Pokédex entry
Although Primeapes have always been mean, lately they seem to be becoming even more vicious and frenzied.


Dark Primeape in the anime
  • This card's Pokédex entry incorrectly uses the plural of Primeape as Primeapes.
  • This card appeared in an episode of the anime, Bad to the Bone, as one of the items owned by James of Team Rocket. Dark Primeape and the other cards were replaced with photographs of James in the dub version.


Frenzied Attack seems to be based on Thrash, a move in the Pokémon games that Primeape can learn.
