Discard a Basic Pokémon or Evolution card from your hand. Choose 1 of that card's attacks. Skill Copy copies that attack. This attack does nothing if Alakazam Star doesn't have the Energy necessary to use that attack. (You must still do anything else required for that attack.) Alakazam Star performs that attack.

Trivia

Alakazam was the last Pokémon to be made into a Generation III-era card, its first appearance in the TCG since Skyridge. Its evolutionary relatives, Abra and Kadabra, were never made into cards during the Generation III era. While Abra later appeared in the Generation IV set, Mysterious Treasures, Kadabra has yet to resurface in the TCG, likely as a precaution to prevent a repeat of the Uri Geller lawsuit. Because of this, it could be argued that Alakazam was made a Pokémon Star to avoid releasing Abra and Kadabra cards.

Origin

This card is based on the Shiny version of Alakazam.
