[Edited] Kangaskhan Abilities: Scrappy, Early Bird, Inner Focus (DW) Type: Normal HP 105 Atk 95 Def 80 SpA 40 SpD 80 Spe 90 Mega-Kangaskhan Ability: Parental bond (Allows the pokemon to attack twice. The second attack is half as powerful) Type: Normal HP 105 Atk 125 Def 100 SpA 60 SpD 100 Spe 100 New Moves: Power-up Punch The introduction of Mega-Kangaskhan will most likely result in a huge boost in usage for the kangaroo as Kanga has one of the highest effective base attack stats of any poke in the game thanks to its new ability Parental bond. With maxed attack and an Adamant nature its Atk stat goes up to 383, when you take into account Parental bond this stat gets boosted all the way to 574.5 with the added ability to smash through sturdy, sashes and subs. Set: Wrath of KhanKangaskhan (Motherfucker) @ Kanghaskhanite Ability: Scrappy EVs: 252 Spe / 252 Atk / 4 Hp Jolly Nature - Return/ Body Slam* - Sucker Punch - Earthquake/ Fire Punch*/ Drain Punch* - Power-up Punch/ Substitute This is a set i came up quickly so i'm sure there will be far more creative or effective sets that come into usage but even with this it can wreck pretty much every physical wall in the game, let alone OU. The fact it gets access to the new move Power-up Punch means that it can pick off weakened foes and get a +2 boost at the same time. If the opponent has a ghost type, you can circumvent this problem by not mega-evolving immediately, allowing you to hit the ghost with the scrappy ability and gain a +1 boost. Alternatively, running sub blocks status on the turn of the switch to a ghost, forcing them to attack you making it easy to smash them with a sucker punch. If you opt for sub, drain punch is the better coverage move so that you can minimise residual damage. Combine this with priority in the form of Sucker-Punch, great coverage in Earthquake, a decent speed tier for OU (fantastic speed for Uber) and very respectable bulk and you have a very very scary mon. calcs (Move your mouse to reveal the content) calcs (open) calcs (close) In these calcs I changed Return's bp to 153 but kept the base stat of 125 Atk the same. Changing Kanga's Atk stat to 763 gave no change. +2 252 Atk (custom) Return vs. 252 HP / 4 Def Hippowdon: 420-495 (100 - 117.85%) -- guaranteed OHKO +2 252 Atk (custom) Return vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Hippowdon: 312-367 (74.28 - 87.38%) -- guaranteed 2HKO +2 252 Atk (custom) Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 48+ Def Ferrothorn: 220-259 (62.5 - 73.57%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Stealth Rock +2 252 Atk (custom) Return vs. 224 HP / 252+ Def Skarmory: 138-162 (42.2 - 49.54%) -- 35.55% chance to 2HKO after Stealth Rock +2 252 Atk (custom) Return vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Slowbro: 328-387 (83.24 - 98.22%) -- 68.75% chance to OHKO after Stealth Rock +2 252 Atk (custom) Return vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Eviolite Chansey: 643-757 (91.33 - 107.52%) -- guaranteed OHKO after Stealth Rock Anyone else scared? Set: Revenge killer Kangaskhan @ Kangaskhanite Ability: Scrappy EVs: 252 Atk / 240 Spe / 12 Hp Adamant nature - Fake Out - Sucker Punch - Return - Drain Punch*/ Earthquake Pretty much acting exactly as i has been in this past generation, Kanga can hit any fast threat for huge damage, preventing sweeps or just generally wearing down opponents. Speed investment is to speed creep positive natured base 85s (Nidoking, Heracross, Suicune etc). *denotes only available through pokebank. Checks: Mega-Lucario, Skarmory, Bronzong, Scarfed fighting types, Ghosts, particularly trevanant Mega-luke outspeedsand ohkos with cc but if it hasn't mega-evolved by the time kanga has, it's gonna be taking a PuP or EQ to the face. Skarm can whirlwind it away, wear it down with rocky helmet and set up on it with spikes. 1 on 1 though, it's gonna lose to PuP. Scarfed fighters generally don't care about sucker punch but frailer ones such as mienshao are much shakier checks. ghosts can burn it and what not, offensive ones must be wary of the sucker punch. Credit to user Innocent Criminal when you combine her fantastic 105/100/100defenses with Wish, Knock Off and a ridiculously powerful Seisnic Toss, she supports the team like no other and there isn't much your opponent can do against it. Kangaskhan (F) @ Kangaskhanite Ability: Early Bird EVs: 36 SDef / 252 HP / 220 Def or 252 SDef / 252 HP / 4 Def Impish/Careful Nature - Seismic Toss - Wish - Protect - Knock Off/Crunch The EV spread can be tweaked depending on your team, and the first one gives her optimal physical bulk while letting her survive Mega Gengar's Focus Blast after Rocks to OHKO with Crunch. Going mixed is viable as well, but I didn't find speed investment to be as helpful as bulk. If Gengarite is banned, I don't see much reason to run Crunch at all. To give you an idea of how bulky she is, using the physical spread: 252+ Atk Choice Band Technician Scizor Bullet Punch vs. 252 HP / 222+ Def Mega Kangaskhan: 120-142 (28.9 - 34.2%) 252 SpA Rotom-W Hydro Pump vs. 252 HP / 36 SpD Mega Kangaskhan: 150-177 (36.2 - 42.7%) +1 252+ Atk Life Orb Gyarados Waterfall vs. 252 HP / 222+ Def Mega Kangaskhan: 200-238 (48.3 - 57.4%) 252+ Atk Choice Band Technician Breloom Mach Punch vs. 252 HP / 222+ Def Mega Kangaskhan: 240-284 (57.9 - 68.5%) 252 SpA Life Orb Keldeo Secret Sword vs. 252 HP / 222+ Def Mega Kangaskhan: 265-315 (64 - 76%) She has plenty of opportunities to come in, and every time that happens she will achieve something significant. 90% of the metagame is 2HKOed by Seismic Toss, 252/252 Bold Jellicent is 2HKOed by Knock Off and even if you mispredict, nothing enjoys losing its item. That kind of pressure makes Wish-passing a breeze, and with Protect to heal herself Kangaskhan can outright beat most Pokémon she hits on the switchand she outright wins one-on-one against a significant amount of Pokémon. This set sure isn't sweeping left and right, but it supports a team like no other.
