Primeape gets even angrier when it evolves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet leaks

You wouldn't like it when it's angry.

With Pokémon Scarlet and Violet just around the corner, some Poké-fans have allegedly received a rom of Pokémon Scarlet and are uploading data leaks as quickly as possible. Fans are seeing brand new Pokémon and evolutions that have yet to see the light of day until now. One such new evolution coming in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is Primeape’s, and it’s ferocious.

With hair that appears inspired by Dragon Ball Z and a beard to shame Thor, Primeape’s new evolution is into a creature called Annihilape. It’s big, muscular, and surprisingly hairy, which could explain its frustrations. Within the image, no additional information is offered because of its rarity and the relatively new entry of this Pokémon game. While it’s clear that Annihilape evolves from Primeape, whether it’s based on level or materials is currently unclear.

Primeape’s bracelets and anklets are still clearly seen on Annihilape. This will likely be the final evolution of the pig monkey Pokémon, Mankey, as this would be the third evolutionary tier of the creature. Further, it’s likely that it at least maintains its primary fighting type, although it’s plausible that another type is added for its final evolutionary tier. Mankey evolves into Primeape at level 28, and the appearance of Annihilape (and name) imply that there is nowhere else for this fighter to ascend to.

When dealing with leaks, players should know that the authenticity of the data shown is next to impossible to verify. Unless a developer or publisher comes out and authenticates large swaths of data, the only thing consumers can do to ensure the leaks are factual is wait for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet to release. No matter how well-made the image appears, it’s always possible that it is simply an attempt to dupe starving fans.
