Alakazam (Pokémon)

1 byte added, 20 July
** 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}} of all non-legendary Pokémon.
* In [[Generation VI]], Alakazam iswas 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.
** Mega Alakazam received another 10 points in [[Generation VII]], making it the only alternate form Pokémon to receive a boost to its base stats.
** Because some form of Alakazam had its {{stat|Special Defense}} raised in both Generation VI and Generation VII, Alakazam is the only Pokémon whose base stats changed more than once after [[Generation II]]
