Pokémon General Poll #30 - Favorite Psychic Pokémon

They can read your mind, and get you that soda from across the room that you wanted. And then, when they fight, they can blast their opponents into oblivion without ever touching them once. Psychic types have often been seen as a powerhouse type, full of Pokémon that are incredibly strong. It's also the most common legendary typing, giving it a status no other type has. From Abra to Meloetta, Psychic types can be considered the cream of the crop! So what's your favorite Psychic type and why?

Thanks to Hikari10 for this week's poll idea!

Oh, this is hard for me. I love most psychic types..
I'mma' gonna' go for Alakazam because it has a IQ of 5000 and I always, always had it on my team in GBA games, but I also love it's move pool.
So, Alakazam.

My favorite one would be Wynaut,isn't it cute, plus Encore + Counter/Mirror Coat spam is nice ... :)

November 21st, 2011, 2:44 PM
Ahhh, there are too many to choose just one, but I think I'll go with Swoobat Starmie Gothitelle Baltoy. Yeah, Baltoy is cute and a little weird. It hovers and spins like a top and is made of dirt like some ancient piece of art. I dunno. I like the weird ones.

Psychic-type Pokemon are among my favorites!

Here's the ones I really like.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_097hypno.png Hypno: It's fun to use and it loves eating dreams!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_178xatu-f.png Xatu: It's a Psychic birdy, and it's design is cool too.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_196espeon.png Espeon: Eeveelutions are well-loved here and Espeon is no exception!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_282gardevoir.png Gardevoir: People always complain about the males but I love Gardevoir's design.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_308medicham.png Medicham: It's part Fighting and can learn Hi Jump Kick too!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_475gallade.png Gallade: My buddy PlatinumDude's fave Pokemon and it has a massive movepool that makes it a great competitive battler.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_518musharna.png Musharna: It's pink and it's odd plus I love Munna too.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_576gothitelle.png Gothitelle: She is what made want Black, I caught a Gothita, trained her and she turned out to be a powerhouse of my team and her pre-evos Gothita and Gothorita are cool too. So many people think she's scary, but I have room in my heart for her.

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_579reuniclus.png Reuniclus: I can see it's everyone's fave 5th Gen Psychic, it's a great sweeper with Trick Room equipped and it's huggable and like jelly!

http://i1193.photobucket.com/albums/aa354/Hikari10Girl/Pokemon%20Sprites%20Collection/th_605elgyem.png Elgyem: It's an alien, it's cute, it's playful and I loved it after seeing Marriland with it. I caught so many of these things cos I love Elgyem! And Beheeyem is awesome too.

November 21st, 2011, 4:08 PM
My favorite Psychic Pokemon are Gardevoir (it's beautiful), Gallade (it's awesome competitively and aesthetically) and Reuniclus (it's a gummy bear that can actually fight back).

November 21st, 2011, 8:23 PM
Even though it's a bit overrated, Espeon is my Favorite Psychic Pokemon, as it's my favorite Eeveelution as well as one of my top favorite Pokemon. Other favorite Psychis would have to be Gallade/Gardevoir, and Reuniclus.

November 21st, 2011, 8:41 PM
I'm going to force myself to pick only one.

I like Gallade for his fantastic movepool, great stats (despite lacklustre speed), cool name, auspicious typing, intriguing design and the weirdness of his sword arm things. :D Also he kills as a lead in the Battle Factory with Thunder Wave and Confuse Ray. Also it helps that I like his evolution method.

So, Gallade it is! One of the few physical Psychic-types! :)

Favourite Psychic Type (Non-Competitive)

Alakazam was my first ever psychic type (evolved from Abra) and was always one of my favourite pokemon in game. He could tear up opponents with ease. Yes his moveset was terrible looking back all those years ago in Fire Red but he was still awesome ^.^

Favourite Psychic Type (Competitive)
Metagross was one of my team's star pokemon in the DPP metagame. He has the ability to set up and sweep and is just brutal in offense with his meteor mash's. This generation my teams haven't been big on psychic types so he still remains my favourite competitive psychic type.
However I am looking to experiment with Reuniclus so my opinion may change very soon ^.^

November 22nd, 2011, 12:40 AM
very hard poll! Pyschic-types in general are one of my favorite types (Bug, poison, normal, dark, psychic). And narrowing my favorite Psychic Pokemon down is like choosing a specific grain of sand in a beach! Let's hear the breakdown.

Some of my favorite Pokemon:

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/151.gif: He can learn all moves! :) and he is very cute.

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/196.gif: For me, he is the coolest Eeveelution. Plus Magic Bounce, Espeon is a beast! Also,. I love his shiny green form

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/282.gif: Very feminish. From the Generation III, she is my favorite Pokemon. :)

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/579.gif: One of the coolest Pokemon ever made! He's design is great, and not too intimidating. He also has a high SpA, and no Life Orb damage, plus Psyshock. :) Cool.

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/475.gif: I always have a soft spot for male , and Gallade never failed to impress me. With those sword-arms thingy.

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/376.gif: THE COOLEST, MOST BAD-ASS PSEUDO-LEGENDARY. I always remember Megaman when I look at Metagross, and his diamond body is like so hard, and very sturdy. He has a very strong STAB Meteor Mash, plus Agility. He may be hard to obtain, but he is certainly a powerhouse when using it.

http://www.pokestadium.com/pokemon/sprites/handheld/blackwhite/animated/381.gif: Cool draconian legendary. Luster Purge has a nice effect. Plus it is a freaking jet.

When it comes down to it, it is a close fight between Metagross and Reuniclus.

But I choose Reuniclus since he has more gimmicks to abuse, a happier aura, and generally a better Pokemon.

Espeon :: It's cute and it's really fast =D
Mew & Victini :: My favorite legendaries <3
Gardevoir :: It's wearing a dress xD;

Metagross, even though I rarely use him for his Psychic attacks. He looks awesome and hits very hard. Throw in an Agility, and...

Starmie is also a good Psychic type who helped me a lot in Soul Silver.

I'm a big sucker for Espeon, ever since using one all those years ago in Gold version. It's easily my favourite Eeveelution, with a cool design and great stats. That being said, I do have a soft spot for Girafarig: it's not a great battler, but I love its design, its name (IT'S A PALINDROME! ZOMG!) and its funky typing.

November 22nd, 2011, 10:59 AM
I like psychic types a lot, probably my faves would be Slowbro, Jynx (liked her better before they made her purple), Starmie, Wobbuffet, both the Latis and Deoxys. That's a lot XD

This is going to be very easy for me since I hate most Psychic type Pokemon. the only three Psychic type Pokemon I like is Lugia, Latias and Latios.


November 22nd, 2011, 6:31 PM

If anyone couldn't tell.

November 22nd, 2011, 6:44 PM
My favorite is probably either Mew or Espeon.

November 22nd, 2011, 9:55 PM
i love psychic pokemon! espeon first, then gardevoir and alakazam.

Trance and Moss
November 22nd, 2011, 10:59 PM
I'll just pick my fav 5th gen one for now. Musharna.

November 22nd, 2011, 11:52 PM
Xatu!!! I love a good Xatu with Future Sight. Great design, classic Pokemon, and good moves, too!

Moltres Rider
November 24th, 2011, 6:58 AM
1. Lugia
2. Mewtwo
3. Sigilyph
4. Xatu

those are my top 4

November 24th, 2011, 7:43 AM
For the purpose of nastolgia, I would have to say mewtwo. I just love how op he was in gen one. For second place I think I'm gunna go with alakazam. He was a real power house of my team back when I first played pokemon gold. If I had to choose something more modern, I guess I would choose bronzong because he's really good at setting up screen support and doesn't afraid of anything (except for fire). He was the psychic type I used the most in gen 4.

November 26th, 2011, 2:16 PM
My favourite psychic type is Gardevoir. It just looks so elegant and beautiful and was a fun Pokemon to use in Pokemon Ruby (especially seeing I had a shiny one). It's a shame it isn't very good competitively.

November 27th, 2011, 3:08 AM
Reuniclus. It's so cool and I have liked it ever since I first saw it. It's also my favorite Pokémon overall. Cool design + MONSTER AT BATTLING=Amazing :DD

November 27th, 2011, 4:13 AM
Psychic type Pokémon are really strong !
My favourite one is unquestionably Espeon. Anyway, it isn't only my favourite psychic type, but also my favourite Pokémon ever.
It's cute, tough, graceful... I love it. It's the best :pink_love:

November 27th, 2011, 4:26 AM

Crazy adorable, has pretty good stats overall, and due to being legendary can specialise in whatever stat it wants really. Natural Cure is useful, meaning it can switch into an expected t-wave or something and switch right out, then switch in later to use Giga Drain or Psychic! :3 (for mine at least @ PO). AND I WANT IT. Plus Celebi is just amazing overall and and and... :333

Oh yeah I also like Jirachi.

November 28th, 2011, 10:26 PM
As you can guess, my favorite psychic pokémon is Mewtwo.

November 28th, 2011, 10:28 PM
Espeon would be my favourite Psychic Pokemon. It is very reliable and has been a very powerful member in any team that I include it in.

November 30th, 2011, 2:37 PM
Starmie and Metagross are my favorite psychic types. They are awesome Pokemon, both powerful and with awesome designs. I'm also a fan of Espeon and Gardevoir, and Alakazam. These are my top 5 favorite Psychic types.

December 1st, 2011, 1:11 PM
I LOVED Gardevoir. The elegant appeal as well as her move set! A combination of Hypnosis and Dream Eater always devoured my opponent.

December 1st, 2011, 1:49 PM
Starmie. It's really great in game, having good stats and a very wide special movepool.

December 1st, 2011, 2:00 PM
Mewtwo because it is such a bro in every way, and to a lot of people it is the most amazing thing in their childhood.
Metagross is really cool too.

December 1st, 2011, 2:57 PM
Grumpig has been my faavourite ever since I caught a spoink in sapphire. Not sure were the idea to give a pig psychic powers came from but it worked for me. Close runners up were Exeggcutor and Slowking

December 4th, 2011, 12:35 PM
My favourite pure psychic type would be Espeon, destroyed anything in Colosseum.

December 7th, 2011, 3:35 PM
Latias is my all time favorite

Lugia is a close behind Latias, as Lugia is just...BEASTLY!

Mew is the cutest Pokemon of them all!

Espeon is my favorite Psychic normal Pokemon & Eeveeolution and I always use HER, yes I train female Espeons

Gardevoir would be 2nd, most used in the 3rd Generation by me.

Latios, because of his twin sister, is on the list as well :) (Can't like one and not the other, ya know?)

December 7th, 2011, 5:11 PM

Gothitelle and Gardevoir are my favorites; I also would like to mention that generation 5 was a great psychic generation; so many good ones to pick from! (unlike gen 4)

December 8th, 2011, 5:48 PM
I really like Musharna's design and its movepool is really diverse. Plus it's a gen V Pokemon so that instantly means it gets brownie points. I dunno what sparked my interest for it... it more or less happened out of the blue about a month after the release of B/W.

December 8th, 2011, 6:17 PM
It a tie between Gardeviour and Musharna. Both awesome!
