When requested by PokeBeach about any data he may need to do with Kadabra, he merely linked its personal report of Pokemon Card 151 again to them, strongly suggesting that is the place we’ll see… no matter Kadabra is once more.

Geller additionally offered a quote to PokeBeach explaining it was the followers that satisfied him to alter his thoughts on lifting the ban, saying “I’m happy Pokemon followers are excited to see Kadabra return to the cardboard sport. Look, I need to thank the Pokemon followers who reached out to me during the last [few] years. Together with those from PokeBeach, who stored contacting me nonstop. So principally, it was you and my granddaughters that acquired me to alter my thoughts. Now we are able to all see Kadabra reunited with the unique Pokemon within the card sport this summer time.”
