Will point out that Focus Energy yields no boost if it's clearing a status, while the Psychic Mental moves do yield a boost even when clearing status. Focus Energy also has harsh diminishing returns that Calm Mind and Amnesia don't have.

So honestly I think the fact that the other two use offtype while Focus Energy doesn't is made up for by the other two being distinctly better.

Therefore, if we're gonna make them all either use offtype or not use offtype, I'd argue that either Focus Energy should be made better or the others should be made worse to further codify them, since if the descripts stay the same this would be little more than a blatant Focus Energy nerf.
