How to Evolve Kadabra Without Trading in "Pokemon Ruby"

Updated July 20, 2017

Kadabra is a Psychic-type Pokemon in "Pokemon Ruby" that can evolve into the powerful Alakazam through the trading process. If you do not have anyone to trade with, you can still evolve Kadabra into Alakazam using an Action Replay game-modifying device. By inputting a certain code into the Action Replay, you can immediately turn your Kadabra into an Alakazam, although it will not show the cut-scene that accompanies all evolutions.

Insert the Action Replay device in your Nintendo unit. Insert the "Pokemon Ruby" game cartridge into the Action Replay's cartridge slot.

Enter the following code at the Action Replay's code screen:

A2E564FE 0FB58A54

530823D9 16558191

9E684A89 F7CF0AE0

Start the game and select your saved file.

Place Kadabra at the first slot in your party.

Press and hold the "R" and "L" buttons. Kadabra will now be transformed into an Alakazam.


Using Action Replay game modifying devices can corrupt your saved file.
