Top 10 Best Psychic Type Pokemon

The Top Ten
1 Mewtwo Mewtwo is a psychic-type Legendary Pokémon from Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Ken Sugimori, it made its first appearance in the games Pokémon Red and Blue. It was created by Dr. Fuji using gene splicing in an attempt to clone Mew. In the Pokémon games, it's infamously known as the most powerful Pokémon among all species. Mewtwo is capable of evolving into two... read more

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

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!

2 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.

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.

3 Espeon Espeon, known in Japan as Eifie, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.)

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!

4 Alakazam Alakazam is a Psychic-type Pokemon that was first introduced in Game Freak's Pokemon Red & Green (Blue for outside of Japan) version. Alakazam is the final evolution of the Abra line. It evolves from Kadabra when traded. In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it evolves from Kadabra when given a Linking Cord. It is said to have an IQ of 5000 and is a human-like Pokemon. It has high special attack and speed,... read more

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 Mew Mew is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon created by Nintendo's and Game Freak's Pokémon media franchise. Designed by Satoshi Tajiri, it was introduced in Pokémon Red and Blue. Mew is capable of learning every move in the games (except signature moves of certain Pokémon), and can shapeshift into other Pokémon species.

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.

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

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.

How is Deoxys number 10?! It is more awesome than Mewtwo, Alakazam, and Espeon by far. It has a way more awesome 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. Its 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 Mew's 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 swept a Crawdaunt at a type disadvantage.

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

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...

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

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.

9 Lugia Lugia, known in Japan as ルギア (Rugia), is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise. First introduced in Generation II, it's the mascot of the game Pokémon Silver. It serves as the master of the legendary birds trio, and is part of the tower tuo along with Ho-Oh.

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.

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

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!

The Contenders
11 Latios Latios, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

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

12 Starmie

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 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.

Awesome Pokemon. Fast, versatile, destructive, can take a few hits, really nice design, deceptively powerful

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

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

14 Reuniclus

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.

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.

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!

15 Exeggutor Exeggutor, known in Japan as Nassy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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.

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!

16 Sigilyph

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.

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

17 Slowbro

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.

He's so lazy! I love SlowBro

My spirit animal, literally love him in battle as well, just a frikin good pokemon. Screw Legendarys, this man is a legend

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

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

19 Abra Abra is a character from Pokemon. It started out in Pokemon Red & Green (Blue version for outside Japan) version, and was one of the first psychic type Pokemon you could run into. It sleeps for 18 hours a day and teleports if it senses danger. Its only move it can learn by level up is teleport (which will make it leave unless mean looked or a Pokemon area trap us out) until it evolves into Kadabra,... read more

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...

20 Delphox Delphox, known in Japan as Mahoxy, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Delphox is a good choice, because can beat water pokemon with a grass knot.

This Pokemon sweeped me twice thanks to its high speed and sp attack.

Not a psychic type

21 Azelf Azelf, known in Japan as Agnome, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Azelf is the best Pokemon ever!
My fave
Azelf looks good as shiny
Its also not a fairy type!
Just psychic
Plus super cute and legit!

22 Mega Mewtwo Y

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.

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

So, the powerful legendary that can summon other legendaries with a flick of the hand to wreak havoc and at number 55?!

This thing has a beast of a dual type. Only dark can beat it. Really good sp attacker.

Would you like a piece of cake? Hoopa can get it for you. Want to control all legendaries & Mythicals? Hoopa can do that.

24 Alolan Raichu Alolan Raichu, known in Japan as the same name, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

My brother's favorite pokemon after pikachu and raichu.

Well I battled one in pokemon go and I lost but I love it.

It doesn't have mega gay
