@ Choice Specs

Psychic
Signal Beam
Focus Blast
Trick

Why would you want to use Trick while holding Choice Specs, they aren't exactly easy to get a hold on?

I'm partial to Signal Beam, Recover, Psychic and Shadow Ball myself, but it depends on what gaps you have in your team that you need filled.

^ I prefer changing Trick with Sub and Specs to Leftovers/Lifeorb to prevent being Pursuit bait or Sucker Punched.

Trickbanding. Learn to.

But rabies_neko has a solid suggestion too. Depends, as I keep shouting into the winds, on the rest of your team and what you want the Alakazam to do.

Runite has a pretty solid set with his suggestion. Worst case scenario is that you go up against spiritomb, which is resistant to alot of this set.

Wow - thanks for a totally useless answer to my question. You're my new hero.

Turnip doesn't battle competitively which is why he probably doesn't understand the advice. In Wi-Fi battles you get the items back.

I do assume the TC wanted competitive advice, if not feel free to ignore my post.

Ingame Alakazam:

@Whatever

Psychic
Signal Beam or Shadow Ball, whatever's easier for you to get
Focus Blast if you used Shadow Ball, Calm Mind if you used Signal Beam
Recover
