Uri Geller has finally reversed his decision to stop Nintendo from using Kadabra in Pokémon, after receiving ” huge amounts of emails ” and is ” truly sorry ” about the dispute that broke out 20 years ago.
The Pokémon disappeared in the early 2000s after Geller staged a legal battle over the Pokémon using its image. In particular, the illusionist claimed that the Pokémon was an ” occult and evil character ” (via VG247 ) and fought to stop Nintendo from using it.
Now, however, it appears that the illusionist has changed his mind.
“ I am really sorry for what I did 20 years ago, ” Geller admitted in a tweet on his official account. ” Kids and adults I’m lifting the ban. Now it’s up to Nintendo to bring Kadabra back .”
“ It will probably be one of the rarest cards now! “
I am truly sorry for what I did 20 years ago. Kids and grownups I am releasing the ban. It’s now all up to #Nintendo to bring my #kadabra #pokemon card back.
It will probably be one of the rarest cards now! Much energy and love to all!https://t.co/Rv1aJFlIKS pic.twitter.com/5zDMX5S8WA

” Due to the huge volume of emails I received I allowed Nintendo to bring back Kadabra / Yungeller, I sent […] a letter to the president of Nintendo giving them consent to relaunch Uri Geller Kadabra / Yungeller in all the world, “Geller told The Gamer, adding that his letter was” taken by two representatives of Nintendo. “
