The name of the PSI, usually followed by a space and then padded with null bytes to fill the space. Power level symbols (the Greek characters α (alpha), β (beta), γ (gamma), Σ (sigma), and Ω (omega)) are added later according to the PSI Abilities Table.
Regarding the Special PSI
The string table hard-coded in EarthBound shows the first entry as "PSI ????". However, an ASM routine at 0x01C60F acts as a functional override, which uses the "PSI Favorite thing" string stored in the game's save memory. The value at this location can be changed to override any of the entries in this list. Changing the value to 00 will effectively disable the override.
