It evolves from Mankey at level 28.

Biology

Physiology

Primeape has a round body covered in whitish, messy fur. Primeape's arms and legs are colored brown. 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 Template:Type2 Pokémon.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Primeape's abilities are similar to those of its pre-evolution, Mankey, only stronger. 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. A Primeape will chase anyone that makes it upset and won't give up until it catches it quarry.

Habitat

Primeape can be found in vibrant forests or in mountains.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Both Ash Ketchum and Butch have or have had a Primeape. Ash left his Primeape behind in Kanto with Anthony to become a champion fighter.

Wobbu-palooza featured a Primeape belonging to a Festival Crasher.

In A Tyrogue Full of Trouble, a Primeape was causing problems for a small town along with its pre-evolution and a Tyrogue. A trainer named Kiyo was able to capture the Tyrogue, and the Mankey and Primeape joined up with him.

In the manga

Chuck owns a Primeape, seen in Template:PSV working out with him and his Poliwrath. Together with Poliwrath, it used DynamicPunch to reveal Suicune's presence in the ocean off the Cianwood coast.

Game data

Pokédex entries

Generation I
Red Always furious and tenacious to boot. It will not abandon chasing its quarry until it is caught.
Blue
Yellow It stops being angry only when nobody else is around. To view this moment is very difficult.
Stadium When enraged, it gives chase endlessly. Because it is impossible to tell what made it angry, there is no soothing it.
Generation II
Gold If approached while asleep, it may awaken and angrily give chase in a groggy state of semi-sleep.
Silver It becomes wildly furious if it even senses someone looking at it. It chases anyone that meets its glare.
Crystal It will beat up anyone who makes it mad, even if it has to chase them until the end of the world.
Stadium 2 If approached while asleep, it may awaken and angrily give chase in a groggy state of semi-sleep.
Generation III
Ruby When Primeape becomes furious, its blood circulation is boosted. In turn, its muscles are made even stronger. However, it also becomes much less intelligent at the same time.
Sapphire When Primeape becomes furious, its blood circulation is boosted. In turn, its muscles are made even stronger. However, it also becomes much less intelligent at the same time.
Emerald When it becomes furious, its blood circulation becomes more robust, and its muscles are made stronger. But it also becomes much less intelligent.

LeafGreen Always furious and tenacious to boot. It will not abandon chasing its quarry until it catches up.

Trivia

  • It is capable of learning Iron Tail despite not having a visible tail. This may likely be due to the fact that Mankey (its pre-evolution) has a tail.
  • Every sprite, anime appearance and artwork of Primeape always shows it having a bulge on its head.
  • Its Platinum sprite is almost the same as its Diamond/Pearl sprite, only with a bigger nose.
  • All of its sprites have the agitated blood vessel mark.

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's name may be a combination of prime and ape. It is also likely that its name is a play on the word primate. Its Japanese name can be taken to mean 怒り猿, angry monkey.
