Interesting Facts about the Mankey

This fighting-type Pokemon is short and bares the resemblance of both a pig and a monkey. Its fur is a cream color, with brown accents around its feet and hands, as well as inside the Pokemon’s pointed ears. They have round, pink noses like pigs’ noses, and eyes that look very intense. They are very easy to anger and prone toward fighting. Once angry, their anger will peak very quickly so that its opponent(s) can’t get away before that point of no return. They don’t even know what they’re upset about to get agitated and go on rampages. If one Mankey in all an entire treetop colony begins to frenzy with rage, the others will just join right on in. Another thing that often angers the Mankey is chestnuts. They love to eat them, but their two-fingered hands make them almost impossible to get open. So when they can’t, they get very upset, very quickly. Fortunately for the Mankey, they also like bananas, which are much easier to get open.

Did you know?

  • Pink Mankey have been found on an island called Pinkan Island.
  • Though they are small, their punches hurt a lot.
  • Despite the Mankey’s anger problems when upset, it is often actually rather calm.
  • They are very agile, with nimble feet that can grasp onto things.
  • Mankeys live in large colonies that are high up in the trees. If one Mankey loses sight of its home among the rest, it will become enraged and start thrashing around, upset.
  • If a Mankey gets too upset, they will not be able to tell who’s an enemy and who’s a friend, making it a very dangerous Pokemon to approach.

Arts and Crafts Activity Notes: Find a jungle tree background and hang it from a magnetic board, like a dry-erase board or a chalkboard with magnets. After drawing the Mankey and making enough copies for each participant, distribute them and have each one color in their own Mankey, adding whatever decoration they’d like to the design. Then, instruct them to carefully cut their Pokemon out with safety scissors and hand out magnets to each participant. Have them hang their Mankey on the decorated board and you’ll have your own forest of monkey Pokemon! Or, if you’re looking for a bit of a fun structure creator, you can write a chore schedule, daily schedule, etc on the magnetic board, and let each individual Mankey represent who goes where in this visual Mankey-themed family/classroom planner!
