Mankey (マンキー Mankī) is a Fighting-type Pokémon that debuted in the original generation. Its species classification is "Pig Monkey". Mankey resembles a white fluffball with arms, legs, and a tail sticking out. Its face features red eyes and a prominent, pig-like snout. Mankey is known to fly into rages when it is disturbed.
Mankey evolves into the much stronger Primeape at level 28. It is severely lacking in all of its stats, excepting Speed and Attack. It has the innate trait Vital Spirit (cannot be put to sleep).
In Red/Blue/Yellow, it is only found in Red and Yellow as a very common Pokémon in the earlier paths in the games. In Gold/Silver/Crystal, it is only available in Gold. In FireRed/LeafGreen, it is commonly found on several routes.
Mankey is not very popular, due to the fact that it is unevolved and has low stats. However, many people use Mankey early on in Red/Yellow/FireRed/LeafGreen, due to its very useful Fighting type moves such as Low Kick.
