Description: Since evolution, Alakazam has grown taller, its ears pointier, and its moustache longer, getting bushier at the ends. It has more brown plates, in the shape of gauntlets and knee guards. The star and wavy lines that Kadabra had are gone, but it now has a pair of silver spoons instead of just one. These spoons amplify its Psychic powers even more, making it one of the strongest non-legendary Psychis type Pokémon in existence.

Capable of Mega Evolution, Mega Alakazam is actually smaller than Alakazam, and resembles an ancient guru. It sits in a Baddha Konasana position, with its toes interlaced, and it hovers off the ground. Mega Alakazam's moustache has grown even longer, turned white, and been joined by a bushy white beard. Instead of plated armor, its purple plates look more like robes, and a red jewel rests at the center of its forehead. It carries at least five silver spoons to further amplify its already immense Psychic power.

Alakazam are constantly overflowing with Psychic power, often causing headaches in humans and Pokémon nearby. However, physically speaking, Alakazam's muscles are so weak and atrophied that it cannot even move itself without telekinesis. As it grows older, its head continues to grow larger and larger, its memory stronger, and its IQ greater. With an IQ measuring at 5,000 or more, Alakazam is said to be able to remember everything it has ever experienced.
