 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Primeape is a viable option in both the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it has trouble against Ghost-Type Pokémon, Primeape still has good Speed and a great Attack and just enough physical attacks to make opponents wary of the Pig Monkey Pokémon.
Primeape is frail due to poor bulk, and status conditions ruin its longevity in general and Burns in particular.
