What’s Good Against Psychic Type Pokemon?
Psychic type pokemon are a special type of pokemon who rely on special moves instead of physical ones to cause damage to their opponents.
Previously, they only inflicted damage based on their special moves but now they can also attack their opponents physically.
They are represented by the purple color and an open eye is used to symbolize these pokemon.
As strong as they are, they still have weaknesses, which are discussed further.
Weaknesses of Psychic Type Pokemon
Generally, the Steel, Ghost and Dark types of pokemon are good against the psychic type.
Some well known weaknesses of the psychic type are given as follows.
Only Strong Against Certain Types
Generally, psychic types are only effective against fighting and poison pokemon.
Their ground attacks are especially effective against the poison types and their flying and fairy attacks are effective against the fighting type. However, the list ends there.
Only Resist Two Types of Attacks Effectively
As mentioned above, Psychic Type Pokemon are effective against certain types of pokemon.
Just like that, they can only resist two attack types, which are psychic and fighting.
A defense against the fighting type is good but it is still not that good because most of the psychic pokemon are lousy when it comes to physical defense.
No Effect On Dark Type Pokemon
As shocking as it is, Psychic Type Pokemon are useless against Dark Type Pokemon.
Psychic moves do not affect Dark Pokemon, which is a huge weakness that can be used against them.
No pokemon is invincible, you just need to find out their weaknesses to know what to use against them.
Although this immunity can be removed with the miracle eye, it is still something you can use against these types of Pokemon.
Moreover, they are not very effective against Steel Type Pokemon and other Psychic Type Pokemon.
