Magician Uri Gellar says Nintendo can make Kadabra Pokémon TCG cards again after 17 years
There hasn’t been a Kadabra Pokémon Trading Card since 2003, but all that could change now.
Twenty years ago, magician Uri Gellar took offence and attempted to sue Nintendo claiming that The Pokémon Kababra was a parody of him, with also the Japanese name for Kadabra being Yungerer (Abra and Alakazam are also named similarly to other magicians). Kadabra also bends spoons, the same trick he performs.
Since then Nintendo hasn’t printed a single Pokémon card with Kadabra on it since the 2003 Skyridge set. Over the weekend, the magician has now proclaimed that Nintendo is free to print Kadabra cards again after allegedly contacting Nintendo. He apologised for what he did and also has the following tweet.
Whether or not Nintendo actually take this as a clear sign to print a Kadabra card again remains to be seen. Good news for Kadabra fans.
