If you want to know how to get Kangaskhan in Pokemon GO in 2023, you’re in the right place. Mind you, I don’t have really great news; unless you live in the land down under, obtaining a Kaganskhan is going to be a chore. But, if you want to get the highest tier of Kanto medal, you’ll have to go through it. Here’s how it all works.
How to Get Kangaskhan in Pokemon GO 2023
To get Kangaskhan in Pokemon GO in 2023 (and since the earliest days of the game), you need to go to Australia. Yup, just like Tauros and several others, Kangaskhan is a region-locked Pokemon. Aside from certain (and very rare) events, you cannot find it outside of Australia. Now, obviously, not everyone can afford a trip to a different continent just to catch a Pokemon. Is there an alternative? Of course there is: you need to find a person that has recently been in Australia and lives close enough for you to meet up. Because Niantic hates us all, the maximum distance to trade is a hundred meters. You can look for these people in forums like r/TheSilphRoad and r/PokemonGO. Just be careful who you come within a hundred meters of (that’s about 330 feet, by the way).
And there you go, that’s how you get Kangaskhan in Pokemon GO. It’s incredibly annoying that the developers won’t let people trade worldwide, but it is what it is. And if you’re wondering why Kangaskhan is even that important, well, it isn’t really. Unless you want the Platinum Kanto Medal, that is. In order to get it, you have to have all 151 Kanto Pokemon registered in your Pokedex. Yes, that includes all region-locked Pokemon, the legendary birds, and even Mew and Mewtwo. Speaking of Mew, be sure to take part in the Masterwork Research 151 tasks to get a chance to catch one as a reward.
