Mankey is a Fighting Pokémon that has appeared in the Pokémon games since the first generation. This creature is best known for having a very short temper, and that is before it evolves into the even naughtier and more powerful Primeape. With Annihilape finally adding a third Scarlet and Purple evolution to this line of Pokemon, these Pokemon will no doubt be high on your list of Pokemon to add to your party. Here you can find and catch Mankey in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

How to catch Mankey in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Mankey can be found very early in your game from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. After leaving the school to begin your treasure hunt, you’ll find them in abundance on the West Trail just outside of Cortondo between the West Province (Area 1) and the South Province (Area 2). Mankeys appear fairly regularly along this path around level 15.
Although the above is probably the first place you may encounter Mankeys, they can be found in abundance throughout the Western Province (Area One) and Southern Province (Area One) and Southern Province (Area Five). They like trees, so find areas with trees nearby and they should eventually pop up. They like a fight, so instead of running away, they run to you to start a fight.
When fighting Mankey, remember that it’s a Fighting-type Pokémon, so it will be strong against Normal and Rock-type Pokémon on your team. Counter it with Flying, Psychic, Fairy, and Ghost attacks to take it down quickly. As mentioned above, Mankey appears fairly regularly in the areas listed above. So if you accidentally faint him, just look around for another one (they even travel in groups occasionally) and try again.
