Kangaskhan (Japanese: ガルーラ Garura) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

While it is not known to evolve to or from any other Pokémon, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Kangaskhan using the Kangaskhanite.

Biology

Kangaskhan is a large, bipedal creature with a thick tail. It has a brown hide with several raised patches, and a cream-colored belly. On top of its head is a black patch, and it has large cream-colored ears and red eyes. Its snout is short and rounded with two pointed teeth protruding from its upper jaw. There are epaulette-like growths over its shoulders and a row of spikes down its back. It has three clawed digits on each hand and foot. In the pouch on its belly, it carries a baby Kangaskhan. Unlike its parent, the baby is light purple and has smooth skin. Kangaskhan is a female-only species with no male counterpart.

As Mega Kangaskhan, the mother Kangaskhan appears unchanged. However, the baby has grown into a child and gained some new features. There are now raised patches on its knees similar to those seen on its mother. These patches also appear aligned horizontally along its belly. Small, spiked growths appear underneath its ears. The child is feisty, hates to lose and will boldly challenge its opponents to protect its mother.[1]

Kangaskhan is a nurturing Pokémon that protects its young at all costs. The baby leaves the pouch only rarely until it is three years old. In order to avoid crushing the baby, Kangaskhan sleeps standing up. If the mother feels the environment is safe, it will allow its young out to play. However, it will violently attack anything that it sees as a threat to its young. Regardless of how badly injured it becomes, the mother will not cease fighting until its young is safe. Although it was nearly hunted to extinction, Kangaskhan can be found in savannahs and other grasslands.

In the manga

A mother Kangaskhan in Pokémon Adventures
A baby Kangaskhan in Pokémon Adventures.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Garu and Kogaru

Kangaskhan debuted in its own round in the Red, Green & Blue chapter, The Secret of Kangaskhan. Here, Blue tries to catch one but is stopped by Red when he (Red) realizes Kangaskhan is protecting its baby. The baby was poisoned, so Red used an Antidote to heal it. Kangaskhan is grateful and leaves; Blue watched this in amazement, but was still angry at Red for allowing Kangaskhan to escape, thus starting their rivalry.

In Quilava Quandry, the Day-Care Couple used a Kangaskhan to train Gold.

Mega Kangaskhan in Pokémon Adventures.

In a flashback of Agatha's, Professor Oak is seen with a Kangaskhan on his team from their league battle over two decades ago, and uses it to fight the bitter woman's Gengar, winning the match after hours. He still has it by the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, and it is beaten both by the Team Rocket member Orm and Guile Hideout along with most of his other Pokémon, including his newly evolved Fearow. It has not been seen since.

Diamond's mother, Johanna, owns a Kangaskhan.

Garu, the mother Kangaskhan, and Kogaru, the baby Kangaskhan, are the first known Pokémon of X. Using X's Mega Ring, Kogaru can Mega Evolve and fight on her mother's behalf.

In The Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

A Kangaskhan was seen with Tommy in Pikachu's Excellent Adventure.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

In the second special chapter of the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga, Mars has a Kangaskhan which she uses against Deoxys. Kangaskhan succeeded in critically wounding it. After using Outrage on Deoxys, she became confused and started to attack everything around her due to the side effect of Outrage. She also smashed her own Poké Ball while on rampage. Kangaskhan was eventually defeated by Deoxys in Attack Forme.

Trivia

Kangaskhan and its 4 HM moves
  • The glitch Pokémon 'M (00) evolves into Kangaskhan. This is due to Kangaskhan's position in the game's internal programming.
    • Since 'M (00) can learn Cut and Fly by using HM01 and HM02, it is possible to have a Kangaskhan who knows 4 HM moves by using HM03 and HM04 after the evolution.
  • Kangaskhan is the last non-Legendary Pokémon in the Fiore Browser.
  • Even with the advent of breeding and baby Pokémon, Although its now part of the mega evolution, the baby Kangaskhan has yet to be considered an official Pokémon, and as a result, all Kangaskhan are born with a baby already in their pouch
    • This is similar to what happens when a Chansey/Blissey breeds (without holding a Luck Incense), as the offspring will have an Egg already in its pouch.

Origin

Kangaskhan is based on a kangaroo with elements of Mongolian Laminar armour, evident in its helmet-like plate with ear flaps and its epaulettes.

Name origin

Kangaskhan may be a combination of kangaroo and Genghis Khan, who was a founder of the Mongol Empire. This possibly is in reference to how its Pokédex data refers to how violently protective it is of its child.

Garura is derived from カンガルー (kangaroo) and ルーラー (ruler).
