So you came here hoping to find out which psychic Pokemon is the best of all time? Well, you’re in luck!
Here at BeStreamer, we’ve done the research and compiled a list of the top psychic Pokemon of all time.
From classic favorites like Mewtwo to newer additions like Lycanroc, there’s sure to be a psychic Pokemon that’s perfect for you.
They don’t look like much, but you’d be a fool to get anywhere near a Malamar. These devious Pokémon are known for taking control of their opponents and forcing them to do their bidding. And they’re not easy to stop once they’ve gotten started.
Malamar were introduced in Pokémon X & Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS, and they quickly became one of the most popular Pokémon in the games. Their Japanese name is “Calamanero”, which is a combination of the words for “evil” and “calamari”.
That’s fitting, because these Pokémon are like a cross between a jellyfish, a squid, and a bird. But don’t let their cute appearance fool you – Malamar are extremely powerful. In fact, they’re said to be the most powerful of all Pokémon. So if you see one coming, be sure to run the other way!
Don’t let their cute exterior fool you – these guys are ruthless if you cross them. The Mesprit is a legendary psychic-type Pokemon that is a member of the lake guardians.
They can leave their body or transport themselves and others at will, so they’re not to be messed with. And despite their small stature (they’re just one foot tall), they can pack a powerful punch.
They can drain a person’s emotions or just throw your emotional state into a blender. So, yeah – not so cute after all, huh? You definitely want these guys on your side if you’re looking for a battle.
When it comes to pure thievery, very few Pokemon can compare to Hoopa. This little creature has the ability to bend dimensions and send objects through space, making it practically impossible to stop.
In fact, the only way to keep Hoopa in check is to imprison it within a special containment orb. Even then, Hoopa is still incredibly dangerous, as it has the power to summon anything it desires from other dimensions.
From a purely practical perspective, it’s easy to see why Hoopa is considered one of the most dangerous Pokemon in existence. But what about from a cultural perspective? Well, in many ways, Hoopa embodies the spirit of punk rock.
It’s rebellious, dangerous, and unafraid to take what it wants. In a sense, you could say that Hoopa is the ultimate manifestation of anarchy. And that’s why, despite its criminal tendencies, we can’t help but admire this little Pokemon.
Lunala is a creatures that players encounter in the video game Pokemon Moon. It is the final evolution of a Cosmog and boasts a massive and impressive wingspan.
Catching Lunala is considered to be a high point for any player, as it is both powerful and rare. In addition to being a fearsome opponent in battle, Lunala is also beautiful to look at – its design is inspired by bats, with moonlight-colored fur and large, luminous eyes.
If you’re lucky enough to catch one, take good care of your Lunala – it’ll be a treasured member of your team for sure.
When it comes to powerful and legendary Pokémon, few can match the might of Metagross. This massive Steel/Psychic-type Pokémon is the result of two Metang fusing together, and as a result, it boasts an impressive four brains.
While this may seem like overkill, it actually makes Metagross one of the most intelligent Pokémon around, rivaling even the most powerful supercomputers.
In addition to its incredible intelligence, Metagross also boast a massive strength, making it more than capable of taking on even the strongest foes. However, Metagross isn’t all brawn and no brain – it also has the ability to use a variety of psychic powers, making it a truly fearsome opponent. If you’re lucky enough to have a Metagross on your team, you’ll be well on your way to becoming a champion!
The Lugia is a massive and intimidating Psychic/Flying-type Pokemon that was introduced in Generation II. It is quite rare to see a Lugia, as they usually prefer to stay deep in the ocean, only emerging to protect their young.
The Lugia is the leader of the Legendary birds (Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres), and is known for its wisdom and incredible power. In Pokémon Silver, Pokémon SoulSilver, and Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, Lugia is the official mascot, and it is easy to see why – this is a Pokemon that demands respect!
Deoxys is a Mythical Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III. It has four different Formes, which it changes between using the power of DNA.
Deoxys’s father is an unknown creature from space known as the “parent” Deoxys. It can be encountered as a boss in Sootopolis City in its Normal Forme, but its other Formes must be encountered as a Gryphon. In Generation III, it was only available as an event Pokémon, but it became available to purchase with PokéCoins in Generation VII.
The Deoxys is a very powerful Pokémon and should not be messed with. It has the ability to regenerate body parts lost in combat and can clone itself to create minions. It is best to just keep your distance from this Pokémon.
6. Galarian Slowking
Don’t let their odd appearance fool you; these guys are pretty gnarly. A Slowking is actually two Pokemon in one, as they are actually a Shellder Pokémon taking a ride on the head of a Slowpoke as a sort of helmet/remote control.
The Shellder as a venomous bite that causes extraordinary intelligence and psychic power in the Slowpoke… resulting in a Slowking. A Slowking is very thoughtful, methodical, and plans their attack. A Galarian Slowking is an evolution of the standard Slowking from Galar as introduced in the Pokémon Sword and Shield 1.3.0 update.
These are a more intense version of the Slowking, as they are being loaded up with a more potent venom from the Shellder. These dual-type Poison/Psychic Pokemon get ultra intelligent, and are known to chant incoherent spells. The bottom line is, don’t judge a book by its cover… or in this case, a Pokémon by its appearance. The Slowking may not look like much, but it’s definitely one to be reckoned with.
Ah yes; this one is probably pretty obvious for any and all Pokemon fans. Mew. These gender-less cuties are a mythical Pokemon from Gen 1, and it is said that they contain the DNA of every other Pokemon.
And of course, if you know your Pokemon history, you know that the absolute boss that is Mewtwo is the direct descendant/clone of a Mew… but like… gone horribly wrong thanks to dumb humans.
But the original Mews are smart, curious, playful, and caring. Oh, and super cute. All good qualities. You’re crazy if you think we aren’t including Mew on any “best” Pokemon list where they fit. And as one of the coolest psychic Pokemon, they absolutely have a spot on today’s list.
4. Mega Alakazam
Even among Pokemon, Alakazam stands out as being particularly intense. They have a moustache, and they carry around two silver spoons to amplify their psychic powers.
Even the females have a moustache, which just adds to their intimidating appearance. But it’s the Mega evolution, Mega Alakazam, that is truly impressive. Not only does it have a full beard, but it also carries around a whole dinner set worth of spoons (five, to be exact).
It is said that Mega Alakazam can read a person’s entire lifeline in one single glance. There are no secrets that will escape its gaze. And, Mega Alakazam remembers every single thing it ever experiences. Its head literally just keeps growing because it’s so full of information and intelligence.
With an IQ of over 5,000, these Pokemon are true nerds. Psychic nerds; that’s freakin’ awesome.
Ah yes, the Necrozma; a Legendary psychic Pokémon introduced in Gen 7 as the official mascot for Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
There is no predecessor to a Necrozma, but they do have three possible additional forms: Dusk Mane Necrozma (Psychic/Steel), Dawn Wings Necrozma (Psychic/Ghost), and Ultra Necrozma (Psychic/Dragon). A Necrozma’s body is made up of black crystals and it’s face is a brain prism.
They can essentially consume a Solgaleo or Lunala and entirely cover their body, becoming a sort of armor/remote control of them. And they absorb the energy of their host until they have enough power to return to their true form: the Ultra Necrozma.
The Ultra Necrozma is the largest psychic-type Pokémon there is, and its body exceeds 10,000 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mewtwo is a legendary Pokémon that was introduced in Generation 1. They were created through cruel experiments on a Mew by greedy scientists.
As a result, Mewtwo is incredibly powerful and has a deep hatred for humans. Despite this, Mewtwo is one of the most popular Pokémon of all time. This is due to their unique backstory and their impressive power.
In the Pokémon world, Mewtwo is feared by many trainers due to their strength and lack of empathy. However, they are also respected for their incredible power. As a result, Mewtwo is one of the most iconic and well-loved Pokémon of all time.
1. Mega Mewtwo Y
The results are in, and Mega Mewtwo Y is officially the best psychic Pokemon of all time!
Mewtwo could have easily taken the number one spot… but when you take a Pokemon that awesome and Mega Evolve them… aw dang. Beware!!!
Using a Mewtwonite, the special Mega Stone for a Mewtwo specifically, you can transform your Mewtwo into a male or female Mega Mewtwo.
So why is the female (Y) version of the Mega Mewtwo the superior of the two?
Even though the males come with brute strength (Attack 190 > Attack 150) and a 30 point advantage in defense as well (100>70), it’s the female who has a higher Special Attack (194>154), Special Defense (120>100) AND speed (140>130).
Add to that her slightly better resistances thanks to her more slender frame (-10 Grass, -10 Bug vs -20 Fighting, -20 Ground for males), and she’s just too good. So choose wisely when mega-evolving your Mewtwo!
