My team consists of Porygon-Z and Carracosta. I just beat the 8th gym. What Pokemon is good to train. I want a psychic type but any type will do.

More information

Carracosta was hacked and I'm playing white 2.

I would recommend Reuniclus as a good Psychic type to train. It's available easily in your game (on Route 9, but available as Solosis on Routes 5 & 16 and also in Strange House), has a very good ability (Magic Guard) and good movepool.

Item: Life Orb or Leftovers
Ability: Magic Guard
EVs: 252 HP, 252 Def, 4 Sp. Atk
Nature: Bold or Modest (is best)
- Calm Mind
- Recover
- Psychic/ Psyshock
- Focus Blast

That's a competitive set, but since you've just beaten Marlon, you might as well take some time to EV train. If you're not interested in that, Reuniclus has pretty good HP already so it's able to take a few hits. Just go and fight Audinos, they're easy to defeat, give good exp. and 2 HP EVs per faint.

For your in game (before E4) set, I would recommend

  • Psychic
  • Recover
  • Shadow Ball
  • Reflect

Since you can't get Calm Mind & Focus Blast until post E4.

Note that Solosis can have Magic Guard or Overcoat as its ability, so catch one with Magic Guard.

Gallade. Good typing. Good Moves. Psychic type :D

Alakazam is also good!
But I don't think that you can get it in white 2
you can I believe in an in game trade, but this is after you beat the game. However it may be black 2 exclusive

Try training up a Swoobat or Espeon.If not any of the eevee evolutions will do just fine!!!
