Characteristics

Defense

Prior to Generation VI, Steel/Psychic types were exempt from Psychic's three weaknesses, but since Steel no longer resists Dark and Ghost, this is no longer the case.

Offense

A drawback of Psychic-type moves is that they do not affect Dark-type Pokémon, although this immunity can be removed with Miracle Eye. The immunity, along with resistances to Psychic, can also be circumvented with coverage moves such as Ground-type attacks.

When Psychic Terrain is in effect, the power of Psychic-type moves are increased by 30% (50% prior to Generation VIII) if the user is on the ground.
