Pokémon Go Mega Kangaskhan weakness, counters and best Kangaskhan moveset

How to beat the Mega version of Kangaskhan.

Mega Kangaskhan is Mega Evolution of Kangaskhan, the Gen 1 Pokémon that has proven rather elusive over the years in Pokémon Go.

This is due to its regional exclusive release - but thanks to the arrival of the Mega version in raids in April 2022, means it is now far more accessible across the world.

However, you will still need to beat it - which is where learning about the Mega Kangaskhan counters and Mega Kangaskhan weakness will come in handy.
