I think it does since it gains a dual STAB and can counter Poison types. --- GameFAQs: Moderating you for your opinion since 1999.

It really does. STAB on Psyshock is handy for special walls. Not to mention dat 4x Fighting resistance lets it counter every Fighting type not named Lucario and Cobalion if scarfed and switched into their Fighting STABS. --- Freiza may be cool, but his brother is.....

It doesn't counter Poison types, but I say yes, because it can demolish Venusaur. --- For those players who don't speak Australian, we have provided an English translation of the previous scene. Do you want to replay the scene? TSV: 1885

STAB Psyshock is always good. Its only weak to Ghost, Steel and Poison so there's worse typings out there. --- there's always money in the banana stand!

Having the Psychic typing allows Gardevoir to unleash psychic moves with STAB to tackle poison types that would threaten it.

Yes, Gardevoir benefits from the psychic type. --- Gamefaqs, Where poking holes in an argument is trolling.

Stab Psyshock and the occasional Poison Type you face (Venusaur as mentioned) is the only common benefit.
In a Baton Pass scenario Stab Stored Power.
But with that comes many disadvantages like Weakness to Dark (extremely common attack type with many amazing moves), Ghost (also very common), and Bug. Fairy neutralizes Bug and Dark but would be a resistance without Psychic.
Psychic is my favorite typing, and I'm happy Gardevoir is Psychic as a result, but I don't deny that Psychic is one of the worst typings in the game. --- 1. The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. 2. They're all complacent sheeple. <==]-<(-_o)>-[==>

Psychic may not be all that good by itself, but Psychic and Fairy go together like PB and Jelly.
Psychic lets Gardevoir kill Special Walls and Poisons, which would otherwise be troublesome for it, and Fairy prevents it from being meat for whatever Bug or Dark Type out there. --- This is the worst bird yet. 3DS FC 3265-6316-1192

yes, it can take out poison type easily with said typing. --- I am who i am. Don't judge me.
