Alakazam (Japanese: フーディン Foodin) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Kadabra by trade. It is the final form of Abra.

Biology

Physiology

Alakazam is characterized by its human-like body structure and its somewhat fox-like appearance.

Gender differences

A female has a shorter moustache.

Special abilities

It is said that Alakazam is known to have mastered every type and form of psychic ability, including, but not limited to, telekinesis, telepathy, telempathy, psionic abilities, levitation, defensive techniques, mind control, and telekinetic blasts. It can remember everything, and has an I.Q. of 5,000.

Alakazam, and its pre-evolution, Kadabra, are the only known Pokémon that learn Kinesis.

Behavior

Each Alakazam carries two spoons everywhere it goes. These spoons are said to increase this Pokémon's psychic ability greatly. It is also a known fact that Alakazam's IQ is around 5000, and are considered to be the second most intelligent Pokémon. It is also said that they have excellent memory, and can remember everything from the moment they were born.

Habitat

Alakazam live in urban areas, close to humans. Mostly they are found in abandoned buildings left to disrepair.

Diet

In the anime

A giant Alakazam was awakened near the site of the Pokémopolis ruins in The Ancient Puzzle of Pokémopolis.

An Alakazam belonging to Rudy made a cameo appearance in Misty Meets Her Match.

Alakazam also made an appearance in Pokémon Double Trouble. This Alakazam was used by Luana, the Gym Leader of Kumquat Island, in a double battle against Ash.

Gary Oak was seen battling an Alakazam with his new Umbreon in Power Play. He has an Alakazam that he may or may not have caught as an Abra or a Kadabra. This Alakazam was seen in Gary's profile in The Ties that Bind!.

Alakazam appeared under the ownership of Eusine in For Ho-Oh the Bells Toll and The Legend of Thunder!.

Vito Winstrate had his Alakazam stop his grandmother's Camerupt's rampage in Candid Camerupt!.

An Alakazam was living in abandoned mining colony with several other Psychic Pokémon in Fear Factor Phony.

Anabel uses an Alakazam in Talking a Good Game and Second Time's the Charm.

Kenny uses his Alakazam in the first round of the Floaroma Pokémon Contest in Settling a Not-So-Old Score!. It made a wonderful performance using Light Screen, Shadow Ball, Teleport, and Hidden Power which helped Kenny get through to the next round.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

Alakazam debuts in Buzz Off, Electabuzz! when Red frees the Pokémon kidnapped by Lt. Surge; instead of his beloved Abra, the President of the Pokémon Fan Club finds himself with a not-so-cute Alakazam.

In Template:PSV, after Red's aptitude test to be the Gym Leader of Viridian City, a swarm of wild Pokémon suddenly appear outside the Gym after being attracted by Pokémon March music, one of which is an Alakazam. Green captures all of them with his Scizor. Alakazam is seen again in Template:PSV as part of Green's team for the Gym Leader faceoff, and again in Template:PSV as one of the Pokémon in Viridian Gym. It defeated Chuchu easily using a combination of Role Play and ThunderPunch.

Trivia

  • Alakazam weighs less than Kadabra, possibly because Alakazam lacks a tail, which Kadabra has.
  • Alakazam is believed to be the second smartest Pokémon, after Uxie.
  • Although somewhat hard to see, Alakazam had the Star of David on its forehead in its Pokémon Red and Green frontal sprite.
  • In Generation I back sprites, Alakazam's two spoons are not visible. One spoon is visible in its Generation II and III back sprites and both spoons are seen in Generation IV back sprites.

Origin

Alakazam's spoons are a reference to the magician Uri Geller, who claimed to have the ability to bend spoons with his mind. See the article on Kadabra for more information. Like Abra and Kadabra, Alakazam shares physical traits with foxes.

Name origin

Alakazam's name is another incantation used in stage magic, similar to Abracadabra. Its Japanese name can be spelled Houdin, and is probably a reference to Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin or Harry Houdini, who were both famous magicians.
