Calm Mind. Definitely Calm Mind.

Calm Mind will increase both Sp Attack, and Special Defense, so you can hit harder. Most of the Pokemon you battle do not have any good abilities that are useful, forget great. Competitive play maybe Calm Mind, but a Specs is better, because Alakazam/ Kadabra just don't have proper defenses to set up.

Please put the rest of your team/ moveset, so I can help you better.

Yup,i would go with calm mind obviously.With that spatk and spdef of alakazam,it will wreck havoc as it raise its SpA and spdef.So yeah calm mind is the way to go.


Alakazam (M) @ Lum Berry

Ability: Inner Focus

EVs: 4 HP / 252 SAtk / 252 Spd

Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)

Calm mind
Ice Punch
Fire Punch

Gen III's Elemental Punch coverage for Alakazam rocks!
And then Psychic for STAB. I think it's pretty self explanitory.
