"Psychic will not be able to lower the opponent's Special Defense if it has a stat level of -6". Isn't that sort of redundant, because Growl can't reduce a Pokemon's attack if it's already down 6 levels, too. --ZellMurasame 01:46, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Exactly. That applies to all the raise/lower thingies, which is why they're all here. TTEchidnaGSDS! 02:58, 24 December 2007 (UTC)


Dude, there's like, 10 of them. Do we really need all of them, seriously? I mean, after seeing the first couple 3 you see that their eyes glow and lift up the opponent. Tina δ 00:02, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Yes, but the eyes glow different colors. Though usually it's blue, Alakazam's glows red. --Theryguy512 00:08, 29 December 2007 (UTC)
Still though. You can just describe it in the description.. we don't need a picture for _everything_.. Tina δ 00:12, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

In the Anime

Hey guys, how come Mewtwo isn't mentioned in the anime section? He's probably the most famous example of this move in use. - Buddy Christ

Because no one's been able to get a screenshot from Mewtwo Strikes Back. Got one? TTEchidnaGSDS! 01:03, 27 February 2008 (UTC)

Double Team

Would the user's pokemon be able use psychic to pick out the original opposer's pokemon, if their kept on using double team .--Japhes (talk) 21:25, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Why is Staryu's name italicized on the "learned by level up" section?

If it only learns psychic by level up in ORAS, shouldn't the section on the table be partially filled in? sumwun (talk) 01:52, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

It's italicized because Starmie is Water/Psychic. glikglak 02:34, 24 January 2016 (UTC)
It's in the footer of the template: "Italics indicates a Pokémon whose evolution or alternate form receives STAB from this move."--ForceFire 06:48, 26 January 2016 (UTC)

Latest edits

First, at FinnishPokéFan92, lets just ignore you're unfair grudge against me. 1: It's light purple, purple isn't that that bright. 2: The description is fine, so that's just being petty. 3: We usually list the user as the owner of the Pokemon and a Performer owns the Honchkrow. 4: The Pokemon that use it are MEGA Alakazam and MEGA Gengar, it makes sense to list them as such, but I'll leave that as they are for now, but I'm sure they should be changed and maybe they will at a later date. So if you have any reason to change those 3 things, except for your bias, please say why here. Playerking95 (talk) 06:36, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

You shouldn't have re-re-re-reverted before having everything sorted out here first, btw. You know, to avoid these terrifying things called "edit wars". --Froggy25 (talk) 17:17, 21 July 2016 (UTC)
It wasn't a re-re-re-revert, if that's even a thing and I never technically reverted anything, I just changed things and I did at least bring a discussion here, because since I don't see what was wrong with my original edit, except maybe for listing them as Mega Alakazam and Genvar, then I think the edit should stay until an actual reason can be brought here. If there is, I or someone else will change it and if not, then it stays. Playerking95 (talk) 18:38, 21 July 2016 (UTC)

Slowbro learn level is wrong

Just noticed that the level Slowbro learns Psychic at in gen IV is incorrect. Not sure if there are any others, but 49 is definitely wrong for slowbro in that gen. - unsigned comment from CrassKal (talkcontribs)

Thank you for noticing! According to its Gen IV learnset, it indeed learns Psychic at level 54, which I have corrected. (I also noticed that there was another inconsistency for Slowpoke, and corrected it as well.) If you find any errors in the future, feel free to just correct them yourself.
