I know that it's good for Pokemon like Alakazam, but why and how does the move work?

This move is a special attack meaning it uses the users special attack however it uses the opponents physical defense. This move is good because it allows Pokemon like alakazam to effectively attack blissey hitting its very low defense who would otherwise completely wall alakazam because of it amazing special defense.
