Best answer

In fact Kadabra does appear in the anime.

Major appearances
Sabrina's Kadabra
Sabrina, the Gym Leader of Saffron City, has a Kadabra that evolved from an Abra in Abra and the Psychic Showdown and was used against Ash. After being defeated by Sabrina, and obtaining a Haunter, Kadabra was defeated in a rematch in Haunter Versus Kadabra. It was seen again in a flashback in Bad to the Bone.
Minor appearances
A Kadabra appeared in The Mandarin Island Miss Match. It was defeated in a battle by Prima's Cloyster.
A Kadabra was seen in a fantasy in The Rivalry Revival.
In Fear Factor Phony, a Kadabra was living in an abandoned mining colony with several other Psychic-type Pokémon.

5 seconds off. My answering skills have gone bad :P
Lol Yeah Im surprised no one had answered before me.
i've heard that a migician sued nintendo for Kadabra
A magician sued Nintendo? I pretty sure that never happened, or of it did it probably didnt get very far.
Kadabra is a magician, but suing over it is quite a shame.
True, Uri Geller sued Nintendo since he said kadabra was a parody of him.
Interesting. And how did his lawsuit fare?
Thats what I thought :P Generally suing a company as large as Nintendo wouldnt be easy, ESPECIALLY if you call yourself a magician.
But the lawsuit is actually the reason for Kadabra not being in the anime, just in case Geller would strike again.
Well actually Kadabra IS in the anime. And also apparently a lawsuit against Nintendo was not the only issue. He was sued by another company and then he countersued and so on and so forth. You know how these stupid law things go :P
