Pokémon GO Kangaskhan Raid Guide

Here’s some frequently asked questions and important tips about Kangaskhan raids in Pokémon GO for February 2021.

When do Kangaskhan Raids Begin and End in February 2021

Kangaskhan will begin appearing in three star raids in Pokémon GO on Saturday, February 20 at 9 am in your local time zone during the Pokémon Go Tour: Kanto event. They will only be found in these raids through the end of the day when Pokémon GO Fest: Kanto ends at 9 pm local time.

How Many Players are Needed

Considering Kangaskhan is a three star raid, this one shouldn’t be too hard for you to take down. Depending on what level you are and the counters you have, you should be able to easily take them down with only a couple players, but having more is never going to hurt.

What CP for 100% IVs for Kangaskhan

Kangaskhan will be encountered at 1405 CP to 1477 CP. The higher CP means it is 100% perfect in terms of IVs so you should do your best to catch it if you’re lucky enough to find one.

Can Kangaskhan be Shiny, How to Get Shiny Kangaskhan

Yes, shiny Kangaskhan is possible to catch in February 2021 in Pokémon GO during Pokémon GO Tour: Kanto, though shiny Kangaskhan has been available in the past as well in Australia. Your odds of catching one should be somewhere in the range of one in twenty, though Niantic likes to tweak this a lot without making any announcements. The more raids you win the better chances you have at a shiny Kangaskhan, so you will want to make sure to keep raiding until you finally find one.

And that’s our how to catch Kangaskhan guide for Pokémon GO Tour Kanto, with all the best counters in Pokémon GO.
