Mega Kangaskhan Revealed for Pokémon X & Y, Crowd Goes Wild
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Pokémon World Champions crowned in Vancouver
A new official trailer shows the previously confirmed Mega Evolutions in a fairly flashy way, with the exception of Mega Kangaskhan, which you can see in the original article below.
For those unaware, the Pokémon World Championships have taken place in Vancouver, with six Pokémon Trading Card Game and Video Game World Champions crowned; it was the 10th Anniversary for the tournament, with competitors from over 25 countries taking part. The event was also used to build excitement for Pokémon X & Y, with the game's Director Junichi Masuda revealing a new Mega Evolution — the new feature that caused quite a stir when announced — Mega Kangaskhan.
This new evolution makes use of Kangaskhan's offspring, which allows the 'mon to attack twice. As you can see in the video below, those in attendance at the World Championships were rather excited by the reveal.
But what about the competition itself? Six winners all received a special trophy, a trip to next year’s World Championships in Washington DC and scholarship money; the champions are below.
- 2013 Pokémon TCG Junior Division World Champion, Ondrej Kujal from Czech Republic.
- 2013 Pokémon Video Game Junior Division World Champion, Brendan Zheng from United States.
