Default Hypno or Kadabra in GSC?

Hello. I've started playing Pokemon Gold recently, and I've been doing fairly well. I've beaten the fourth gym leader, and my party currently consists of Quilava, Sudowoodo, Lapras, Heracross, and Kadabra. I'm still deciding who will occupy the final slot, and I could use some help for that too. But, what I really want to know is if I should keep Kadabra.

Kadabra is strong, even if it isn't fully evolved, since 105 speed and 120 special attack points are strong enough to propel it through the game. But, I was wondering if Kadabra could be replaced by a Hypno.

I'm aware that the drop in power is going to be immense, but Hypno has better defenses, and access to Hypnosis.

So, I'm wondering if it would be worth it to replace Kadabra with Hypno. It may be a sort of body blow to my team, but will it play a big role in deciding whether I win a battle or lose a battle? Would you do it?

Keep the kadabra and teach it the elemental punches. An alakazam with ice punch, fire punch, thunder punch and psychic should be enough to get you through the elite four almost by itself if its at a similar level to them, it always has been for me.

because the punches were still special attacks, you got great variety and an excess of power from the abra line. Its a tad vulnerable but its fast enough that you shouldn't need to worry about getting hit

I'm aware that Kadabra knows all three punches. My Kadabra has learned all of them already. However, Hypno also learns all three punches.

Also, I cannot obtain Alakazam.

But Hypno sucks, Kadabra even not as an Alakazam has better special attack, and better speed.

For in game play only you just need sweepers, there is no point in having tanks since you will usually want to just outspeed and go for the OHKO or 2HKO.
Kadabra pwns :D

If you won't evolve your Kadabra into Alakazam, keep Hypno

That's what I'd do

Personally I like Hypno more, but for battling purposes keep the Kadabra~

Kadabra is better competitively, but either are fine in-game.

HP ATT DEF SPATT SPDEF SPEED Total
Kadabra's stats:40 35 30 120 70 105 400
Hypno's stats : 85 73 70 73 115 67 483

Hypno does better in: HP,Att,Def,sp.def
Kadabra does better in: Sp.att,speed

Both pokemon learn in level-up:
Confusion,Disable,Future Sight,Psychic

Hypno learns that Kadabra doesn't:
Pound,Hypnosis,Headbutt,Poison Gas, Meditate,Psych Up

Kadabra learns that Hypno doesn't:
Kinesis,Teleport,Psybeam,Reflect,Recover

They are very similar.. some of the moves that kadabra can't learn
through level ups is obtainable through TMs.
Kadabra's spc.att and speed is much higher than hypno's, which gives more
advantage when using better moves like Hyper Beam, Psychic,Zap Cannon, etc..
Hypno has over twice as much HP and a higher special defence and def which can
be used as as support pokemon ; but because the good status TMS aren't availible for Hypno
like safeguard,reflect and thunderwave. Hypno's Att,Def, and speed are average though..

I choose Kadabra.

Keep Kadabra and once it reaches level 30 it learns recover, then evolve it... Teach it Double Team, Use Double team to heighten it's defenses while using recover during the process so that Kadabra won't faint.
