Alakazam (Japanese: フーディン Foodin) is a Psychic-type Pokémon.

It evolves from Kadabra when traded. It is the final form of Abra. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Alakazam using the Alakazite.

Biology

Alakazam is characterized by its humanoid structure and large mustache. The female Alakazam has a significantly shorter mustache than the male. Its snout is long and thin, and it has long, ear-like spikes extending from the back of its head. It has brown armor-like sections over its chest, shoulders, forearms and knees, which cover its yellow skeletal body. There are three toes on each foot, each of which has a white claw. It wields a silver spoon in each hand, each of which acts as an amplifier for its psychic abilities. Alakazam is able to lower the accuracy of its opponents by bending the spoons it wields, using its signature move Kinesis.

As Mega Alakazam, this Pokémon gains a large white beard and its mustache becomes larger and white. The armor-like sections become bulkier, with its upper body section becoming slightly shorter to reveal its thin stomach. The head becomes diamond-shaped. It keeps its four ear-like spikes, and gains a large, oval, red organ in the center of its forehead. The organ is said to emit psychic power.[1] Its lower legs become longer and slimmer and its feet become skinnier and resemble talons. It gains three additional spoons, which it levitates in the air.

Alakazam is able to use all forms of psychic abilities. These powers are used to move its body, as opposed to its weak muscles. It also uses its psychic powers to hold up its head, which is too heavy to be supported by its neck, due to its continually growing brain. It is said to have an excellent memory and can remember everything that it has experienced since hatching as an Abra, and has an IQ that exceeds 5,000. It is found in urban areas.

Trivia

  • Alakazam could be seen as a counterpart to Machamp. They are both the last stage of a three-part evolutionary family, they reach their final stage by trading, and they both have a 75% male gender ratio. Also, Alakazam excels at the Special Attack stat, while Machamp excels at Attack. They are both in all regional Pokédexes (excluding the Unova dex). Their evolutionary families are also next to each other in the National Pokédex. Moreover, a girl in Oreburgh City will trade her Abra for a Machop.
  • Alakazam has the lowest average Performance of any fully-evolved Pokémon.
  • In Red and Blue, an Alakazam sent out by an opponent while the player's Pokémon has low health will have the cry of a Gastly.
  • In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Alakazam is the same height as Ethan.
  • Mega Alakazam has the highest Special Attack base stat of all non-legendary Pokémon and the highest Speed base stat of all non-legendary Psychic-type Pokémon.
  • Alakazam is the only Pokémon whose base stat total does not increase by exactly 100 points upon Mega Evolving, gaining only 90 points overall.

Origin

Alakazam is based on a magician and also a spoon bender. It also shares similarities to goats and foxes, both animals with ties to magic.

Mega Alakazam is based on a sorcerer or wizard, or possibly sadhus with psychic powers.

Name origin

Alakazam is an incantation used in stage magic, similar to Abracadabra.

Foodin can be spelled Houdin and is probably a reference to Jean Eugène Robert-Houdin or Harry Houdini, who were both famous magicians, as the Japanese names of the Abra line are based on famous mystics.
