How to catch Kangaskhan in Pokemon Go

Kangaskhan can primarily be found in Australia. Given its resemblance to a kangaroo, it’s not much of a shock that Kangaskhan spawns in an area well-known for its large swaths of kangaroos.

The reason for this is because Kangaskhan is a regional-exclusive Pokemon in Pokemon Go, This means that wild Kangaskhan can be only found in one specific region in the world.

Unless one lives or visits Australia, it’s highly unlikely that a player outside of that region will encounter a Kangaskhan. However, that doesn’t mean it is impossible.

Occasionally, several regional-exclusive Pokemon can be found in the wild thanks to special events, like Pokemon Go Fest or the game’s annual Tour events. Raid Days are also another option, provided that Niantic holds one that features Kangaskhan or Mega Kangaskhan in the future.

Pokemon Go players will be in luck come late November 2023, thanks to the Party Up event. Mega Kangaskhan will be in Raids during the event, which will take place from November 22-27.
