Apparition with absurd psy defence?

Apparition is essentially immune to all physical attacks, is 'weak' to mental attacks, but has 4294967292 psy defence o.O

Though the other apparition only has 0 psy defence

Edit: it turns out psy attacks still hit it for normal damage, so not sure what's going on.

Its a 32 bit integer meaning either -4 or the number you see depending what meaning you put into the most significant bit.

Plainly said, it is a visual bug. Consider they got -4 psy defense, so psy attacks deal increased damage on them.

Nope! Psy defense has no influence on resistances, and never has. Psy Defense is usually used to determine how effective a character is at healing and protecting others. In previous games max health was directly tied to a character's psy defense, but never how well they resist mental attacks.
