Discover the kings of the competitive Psychic type.
In the origins of Pokémon it was possible to see that there was a type that got rule them all, thus giving rise to the fact that in the list of the best Pokémon of the first generation we can see that only one Pokémon does not belong to the Psychic type. And even with this, the reason why it was not fulfilled is because Mewtwo was not included for being a waste.
It is precisely for this reason that although we have been able to see that over time the Psychic-type Pokémon have been losing steam, mainly because everything introduced in the second generation was aimed at nerfing them, we can see that there have been some that have got endure as the best Psychic-type Pokémon. And it is one of the five best that we are going to talk about below:
Psychic-type Pokémon dominated the competitive during the first generation
As always, we cannot start these articles without mentioning the obvious, since there will be a series of discards to take into account, so, to avoid them invading the entire top, Legendary Pokémon, Mythical Pokémon, Ultra Entities and Paradox forms are not includedthus giving rise to, for obvious reasons, Pokémon such as Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Latios, Cresselia, Tapu Lele, Latias, Necrozma, Deoxys Jirachi, Azelf, Articuno de Galar, among others, are left out.
On the other hand, not all common Pokémon were going to be able to enter this top, so only five of them have passed the short, so Espeon, Wobbuffet, Gothitelle, Reuniclus, Meowstic, Hatterene, Gallade, Alolan Raichu, Starmie, Slowbro, Bronzong, Delphox, Oranguru, among others, have been left out for very little. Therefore, without further ado, let’s go with the top of the best psychic type pokemon:
We could not start this top without what is by far the best Pokémon of the third generation, since, despite how simple it may seem due to its appearance, Wobbuffet is worth fearingsince, after all, with Sombra Trappa he is able to reduce and completely eliminate one of the game’s mechanics such as exchange, this being that it can be used in both double and individual combat.
To give an example of Doubles, if the opponent has a Bug / Flying type, if we take out Wobbuffet and a Pokémon that knows some Rock-type movement, we will see how we are facing an automatic KO, since the opponent will not even be able to change nor resist the blow that is to come. This is where you see the Wobbuffet’s enormous potential.
However, he does not have to be in Doubles to stand out, since individually he can trap the opponent and make use of Counterattack and Mirror Mantle to return moves, thus achieving that when using Otra Vez it is able to predict the rival. And in the event that it is about to fall, with Same Destiny you can take an enemy Pokémon ahead.
One of the most famous Pokémon of all time cannot miss its appearance in this top, even so Gardevoir was already good at the beginningbeing a Pokémon specially thought of on the special side, but it was reaching the sixth generation and taking out all its hidden potential, since we could see that it ended up becoming one of the best Pokémon thanks to its Mega.
This gave him enormous power, which he was capable of combining with Lunar Beam, Psychic, Psychic Charge, Bewitching Flame, Disarmament, Shadow Ball, Aural Sphere, Trick, among many others that bring out enormous potential, especially if he predicts the game well. rival and ends up taking advantage of his Ability Tracingwhich can turn the fight around.
And all this without forgetting that it is a Pokémon with Mega evolution, especially increasing its Normal-type movements, which increase its power and become Fairy-type, so a Gardevoir with Bigmouth was capable of doing great damage to any opponent even when he used Substitute.
Perhaps surprising, but, to be clear, Indeedee is very goodwhereas this Pokémon makes the allied team have a great control of the combat by activating the Psychic Field thanks to its ability, which makes it a substitute for Tapu Lele in a certain sense, but which becomes even better, since it can learn Vast Forcea powerful movement that with this field multiplies its power by 1.5.
However, Indeedee’s greatest virtue lies not only in the fact that he can attack very effectively, but also that he can be of great support to his teammates, since, in the case of being faster, he will be able to avoid priority attacks, while also helping others using Psychic-type moves see their power increased.
For all this, and having two versions per gender that give it greater versatility, being the most offensive male and the most defensive female, we have a Pokémon that manages to enter within the elite of the Psychic-type Pokémon.
We previously mentioned the top of the best Pokémon of the first generation. Needless to say, in the absence of Mewtwo, Alakazam was the best Pokémon of that generationhaving a type that destroyed everything, zero weaknesses, a very high Special and a Speed that made him unstoppable.
After this, although it is true that they nerfed it a lot, now having Paper Defenses, the truth is that Alakazam is still a great Pokemon with incredible versatility, being able to use moves like Psychic, Psycharge, Shadow Ball, True Waveamong many others while managing to last longer in combat thanks to Recovery.
And if this is combined with the Life Orb, which by its ability does nothing more than increase the power of its movements without consequences, we have a Pokémon that can destroy everything that comes your waywith very few being able to stop it if it manages to use Scheming or Peace of Mind a couple of times.
We are facing one of those tops in which from the beginning it was known which was going to be number one, being so Metagross is established as the best Psychic-type Pokémon that has never been done, this being a Pokémon that, like many others, gets the most out of its type once the fourth generation arrives with the separation of the physical and special according to each movement.
Not for nothing, although he has a high Special Attack, the truth is that this cannot be compared to his physical Attack, which means that he can take out more match to Earthquake, Meteor Punch, Thunder Punch, Zen Headbutt, among many others that do nothing more than damage the opponent without being able to do anything to diminish it thanks to Pure Body. Of course, do not think that Metagross is limited only to attack, since defensively he is also a beast.
In fact, it’s not surprising that part of the blame for the Steel-type losing its resistance to Dark and Ghost lay with handle metagross better, since after all we are facing a Pokémon that only benefited from the arrival of the Fairies, which feared them whatever the combinations of these. From far, a great pokemon who only lacks his Speed, although for that he has Agility.
