A majority of the time, you’ll be able to find Psychic-type Pokémon near the beach or close to the water. You’ll want to visit the border of a landmass to find them. Alternatively, you’ll also want to visit the middle of forests out in the wild to find Psychic-types. Another good tactic is to wait for certain Psychic-type Pokémon to appear in raids, such as Espurr, frequently offered as one-star raid Pokémon.

You’re likely going to need to work hard to find Psychic-type Pokémon, but they’re much easier to locate than Dragon-types. If you’re struggling in locations that do have Psychic-types, try placing incense on your character or activating a lure on a nearby PokéStop to increase your chances.
