>Red
Blue
Incredibly slow and dopey. It takes 5 seconds for it to feel pain when under attack.
Yellow
Incredibly slow and sluggish. It is quite content to loll about without worrying about the time.
Gold
It lazes vacantly near water. If something bites its tail, it won't even notice for a whole day.
Silver
A sweet sap leaks from its tail's tip. Although not nutritious, the tail is pleasant to chew on.
Crystal
It is always so absent-minded that it won't react, even if its flavorful tail is bitten.
Ruby
Sapphire
SLOWPOKE uses its tail to catch prey by dipping it in water at the side of a river. However, this POKéMON often forgets what it’s doing and often spends entire days just loafing at water’s edge.
FireRed
It is always vacantly lost in thought, but no one knows what it is thinking about. It is good at fishing with its tail.
LeafGreen

In the thing above, my theory is that slowpoke uses its mind to "not feel the pain" if something bites its tail. Hopefully this answers your question. Hope I helped!(ish)

It's ability to ignore pain might as well be because it's deep in thought, as stated in the FR definition.
So maybe that's why it's psychic: it's always in deep thought.
