Pokédex entries

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 It possesses strong spiritual power. The more danger it faces, the stronger its psychic power.
Silver 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.
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.
Emerald It is rumored that a boy with psychic abilities suddenly transformed into KADABRA while he was assisting research into extrasensory powers.
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 ha waves that can ruin precision devices.
Platinum It stares at its silver spoon to focus its mind. It emits more alpha waves while doing so.
HeartGold It possesses strong spiritual power. The more danger it faces, the stronger its psychic power.

Moon Kadabra’s presence infests televisions and monitors with creepy shadows that bring bad luck.
Ultra Sun It stares at a silver spoon to amplify its psychic powers before it lets loose. Apparently, gold spoons are no good.
Ultra Moon It possesses strong mental capabilities, but its psychic powers are halved when it’s not holding a silver spoon.
