Because 'Ghosts beat Psychics' in the anime, I'm guessing. Sabrina's Gym plus that one Orange Island episode with the Drowzee using mass-mind control where Jenny's Gastly was the only 'mon immune to it.

But that's what we have Dark-types for.

I like that rule. We're keeping that rule.

Stop trying to eliminate all of the old fossilized rules that make the ASB cool and unique. ;-;

But it makes no sense. Darks are immune to most stuff, but why Ghosts when the most common Psychic mental move (Hypnosis) is an exception?

Not actively trying to eliminate things, but it's... inconsistant.

Run with the anime where it's not broken is generally how I justify stuff like this as I've said before. If I had the "It's pokemon, I don't gotta explain shit" picture I would post it.

Wouldn't it make some weird sense if you assumed that ghosts aren't affected because they might possibly have no brains, or least what they have is considered 'dead' and thus untouchable by the living mind??

Grrr, like English language, even the ASB will have to have exceptions to whatever rule we can find/make to make things mostly understandable :P

How about 'Ghosts aren't immune to Psychic stuff because it's retarded'?

Sounds like a pretty clear rule to me.

Guys, guys, a senior LO (read: an LO who is meaningfully an LO) has stated an opinion. That opinion is the law until it is changed. Live with it.
(Or just do what I do and ignore such things as necessary)
Ghosts are on a higher plane, psychics can't work on them?

I let you all have too much say in anything anyways.

Before I came around, what Muyo said was law and that's it. So be happy that I'm allowing you to voice your opinions openly and be part of the league-making process.

Normal being immune to special ghost moves wouldn't be too bad.

(Not entirely kidding)

(Okay, yeah, I'm kidding)

> technically

By definition, the move will not work on Ghosts according to the rules. However, a number of refs may choose to ignore that so it's best to ask before hand.
