Dark-Type Pokemon were introduced in Gen 2 and at the time Ghost -Type moves had no effect on Psychic-Types at all which is weird why in the anime it says Ghost-Types had an advantage. So Ash couldn't capture a Dark-Type Pokemon at the time.

All of Physic type weaknessses are fears in real life
SomePeople are afraid Bugs the Dark and Ghost that is truly a fun fact..

Dude, the only added information there, was a " Fun Fact " Which are sometimes interesting, but doesn't contribute to the answer of the question as " Added Information ".
