Primeape Evolution: How to evolve Primeape into Annihilape
First, you’re going to need to catch a Primeape. You can find them early enough in the game, around level 20 to the west of the main city. Then you’re going to have to train the puncy lad up a bit.
Once Primeape reaches level 35 it will learn the move Rage Fist. This is key to evolving Primeape into Annihilape. After you learn the move, you’re going to have to have Primeape use the move 20 times. You can do this by fighting against a Pokemon that it doesn’t affect, or simply finding some low-level Pokemon and smashing them to bits.
After you’ve done it 20 times, level up once and your Primape will evolve into Annihilape. Annihilape can also be found in 5-star raids and 6-star raids. If you’ve yet to unlock these raids, you can find out how to do so here.
