The Hisui region, which was formerly known as Sinnoh in the world of Pokemon, is where the player of Pokemon Legends: Arceus is currently located. The player will become a member of the Survey Corps, which is tasked with studying every Pokemon in the Hisui region, when they join the Galaxy Expedition Team (also known as the Galaxy Team). To successfully finish the Hisui region’s first Pokedex, which is used to learn Pokemon, the player must catch each and every Pokemon in the region.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Ultimate Alakazam Guide

In this guide, we will discuss everything you need to know about Alakazam!


Alakazam, the 60th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is an Psychic type Psi Pokemon with a yellow and brown body, a long but thin snout, a big mustache, spikes that resemble ears, two feet with three toes and white claws each, and two hands holding silver spoons. Alakazam’s head grows larger and heavier as it lives, according to its Pokedex entry in the game. Furthermore, tests have revealed that the strength of Alakazam’s psychic abilities correlates positively with the weight of its head.

Basic Information

Alakazam is a Psychic type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to the Bug-type, Dark-type, and Ghost-type moves (super effective) and resistance to Fighting-type and Psychic-type moves (not very effective).

Alakazam’s base stats are 55 HP, 50 Attack, 45 Defense, 135 Special Attack, 95 Special Defense, and 120 Speed for a total of 500.

Alakazam can be evolved from a Kadabra by trading or using a Linking Cord, and a Kadabra is evolved from an Abra once it reaches Level 16.

Alakazam prefers Springy Mushrooms, Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans, which can be useful if the player feeds it food to distract it before catching it.

The player will receive an Exp. Candy L and a Seed of Mastery after an Alakazam is captured or defeated in the wild.


Alakazam may be only found in the following location:

In the Obsidian Fieldlands: in the Sandgem Flats.


The Alakazam that can be found above is an Alpha Pokemon and is situated here at all times of the day and in every weather condition. The Alpha Alakazam is a Level 60 Pokemon.

Other than that, Alakazam may also be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Obsidian Fieldlands and the Alabaster Icelands.

Research Tasks

The following are the Research Tasks in Alakazam’s Pokedex entry:

MultiplierResearch TaskObjectives
x2Number caught1/2/4/6/10
Number of alpha specimens caught1/2/3
Number defeated1/2/4/6/10
Number you’ve defeated with Dark type moves1/2/3
Times you’ve seen it use Recover1/3/8/20/40
x2Times you’ve seen it use Psychic1/3/10/30/70
Times you’ve seen it use an agile style move1/2/4/10/15
Number of different forms you’ve obtained2

The player must have a Pokemon reach Research Level 10 to complete its Pokedex entry. The player must complete an objective from one of the Research Tasks to obtain a Research Level. Conducting a Research Tasks objective with an x2 multiplier will add two Research Levels.

To quickly complete Alakazam’s Pokedex entry, the player must catch the Alpha Alakazam in the Obsidian Fieldlands, which ticks the first objectives of the “number caught” and “number of alpha specimen caught” Research Task to raise the Research Level to 3 thanks to the first one’s x2 multiplier, use it in battle and let it use Psychic in agile style three times, which ticks the first and second objectives of the “Times you have seen it use Psychic” and the “Times you have seen it use an agile style move” Research Tasks to gain six more Research Levels thanks to the former’s x2 multiplier, then let it use Recover once, which ticks the first objective of the “Times you have seen it use Recover” Research Task to add one last Research Level, to reach Research Level 10.


Alakazam may be able to add moves to use in battle by leveling up or by learning them from the Training Grounds.
