I understand why all the other types are weak against the other (Well except Ice beating dragon) but still... why is this? Can someone explain this?

For the Ice beating Dragon.

Dragons are reptiles.

Reptiles are cold blooded.

Cold blooded animals do NOT do well in the cold, to say the least.

As for Psychic>Poison, no idea.

Ok, thanks. that explains the dragon's ice, but not psychic's poison.

Dragons/Dinosaurs didn't live through the Ice Age, which is why Ice is SE against Dragon.

Best answer: Game Freak said so.

Lol at that "when you use brainpower, you can get rid of pollution" answer. with that logic Psychic can beat any type.

Psychics are the "Esper-type" in Japan. Espers have a wider range of powers than American perceptions of psychics, which often includes healing.

Essentially, epsers can purge poison.
