* Alakazam could be seen as a counterpart to {{p|Machamp}}. They are both the last stage of a three-part evolutionary family, they reach their final stage by [[Trade|trading]], and they both have a 75% male gender ratio. Also, Alakazam excels at the {{Stat|Special Attack}} stat, while Machamp excels at {{stat|Attack}}. They are both in all regional Pokédexes (excluding the [[List of Pokémon by Unova Pokédex number|Unova dex]]). Their evolutionary families are also next to each other in the National Pokédex. Moreover, a girl in [[Oreburgh City]] will [[List of in-game trades#Diamond Pearl and Platinum|trade]] her Abra for a Machop.
** Alakazam could also be seen as a counterpart to {{p|Gengar}}. They are both the last stage of a three-part evolutionary family, which can only be achieved by trading, both have Mega Evolutions, Gengar is weak against Psychic moves and Alakazam is weak against Ghost moves, so they are weak and at the same time strong against each other. They have the same length, and both get smaller when they Mega Evolve. Their base friendship is also the same, with 70. In ''[[EP072|The Ancient Puzzle of Pokémopolis]]'', there are a Gengar and an Alakazam put against each other. Since Generation VI, they both have a Base stat total of 500. Both are weak to Dark-type Pokémon. They also have the same stat structure throughout their evolutions, always having high Speed and Special Attack, and being very low in Physical Defense and still relatively low in Special Defense, HP, and Physical Attack.
* Mega Alakazam has the highest [[stat|Special Attack]] stat of all non-legendary Pokémon.
* In [[Generation VI]], Alakazam is the only Pokémon whose [[Base stats|base stat total]] does not increase by exactly 100 points upon [[Mega Evolution]], instead gaining only 90 points overall. However, Mega Alakazam received another 10 points in [[Generation VII]], making it the only alternate form Pokémon to receive a boost to its base stats.
* Alakazam has the lowest average [[Performance]] of any fully-evolved Pokémon.
