    Default Alakazam

    065 Alakazam

    The Psi Pokemon.

    Abilities:
    Synchronize: When statused, the enemy is also statused.

    Inner Focus: Prevents the pokemon from flinching.

    Type: Psychic

    Evolves from Kadabra via trade

    Base Stats
    HP: 55
    Attack: 50
    Defense: 45
    Special Attack: 135
    Special Defense: 85
    Speed: 120

    Total: 490

    Trick
    Nature: Timid/Modest
    Items:Choice Specs
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Move Set:
    Trick
    Psychic
    Focus Blast
    Grass Knot / Hidden Power Fire/Shadow Ball

    So, with the Specs attached Alakazam is a fearsome sight to behold. Psychic for a Powerful STAB, Focus Blast for blasting unsuspecting Weavile and T-tar, Grass Knott takes care of Slowbro, his Starmie, and other waters, HP Fire nails Metagross, and Shadow Ball for taking care of other Psychics and Ghosts. If you predict that your opponent's going to switch in a wall(ie. Blissey) Trick your Specs on her, it'll severely hinder their walling capabilities.


    The Calm Minder
    Nature:Timid/Modest
    Item: Life Orb/Focus Sash
    EVs: 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Move Set:
    Psychic
    Calm Mind
    Focus Blast
    Grass Knot/Shadow ball

    Calm mind up and commence the sweeping, really killer late game.

    The Starter
    Nature: Hasty
    Item: Focus Sash
    EVs:4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
    Move set:
    Counter
    Encore
    Psychic
    Focus Blast/Grass Knot

    This is a great starter for any team, you can easily take out common Weavile leads with Counter, Def- nature ensures you get the most out of counter. It can also screw over set up pokemon like Ninjask with Encore. Psychic and Focus Blast/Grass Knot are for some coverage.

    I am still in awe that Alakazam is only in the BL tier. This guy has the power and speed to out do Gengar any day. In fact he is the single pokemon that makes me shake in my booties.

    Yeah, Alakazam should really be in the OU tier as far as I'm concerned.

    (And Aerodactyl and Spiritoumb can go with him if I have any say)

    Default Yeah

    I have one of these, and although I Ev'ed it wrong, it still served me well for a long while.

    Alakazam is just awesome (and I'm not just saying that because it's one of my top faves lol). It can really serve you well if used correctly. I love it's movepool and just how it looks. But yea, funny how it isn't in the OU tier. I think it's only because of the weak defenses.

    That and the appearance of Weavile is always generally a death sentence. -_-
