Mega Kangaskhan is a Normal type Mega Raid boss. Optimal raid counters will be Fighting types, as it is 2x weak to Fighting, and it is their only weakness.

Depending on your levels and counters, we would recommend 3-5 trainers who are high level, and more if you don’t have optimal teams.

This guide will tell you how to beat this Motherly Mega, as well as its optimal stats, moves and CP range.

Mega Kangaskhan Counters

Since Shadow Pokémon are extremely expensive to power up and require specific events to remove Frustration with a Charge TM, they will NOT be listed as raid counters in this article. That being said, if you have the shadow form of a listed raid counter Pokémon powered up and TMed, use it.

Let’s check out the top raid counters for Mega Kangaskhan:

Mega Kangaskhan has a limited group of counters thanks to only having that single weakness, but many trainers will find they have a solid raid team of Fighting types thanks to previous raid bosses. Other top picks include Blaziken, Heracross, Emboar, Sirfetch’d and Toxicroak with Fighting moves, any Megas for general DPS, Mewtwo with Focus Blast.

How to Get Mega Kangaskhan

You cannot catch Kangaskhan in its mega evolved form from the raid. The mega raid boss is always catchable in its base form and as such, the CP ranges are for a regular Kangaskhan.

Kangaskhan can be caught with the following CP values:

  • 2112 – 220 CP no weather boost
  • 2640 – 2750 CP boosted by Partly Cloudy weather boost

In order to get Mega Kangaskhan you will need 200 Mega Energy for the initial evolution. Once you Mega Evolve a Pokémon for the first time, Mega Energy will no longer be required for that specific Pokémon to Mega Evolve again. Instead, the Pokémon will become exhausted after its Mega Evolution and need to rest before being Mega Evolved again. In other words, there is now a cooldown period after you Mega Evolve a Pokémon. You can level up your Mega Pokémon in order to decrease this cooldown period.

Kangaskhan Shiny

Like all Mega Raid Bosses, you can catch the shiny version of Kangaskhan from a raid.
