Kadabra (Japanese: ユンゲラー Yungerer) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Abra starting at level 16, and evolves into Alakazam by trade.

Biology

Physiology

A Kadabra is characterized by its human-like body structure and its somewhat fox-like appearance. It has two large ears of the top of either side of its head, a red star-shaped symbol of its forehead (derived from Zener cards), and two somewhat sinister looking eyes in the middles of its face. Its eyes lead down to its nose and mouth and its relatively large mustache that grows out on the narrower section of its face. On both of its arms, there are brown colored pauldron shape sections that are located on the shoulder region of its body. Its arms are fairly thin and consist of Kadabra's regular yellow-hued skin. Its hands each have three fingers, of which all each have a large white claw attached. Its torso consists of a brown colored section of body similar to a fauld and an insect like abdomen below it, which has three red wavy lines (also derived from the Zener cards). Attached to this abdomen is a huge, thick tail, which is mostly yellow with a band of brown circling it. Its legs are very thin and also yellow colored. Its feet each have three toes, two in the front on each side, and one in the back near the ankle. Each of these toes has a large white claw attached to it.

Gender differences

A female has a shorter moustache.

Special abilities

Kadabra emits alpha waves when using its psychic powers that induce headaches to those near it. These waves strangely cause clocks to run backwards and machines to malfunction. The amplitude of the waves are doubled when Kadabra is holding its spoon and increased even further when Kadabra closes its eyes. Kadabra, and its evolution, Alakazam, are the only known Pokémon that learn Kinesis.

Behavior

Habitat

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

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Sabrina, the Gym Leader of Saffron City, has a Kadabra that evolved from an Abra in Abra and the Psychic Showdown.

In Fear Factor Phony, a Kadabra was living in an abandoned mining colony with several other Psychic-type Pokémon.

In the manga

Like her anime counterpart, Sabrina in Pokémon Special also owns a Kadabra, that makes its first appearance in chapter 27.

In the TCG

Pokédex entries

This Pokémon was unavailable prior to Generation I.
Generation I
Red It emits special alpha waves from its body that induce headaches just by being close by.
Blue
Yellow Many odd things happen if this Pokémon is close by. For example, it makes clocks run backwards.
Stadium When it uses psychic power, all its brain cells work in unison to generate powerful alpha waves.
Generation II
Gold It possesses strong spiritual power. The more danger it faces, the stronger its psychic power.
Silver If it uses its abilities, it emits special alpha waves that cause machines to malfunction.
Crystal When it closes its eyes, twice as many alpha particles come out of the surface of its body.
Stadium 2 It possesses strong spiritual power. The more danger it faces, the stronger its psychic power.
Generation III
Ruby Kadabra emits a peculiar alpha wave if it develops a headache. Only those people with a particularly strong psyche can hope to become a Trainer of this Pokémon.
Sapphire Kadabra holds a silver spoon in its hand. The spoon is used to amplify the alpha waves in its brain. Without the spoon, the Pokémon is said to be limited to half the usual amount of its telekinetic powers.

FireRed It happened one morning - a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into Kadabra.

Trivia

  • "Pocus" was Kadabra's original English name.
  • Kadabra is one of the few Pokémon that loses weight after it evolves. Others include Porygon to Porygon2, Gloom to Bellossom, and Gligar to Gliscor.
  • Kadabra has what appears to be a bulge in the back of its head in Generation I sprites. This seems to have been dropped in subsequent generations. On the other hand, it may have been a side effect of the poor quality of the backsprites in the first generation.
  • In Pokémon Red (Japanese), Green and Silver sprites, Kadabra is holding its spoon in its left hand, while in the other sprites it is holding in the other hand.
  • In Kadabra's Red, Green, and Blue sprites, the red five-pointed star is missing from its forehead.

Origin

Kadabra is based on a magician or someone who purports to bend spoons psychically, such as Uri Geller. It also has similarities to foxes.

Name origin

Kadabra's name is part of an incantation used in stage magic, Abracadabra. Its Japanese name is a reference to the magician Uri Geller, replacing the ri character with the visually similar n character. Uri Geller claimed to have the ability to bend spoons with his mind, which is probably why Kadabra carries a spoon. Geller attempted to make a case against Nintendo of America for using his likeness in a character and lost.
