Abra (ケーシィ, Casey) is a Pokémon from the Pokémon series. It briefly appears in the introduction movie of Melee and later as a Poké Ball summon in Ultimate.

Abra is a Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and is categorized within the Pokédex at #063 as the "Psi Pokémon". It evolves into Kadabra starting at level 16, which evolves into Alakazam when traded. It is notorious for only learning Teleport by leveling-up, which means that in wild battles it will run away whenever given an opportunity to act, thus being difficult to catch.

Teleport is a non-damaging Psychic-type move introduced in Generation I, where it was also TM30. When used by a wild Pokémon or during a wild encounter, the user will flee from battle, ending it. In Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee! onward, it lets the user switch to an ally under a negative priority bracket; it would always fail during trainer battles in previous games. The move will fail when the opponent uses a trapping move, has a trapping ability, or is in a non-single battle. If a player uses it outside of battle, they'll be taken back to the last place they healed at.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee[edit]

An Abra makes a brief cameo appearance in the opening movie, during the sequence that shows dozens of Pokémon.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

  • While Abra can't appear on Minecraft World, it appears during the Enderman Spirit battle on the same stage. This makes it one of two assist characters to appear on a stage in which they normally cannot be summoned in during a spirit battle, the other being the Moon, which appears in the Battlefield form of Shadow Moses Island during the Radiant Gleam spirit battle.
