Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has added a surprising new evolution called Annihilape, and we’ll run you through the steps you need to carry out to obtain one of these fearsome-looking Pokemon.

Coming up with brand new designs and concepts for Pokemon for a ninth generation and over 1000 Pokemon later must be tough. This is why it’s fun to hark back to OG Pokemon and reinvent them for a new generation, which is exactly what Pokemon Scarlet and Violet do with Annihilape.

The evolution line now goes Mankey, Primeape, and now Annihilape, with the descendent of the original Kanto-based duo roaming the lands of Paldea.

Its dark origins say that the Pokemon was born of a Primeape that became so angry and furious it basically died and came back as Annihilape. On the plus side, the conditions to add the Pokemon to your party aren’t quite as dark and foreboding, so let’s run through them.

How to evolve Primeape into Annihilape Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

If you have yourself a Primeape in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, then you will need to get it to use a certain move multiple times and then level it up to get it to evolve into Annihilape.

Here are the exact instructions you will need to follow:

  1. Make sure you get yourself a Primeape by either catching one or leveling up a Mankey.
  2. Put it in the number one slot in your party.
  3. Now, keep battling either wild Pokemon or fellow Trainers.
  4. You need to use the Rage Fist move 20 times and make sure it lands every time.
  5. Once you’ve done that, level up Primeape one more time and you should be able to evolve it into Annihilape.

How to find Mankey in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

If you want to catch the Pokemon that started this crazy chain of angry pig-monkey creatures, then you can find a Mankey in Area One, Two, and Five in the South Province. Or, it can also be located in the West Province, specifically Area One and Three in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet.

As you can see, they’re quite common and you shouldn’t have much trouble capturing one.

Where to catch Primeape in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

You can get a Primeape in one of two different ways, you can either Level a Mankey up until it reaches Level 28, and then evolve it, or catch one in the wild.

If you prefer to catch one, then we’ll inform you that they are found in Area One and Three in the Western Province, or just Area One in the North Province.
