The weaknesses of Psychic-type Pokemon!
The Pokémon universe is made up of more than 800 creatures. Magical powers are complicated to grasp during a strategic match. Each Psychic-type Pokémon has its strengths and weaknesses. Discover them.
Types of Pokemon
Attacks and Pokemon are assigned to certain types. Each type of Pokemon has strengths and weaknesses in both attack and defense. During a fight, you must use Pokemon or attacks that have a type advantage over your opponent. This attack will cause much more damage compared to normal.
Indeed, a boon of a single type will give you double the normal damage, for a Water attack against a Ground-type Pokémon for example. So the perks stack, in a way that a double type perk will allow you to quadruple the damage. In any case, you will always receive a message, "It's super efficient".
Otherwise, single and double-type disadvantage will deal half and quarter normal damage to you. You will receive a message: "This is not very efficient" in the game.
There is also another advantage that you are going to get when attacking. This is the same type STAB attack bonus. It increases the power of the attack if your attacking Pokémon is of the same type as the attack used. Damage is 1.5 times normal. So a Water-type Pokémon that uses a Water-type attack against an Earth/Rock-type Pokémon will do six times normal damage.
The Psychic-type Pokémon has few strengths and few weaknesses. Moreover, in the first generation, he managed to be overpowered. Its only weakness is mainly due to a complete lack of powerful insect-type attacks. An error also occurred in the game because Ghost-type attacks had no effect on Psychic-type Pokémon.
The second generation of the game therefore fixed the bug thanks to the addition of the Dark type and other better Pokémon as well as attacks of all types.
