Good to see you again, %PLAYERNAME- Have you noticed an increased number of Abra in the area? – Yes, so did I. I originally thought this strange phenomenon was happening due to Abra’s ability to teleport. – When Abra decides to teleport randomly, it creates the illusion that it’s made copies of itself – However, what’s happening right now really does seem to be a large number of Abra appearing in the wild! Let’s research more about Abra and see what we can discover about the Psi Pokemon!

What amazing abilities/ – Why don’t you keep researching? As a token of my thanks, I’ll give you one of the Rocket Radars I’ve developed. – While it won’t give you Abra’s ability to sense danger while sleeping, it will help you track down any trouble the Team GO Rocket Leaders are stirring up.
