Mega Kangaskhan revealed at Pokemon World Championship

Oh baby!

The newly revealed "Mega Evolution" feature in Pokemon X/Y seems to have sparked the interest many who were otherwise lukewarm towards the release. These mid-battle transformations appear to be true game changers, altering the potential combat prowess in both series favorites and frequently overlooked combatants in ways that are continually surprising. The other Mega Evolutions announced so far have all been graced with ridiculous, wondrous locks, but Mega Kangaskhan appears to buck that trend. Instead of a new coif, Kangaskhan gains the support of her previously pouched offspring. A baby hops out of Mama's belly and joins the dramatic battle, doubling the Pokemon's amount of attacks. 

The Pokemon series is notoriously weird when it comes to defining what constitutes a single combatant. A group of angry-faced eggs? That's one Pokemon. Three dopey looking heads sticking out of the ground? Yep, also just one Pokemon. A Pokemon and its child? Also totally just one Pokemon. This bizarre new interpretation of basic math combined with clear issues of child endangerment make Mega Kangaskhan one of the most controversial Pokemon in recent memory. 

Those issues don't seem to bother the crowds at Vancouver's Pokemon World Championship one bit. Many have fantasized about Kangaskhan's pampered protegee finally entering the fray for years, and now that it's finally happening, they do not appear to be disappointed. Nothing turns on the crowd like seeing a little purple marsupial lizard baby get violent.
