Will Psychic still be OP?

Basically every pokemon game is the same. Just obtain a Psychic pokemon (Kadabra) and put him in the front of your team. Mash A to win.
Will this game be the same or do you think they will finally dethrone psychic as being the greatest type ever?

Psychic hasn't been OP since Gen 2.

Exactly. Good luck mashing A to win if your Psychic's first move is a Psychic attack and you hit a Dark-type. Especially since Kadabra has terrible defenses.

Gen VI takes away the psychic type. All leftover psychic pokemon and moves are re-assigned to new typings.

No, I heard they're adding a new type: "Dark", apparently that new type will be able to use super effective moves against psychic pokémon!
Oh, I also heard that the Ghost type is not weak to psychic attacks anymore. WTF Game Freak?

Right this talk about psychic being OP is foolish.

Where you see a means to destroy, I see a way to control--to dominate and harness the Reapers' power. Imagine how strong humanity would be if we controlled them

The Ghost type was never weak to Psychic attacks. It's just that all of the first-gen Ghost-types were also Poison-types, and Poison is weak to Psychic.

You guys are just reassuring yourself. I understand though, cause not everyone likes psychic pokemon. But Alakazam with Psybeam, Psychic, and Recover is unstoppable.

I heard they're going to make Bug and Ghost moves that are actually attacks too.
