The Twisted Spoon is a held item that boosts the power of its holder’s Psychic-type moves. You can only find Twisted Spoons as held items on wild Abra. Each one has a 5% chance of carrying this item with each encounter.

So you’ll want a Pokémon that knows a stealing move like Thief to take the item. Otherwise you’ll have to catch every Abra you find and take any Twisted Spoons you can get.

Wild Abra can be found in Granite Cave on Route 106. You can get there through Dewford Town.

Where To Find Wild Abra

You can only find wild Abra in Granite Cave in Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.

The cave is located on the western corner of Route 106.

In Granite Cave, there is a 15% chance that you’ll encounter a wild Abra on the ground floor. But in the basement floors there is a 20% chance to encounter wild Abra.

Just note that you’ll need the Mach Bike to climb the muddy slopes to get to the ladders leading to the basement.

Here’s how to get to Granite Cave:

Step 1: Fly to Dewford Town. Then from the Pokémon Center, head north towards Route 106.

Farming Twisted Spoons

When you encounter a wild Abra, there is a 5% chance it is holding a Twisted Spoon.

To efficiently farm this item you need a Pokémon that knows the stealing move Thief. With each Abra you encounter, you can immediately steal the Twisted Spoon from it if it’s carrying one.

Note: Wild Abra only knows the move Teleport, letting it freely escape battle during its turn. Make sure you can use Thief as your first move before it flees.

To increase your chances of obtaining held items from wild Pokémon, check out our comprehensive guide on building a held item farming team.

It’ll teach you how to utilize Pokémon with the abilities CompoundEyes and Frisk to increase the chances of encountering wild Pokémon holding an item and to identify that item at the start of the battle.

What Do Twisted Spoons Do?

When held by a Pokémon, the Twisted Spoon raises the power of its holder’s Psychic-type moves by 20%.

Pokémon like Mr. Mime and Alakazam will benefit the most from this item, especially when the 20% power boost is combined with STAB.

So if you can farm wild Abra in the early game when you first reach Dewford, this can be a powerful held item to acquire & stick with during a good portion of your playthrough.
