The name "Mankey" could be a portmanteau of the words "Monkey" and "Lanky", or simply a misspelling of the word 'Manky', slang for 'dirty'. Its species classification is "Pig Monkey". Mankey resembles a white fluffball with arms, legs, and a tail sticking out. Its face features red eyes and a prominent, pig-like snout. Mankey is known to fly into rages when it is disturbed.

Biological Characteristics

Mankey are light and agile. They live in groups in the treetops. If one loses sight of its group, then it becomes infuriated with loneliness.


Mankey is extremely quick to anger. It could be docile one moment, then thrashing away the next. It will not hesitate to attack anything, and they often attack handy targets in groups for no reason. If it does get violently enraged, it is unsafe to approach as it can't distinguish between friends and foes.


It is easy to tell when it becomes angry as it starts shaking and its nasal breathing turns rough. However, due to the speed of its anger it is impossible for anyone to flee its wrath.


In the Pokémon video games

In the first generation, it is only found in Red and Yellow as a very common Pokémon in the earlier paths in the games. In the second generation, it is only available in Gold on Routes 9 and 42. In FireRed/LeafGreen, it is only found in several routes and in the Rock Tunnel.


Mankey evolves into the much stronger Primeape at level 28. It is severely lacking in all of its stats, except Speed and Attack. It has the innate trait Vital Spirit (cannot be put to sleep). Primeape ) is one of 493 fictional species of Pokémon in the Pokémon franchise. ...


Mankey is not very popular for battling, due to the fact that it is unevolved and has low stats. However, many people use Mankey early on in Red/Yellow/FireRed/LeafGreen, due to its very useful Fighting type moves such as Low Kick. The latest moves Mankey can learn are usually Screech or Thrash.


Mankey are also found in the Nintendo 64 game Pokémon Snap in the Valley Course. They will be hopping around at solitary places somewhat far away from the camera, but they are integral to two important events in the course. One, hitting a Magikarp near a Mankey will cause Magikarp to be launched further down the course, where the Magikarp can be evolved into a Gyarados for photograpphing. Also, near the end of the course, a Mankey on a mountaintop can be knocked down by a withdrawn Squirtle hit by a Pester Ball as a Bowling Pin can be struck down by a bowling ball (lining up the two Pokémon for this is crucial). The knocked down Mankey will be much closer up for photographing, and that Mankey can be hit by another ball so that it will land on a nearby button that opens up an alternative exit which will lead to the Pokémon Signs subquest.

A group of Mankey appeared in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon for the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance at Uproar Forest. Once the protaganist defeats them, the Mankey will return, but change their minds for revenge, as the player receives a chestnut from Wynaut and Wobbuffet. Mankey love chestnuts, but there's this spiky shell that the Mankey can't open, so they agree to work on the rescue team base for three chestnuts. After the partner of the protaganist says they don't need to find any more chestnuts, the Mankey try to destroy the base, but are quickly defeated.

Anime Appearances

The first Mankey that appeared was in the episode right before Ash Ketchum and co. were heading for Celedon City. While Brock was cooking some of his rice donuts, the passing Mankey picked up the scent and stole one. Ash then decided to try to catch that Mankey while it was eating which eventually angered it that it took his hat and evolved into a Primeape and ran after the group. But just as Primeape got the three of them surrounded into a dead end, the Primeape wearing Ash's hat awakens Ketchum's humiliation side that Ash himself becomes a Primeape-like to get it back with the help of both his Charmander and his own well-done knuckle-sandwich. And after the two of them finally beats up the angry Primeape, Ash catches it and later uses it to beat out Team Rocket. The Pokémon anime metaseries, based on the video game series, was created in Japan and was then adapted for the North American television market. ...
