I'm really deep into the game, have all the fancy sign of any psi powers???? Do I need to capture a specific alien or maybe use the toilet on one of their supply barges to get this???? Help an old guy out here, please.

It comes over time, as you complete "main" objectives.


You NEED at least 1 psi-soldier to advance the story at some point, so don't worry about it.

Now that I think about it, it does unlock pretty late, I didn't even get the chance to fully level a psi soldier manually before the end game.

How to get psi abilities:
After a while you'll get the chance to build a facility (forgot the specific name) where you can 'test' your soldiers for psi-aptitude, which takes a few days.

In order to get psionics... Spoiler:
you have to zap a sectoid commander with an arc thrower. Interogate him and then research psionics. Then build a psi-lab and start probing your soldiers.

The determination if a soldier is Psychic is done at the moment you begin testing them and seems to be randomly determined. I tried saving on the final day of testing and the outcome was identical for the three soldier each time over 10 reloads. I had one sniper I wanted to by psychic.. so I just tested him. Waited 10 days and reloaded if he failed the test and on the third reload he came up positive.
