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!

  • Evolve 3 Abra: 1,000 XP
  • Transfer 10 Pokemon: Kadabra encounter
  • Rewards: 2,000x Stardust, 1 Incense and 1 Poffin

Fantastic work, %PLAYERNAME%! Are you having difficulty catching Abra you encounter? – It’s said that you must clear your mind if you want to catch an Abra. – Or maybe you could ask your buddy for some catching assistance! – I’ve got a few more things about Abra that I could use your help researching. How about you give me a hand, and I’ll see if I can find a nice treat for your buddy?

I’m sure your buddy appreciates that delicious Poffin! I’m more of a Pinap Berry man myself. – While researching Abra, I read that it can sense danger and maintains a telepathic radar even while it’s sleeping! 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.
