We present the x-ray absorption data at the oxygen K-edge using total yield technique for Gd1−xPrxba2Cu3O7 (x= 0.0, 0.2, 0.4, 0.6, 0.8, and 1.0). The data clearly to oxygen that the holes doped in the GdBa2Cu3O7 due to oxygen composition are not removed by Pr doping even for the x = 1.0 sample, suggesting that Pr is predominantly in the formally trivalent state. However, the data also clearly indicate the evidence of hybridization effects between the Pr3+ and the adjacent CuO2 layers. This is suggested to be responsible for the progressive suppression of Tc and the metallicity with Pr doping in these systems.
