Pokemon GO: Mega Kangaskhan Raid Guide – Best Counters, Weakness

Find out how to defeat and catch Mega Kangaskhan in raids! The best counters, weaknesses, and everything else you need to know!

The “Mega Moment” event is in full swing! Trainers are completing special research to unlock powerful Mega Evolutions.

While the event mostly focuses on Mega Evolutions that have already existed in the game, it also introduces one new one. This new Mega ‘Mon is the terrifying Mega Kangaskhan!

Mega Kangaskhan is one of the most powerful Normal-type Pokemon in the game. We recommend you catch this powerful ‘Mon to add to your battle team!

To catch Mega Kangaskhan, trainers will need to first defeat it in a raid battle. This means you have to battle an incredibly strong Pokemon with other trainers.

Once the Pokemon is defeated, its CP will drop to a lower level, and trainers will have the opportunity to catch it. We recommend stocking up on Razz Berries and Golden Razz Berries, as Mega Kangaskhan is a difficult Pokemon to catch!

If you’re in need of Golden Razz Berries, try the Free Daily Box Trick to get some rare items!

Of course, in order to catch Mega Kangaskhan, you need to be able to defeat it. Here’s our expert guide to defeating Mega Kangaskhan in a raid!

Best Mega Kangaskhan Raid Counters

As with all Mega raids, Mega Kangaskhan is impossible to defeat with just one trainer. We recommend tackling Mega Kangaskhan with at least two other friends to ensure you don’t waste your raid passes.

While Mega Kangaskhan is a difficult raid boss, we have everything you need to know in order to win the raid. Let’s GO!

Mega Kangaskhan Stats and Type

Mega Kangaskhan is a powerful Pokemon with a frighteningly high attack. It has the following stats in Pokemon GO:

  • Max CP: 4353
  • Attack: 246
  • Defense: 210
  • Stamina: 233

Additionally, it is a Normal-type. Normal-typed Pokemon only have one resistance in Pokemon GO – a double resistance to Ghost.

This means that you shouldn’t go into battle using Ghost-type Pokemon, as it can resist their attacks. Fortunately, Mega Kangaskhan has one weakness to exploit!

Just like other Normal-types, Mega Kangaskhan has a weakness to Fighting-type moves. This means it’s a great idea to take on Mega Kangaskhan using powerful Fighting attacks!

Mega Kangaskhan is a difficult Pokemon to face because of its high stats and unpredictable movepool. Because of this, the best Pokemon to bring to a Mega Kangaskhan Raid are strong Fighting-type Pokemon.
