Psychic (Japanese: サイコキネシス Psychokinesis) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation I. It is TM29 in Generation I through Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon and in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and was TM40 in Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! and TR11 in Pokémon Sword and Shield. It can be upgraded to the special Z-Move Genesis Supernova by Mew holding Mewnium Z.

Effect

Generation I

Psychic does damage and has a 33.2% chance of lowering the target's Special by one stage.

Generation II onwards

Psychic now has a 10% chance of lowering the target's Special Defense by one stage.

Psychic can be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining an extra appeal point if any of the moves Calm Mind, Confusion, or Kinesis was used in the prior turn. It can also be used to start a combination, causing certain moves (Confusion, Future Sight, Kinesis, and Teleport) to have their base appeal points doubled if used in the next turn.
