Psychic is weak against bug because bugs are a common fear, like ghosts and darkness, the other two weaknesses of psychic.
Dark is weak against fighting because justice prevails over evil, ie Superhero beats up bad guy.
Poison is weak against psychic because of the saying "mind over matter" The same applies to psychic and fighting.
Dark is weak against bug because bugs thrive in the shadows.

Another reason why bugs Pokemon are strong against dark Pokemon is kinda like how mosquitoes kill blacks in Africans.

what does poison and matter have in relation with each other?

I like to see it in the way that a strong mind defeats poisonous thoughts. Or basically it's smart not to give in to impure(poisonous) acts

I think it has something to do with those trained monks who can "cure" their own diseases by power of will or whatever.

Oh, seems like kind of a stretch though.

Don't ask me, I don't work at GameFreak.

Anon's suggestion seems more logical

I never thought of it in that way. But if it was that way, I'd see it more like poison being SE against psychic, because poisonous thoughts corrupt minds.

But then that's more dark than poison in my perspective.

Psychic weaknesses are based off of fears
Dark, Ghost, and Bugs are common fears

Dark is done because bad guys always get beat up

The mind creates antidotes to beat poisons

I have no idea.

The average human is afraid of bugs, for the first one.

The rest is to balance out the game.
If it was realistically done, some types would be OP as **** .

True, but the average human isn't psychic.
User avatar #36 to #34 - bloodeyes (06/25/2013) [-]
psychic types have highly developed psyches, mentality for the pure point, and a lot of human psyches start to process fear over it

it is actually very realistic with that combo, because of the way bugs look, the psyche automatically perceives it as scary or dangerous, therefore, weakness.

read a book and stay in school.

Psychic represents the mind in this context.
