Primeape is among the first 150 Pokémon within the beloved franchise, which makes its appearance in the newest Pokémon Scarlet & Violet a great sight to behold. Part of what makes this Pokémon's addition so great is its new, Paldeon third evolution, Annihilape, and the different natures it can possess. One of the things required of Primeape to evolve into Annihilape is to have a certain move acquired. This move is called Rage Fist, and it can be acquired through natural level progression the same way you would learn most other moves. So, at what point in your Pokémon journey will Primeape learn Rage Fist?

How to teach Primeape Rage Fist in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet?

Primeape can learn Rage Fist once it reaches level 35. You can do this via natural level progression or by giving it Rare Candies to boost its level. Alternatively, you can also give it Exp. Candies of different sizes. This would rapidly increase the Pokémon's exp to also level up faster.

To evolve in Annihilape, Primeape must use Rage Fist 20 times throughout different battles. Once this number has been reached, a cutscene will follow in which Primeape will evolve into Annihilape. It is important to note that you can only use up Rage Fist ten times before needing to be restored. You can restore Rage Fist by either visiting a Pokémon Center or giving the Pokémon a PP Up.
