Lawsuit

Wasn't that case thrown out because he sued Nintendo of AMERICA, who had nothing to do with it? - unsigned comment from Blackjack Gabbiani (talkcontribs)

I think he lost the case (throw out isn't the same as lose, but I'm not sure what happened here) - but yes, he sued in America. - 振霖T 08:04, 27 Mar 2005 (UTC)

I've heard that there is some controversy over Kadabra having a star on his forehead and a lightning bolts symbol on his abdomen, both of which are used by the Nazi SS. I was also sitting in class today when I realized something. Isn't odd that both Kadabra and Alakazam have five points on their head, ie. the form of an inverted pentagram? -Ragnarok7038

Alakazam has no pentagram on its head. Kadabra has a star. If a star is suddenly an "occult inverted pentagram", well then the US flag is covered in them. Oh-em-gees, occult in my Christian nation? As for "lightning bolts", um, the Nazis had two of those S things for their secret police. If you look at every wavy line as if it's "OMG NAZI GASP" then you're just crazy. TTEchidna 05:15, 16 November 2007 (UTC)

I didn't say that I interpreted it as Nazi symbols, I was referring to a controversy that has arisen elsewhere. And the star on Kadabra's forehead isn't the inverted pentagram, his head is. Look at the shape. -Ragnarok7038

...now that is a stretch. I mean, if Kadabra's head is an inverted pentagram, then so are the heads of all foxes. And controversy always arises from super-fearful parents. The easiest way to kill something is to compare it to Hitler. TTEchidna 01:20, 19 November 2007 (UTC)

Kinesis

If Kinesis is Kadabra's signature move, it should be added to its moveset. But I'm not sure on which level. - unsigned comment from Pokeresp (talkcontribs)

On GTS

Is Kadabra being the only unsearchable Pokemon on GTS.net noteworthy trivia? --Pizzaman 03:43, 16 September 2008 (UTC)

I'm sure it's just an error. I've written to Pokemon.com's mailbag about that, but they haven't answered it yet. What purpose would they have for making Kadabra unsearchable? That'd just inconvenience people. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 16:19, 22 December 2008 (UTC)
More than a year, and I just checked right now, and it's not searchable. I seriously think that its notable now. I'm adding it. The Dark Fiddler - You enter a poorly lit room... 02:19, 27 August 2009 (UTC)
Probably they don't let you touch Kadabra because of that whiner Geller. TTEchidna 03:07, 27 August 2009 (UTC)

TCG

Ever since that case with Uri Geller, there hasn't been a new Kadabra card in the TCG. Shouldn't that be mentioned somewhere on Kadabra's page? --いぬみみ 04:07, 21 February 2009 (UTC)

Behavior

I've yet to see a source on the entire "Kadabra, like Abra, sleep for around 18 hours a day." line

Can we get ANY citation for this or are we going by hearsay or making things up? Zelinko 02:41, 7 April 2010 (UTC)

Name

"The name might come from the Spanish word for goat."

Seriously? Does anyone see a single 'goat' characteristic about it? - unsigned comment from Mpcamel1729 (talkcontribs)

I can somewhat see it. Both Kadabra and goats have that scruff of fur on its face. :--SuperAipom7 (Need me?) 00:59, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Actully the article says under orgin Kadabra is based on a magician and also a spoon bender. It also shares similarities to goats and foxes, both animals with ties to magic.. The spanish naming using the word for goat probably comes from that explanation. --Pokemaster97 01:02, 12 December 2011 (UTC)
Ah. Now I sorta see it.
Foxes?
