Where to find Mankey in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet!

Mankey is a Fighting-type Pokémon that has been in Pokémon games since the first generation. This creature is famous for its very short temper, and that’s before it evolved into the even more mischievous and powerful Primeape. With Annihilape finally adding a third evolution to this line of Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet, these Pokémon will undoubtedly be near the top of your list of Pokémon to add to your party. Here you can find and catch Mankey in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to catch Monkey in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Monkey can be found very early in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. After you leave the school to start the treasure hunt, you can find it in abundance on the western road outside Cortondo between the western province (region one) and the southern province (region two). Monkeys appear regularly along this path around level 15.

While the above is probably the first place you can run into Mankeys, they can also appear in abundance throughout the Western Province (Region I), Southern Province (Region I), and Southern Province (Region V). They love trees, so look for areas with trees around them and they should eventually come up. They love to fight, so they won’t run away, instead they run to you to start a fight.

When fighting Mankey, keep in mind that it’s a Fighting-type Pokémon, so it’ll be strong against Normal and Rock Pokémon on your team. Counter her with Flying, Psychic, Fairy, and Ghost attacks to take her down quickly. As mentioned earlier, Monkey makes regular appearances in the above areas, so if you accidentally knock him out, just find someone else (he sometimes even travels in packs) and try again.
