Kadabra is a Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon Go.

Being a pure Psychic type, it is weak to the Bug, Dark, and Ghost types. 

Kadabra can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 1109 – 1176 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
  • 1387 – 1471 CP at Level 25 with Windy weather boost

2-3 trainers can easily take down Kadabra. It can be solo’d by high-level trainers. 

Kadabra evolves into the powerful Alakazam, renowned for its high ATK stat. Mega Alakazam has the highest ATK stat of any non-legendary mega evolution.
