  1. So for any Pokémon fan out there, this is really huge news. TWENTY years ago, Uri Geller sued the Nintendo over the fact that the Psychic-Type Pokémon Kadabra, whose Japanese name is Yungerer (ユンゲラー, Yungerā) and holds a spoon on its right hand, was an unauthorized appropriation of his identity (Uri Geller claims to bend spoons with his mind). He complained that the star on the Pokémon's forehead was reminiscent of the Waffen-SS and thus they had "turned him into an evil, occult Pokémon character". The fact that the Team Rocket set of the Trading Card Game released a card named "Dark Kadabra" didn't help the matter. (Every Pokémon from this set has the prefix Dark because they're supposed to be corrupted versions of the normal Pokémon) So Kadabra, who's related to its pre-evolution Abra, and evolution Alakazam, has still been part of the videogames, spin-off and even the anime (with very low appearances over the years) but he has been completely absent from the Pokémon Trading Card Game, literally, since 2000. In 2008, Masamitsu Hidaka, director of the Pokémon anime claimed in an interview that the reason why they hadn't made any Kadabra cards again was due to the lack of an agreement between the two parties. Today, 20 years later, it has been reported by The Gamer that Uri Geller has finally reached out to Nintendo representatives to give them permission to make Kadabra cards again. He explained he was overwhelmed by the huge amounts of emails he kept receiving from fans to remove the ban. He also tweeted his apologies: Hopefully we'll see Kadabra again in the future sets of the Trading Card Game, justice has finally been served
