Kangaskhan are a kangaroo-like Pokémon with vaguely theropod-like features. They are large, bipedal creatures with a thick tail. Kangaskhan are colored brown with accentuations of cream on their horn-like ears and belly, and black on the helmet-like patch on their head. Kangaskhan have red irises, fangs protruding from their upper jaw, epaulette-like patches on their shoulders, and square patches on their legs. Kangaskhan also have various ridges and patches down their back and two spikes on their tail. Kangaskhan carry around a little purple baby Kangaskhan in their pouch. The baby Kangaskhan lacks the ridges and patches on its mother’s body, and its small fangs are not visible outside of its mouth.
Kangaskhan is a female-only species with no male counterpart.
Kangaskhan can use the move Outrage, which can normally only be learned by Dragon-type Pokémon. She has a fighting spirit that is nearly indestructible, therefore she will never give up in battle. Kangaskhan are skilled at using Comet Punch and Dizzy Punch.
Kangaskhan are very nurturing to their young and other Kangaskhan. However, if anyone tries to touch or harm their young the parent Kangaskhan will viciously attack the person trying to harm the baby Kangaskhan. When its mother is executing a move or striking a pose, the baby may imitate her actions. To avoid crushing the baby Kangaskhan that she carries in her pouch, she always sleeps standing up.
Kangaskhan appear mostly in jungle-like areas. They have been imported to Kanto and Johto for their respective Safari Zones.
