Number 057: Primeape, the Pig Monkey Pokémon. Height: 3'3", Weight: 71.0lbs.

Red and Blue Yellow Gold Silver Crystal
Always furious
and tenacious to
boot. It will not
abandon chasing
its quarry until
it is caught.
It stops being
angry only when
nobody else is
around. To view
this moment is
very difficult.
If approached
while asleep, it
may awaken and
angrily give chase
in a groggy state
of semi-sleep.
It becomes wildly
furious if it even
senses someone
looking at it. It
chases anyone that
meets its glare.
It will beat up
anyone who makes
it mad, even if it
has to chase them
until the end of
the world.
