Pokédex entries

Red
Blue
Extremely quick to anger. It could be docile one moment then thrashing away the next instant.
Yellow An agile POKéMON that lives in trees. It angers easily and will not hesitate to attack anything.
Gold It is extremely ill-tempered. Groups of them will attack any handy target for no reason.
Silver It's unsafe to approach if it gets violently enraged for no reason and can't distinguish friends from foes.
Crystal It lives in groups in the treetops. If it loses sight of its group, it becomes infuriated by its loneliness.
Ruby
Sapphire
When MANKEY starts shaking and its nasal breathing turns rough, it’s a sure sign that it is becoming angry. However, because it goes into a towering rage almost instantly, it is impossible for anyone to flee its wrath.
FireRed Light and agile on its feet, and ferocious in temperament. When angered, it flies into an uncontrollable frenzy.
LeafGreen Extremely quick to anger. It could be docile one moment, then thrashing away the next instant.
Emerald When it starts shaking and its nasal breathing turns rough, it’s a sure sign of anger. However, since this happens instantly, there is no time to flee.
Diamond
Pearl
Platinum
It lives in treetop colonies. If one becomes enraged, the whole colony rampages for no reason.
HeartGold It is extremely ill-tempered. Groups of them will attack any handy target for no reason.
SoulSilver It’s unsafe to approach if it gets violently enraged for no reason and can’t distinguish friends from foes.

Omega Ruby
Alpha Sapphire
When Mankey starts shaking and its nasal breathing turns rough, it’s a sure sign that it is becoming angry. However, because it goes into a towering rage almost instantly, it is impossible for anyone to flee its wrath.
Sun It can spontaneously become enraged. Everyone near it clears out as it rampages, and the resulting loneliness makes it angrier still.
Moon Its raging tires it out and causes it to fall asleep, but the anger resonating in its dreams causes it to wake up—which infuriates it all over again.
Ultra Sun The smallest of things could cause it to lose its temper. Because it doesn’t hold in its stress, this Pokémon can live a long time.
Ultra Moon If one gets angry, all the others around it will get angry, so silence is a rare visitor in a troop of Mankey.
