Mankey

Mankey is a Fighting-type Pokémon that resembles a cross between a monkey and a pig, earning it the classification as the Pig Monkey Pokémon. This creature was originally discovered in Kanto, but is a common site in various regions. They typically dwell in treetop colonies or in wide-open savannas.

Pokédex Data

Mankey is recognisable by its rounded body covered in cream-white fur. It has a pair of pointed ears, three digits on each extremity, a pig-like nose and perpetually frowning red eyes.

Mankeys can be calm upon a first encounter, but they are easily angered and quite vengeful. If they feel threatened, they will lash out in a furious rage, unleashing a flurry of blows upon a perceived enemy. If a Mankey is separated from its colony, its loneliness will drive it mad. If one Mankey becomes enraged, often its entire colony will fly off the deep end for no reason.

Abilities

  • Fury Swipes - Mankey attacks with a series of scratches that cause minor damage with each strike.
  • Screech - An enraged Mankey emits a horrible scream that unnerves its opponent, diminishing their defence.
  • Karate Chop - A swift, harsh blow that inflicts moderate damage.
  • Thrash - Mankey goes berserk and unleashes its full strength in a series of violent strikes. In this state, Mankey cannot be calmed or recalled by a Trainer and will only stop once it wears itself out.

Evolution

Mankey evolves into Primeape at Level 28.
