Now, sure, we all know what an indisputable boss Alakazam is. The OG Psychic-type powerhouse has been crushing souls and shattering dreams into soggy tear-stained pieces for two decades now. You don’t mess with the ‘Zam Man and his glorious mustache. Sadly, when you first encounter the species in the
wild, it’s usually in the form of the pitiful Abra. Feeble and defenceless, it knows just one move: Teleport. All this achieves is a royal pain in the ass for trainers trying to catch it. Remember all those roaming legendaries who take off as soon as you find them? Yep. If you want its pappy’s Darth Vader-esque mind tricks on your team, you’d better put in the time to babysit its hopeless early form.
