Other strong Psychic Type Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Strong Psychic-type Pokémon can be the same from game to game, and that is mostly true in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Classic Psychic-type choices like Espeon and the Ralts line of evolutions, Gallade and Gardevior, are always safe bets for players needing a strong Psychic-type attacker.


Espeon is a part of the Eevee evolutions and stands as one of the better Psychic-type Pokémon in the franchise. Espeon has decent stats all-around and has a really impressive special attack.

    • Attack: 65
    • Special Attack: 130
    • Defense: 60
    • Special Defense: 95
    • Speed: 110


Gardevoir has a great special attack stat and resistance to Psychic and Fighting-type moves. It also has complete immunity to Dragon-type moves, which can come in handy as Dragon-type Pokémon are often among the most powerful.

    • Attack: 65
    • Special Attack: 125
