Abra (Japanese: ケーシィ Casey) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves into Kadabra starting at level 16, who evolves into Alakazam when traded.

Biology

Physiology

Abra is a bipedal Pokémon that loosely resembles a fox. It has two short, fox-like ears on the top of its head, and in the middle of its face, it has two eyes which are usually seen shut. It has a somewhat lighter color around its nose and mouth. Abra looks like it is wearing armor, as it has two pauldron-shaped pieces on its shoulders and and a fauld-like piece around its chest. It, like its evolutionary relatives, has three fingers on each hand, although much stubbier, and three toes, two in the front on either side, and one in the back near the ankle. It also has a tail, which is fairly thick and is the same gold color as the rest of its body, except for the brown band that is located around the top of the tail.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Possessing the ability to read minds, Abra can sense danger. When it does, it usually teleports in order to escape danger. It has been observed that once every hour, it will teleport to another location. By hypnotizing itself, it can send itself into sleep and be able to teleport while doing so. If it decides to teleport randomly, it creates the illusion of multiple copies. However, it can sometimes know some of the attacks its evolved forms know (although, they wouldn't be as strong). It also has the ability to levitate over water (though it cannot avoid moves like Earthquake), shown in the Mystery Dungeon games. Although Abra will usually flee when it is in apparent danger, they do have the ability to learn many attacks, both physical and special.

Behavior

Abra spend 18 hours a day sleeping. If it does not obtain enough sleep, it is unable to utilize its teleportation and telekinetic abilities. Despite this, Abra is capable of attacking while asleep, however, Abra usually avoid fighting by using Teleport to escape.

Trivia

  • "Hocus" was Abra's original English name.
  • Abra and its evolutions are in all the regional Pokédexes.
  • Abra and its evolutions are all named for magic words.
  • Abra is one of the few Pokémon who cannot learn STAB attacks by level-up.
  • For the first three generations, Abra was the first Pokémon alphabetically in the Pokédex. However, in the fourth generation this became Abomasnow.
  • Abra is the first Template:Type2 Pokémon in National Pokédex order.
  • Abra is one of 5 Kanto Pokémon that had its base experience yield changed in Generation III. Its former base experience was 73. The others are Machop, Geodude, Omanyte and Kabuto.
  • The only sprite of Abra in which either of its eyes are visible is its sprite from Gold and even then, it is only squinting.
  • While the Pokédex claims Abra teleport while sleeping, putting one to sleep prevents it from teleporting the same as any other Pokémon.

Origin

It is likely based on a magician. It may also be a reference to Edgar Cayce, a "sleeping prophet" who claimed to have visions in trance-like states. It also has similarities to foxes.

Name origin

Abra's name is part of an incantation used in stage magic, Abracadabra. Its Japanese name may be derived from 消し飛ぶ keshitobu, to scatter away, referring to its tendency to teleport from battle.
