A Psychic (Japanese: サイキッカー Psychicer) is a type of Pokémon Trainer that first debuted in the Generation I games. They were originally only male, but in Generation III, female Psychics started to appear. They appear as young men or young women levitating Poké Balls with their psychokinetic powers.

They obviously specialize in Psychic-type Pokémon, and also in Ghost-type Pokémon in Generations IV and V.

In the anime

A Psychic in the anime

A number of Psychics were seen in the Saffron City Gym in Abra and the Psychic Showdown.

Another Psychic appeared much later in Glory Blaze! as one of the participants of the Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition where he was partnered with a Black Belt and faced Ash and Paul in the quarter-finals. Despite the two working well as a team, they were unable to contend against the experienced Trainers and were knocked out.

A Psychic by the name of Ricky appeared in Climbing the Tower of Success!. He is based after a Psychic by the name of Bryce, appearing in the Celestial Tower in the games.

Psychic's Metagross
The Psychic used his Metagross against Ash's Turtwig and Paul's Chimchar, partnering it up with the Black Belt's Zangoose. The Psychic trained his Metagross in order to be able to use quick attacks, as well as teaching it Magnet Rise in order to protect it from Ground-type moves. Despite its power and speed, Metagross was defeated by Chimchar's Flamethrower after it had increased its fire-power thanks to Zangoose's Fire Blast.

Metagross's known moves are Bullet Punch, Magnet Rise and Psychic.

Debut Glory Blaze!

In the manga

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

In Find Munchlax!!, a female Psychic is one of the three Trainers searching for Munchlax. She uses her psychic powers to sense Munchlax's presence but only manages to find Hareta.
