This is in Pokemon Ruby and I'm trying to get a Twisted Spoon. I already tried to use Thief on an Abra but it didn't work because he teleported first. I don't know if it'll work when it does have a Twisted Spoon or not, but I'm going to keep on trying until I get an answer.

Since neither move seems have a different Priority, I'd just assume that the Abra was faster than your Pokemon.  What level was the Abra, and what Pokemon are you using (and what level is it?)?
I don't think level matters because I can't hit it even if it was a lower level than my pokemon.
The point is that you have to be faster than the Abra.  Higher level Pokemon tend to be faster than lower level ones, because generally higher level Pokemon have higher stats.

It is possible. You just need another Pokemon faster than it, as teleport and thief have no priority. Abra can lear thief, so If you catch one,` you just have to win the speed tie.
