Primeape (Japanese: オコリザル Okorizaru) is a Fighting-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Primeape with belt

Primeape is a monkey Pokémon. It always looks angry, whether or not it is actually angry. Unlike Mankey, it has metal braces around its wrists and ankles and no tail.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Primeape will have the same ability it had when it was a Mankey. Vital Spirit causes Primeape to be immune to sleeping. Anger Point increases Primeape's Attack when it is hit by a critical hit. Primeape are easier to anger than its pre-evolved form. When it attacks, it uses strong punches and kicks.

Evolution[edit | edit source]

Primeape is the evolved form of Mankey as of level 28.

In the anime[edit | edit source]

In the anime, Ash encountered a Mankey that he attempted to capture. It then stole his hat and evolved into a Primeape, but Ash managed to capture him. Later he entered the Primeape in a tournament for Fighting Pokémon so as to beat a man with a Hitmonchan and convince him to pay more attention to his family. His Primeape managed to win and Ash left it with the man to train it. Though at first Primeape seemed very aggressive towards Ash, he seemed to become very attached to his trainer, even having tears in his eyes when Ash decided to leave him to be trained.
