It's "no weaknesses and hitting way too hard without having any drawbacks" vs "hitting way too hard without having any drawbacks".

You do the math.

Psychics were way better and were nerfed harder.

Gen I Psychic was definitely the more overcentralizing type. Doesn't mean that Gen IV/V Dragon wasn't overpowered, though. It just wasn't broken.

The fact that Special Attack & Special Defense were one stat (turning Amnesia into Nasty Plot + Amnesia) is a big reason why they were OP.
The biggest reason, though, was that they had no real weaknesses. Ghost only had Lick to hit SE (Night Shade is fixed damage). Bug only had Pin Missile and Twineedle, with the latter being on a Poison Type and the former being on a special-based Eeveelution.

Not to mention that Alakazam outsped most of the meta at the time...
