    There are 85 different Psychic-type Pokémon now with the addition of Generation VII (Alola). This includes pure Psychic-types and first and secondary Psychic-types (Mega Evolutions in this poll count as the Pokémon they evolved from and not a separate evolution).

    I decided to make this poll one vote per person, although you can list more favorites (if you have more than one) in a comment if you wish.

    I would have to say that Espeon is my favorite Psychic-type, not only because she's one of the Eeveelutions (which I adore), but because she is a multitasking fighter (attacking with moves like Psychic, Psybeam, etc; her ability Magic Bounce keeping her from being afflicted with status changes and bouncing back entry hazards; her ability to restore HP with Morning Sun; and to cut damage using Reflect and Light Screen). Espeon is very beautiful and classy too, and I love her lavender-colored fur, her perky ears and whiskers, split tail, mesmerizing eyes and that red jewel in the center of her forehead. Forever a favorite of mine.

        I picked Mew, mostly because the TCG. My first Mew card was Ancient Mew and, having seen names like Lily Pad Mew and Mew with Bubbles in Beckett Pokémon Collector Magazine, I used to dream of having all sorts of Mew cards.

        I got another Mew card in middle school (Southern Islands), but it wasn't until high school that I really started building up my Mew collection. Most of my collection is from eBay, but I lucked-out and pulled a Gold Star Mew myself!

        Now if only I could someday get my hands on "Sunset Mew" for an affordable price. Dx

        Legendary/Mythical Pokémon aside, my favorite is Girafarig.

        I voted for Meowstic due to being a fan of its gender differences concept. Other Psychics I also love include the likes of Gardevoir, Gallade, Hypno, Espeon, Sigilyph, Gothitelle, Reuniclus, Xatu, Slowbro, Slowking, Beheeyem, Malamar, Oranguru, Lunala, Musharna and the Latis.

          It's weird because I never think of psychic as a type I really like, but there are quite a few psychic types I enjoy. Abra, Hypno, Starmie, Jynx, Metagross, Musharna, and Sigilyph

          favorite is between starmie and jynx hmm

                    Psychic is actually my second favorite Type, mostly because there are so many awesome Psychic Pokemon that I like. My favorite Psychic Pokemon (and favorite Pokemon in general) is Mewtwo, but I also really like Gardevoir, Delphox, Gallade, Mew, Latias, Latios, Alakazam, Grumpig, Alolan Raichu, Exeggutor, Medicham, Lugia, Espeon, Slowbro, Slowking, Starmie, Xatu, Sigilyph, Gothitelle, Reuniclus, Metagross, Bronzong, Jirachi, both Meowstic, Hoopa, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Deoxys.

                      I love Jirachi. It's cute and with moves like Iron Head and Thunder Wave, I like to use it on my team.
                      How do you type the "é" in Pokémon? Well, first you hold the Alt key, press 1, 3, and 0, then release Alt.

                        My favorite Psychic type is Alakazam without his Mega evolution He's just so cool and powerful but alas get knocked down quite easy if hit by a Strong attack But i don't let that stop me from loving this Psychic beast of a Pokemon.

                        Don't give up fight 'till the end!

                        I can never pick a favorite Psychic type. I like all of them but I don't really care for one in particular! I am going to say Bruxish for now since it is one of my favorite gen 7 mons overall. I've had a ton of fun using it as well.

                          My favourite legendary and psychic pokemon of all is Necrozma. I like his bio, his design, moves, ability, forms, and everything.
                          I wish Necrozma was real-life.

                            But anyway, my vote went to Espeon :3
                            Right?! It's also jarring how many Pokemon I thought were Psychic, but aren't!

                            I had to vote for Alakazam though and keep it OG. Espeon would've been my second option, followed by Inkay (strictly for how it looks and I just caught one in my Ultra Sun playthrough).

                              I usually don't like to pick legendaries, but of as far as Psychic goes, Mewtwo is by far my favourite.

                              Gallade is my favorite. I like its design, it's a fairly unique having the Fighting-type paired with Psychic, and it's very good in battle. I used it for the first time in Omega Ruby and it was fantastic.

                                Metagross and Sigilyph are very close to each other in that regard, but ultimately my favorite is Metagross.

                                Sigilyph is really, really close in second place because I am a bit of a mythology nerd and the Nazca lines, which it's based off, especially pique my interest. Besides, it looks so frickin' amazing.

                                I can only vote for one? :(

                                Golduck, lol

                                But, Malamar. Since I can only vote for one. Malamar is so deliciously sinister and cool. I also find Espeon pretty cool and the entire Ralts line is my go to Pokemon if I ever am in need of a good Psychic Pokemon while playing Pokemon Emerald. Also, the Slowpoke line!!!! I really adore them, and have used a Slowbro and Slowking in a play through before, they're so cool.

                                What?! Just one? Noooo! It can't be... T_T

                                Kadabra/ Alakazam. I have a soft spot for Kadabra in particular because often in my play through of the main story I don't trade, yet even as Kadabra he can be plenty powerful enough to beat the game. I also think of Sabrina's notorious Kadabra in one of my favorite episodes. This Pokemon seemed godly.

                                Other honorable mentions include Azelf, the lati twins, Gallade. Edit: Almost forgot Oranguru and Spoink!
                                I got Haxorus on "What Dragon-Type Pokemon are you?"

                                  Alakazam is my favourite Psychic-type, even though I'm stuck with Kadabra most of the time.

                                  While it may not be the powerful special titan it was in Gen I, it still has some great moves like Focus Blast and Dazzling Gleam.

                                  The Mega Evolution may be gimmicky with Trace, but trace the right Ability and it might just be worth a Mega slot. Sheer Force Psychic or Focus Blast from 175 Sp. Atk is no laughing matter.

                                  My other favourite Psychic-types happen to be Alolan Raichu, Slowbro, Starmie, Mewtwo, Mew, Xatu, Espeon, Slowking, Lugia, Celebi, Gardevoir, Medicham, Metagross, Latias, Latios, Jirachi, Deoxys, Bronzong, Gallade, Mesprit, Azelf, Cresselia, Sigilyph, Reuniclus, Malamar, Hoopa, Tapu Lele, Solgaleo, Lunala, and Necrozma.
