    In Gen 1, Psychic-types were commonly associated with moves like Barrier, Reflect, and Light Screen, so I presume that's why - they create those barriers to block things coming right for them, because nerds like Alakazam have frail bodies and have to make up for it somehow. Rock Throw is a more distant attack and they can't set up those barriers as easily.

    Also Alakazam can make Machamp punch itself in the head, so that's why Psychics are super-effective against fighting. They can move stuff.
