gave it an item that boosts sp attack and taught it super powerful moves
This Pokemon sweeped me twice thanks to its high speed and sp attack.
Not a psychic type
Reuniclus is awesome. In Pokemon Y, I was walking through a cave to train... And the surprise of my life, the awesomest thing ever appeared... A SHINY Solosis. I trained it until it became a Reuniclus and now it just beats everything. Even Dark/Water types.
Reuniclus is a good pokemon. If you can give it Trick Room, Dizzy Punch, and Psychic with a Twisted Spoon, it is possibly the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) Psychic-type Pokemon.
How is this Pokemon not in the Top 5? It's an amazing Sweeper with Trick room! It's base speed can't be outslowed, and with trick Room he's the Fastest DNA you ever had!
Even if Musharna does bulk better, Reuniclus does attack. Those two are equals!
Well I battled one in pokemon go and I lost but I love it.
It doesn't have mega gay
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.
People that downvote Victini is probably because they don't like gen.5, personally he is one of the most strongest mythical pokemon so far.
Victini, Fire Psychic. Well that's just awesome. Victini is Also very cute and it has good stats and abilities,not the best but I think it should be number 2 or 3
Victini can't lose. No, I'm serious it's the victory Pokemon plus it's adorable
Sigilyph is very mystical, and it can beat Alakazam any day in the year. I have a Sigilyph, and I love it! Alakazam is based of Uri Geller, and guess what? Game Freak didn't even ask for his permission to make a Pokemon based off him! Alakazam is all time the worts Psychic-type. And Mega-Alakazam sucks more.
My god this thing is op just give it the ability magic gaurd, a flame orb, and a moveset of cosmic power, psycho shift, stored power, and roost aand you're opponent is pretty much done. Why is he not number two (after Mewtwo because he's awesome).
Sigilyph is such a good pokemon. just its typing makes fighting types suffer. If you give it a move set of synchronize + psycho cut + fly + roost, it will be really reliable against flying, fighting, bug, grass, poison, and sometimes synchronize can be useful against weak psychic types.
Best Pokemon with cosmic power spam+ psycho shift (flame orb)+ stored power and roost. 1 word if you do all these things.. OP
Exeggutor has one of the highest Sp. A stats for a psychic type, excluding megas and legendaries. Also, he may not have high speed or attack, but normal attacking moves are just bad to give to a psychic type anyway. Also, his bad speed can easily be fixed with a move like sleeping powder or stun spore. Altogether with a moveset consisting of Psychic, Solar beam, Synthesis, and Stun spore/sleeping powder it has the capability to be a good pokemon to have. And who knows, with his alola form potential boosting his stats a lot.
I use it in Pokemon X and Y and it isn't that bad. For a Pokemon with seven weaknesses, it has good special attack, which is normal for phychic types. But it also has good attack and defense which makes it different from most phychic types. Combine that with a decent moveset with moves like sleep powder and leaf storm, and you got yourself a nice phychic type!
Great Pokemon high base defense, gets STAB with energy ball and psychic, may be slow but teach it trick room and BOOM problem solved. High Sp Attack too.
I beat alpha sapphire with exeggutor and he saved me from tough situations!
Can teleport before a master ball hits him. Master ball doesn't work?! IT LIED
He is so strong for a basic Pokemon and also cute!
Abra, the beast that only uses teleport...
Abra is awesome and cute
How is he number 18? He's crush several of the pokemon ahead of him.
Oh, right, 90% of these voters are basing it on appearance and the anime as opposed to stats and the game.
My spirit animal, literally love him in battle as well, just a frikin good pokemon. Screw Legendarys, this man is a legend
He's so lazy! I love SlowBro
Azelf is the best Pokemon ever!
Azelf looks good as shiny
Its also not a fairy type!
Plus super cute and legit!
Seriously, why is this not first? People are seriously going insane. Seriously, I said seriously too times in a stanza, my English teacher with seriously kill me.
So, the powerful legendary that can summon other legendaries with a flick of the hand to wreak havoc and destruction...is at number 55?!
Would you like a piece of cake? Hoopa can get it for you. Want to control all legendaries & Mythicals? Hoopa can do that.
This thing has a beast of a dual type. Only dark can beat it. Really good sp attacker.
This is ment to me number one it can do things that arceus can't do come on people. flipping hell!
It has good sp definitely being able to tank most Fire type moves.
