Why is Poison Psychic?

Could anyone please enlighten me on the logic behind Poison Pokémon's TCG types being changed from Grass to Psychic? It's just that Grass seems more sensible than Psychic, and I wasn't able to find any justification from anyone. The change just happened. -- Zedd 14:03, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

I'd also like to know, as I love Psychic (and Ghost) as well as Poison, and Generation 4 has spoiled some fun for me, with Psychic (Purple) becoming an over-crowded type. Punkrockrevel 08:50, 25 May 2009 (UTC)

Psychic weak to psychic?

Sorry if this is the wrong place for this, and sorry for asking a noob question. But why are Psychic type pokemon cards weak to psychic? Why not Darkness? It seems to make alot more sense... Kookamooka 23:11, 11 May 2012 (UTC)

Not all Psychic cards are weak to psychic. The ones that are were mostly Ghost-type (which is weak to psychic) in the games, as the article says. --Darth Zekrom 23:24, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
The article says Ghost pokemon are weak to Darkness and Psychic pokemon are weak to psychic. Kookamooka 23:41, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Oh and by the way, Psychic is weak against Ghost, not the other way around. Unless of course that means they're weak against Psychic TCG because of Ghost... which is silly because that means they're also weak to Psychic and poison, two types it resists. Logically it should be weak to darkness, which it's always weak to, no? Kookamooka 23:46, 11 May 2012 (UTC)
Game Psychic is TCG Psychic. Game Ghost is TCG Psychic. Game Psychics are Weak to Psychics in the card game because they are weak to Ghost. Game Ghosts are weak to Darkness in the TCG. Putting types together means, yes, things will be imperfect. Ice in the Card Game is strong against perfect. One of the major problems is being fixed by making the Dragon type.
