Evolving Primeape into Annihilape in  Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

Firstly, and it goes without saying, you’ll need to have Primeape in your Pokedex. It is an evolution of Mankey who completes its transformation at Level 28. Once that is taken care of, the hard part begins. However, if you follow these steps you won’t have to worry much.

For you to be able to evolve Primeape, you will have to use a specific move called ‘Rage Fist’. This move can be taught to Primeape once it reaches Level 35. You will have to use this move for a specific number of times during battles. To be precise, at least 20 times. The good news is that you don’t need to use these consecutively. Just use it anywhere and anytime until you complete the target.

You only have to level up your Primeape for the transformation to take place. Your Primeape will simply evolve into the brand-new Ghost monkey – Annihilape – the next time you level up!

The powerful Annihilape becomes a Fighting/Ghost type in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet. It evolved from Primeape after its uncontrollable rage couldn’t be contained by its miniscure physical form. As a result, Annihilape’s raging soul has no constraints now because there’s no physical body to hold it back. Thus, making Annihilape all the more frightening and incredibly tough.
