Biology

Alakazam is a Pokémon that resembles a person with a huge mustache. A female Alakazam has a much shorter mustache than a male Alakazam. It features a long, thin nose, tiny eyes, ear-like spikes on top of its skull, and another spike jutting from each cheek. Brown armor-like pieces covering its yellow, skeletal body cover its chest, shoulders, forearms, and knees. Each foot has three toes, each of which has a white claw. Two of the toes point forward, while one points back. It carries a silver spoon in each hand, which acts as a mental amplifier. The spoons are made using its psychic abilities, and it may offer one to someone it trusts.

Mega Alakazam’s mustache whitens and becomes longer and bushier. It also has a white beard that gets long. The armor-like portions thicken, and the top body segment shortens to show its small stomach. The ear-like spikes shorten, and a bigger spike grows on top of its skull. It also acquires an oval, red organ in the middle of its brow. It is thought that the organ emits psychological strength. Its lower legs get longer and thinner, and its feet thin and resemble talons. It acquires three more spoons, bringing its total to five that it levitates in the air. Mega Alakazam’s power is totally turned to pure mental energy at the expense of its already-low bodily strength. With a single glimpse, it can read the whole path of a person’s life.

Alakazam has a wide range of psychic talents. The excess of its mental energies might give individuals surrounding migraines. In contrast to its feeble muscles, these abilities are employed to move its body. It also used psychic abilities to support its head, which is too hefty to be supported by its neck. Its head becomes bigger with age due to its constantly increasing brain. It is reported to have an IQ of over 5,000 and a great memory, recalling everything it has encountered from hatching as an Abra until the moment of its death. It is found in cities.

Alakazam and its pre-evolved form, Kadabra, are the only Pokémon known to be able to learn the move Kinesis.
