Special Sweeper Kadabra (Retro)
Kadabra is a fabulous Special Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. From the original 151, few Pokemon could compare to Kadabra at the start of the Pokemon metagame. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Psybeam is a special STAB-boosted 65-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
♦ Recover is a status move (heals your Kadabra by 50% of its max hp).
♦ Thunder Wave is a status move (paralyzes the target).
♦ Reflect is a status move (while active, your Kadabra's defense is doubled).
