I feel like the problem lies with how Psychic is portrayed rather than the move itself. Originally, as in the by the games, Psychic has always been a strong, tangible telekinetic blast of pure energy rather than a form of telekinesis (which given the introduction of the actual move Telekinesis, has become ever odd). A blast of energy is as easy to deal with as Thunderbolt or Flamethrower, in my opinion. If the writers/whomever characterized Psychic (and by extension, Confusion) properly, there wouldn't be any concerns to how OP it could be. What should be addressed is a proper distinction between Confusion/Psychic and Telekinesis.I can believe it honestly. Look at his win vs Visquez; he just freezes Raichu in the air, squishes and stretches it a bit, then crashes it against a wall for the KO. Move's portrayal is just overpowered.
Heck even as a fanfic writer Psychic is a pain in the neck to deal with.
