Mega Kangaskhan announced for Pokémon X and Y


Game Freak director Junichi Masuda made an appearance at this weekend’s Pokémon World Championships 2013, sharing news of a further Pokémon capable of performing a Mega Evolution.

Once it has done so, the infant which it carries within its protective pouch appears outside, granting it use of a new ability called Parental Bond that allows them to attack twice in a single turn.

The Pokémon, which appeared within original titles Red and Blue, joins a Mega Evolution roster that already includes Mega Blaziken, Mega Lucario, and Mega Mewtwo.

Pokémon X and Y will launch exclusively for Nintendo 3DS worldwide on October 12th.
