    He doesn't tend to use them despite the fact he does not specialize in any one type of Pokemon. Is this just a coincidence or is there a purpose behind this?

    Because psychic types are OP.

    Psychic types are usually given to GOOD trainers. IMO, he doesn't fit that description...

    He hasn't captured a Steel or Ghost type either and I highly doubt there's a conspiracy behind that. It's just a coincidence imo.

    something telling me ash is not smart as what people think, psychic tends to be smart people right?

    Lorde has it right. It hasn't happened because it hasn't happened, that's all. Nothing says he won't catch one some time in the future either. Honestly there's nothing else to it. (unless you want to count all the joke posts in this thread as points, lol)

    Coincidence. Plain and simple.

    He did have a Haunter for a while.

    Ash catches at least 6 Pokemon per region yet never uses psychic even after he saw how badly Sabrina schooled him in Kanto. He seems to follow a pattern. He always gets a bird, fire, grass, water and electric type (Pikachu) which leaves room for one more but he never gets a psychic. It would be nice if he got a Ralts and raised it to a Gardevoir. It would be refreshing to see him incorporate a psychic style to his battling.

    He never actually captured it; it merely tagged long with him for an episode. Again, he hasn't caught a Steel or Fairy type either. It's a coincidence.

    He should just catch a Klefki. Problem solved.

    I know, it's so odd that Team Rocket has had all the psychic types (Wobbuffet, Chimecho, Mime Jr., etc.) and Ash has had zero. They've also had a lock on the ghost types compared to him too.

    I think it's indeed because it's overpowered. Psychic being able to mess with one's mind etc seems too much to handle for Ash. Ghost Pokemon also similar in some sense - they could make Ash into a ghost too. You could say that about Dark types & Dragons too. Dark has some negative connotations while Dragons are reserved for a more powerful trainer. I personally don't count Krookodile, since he is primary ground. Also Ash only trained a Gible but never could evolve it. But, I really don't see why he couldn't train a steel type. Don't see anything "wrong" in that...

    Yeah, that's a more logical reason for Ash not to have psychic types.
