Poke-Reviews: Kangaskhan and Mega-Kangaskhan
Number: 115 Types: Normal
Height: 7ft. e3n. Weight: 176.4lbs.
My first leap into the world of Mega-Pokémon was originally going to be Mega-Houndoom and Houndoom. And then I saw this thing. Kangaskhan doesn’t really have a mega-evolution…it has a mega-bad parenting tactic. If you give a Kangaskhan a Kangaskhanite you can mega-evolve Kangaskhan into….a Kangaskhan….WHO FIGHTS WITH IT’S BABY! Seriously, a more powerful version of Kangaskhan is just a regular one who booted its kid out of the pouch and said “Now junior, help mommy kick the crap out of this horde of Weepinbels.” For a Pokémon whose entire design screams “SHE’S A MOTHER!” this seems like a really risky thing for the mom to do.
Stat-wise: Kangaskhan has always had an edge in HP, Atk, and Speed. It has some stats above average aka its defense stats and is not great in terms of Sp. Atk. However, when you mega evolve it most of the stats increase. Def. and Sp .Def. go from 80 in base power to 100. Speed goes from 90 to 100. Sp. Atk goes from 40 to 60 and Atk goes from 95 to 125. HP remains the same.
Move-wise: This thing is built to be a murder train. Depending on how you raise it, your Kangaskhan can be a beast. Obviously, you will want to beef up its physical capabilities so for pure power attacks it can learn Outrage, Mega-punch, Sucker Punch, Crunch, or Dizzy Punch. However, if you throw TM’s into them mix it can also learn powerhouse moves like Return, Earthquake, Aerial Ace, Bulldoze, and Power-Up Punch. There are some neat moves in terms of type coverage here. And if you transfer one from a Gen V game it could have Fire, Ice, and Thunder Punch.
Ability-wise: It has three…four counting Mega-evolution. The first one being, Early Bird. This ability will wake up your Kangaskhan earlier that your opponent would want. Scrappy allows Normal and Fighting type moves to hit a Ghost type, which is always good. It has the hidden ability Inner Focus which prevents flinching and allows Focus Punch to always be successful. When it Mega-evolves, Kangaskhan gets the ability Parental Bond. All of your attacks will hit twice but the second attack will do 50% less damage to accommodate the kid. This is useful because it can still inflict status conditions onto your opponent and now it gets twice the chance.
Kangaskhan is a beefy powerhouse. If given the chance (or three successful Power-Up Punches) it can tear through everything. And its kid is cute…but I just realized this makes Kangaskhan a cheater. If it gets a double hit on people then that means Mega-Kangaskhan turns the battle from 1 one 1 to 2 on 1….well that just sounds overwhelming! I recommend you use one for yourself, but you wouldn’t be missing much if you held out for a Snorlax or Tauros.
