Movesets Grades

* Legacy Moveset

Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Counter is clearly superior to Low Kick and Karate Chop due to having a higher power and minimal extra cast time.

  • Close Combat is superior to Low Sweep due to the damage disparity.

  • Cross Chop, a legacy move, is a good consideration if you’re lucky.

  • Night Slash isn’t an effective move for Primeape on offense. Use your TM here.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Counter is Primeape’s best fast move on defense for its high base damage.

  • Night Slash counters Primeape’s common Psychic-type weakness and is optimal for defense.

  • Low Sweep is Primeape’s next best charge move on defense due to low energy cost. Cross Chop requires more energy, but is harder to react to.

  • Close Combat takes too long to charge for effective usage.

Rating Explanation:

Primeape is a Machamp substitute with passable Atk but no bulk to speak of. Though the Fighting type is in high demand, type effectiveness isn’t enough to compensate for Primeape’s disappointing stats.
