The Abra Evolution Chart Explained
The Abra evolution chart is one that is a little more 'involved' than your average Pokemon evolution chart, such as the Mankey Evolution. Whilst it may not have "branches" such as the ralts evolution chart, it can actually be a little more difficult.
That is because the Abra evolution tree is what some know as a "trade evolution" tree. For Abra to reach it's final evolution it needs to be traded within games.
But before that happens Abra first needs to be leveled up to level 16. That can be a little difficult as it can take awhile to use any offensive moves, so where possible try to use the Experience Share item to help boost your Abra's experience points and levels, risk free.
Trading for Alakazam
The difficult point for the Abra evolution tree is once it has evolved into Kadabra (at level 16 if you haven't been delaying the evolution by pressing b or using the Everstone).
To achieve the final evolution from Kadabra to Alakazam you need to do a trade between games (so trading with other "in game" trainers offering you swap deals is no good). And whilst there are rumours of being able to trade to the GTS and back to your own game none has worked reliably.
Instead you are going to need to trade the Pokemon, or if you want that specific one, trade and then trade back again. If you have 2 DS's and compatible games systems then that shouldn't be an issue.
Groups of games from the last 2 generations that are compatible with each other are
- Pokemon Black, Pokemon White, Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2
- Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, Pokemon Soul Silver and Pokemon Heart Gold.
The good news is that you can achieve this via the GTS, so you don't need to have 2 DS systems in order to do the trade, you can simply find a Kadabra on the GTS (that isn't holding an Everstone) and trade whatever is needed for it.
The Internet provides us with other ways to achieve the trade as well. Probably the most popular is to use Pokemon message boards such as Serebii or Bulbagardens to find people that might be willing to trade with you for the Pokemon they in turn want.
The easiest way, if you have mates that play Pokemon and who have compatible games, si to simply trade with them. This is the way that Nintendo envisaged us being able to use the Abra evolution tree in the first place, so it certainly makes sense!
Abra Evolves into Kadabra
Catching Abra in Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2
Of course to evolve Abra you first need to get one in your possession, unless you are trading for it of course. So where do you catch an Abra in the Pokemon Black and White series of games?
The good news is...we can help you there. Lets take a look at a few of the newer games for Abra's location.
- Pokemon Black - None. Trade or the Pokemon Dreamworld
- Pokemon White - White Forest
- Both Black 2 and White 2 have an in game version of Alakazam that you can trade for in Accumula Town
- You can catch Abra in the Pokemon Dreamworld in the Spooky Manor. You will need over 10,000 dream points for him to appear
