This would be the last appearance of Kadabra in the TCG for nearly 20 years until the release of Kadabra from the 151 expansion in 2023, despite Abra and Alakazam being included in other expansions since. This is due to illusionist Uri Geller's lawsuit against Nintendo over the similarity between Kadabra's Japanese name (ユンゲラー Yungerer) and appearance to his own.

Mysterious Treasures contained the last appearance of Abra until the release of Abra from the 151 expansion in 2023. It had an attack that allowed it to evolve directly into an Alakazam.

In November 2020, Uri Geller dismissed his lawsuit on Kadabra's depiction in the TCG due to fan outcry,[1] thus allowing Kadabra cards to be released again.


Nightmare is a move in the Pokémon games that Kadabra can learn via TM50 in Generation II. Mind Shock is a move that first appeared on Dark Kadabra and Dark Alakazam from Team Rocket. This card's English e-Reader Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Crystal, whereas the Japanese entry comes from Pokémon Gold.
