They have the same length, and both get smaller when they mega evolve. Their base friendship is also the same, with 70. In the animé episode: The ancient puzzle of Pokémopolis there are a Gengar and a Alakazam put against each other. Since Generation VI, they both have a Base stat total of 500. Both are weak to Dark type Pokémon.
