Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon - Psychic Type Pokemon: Directory

This article contains all the information about Psychic Type Pokemon including their weaknesses, their strengths from Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon.

Psychic Type Pokemon

Going back to its roots in Generation 1 Psychic Type Pokemon were a force to be reckoned with thanks to its lone weaknesses to Bug. With the advent of Generation 2 Ghost and Dark Type moves were introduced to balance that aspect of the game. Starting in Generation 4 Pokemon moves were split into two with Physical Splits and Special Splits. In effect Dark Types and Ghost Types could capitalize off the poor defenses of Psychic Types. The arrival of Generation 6 also marked the changes in terms of Types. Previously Steel types offered cover against Dark Types but Pokemon like Metagross who are Steel/ Psychic no longer take neutral damage from Dark and Ghost but instead take double the damage.Notable Trainers who specialize in the use of Psychic Type Pokemon include Sabrina the Gym Leader of Saffron City Will of the Elite Four Gym Leaders Tate and Liza from Hoenn Lucian who belongs to Sinnoh Region’s Elite Four Caitlin of the Unova Region’s Elite Four member and Olympia the Anistar City’s Gym Leader.

Battle Properties

Like any other pokemon Psychic Type Pokemon in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon have an advantage over certain types. Some of those types are Poison and Fighting Types. However they also take neutral damage from other elements but deal halved damage against other pokemon. Dark types are immune to Psychic whereas Steel types take half-damage from Psychic Type Pokemon.

Type Defenses

×2 Bug Dark Ghost
x1 Normal Fire Water Electric Grass Ice Poison Ground Flying Rock Dragon Steel Fairy
x0
×1/2 Fighting Psychic

The above mentioned Type Defenses pertain to the damage dealt by certain types to a Single-type Psychic Pokemon. Note that this will vary for certain Dual-type Psychic Pokemon as it will also have to factor the other typing.However this can change if the Psychic Type Pokemon is a dual-type (i.e. Psychic/ Fairy like Mr. Mime). Then it will take quarter damage from Fighting Types and neutral damage from Dark thanks to its part Fairy Typing from Generation 6 onwards. However if it gets hit by Poison or Steel Type Attacks it will get double damage in addition to its Ghost Type weakness.

Dual Type

Dual Type pokemon often take more damage from a single element. However this is done in exchange for taking regular damage from another element the type in question is weak to. For example Mr. Mime is a dual Psychic/ Fairy Type pokemon. If it takes damage from a Bug Type attack it’ll only receive x1 damage because of it being half-Fairy type. However if it gets hit by a Steel type attack Mr. Mime will take double the damage because of its additional typing.

Primary: Psychic

Dual Type Psychic Type Pokemon have two mixtures. One has Psychic as its primary type and the other as its secondary type. While this does not have significant difference in affecting the kind of skills it can learn it indicates that the Pokemon is likely to change the secondary type upon evolution. One example is Psybeam. This attack would do more damage if the pokemon is either a dual type with Psychic or a pure Psychic type pokemon. This is due to the Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) mechanic.
