Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why is Golduck a reference to Psyduck and vice-versa?

Shouldn't Psyduck be named as Golduck and Golduck named Psyduck ?

Golduck's name origin:

Golduck may be a combination of gold and duck. While Golduck itself is not colored gold, gold is often used in the Pokémon canon to symbolize the Psychic type: the Gold Gummi is the Gummi variety loved by Psychic-type Pokémon, and the Marsh Badge's Japanese name is "Gold Badge".

That pretty much explains it...
