You can't, unfortunately. Alakazam's defenses are extremely low, so regardless of how hard you try, you just won't be able to make it survive for long. :( Best thing you could do is take down as much Pokémon with it as possible while it's still out on the field.

I've given mine Aura Sphere to knock off Dark-types in addition to giving it Psychic moves and Leftovers to heal itself. Hope that works for the time being.

Hm, it's been a while since we last had a new topic here. Mind if I start one? :) If you ever had psychic Pokémon in real life, how would you use them? For something personal, to help others, or both? Additionally, could you list some psychic-types that you'd like to own?

I'd use them to heal myself and others, and take down bad guys with them. Since they can see the future, we could stop bad things before they happen.

Mhmm, yeah, I agree with you, Cloyster! They could definitely be used from stopping future tragedies from happening. Personally, I'd use them to help improve my remembrance and memorization skills. I'm pretty weak in these two aspects, sadly. ):

Oh boy, I haven't tended to my clubs in awhile. Let's get this Psychic one up and running again.

Should we start a new topic? Any other ideas of what I could add here or what we could do?

Hm... well, we've discussed offensive psychic Pokémon earlier, but didn't talk about the defensive ones. Let's get to it, shall we? Defensively, which psychic-type is best to use when battling?

I have put this topic up as the new topic. I will go ahead and say that Metagross is probably the best Psychic-type to use defensively, it being primarily a Steel-type and having awesome stats. It's so hard to take down and I've had issues in the past defeating it, even with a strong Pokemon.

Apart from super-bulky Lugia who is definitely the first that comes to mind? Then I think Cresselia is one of the most iconic defensive Psychic-type, with her amazing HP and defenses, and a great ability in Levitate. Of course, her offensive abilities are, well, not that great. If you need something that can also pack a punch, then Metagross has great Attack, and the Defense to stay in battle longer. That, and a good defensive typing with Steel.

Anyway, apart from the legendaries, for an in-game alternative, I suggest Bronzong. I'm using one right now in a Platinum challenge, and it's very resistant. Mine also has Levitate, which grants it immunity to Ground-type attacks.

Despite how little I've used Psychic types, I've honestly always liked them. I think it's the combination of the usually creative and interesting designs that they manage to throw out, and the fact that they're often beasts when it comes to damage. I've especially always liked using the Abra family in battle due to their combination of insanely high Speed and Sp. Attack, so they usually get a spot reserved on my team when I'm playing first generation games. The reason I rarely use them though, is the fact that there honestly aren't that many of them, or they're relatively hard to get your hands on. They usually turn out to be valuable teammates though, so not like it's a waste of time to get them ;)

Defensively, which psychic-type is best to use when battling?

I've never really thought about this when using Psychic types tbh :o First priority is usually just to get a Psychic type, whereafter I think about its Special Attack, since that's mainly what I'm gonna use it for haha. Defense has never really been much of a priority for me, since I'll rely on them to take out the enemy Pokemon rather quickly, since they usually aren't very bulky. In my experience though, Lugia and Metagross are probably the ones who've been best at holding their own in longer battles, but I've never really focused my on the Psychic side of them either, so it feels like a bit of a cop-out answer. So yeah, can't really give much a definitive answer here, since it's not something I've ever payed much attention to D:

Welcome to the club. Lugia is a secret powerhouse of mine. He's hard to take down, even when afflicted with a status ailment. I have had issues with some of his attacks connecting (darn poor accuracy) but he deals a lot of damage. I'd say he is great to use both offensively and defensively.

Pick a 6-Pokémon Psychic-type team:
Alakazam, Xatu, Exeggutor, Wobbufett, Bronzong and Medicham.

Which Psychic-type is the best to use defensively?
A Levitate Bronzong is just awesome. Good luck trying to bring your Fire-type in my Stealth Rocks haha(oh... hello Heatran :/).

Welcome to the club. Alakazam is a great choice for a Pokemon partner, he's just amazing. I like your Psychic team too. What moves do they know? I find Bronzong a bit of a pain to take down, but not nearly as bad as Metagross. That's why I like using both, they're defensively and offensively strong.

I would say Deoxys Defense. Its defensive stats are extremely huge, so it could be a real threat when it comes to walling and whatnot. Cresselia is pretty good, too. After one Calm Mind, your opponent would be having quite a hard time stopping it. Another pick is Celebi. :] Aside from legends, I'd say Wobbuffett.

I don't know about 6th gen movesets 'cause I still don't have played pokémon X/Y(yeah, I know :/), sorry.
Metagross is awesome. I saw a Metagross running dual screens and wow thta thing was extremely difficult do KO. But the best of all Psychic-types Walls is certainly Lugia.

What type would you love to see paired with Psychic that hasn't been done before and why?
A lot of u guys said Psychic/Ghost would be awesome. I agree that the design and unique typing would be incredible, but two x4 weakness(Dark and Ghost) is a lot to take, anything with Sucker Punch(I mean anything, it doesn't even need stab) would OHKO. Of course, based that the Psychic/Ghost pokémon would be a Sweeper with poor defensive stats. Maybe a Wall Psychic/Type wouldn't be so bad and highly competitive.
To me, a unique pairing to Psychic would be Poison. Psychic/Poison brings a lot to the table: x4 Resistence to Fighting, resistence to the new Fairy type, immunity to Toxic and Toxic Spikes, neutral damage to Bug and a great Super Effective STAB against Fairy-Type.
Its three weaknesses(Ground, Dark and Ghost) aren't quadruple effective, wich is a great thing to dual-type pokémons. Stat wise, I think it would be more of a wall, but a Special Attacker would be great as well.

Yup; ghost/psychic is definitely a good idea. I've always wanted to see one. :) If it were to actually exist, though, I would like it to be an evolution for Mr. Mime. In-design, I'd imagine it to look something like this:

Spoiler:


Looks pretty scary, doesn't it? To evolve it into this Pokémon, maybe you could have Mr. Mime level-up by holding onto a set of Reaper Cloth.

I'd love to see a Ghost/Psychic-type, it seems like something that would be unique and fresh, and there's that rumored legendary called Hoopa who is said a Ghost/Psychic-type. As one said earlier, it may have two 4x weaknesses (Ghost and Dark) which are funnily enough its only weaknesses. Aside from that, immunities to Normal and Fighting and pretty much no resistances aside from Poison if I recall.

Another one I'd like to see is Electric/Psychic, I saw a list of fakemon and there was one with this typing. It seems like there can be loads of design potential for a Pokemon with this typing so I do hope we can get one in hopefully what is the 7th Generation.

Welcome to the club. They definitely have the defense edge because of being part Steel, tough suckers to take down, that's for sure.

Welcome to the club. I am not sure which of Meloetta's forms you wanted, so I put its default Aria Forme in the members list. What moves does your awesome team have?
