Alakazam

Red
Blue
Its brain can outperform a supercomputer. Its intelligence quotient is said to be 5,000.
Yellow A POKéMON that can memorize anything. It never forgets what it learns--that's why this POKéMON is smart.
Gold Closing both its eyes heightens all its other senses. This enables it to use its abilities to their extremes.
Silver Its brain cells multiply continually until it dies. As a result, it remembers everything.
Crystal It has an IQ of 5000. It calculates many things in order to gain the edge in every battle.
Ruby ALAKAZAM’s brain continually grows, making its head far too heavy to support with its neck. This POKéMON holds its head up using its psychokinetic power instead.
Sapphire ALAKAZAM’s brain continually grows, infinitely multiplying brain cells. This amazing brain gives this POKéMON an astoundingly high IQ of 5,000. It has a thorough memory of everything that has occurred in the world.
FireRed It does not like physical attacks very much. Instead, it freely uses extrasensory powers to defeat foes.
LeafGreen Its brain can outperform a supercomputer. Its IQ (intelligence quotient) is said to be around 5,000.
Emerald While it has strong psychic abilities and high intelligence, an ALAKAZAM’s muscles are very weak. It uses psychic power to move its body.
Diamond Its superb memory lets it recall everything it has experienced from birth. Its IQ exceeds 5,000.
Pearl Its highly developed brain is on par with a supercomputer. It can use all forms of psychic abilities.
Platinum The spoons clutched in its hands are said to have been created by its psychic powers.
HeartGold Closing both its eyes heightens all its other senses. This enables it to use its abilities to their extremes.

Ultra Sun Alakazam uses its psychic powers to make the spoons it carries. Each spoon is an original that there’s only one of in the whole world.
Ultra Moon If it trusts someone deeply, it will let them have one of its spoons. Anything you eat with that spoon is apparently delicious.

Mega Alakazam

Sun As a result of Mega Evolution, its power has been entirely converted into psychic energy, and it has lost all strength in its muscles.
Moon Its hidden psychic power has been unleashed. A glance at someone gives it knowledge of the course of that person’s life, from birth to death.
Ultra Sun It sends out psychic power from the red organ on its forehead to foresee its opponents’ every move.
Ultra Moon Having traded away its muscles, Alakazam’s true power has been unleashed. With its psychic powers, it can foresee all things.
