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

How to teach Primeape Rage Fist in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
Primeape can learn Rage Fist once he reaches level 35. This can be done through natural level progression or by giving him rare candies to increase his level. Alternatively, you can also give him Exp. Candies of different sizes. This would quickly increase the Pokemon’s experience to level up faster.
To evolve into Annihilape, Primeape must use Rage Fist 20 times throughout different battles. Once this number has been reached, a cutscene will follow where Primeape will evolve into Annihilape. It is important to note that Rage Fist can only be used up to ten times before it needs to be restored. You can restore Rage Fist by visiting a Pokemon Center or by giving the Pokemon a PP Up.
