How To Teach Primeape Rage Fist in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

Primeape learns Rage Fist at level 35. It’s that simple. Yet, it leads to a brand new evolution mechanic. Once Primeape uses its signature move 20 times and then levels up, it evolves into Annihilape and gains secondary Ghost typing. Rage Fist is a Ghost move, so its power is boosted by STAB only when Annihilape uses it.

This new move has a base power of 50 but increases by 50 every time Primeape is hit by an attack – even by itself! Switching out Primeape doesn’t reset the number of attacks it takes in a battle, and Bullet Seed can count as up to five hits. If you play your cards right, you can boost Rage Fist to 250 power and KO whatever you want.
