If you want to catch Kangaskhan outside of Australia or earn Kangaskhan Mega Energy in Pokemon GO, you’ll need to win a Mega Kangaskhan Raid. However, that’s easier said than done!

To beat Mega Kangaskhan, you will ideally need a team of at least three players. However, it is possible to defeat it solo or with a team of two trainers if you have powerful enough counters.

Below, you can find out everything you need to know to defeat Mega Kangaskhan, including its weakness, and the best Pokemon to counter it!

What Type is Mega Kangaskhan?

Mega Kangaskhan is a Normal-type Mega Pokemon.

This simple typing means that it has just one weakness and one resistance. While it makes it easy to decide which Pokemon to use to counter it, being a Normal-type severely limits how many counters there are!
