Is Psychic physical or special?
|PP||10 (max. 16)|
Why is Psychic so powerful? The main reason Psychic-types were so powerful in Pokémon Red and Blue is the games’ type matchup balancing. Psychic-type Pokémon were only weak to Bug-type Pokémon and other Psychic-types in a generation when Bug-type Pokémon were incredibly weak and had bad moves.
Is Psychic or dream eater better? Psychic is not hampered by these restrictions and is only slightly less powerful in the general case. If it successfully lowers the Special of a victim, it then becomes more powerful than Dream Eater, damage-wise, although it lacks the healing side effect.
Is Dark strong against Psychic? The Dark type, along with the Steel type, was introduced in Generation II in order to balance against Psychic type, so it is immune to Psychic attacks. However, this immunity can be nullified by use of the move Miracle Eye.
