Raging Battles Event: Annihilape
Annihilape, the Rage Monkey Pokemon, has made his Pokemon Go debut with this event. Annihilape is a new evolution for Primeape, which itself is an evolution of Mankey. The Pokemon comes from the Paldean region. The Annihilape is a Fighting and Ghost type Pokemon.
How to get Annihilape in Pokemon Go
Trainers can get an Annihilape if they have a Primeape by evolving it into Annihilape. You can evolve Primeape into Annihilape after you defeat 30 Ghost-type or Psychic-type Pokemon in battle with Primeape as your buddy. You do not have to defeat these Pokemon with Primeape. During the event, Primeape will be more frequently available in the wild so don’t worry even if you don’t have a Primeape yet.
Alongside Annihilape, there are several featured Raid Bosses, event-themed Field Research focused on Mankey, and Throh and Sawk make a global appearance, regardless where you are at.
