Mankey Evolution

Updated on March 24, 2012

Mankey Evolution

Like most Pokemon, Mankey is able to evolve. there are all sorts of ways that Pokemon can evolve during the main RPG games, from needing a specific item, to having to learn a set move.

But the majority of evolutions are fairly straight forward, simply being done upon levelling up. This is true of the Mankey evolution into Primeape, simply a case of levelling up the Pokemon.

In the case of the Mankey evolution this takes place at level 28 (though of course you can delay it with an everstone or pressing B on the evolution screen), when it evolves into Primeape.

Mankey - A Generation 1 Pokemon

Mankey is one of the 'originals', being a generation 1 Pokemon. These Pokemon are often looked back on with great sentiment by Pokemon fans, and Mankey is no exception.

Indeed Ash briefly had a Mankey in the anime, though he gave it up to allow it to take part in the P1 boxing championship.

It is, of course, still available in the latest generation of Pokemon - Black and White. It swarms, on route 15, and also is available in the Dream World in the recently released Rugged Mountain area.

Because it is now released in the Dream World, Mankey, and the Mankey evolution Primeape, now has all 3 possible abilities available.

  • Vital Spirit
  • Hidden Ability
  • Defiant (the Dram World ability)
