How To Get Twisted Spoons in Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen

A Twisted Spoon can be found as a held item on wild Abras and wild Kadabras. Each Pokémon has a 5% chance of holding a Twisted Spoon, so to get this item you must catch an Abra or Kadabra and check whether it’s holding a Twisted Spoon (spelled in-game as “TwistedSpoon”).

Abras and Kadabras can be found in both FireRed and LeafGreen, and there’s no limit to how many Twisted Spoons you can get.

You can also steal the item from Abras and Kadabras by using moves like Covet and Thief, rather than catching a bunch to check which ones have held items.

 

Getting Twisted Spoons (All Locations)

Getting a Twisted Spoon is both easy and hard.

It’s easy because you just have to catch Abra or Kadabra and check if they’re holding the item. It’s hard because Abra can be annoying to catch early game, and both Pokémon only have a 5% chance of actually holding the item.

Before you begin your hunt for Abra or Kadabra, I recommend leaving a bunch of room in your party.

This way you can catch the Pokémon and immediately check if it is holding the Twisted Spoon or not.

If you do not have any space in your party, the Abra or Kadabra you catch will be sent back to your PC, and you’ll need to head all the way to a Pokémon Center just to see if you got the Twisted Spoon or not.

This means you’ll either have to make a bunch of trips back and forth, or you’ll need to catch a bunch of Pokémon and hope one of them had the Twisted Spoon.

Wild Kadabra can only be found in the post-game because its only location is Cerulean Cave, which is only accessible after you beat the Elite Four and help Celio.

Abra and Kadabra both have a 5% chance of holding Twisted Spoon, so you may be better off just hunting Abra on Route 24.

I will say, though, that I caught nine Abras and not a single one had a Twisted Spoon. On the other hand, the first Kadabra I caught was holding the item. So maybe Kadabra is just luckier.

To enter Cerulean Cave and find Kadabra:

 
Surf from this spot to reach Cerulean Cave / Pokémon FireRed & LeafGreen

  1. Defeat the Elite Four and bring Celio the Ruby and Saphire (Post Game)
  2. Cross the yellow bridge north of Cerulean City
  3. Use Surf down the water to the left of the bridge, and head east, then south again
  4. If you haven’t defeated the Elite Four and helped Celio, a blue-haired NPC will be in your way and will not let you pass. If you have completed the prerequisites you will be able to enter Cerulean Cave without issue
  5. Head to 2F or B1 to find wild Kadabras

Remember, Cerulean Cave actually has some pretty tough Pokémon. It’s pretty much the final trainer test, after all.

So make sure that you bring plenty of Ultra Balls, Revives, Max Potions, etc. because you’re going to need them.

Tip: When hunting Abras, I recommend keeping some party slots open. However, you’re probably going to need a full party for Kadabra hunting. At the very least, you’ll want two or three level 70 – 80+ Pokémon with you.

 

What Is The Twisted Spoon?

Twisted Spoon is a held item that boosts the power of Psychic-type moves by 10%.

It is great for Pokémon like Alakazam and Gengar that rely heavily on dealing a lot of Psychic damage.

Using held items like the Twisted Spoon is a great way to give your Pokémon a huge boost to their damage without having to over-level them. They’re even a little necessary for post-game challenges like the Trainer Tower.
