How to defend against Psychic-type Pokémon
These are all the Pokémon types that are super effective to Psychic-type Pokémon.
If you have a Pokémon that uses any of these attacks, it will be highly effective against a Psychic-type Pokémon. Of these options, we recommend focusing on Dark or Ghost-type Pokémon. A Ghost-type can be extremely strong against a Psychic-type. Still, a Dark-type will likely be the best option because their attacks are super effective against Psychic-types, and they’re resistant to Psychic-type attacks, to a point where they take less than 40% of Psychic-type damage in a battle. It makes them incredibly strong to use against this Pokémon. However, they are not the only type resistant to Psychic-types.
