Mankey is a primate Pokémon, similar to a New World monkey. It is a bipedal Pokémon with a round body covered in whitish, shaggy fur. Its nose is similar to a pig’s snout, and it has red eyes and triangular ears with brown insides. Mankey's hands, two-toed feet, and the tip of its curved, prehensile tail are brown. It is the smallest Fighting-type Pokémon. Mankey lives in treetop colonies, and if one becomes enraged, the whole colony rampages for no reason.
