Why does it hold the spoon? Is it a Twistedspoon? Here are all the Pokedex Descriptions for Kadabra. There is nothing about the Spoon.


Pokedex descriptions

Red
Blue
- It emits special alpha waves from its body that induce headaches just by being close by.

Yellow - Many odd things happen if this POKéMON is close by. For example, it makes clocks run backwards.

Gold
HeartGold
- It possesses strong spiritual power. The more danger it faces, the stronger its psychic power.

Silver
SoulSilver
- If it uses its abilities, it emits special alpha waves that cause machines to malfunction.

Crystal - When it closes its eyes, twice as many alpha particles come out of the surface of its body.

Ruby - KADABRA emits a peculiar alpha wave if it develops a headache. Only those people with a particularly strong psyche can hope to become a TRAINER of this POKéMON.

Sapphire - KADABRA holds a silver spoon in its hand. The spoon is used to amplify the alpha waves in its brain. Without the spoon, the POKéMON is said to be limited to half the usual amount of its telekinetic powers.

Emerald - It is rumored that a boy with psychic abilities suddenly transformed into KADABRA while he was assisting research into extrasensory powers.

FireRed - It happened one morning - a boy with extrasensory powers awoke in bed transformed into KADABRA.

LeafGreen - It emits special alpha waves from its body that induce headaches just by being close.

Diamond - If one is nearby, an eerie shadow appears on TV screens. Seeing the shadow is said to bring bad luck.

Pearl - When it uses its psychic power, it emits strong alpha waves that can ruin precision devices.

Platinum
Black
White
- It stares at its silver spoon to focus its mind. It emits more alpha waves while doing so.

I am confused so please let me know.

There is nothing about the spoon, yet I'm going to copy and paste something that says White - It stares at its silver spoon to focus its mind. It emits more alpha waves while doing so.
Fail!!
And this:

Sapphire - KADABRA holds a silver spoon in its hand. The spoon is used to amplify the alpha waves in its brain. Without the spoon, the POKéMON is said to be limited to half the usual amount of its telekinetic powers.

The spoon signifies its psychic ability. The Kadabra line was supposedly based on famous psychic Uri Gellar, whose big trick was "bending spoons with his mind" (it's just a magic trick though, of course).

Also, you copy-pasted TWO Pokedex entries that mention the spoon:

Sapphire - KADABRA holds a silver spoon in its hand. The spoon is used to amplify the alpha waves in its brain. Without the spoon, the POKéMON is said to be limited to half the usual amount of its telekinetic powers.

and

Platinum/Black/White - It stares at its silver spoon to focus its mind. It emits more alpha waves while doing so.

It's just a mark of it's psychic abilities, as it's holding a twisted spoon. Although the spoon doesn't do anything.

The twistedspoon is also an item that increases psychic type moves.
