How to evolve Primeape to Annihilape in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet

Surely you want to have the fearsome Annihilape, Primeape's new Fighting and Ghost type evolution, so we tell you how to get it.

We have been training and evolving Pokémon for many years, but whenever a new release arrives, the same doubts arise related to those that do not evolve by gaining experience and leveling up, but have special processes that are not always easy to recognize. Happiness, special items, exchanges... There are many ways, and in the case of Annihilape, it is obtained by fighting against other Pokémon. In this article of our complete guide to Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, we tell you how to get it to evolve in a matter of minutes.

How to evolve a Primeape to Annihilape

It is very easy to make it evolve as long as you know how to do it, because it has a trick. First of all, as it is obvious, you must have a Primeape in your team, and its level must be at least 40, since that is when it learns the Rage Fist move. Then, the process is as simple as making it battle against other Pokémon and using that move 20 times in a row.

Fury Fist has a base of 10 PP (power points), so you can only execute it 10 times per battle. So now you know, when you use them all you can go to a Pokémon Center to recover them or use an Ether to restore the PP of the attack in question. Battle again and make Primeape use it 10 more times. Finally, it must level up one more level, either by gaining experience points or by giving it a Rare Candy and it will immediately evolve into the powerful Annihilape.

Where to find Primeape?

You may have read this guide but you have a problem: you don't have Primeape in your team. Don't worry, as you can easily catch it in several places in Paldea: Area 3 (west), around Medali, are your best options, although it is also possible to find it in Area 1 (north). With a bit of luck, you will come across a high-level one and you won't have to train it to learn Rage Fist.
