  • "Hocus" was Abra's original English name.
  • Abra and its evolutions are in all the regional Pokédexes.


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. 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.
