    What type would you love to see paired with Psychic that hasn't been done before and why?

    This is hard since they've almost used every pairing possible now, but I'd love to see it paired with Bug. It could stem a lot of good interesting designs and if Vivillon wasn't a Bug/Flying-type I would have wanted it to be Bug/Psychic. I'm hoping we do get one in the future, sometime next generation because it would look pretty cool imo.

    Oh, and welcome Atmageth and Nymphadora! Nice partner choices btw, Metagross and Espeon sure are strong physical and special attackers respectively in their own right, and who doesn't love Eeveelutions? I do.

      Welcome to the club. Ooh, a Metagross, I love him. He's quite the offensive and defensive player, he resists a lot of attacks and dishes out a lot of punishment. I use mostly his Steel moves like Meteor Mash to take my opponents down, but his Psychic moves are something as well. What do you think a Psychic/Ghost would or should look like?

      I think I mentioned it before, but if we had a Bug/Psychic type, it would be something along the lines of Shedinja, look-wise almost, but not sure about the moves or abilities. A mystical bug is something yet to be seem. Generation VII might continue the unique typing patterns and give us a Psychic bug.

        Thank you, and i think maybe a necromancer esque pokemon could be really cool, Gardevoir and Delphox based off of mages, so i think adding a more sinister looking mage would be really cool. Perhaps with a skeleton-like design

            Metagross is one of my absolute favorite psychics. He's a huge pain to train and evolve but by the time you get that third form is all pays off. He's especially a monster in third generation games - hard for anything to take it down. If you take it to the Elite Four it takes either neutral damage or resists everything. Steel/psychic was a superb combo!

            Doesn't seem like we've had a topic for a while, though. May I make one? Let's start off easy!

            What is your favorite psychic Pokemon introduced in the sixth generation?

            Pick a 6-Pokémon Psychic-type team: Malamar, Meowstic, Bronzong, Starmie, Sigilyph, Swoobat -- the most recent that I've used

            What type would you love to see paired with Psychic that hasn't been done before and why?

            Would've said Psychic/Dark before gen 6 came out; Inkay/Malamar did not disappoint at all, I was so excited to train one! I'll second the Psychic/Bug suggestion, one of those moths with the creepy eyes pattern would work as inspiration, they always freak me out.

            What is your favorite psychic Pokemon introduced in the sixth generation?

            Miaustic. What do you mean, that's not how you spell it?

            I love Meowstic, and Espurr is so creepily cute! I trained two Meowstic of both genders in my X game, and I love using them both in double battles because they look adorable together.

            I really like Malamar, design-wise. To me, it looks just absolutely epic. When it comes to battling, though, Delphox would have to be my favorite. Its base Special Attack is 114, which is a lot. Its Speed is also pretty decent, and could outrun many other Pokémon in its tier. :]

            I enjoyed used Delphox a lot in the game so I'd have to go with that.

              Definitely Malamar, Psychic/Dark is such a cool type. And Contrary is a great ability for it.

                Metagross is a pain to take down lol. That's why I prefer using him instead of battling him. Meteor Mash is epic and he's quite resistant to a lot of types. Doesn't help that Ghost attacks can now do more damage to Steel-types, and that hurts Metagross also being part Psychic.

                Welcome to the club. Haven't really used Espurr but its evolved form I have. What moves does your Psychic team know? I love Inkay and Malamar, such an awesome typing and quite scary to use. Malamar reminds me of Ursula from The Little Mermaid for some reason.

                Welcome to the club. Great choice with Espeon, love her. She's tough in battle when I use her, knocked out half my opponent's team with her. Delphox would be my choice of favorite Gen. VI Psychic-type as well, very mystical and crafty.

                Oops that was supposed to say "enjoyed using."

                And I really thought it was cool to have a Fire/Psychic-type. We had some Fire-types that could use Psychic moves but to actually put the typing on it was nice.

                Are you kidding, the tentacles, that blue, the read beak (?) and creepy eyes, plus they're both evil! Malamar definitely reminded me of Ursula too, and I bet we're not the only ones.

                I evolved both my Meowstic from Espurr, I remember I had to look for a while for a girl, for some reason I was bumping into males all the time. I've only trained them to lv. 30ish, I think, because I wanted to add more Pokemon to my team.

                As for my team, let's see. Kai the Bronzong is on my Platinum challenge, he recently learned Zen Headbutt from the move tutor. Baudelaire the Malamar is also a physical attacker, with Psycho Cut and Payback. My two Meowstic, Armand and Marguerite, always battle together, and while the boy is the cleric, he can also hit pretty hard -- you have IVs and natures to thank for that, I don't care about those in-game. And well, Psychic is the go-to move for most of my Psychic types: Dijon the Swoobat was super fun to use in BW and Rubin the Starmie was one of the first Pokemon I EV trained. N's Sigilyph is one of my favorite Pokemon to use in the PWT, so I constantly change his moves.

                Meowstic definitely, in fact I used the female one specifically. She did a good job throughout the game given I ran into a fair share of Poison and Fighting-types, but she has some coverage moves as well. I should try using the male sometime, maybe breed my female Meowstic for one lol.

                I also tried out Malamar and Delphox for a while, both seem really cool-looking Pokemon. And Delphox's cry is so adorable, especially when played with in Pokemon Amie.

                    Which Psychic-type is the best to use offensively?

                    Hmm... that's a tough one...

                    My battle style is almost 100% offense in the first place, so just about any Psychic-Type will do for me, haha I'm torn between Mewtwo, Alakazam, and Gardevoir.

                      I will go ahead and answer the new topic myself as well. I think Mewtwo is the best Psychic-type offensively. Very powerful to begin with, and if he transforms into Mega Mewtwo X, he gains Fighting as a second type, halving damage taken from Dark and Ghost types. Psystrike, his signature move, does a lot of damage but won't hit a Dark type (unless you use Miracle Eye), but no worries, as his Aura Sphere can take down those Dark-types.

                      I'd say Gardevoir, the new generation's introduction of Fairy-type was very kind to her because now she has an advantage against a type she often struggled with in the past, plus she lost two common weaknesses (Bug and Dark) in exchange for two uncommon weaknesses (Poison and Steel). Also, she gained a Mega to go with all that so yeah you can say Gardy definitely became a more amazing attacker thanks to her new Fairy-type advantages. Mewtwo comes a close second due to its diverse movepool and access to two very strong Megas.

                      Mewtwo

                      I'd say Gardevoir with the new Fairy-typing as well. I always liked that it could learn Thunderbolt because it filled a bit of a necessity that I always considered.

                        Out of all the Psychic types i've used, Starmie trumps them all in terms of offense IMO. Bolt-Beam never gets old XD

                        Yeah I can't exactly disagree with that. Surf, Psychic, Thunderbolt, Ice Beam is quite an epic moveset.

                        I'm gonna say Starmie as well, it's fast and has two very reliable STABs in Surf and Psychic, plus other strong moves like you guys mentioned already. I enjoy using Sigilyph offensively too, he has a great movepool, and he's amazing in doubles as well, with Heat Wave and his Flying-typing.

                        And while those two are great special attackers, if you want a strong physical attacker, Malamar's your Pokemon. He's a devious one, with Foul Play, Payback, increased critical hit ratio moves like Psycho Cut and Nightslash. Contrary Malamar really packs a punch with Superpower, with the added stat boosts!

                        For me, it would be Alakazam. Its base Special Attack stat is 135, which is quite gigantic. Along with that, it has a bunch of special-based moves in its arsenal as well, which it could take full advantage of. Alakazam is also pretty fast, which is a plus. :]

                          I should try that Starmie move set. How do I make Alakazam more powerful and a bit defensive so he isn't taken out so easily?
