When I first started in the Pokémon world, I did not expect to love the game enough to want to plan a trip to Australia.
Although it would be nice to visit the Sydney Opera House or the Sydney Harbour Bridge, I am more excited 🤩about going to such locations as the Australian Passport Office.
Because that is where I can catch Kangaskhan: National Pokédex #115.
Although it would be so much better to hatch a Kangaskhan, this is not easy since it is a regional Pokémon.
Here is some insight on the Kangaskhan, a rare yet inspiringly nurturing Pokémon.
How Do You Get a Kangaskhan in Pokémon GO?
You can get Kangaskhan by traveling to Australia✈️, trading Pokémon, or participating in special events. Any player who resides in Australia will not have a hard time tracking the locations of Kangaskhan Pokémon.
All they will need is a Pogo Map to find these locations. For players residing outside Australia, trading Pokémon is the easiest way to get Kangaskhan Pokémon.
They will only have to identify a player willing to trade their Kangaskhan, organize a meeting, and receive it.
However, that is only possible if the trainer is on your friend list. If you participate in certain special events, such as the Ultra Unlock Part 2, which occurred in 2021, you stand a chance to catch Kangaskhan.
These events may include egg hatch events and mega raids that feature Kangaskhan.
Is Kangaskhan a Regional Pokémon?
Yes, Kangaskhan is a regional Pokémon. That means it can only spawn or get caught in a specific region: Australia😔. The same is the case with Corsola, Zangoose, and Volbeat Pokemon.
For this reason, players who do not live in Australia may have to visit Australia to catch Kangaskhan if they do not want to trade it with a trainer who caught it in Australia or wait on special events.
Notably, it is not unusual for Kangaskhan to migrate.
Where to Find Kangaskhan in Pokémon GO
Primarily, the only location in the world to find Kangaskhan is Australia (certain locations within the continent).
There are some locations where you can locate its nests and others where their habitats are. The table below summarizes some spots within Australia where the nests are.
However, a diligent player will visit the Pogo Map site and find the filter at the top-left corner. Filter for Kangaskhan, click it, and then locations for Kangaskhan will appear on the map.
Australian Passport Office
Waterloo, New South Wales.
Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
South Yarra, Victoria.
Clovelly, New South Wales.
Can You Get Kangaskhan in an Egg?
Yes, you can get Kangaskhan in an egg🥚. However, this is a rare occurrence mainly because Kangaskhan is a regional Pokémon.
Consequently, the only place in the world where Kangaskhan spawns is Australia. The only way a player in any other region can get Kangaskhan in an egg Pokémon is during special events and mega raids.
One of the most recent special events was the Global Challenge, Global Hatches, which occurred in 2019 as part of another event: Ultra Bonus Event.
The Kangaskhan was among the Pokémon that made a special appearance. Specifically, it was among those that hatched from 7-km Pokémon eggs that were available for a limited period.
Is a Kangaskhan Rare in Pokémon GO?
Yes, it is one of the rarer Pokémon in Pokémon GO. Since the Kangaskhan is region-locked (restricted to spawning in Australia), every player living outside Australia would classify the Pokémon as rare.
The population of such players is quite large.
For this reason, players are always on the lookout for special events featuring this Pokémon. Another reason for its rareness is that the Kangaskhan is an extreme overhunter.
Should You Catch a Baby Kangaskhan?
No, you should never attempt to catch a baby Kangaskhan. Being of the female gender, the Kangaskhan🦘 is a nurturer who carries a baby in its pouch.
Its primary objective is protecting its young, which is why the Pokémon can comfortably move fast even when carrying the baby.
When the mother deems it safe, which is rare, it lets the baby out of its pouch to play while staying close by.
If you dare to try catching, disturbing, or attacking its young, the Kangaskhan will violently retaliate 👿by deploying its signature moves, like the comet punch.
Since I started playing Pokemon at a tender age, my love for the game kept growing. My passion is what inspired me to pursue video game journalism. This helped me gain immersive experience of 5 years. I have a lot of expertise in the gaming industry since I have been editing game-related content for a long time. Since I have also been studying this game in-depth for years, I am now a professional player. My desire is to share everything I know about Pokemon to help you broaden your knowledge on the game.
