Parental Bond (ability)


Parental Bond allows the ability-bearer to attack twice. The second attack hits with 25% of the power, so in effect it is equivalent to a 25% boost to all attacks.

Parental Bond is the signature ability of Mega Kangaskhan. When the ability is in use, the mother and child each attack.


In Generation 6, the second attack of Parental Bond hits with 50% power of the first.
