Malamar is a Psychic and Dark type Pokemon introduced in the Kalos region. The anime features a group of three evil Malamar abducting and brainwashing Officer Jenny and other humans and Pokemon, in an attempt to take over the world. It is also the evolved form of Inkay; the first Kalos Pokemon caught by Team Rocket. I've never used a Malamar for a full playthrough, but I would love to. Unfortunately their stats aren't up to much, but their backstory and design is just so fascinating.
The original event legendary Pokemon ends up here. The mystery of Pokemon; Mew. Does anyone know how Mew came about? Does anyone really know anything about Mew? Honestly, I don't. Mew was the OG. A mysterious but also cute Pokemon with an even 600 BST. An adorable personality but there's just something that doesn't resonate with me. Maybe it's the lack of availability, maybe it's the weak bitch effect when compared to the real Psychic legendary of Gen 1. Maybe the producers of the original game felt the same, since Mew wasn't meant to be in Red and Blue until a late minute change.
One of the most underrated Psychic type Pokemon to exist. It also has a great Normal typing which gives Girafarig a lovely Ghost-type immunity. I feel like Girafarig could have more to be desired with her base stats, but the use of Sap Sipper could become pretty nice for in-game. I haven't actually used Girafarig in game, bar one or two rare occasions, but I really love the Pokemon design. A beautiful and clean-cut design.
Let me begin by saying Lugia should not even be on this list. This is where having 3 potential typings would come in handy. Lugia is hailed as the beast of the seas and the guardian of whirlpools. There is absolutely no reason why Lugia should not be Water type; apart from a crippling 4x weakness to electric attacks. This could easily be rectified by the use of a primal or mega form with a Water/Flying typing, and a new ability referencing The Power of One; and making Lugia neutral to Ice, Electric and Fire. Let's also take a moment to remember Lugia's song, 'The Power of One'. Lugia is also noteable as his role as XD001 in Gale of Darkness; the powerful ship destroying Shadow Pokemon.
My absolute favorite starter Pokemon of the whole six generations. Generation VI brought Pokemon back to prominence and amazing designs overall; something which the prior 2 (and to an extent 3) generations lacked. An absolute stunner. Yes, it would have been better on four legs, but we already had enough Digimon copying going on in Kalos; the next thing we need is a Kyubimon crossover. Delphox embodies everything I love about Psychic types; powerful and smart, with an element of mystery and evil. Hopefully, she'll receive a mega evolution in the never-coming Pokemon Z!
An absolute legend. There is a reason Alakazam used to be FEARED. Alakazam is the original trade evolution Pokemon and one of my favorites since the good old days of Pokemon Red and Blue; even if I was never able to actually obtain one and had to stick with good old Kadabra. It's mega evolution in X and Y is extremely frightening with his 175 base Special Attack. Alakazam is given decent coverage from the use of Shadow Ball, Dazzling Gleam and Energy Ball, outside of Psychic. Charge Beam is also handy in certain team situations to boost Special Attack (especially as an in-game player who doesn't like to use set up moves, i.e. Calm Mind). It's a bit of a shame he can't learn Thunderbolt like Gengar can though. Alakazam is a wise old fool and that's why I adore him.
Such an adorable Pokemon; and for a legendary as well. Celebi was the star of the fourth Pokemon movie, alongside the majestic Suicune. Showing compassion, cuteness and just general beautiful design, this adorable Grass / Psychic combination ends up here. Realistically, there's no way Celebi would go any higher on this list as the top 3 are actually my top 3 favorite Pokemon ever. Celebi is a cute ball of energy and I adore her and always have. It was a great gift alongside Pokemon Bank.
Featuring at the top spot in my Water-Type Pokemon countdown, Starmie ends up here at #3 in the Psychic-Type countdown. It's also my 3rd favorite Pokemon of all time. An amazing in-game Pokemon with very little resistant from any enemy team using the powerful combination of Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt and Psychic. Starmie has just gotten better and better throughout the generations and I pray to Arceus that one day we will have a mega evolution because L'oreal; she's worth it.
"WHAT!" I hear you all shout at your laptop screens as the Pokemon in my avi is not the #1 choice. Espeon is my favorite non-legendary Pokemon, that's for sure, and it's one of the most adorable and cutest Pokemon there is; it's based off a cat after all. If I wanted a pet from the Pokemon world, Espeon would probably be the one. Like all eeveelutions, Espeon is no slouch, but in particular is definitely one of the strongest of them all. With a respectable 130 Special Attack and 110 Speed, Espeon is such a powerful threat all emerging from this little cute cat, and with access to Psychic, Shadow Ball, Dazzling Gleam and even recovery in the vein of Morning Sun, Espeon is one to be feared.
This really should have been no surprise to anyone. Mewtwo is my ultimate favorite Pokemon and therefore is my favorite Psychic type too. He's such a legendary iCON that he didn't just receive one mega evolution, no, he received TWO. And guess what? He's also the next big star of Pokken Tournament receiving a Shadow Pokemon form there too. Mewtwo is everything that Mew failed to be. Amnesia was so broken in Gen 1, and while not as broken any more, Mewtwo received such a buff in Kalos with the Mewtwonite Y boosting his base Special Attack to a whopping unboosted 194. Just remind everyone who the true Pokemon god is, coz everyone and their grandmother knows it ain't that failed design from Generation Four.
