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

It evolves from Mankey starting at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Primeape has a round body covered in whitish, messy fur. Primeape's ears are triangular with pink insides, its arms and legs are colored brown and the tail it had as a Mankey has disappeared, despite its body style saying that it still retains it. Primeape has metal shackles on its wrists and ankles; this is probably indicative of a method of training with weights. The forepaws seem to resemble boxing gloves, alluding to its nature as a Fighting-type Pokémon. Primeape has a stress mark on the left side of its forehead.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Primeape's abilities are similar to those of its pre-evolution, Mankey, only stronger. When Primeape becomes furious, its blood circulation is boosted. In turn, Primeape's muscles are made even stronger. However, it also becomes much less intelligent at the same time. Since Primeape is a fully evolved Pokémon, it is capable of using Hyper Beam and Giga Impact.

Behavior

Primeape are easily angered. Even the slightest glance of eye contact will make it furious. If approached while asleep, it may awaken and angrily give chase in a groggy state of semi-sleep. A Primeape will chase anyone that makes it upset and won't give up until it catches its quarry.

Habitat

Primeape can be found in vibrant forests or in mountains. Kanto is the best place to find them, although they can be found in Sinnoh as well.

Trivia

Origin

Considering its pig-like nose, its coloring, and tendency to fly into a rage if eye contact is made, Primeape has much in common with baboons.

Name origin

Primeape may be a combination of prime and ape, as well as being a pun on primate.

Okorizaru can be taken to mean 怒り猿 (angry monkey). Alternatively, it could be a combination of 怒って okotte (angry), 怒り ikari (anger), and 猿 saru (monkey).
