A giant Alakazam was awakened near Pokémonopolis in The Ancient Puzzle of Pokémopolis.

The first time a normal Alakazam made an appearance was 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.

Gary Oak 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.

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 no-so-cute Alakazam.

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.
