This article is about the TCG type. For the Trainer class that appeared in the TCG, see Seer (Aquapolis 133).

The Psychic type (Japanese: Psychic) is one of the eleven TCG types. It is represented by the color purple, and symbolized by an open eye.

The Psychic type contains most Psychic- and Ghost-type Pokémon found in the main series video games. For example, Alakazam and Cofagrigus are Psychic types in the TCG.

From the Diamond & Pearl set until the Sword & Shield set, Poison-type Pokémon were grouped in with the Psychic type. For example, any Garbodor cards printed during this time would have been Psychic types in the TCG. Previously, Poison types were grouped in with Grass, and they are now grouped in with Darkness.

Additionally, starting in Sword & Shield, Fairy-type Pokémon are now grouped in with the Psychic type instead of having their own energy type. For example, Alcremie is a Psychic type in the TCG.

The corresponding Basic Energy card is Psychic Energy.
