Sneasel (Japanese: ニューラ Nyula) is a dual-type Dark/Ice Pokémon.

It evolves into Weavile when leveled up holding a Razor Claw during the night.

Biology

Physiology

Sneasel is a bipedal Pokémon which vaguely resembles a mix of cat and weasel. Its body is predominantly bluish-black, but it possesses bright red feather-like growths on its left ear and lower back. Its most striking features are the two retractable claws on its front and back paws. It also has distinctive yellow markings on its face and chest. It has unusual facial markings which resemble eyelashes, which are found on both males and females. They have an agile body, and are well skilled in quick movements and intricate techniques.

Gender differences

A female has a shorter red feather on its head than a male.

Special abilities

Sneasel normally attack by using claw-based moves, such as Slash or Metal Claw. Sneasel are also capable of learning punching moves like Ice Punch or Focus Punch. Since Sneasel is a Dark-type Pokémon, it can learn certain attacks that come with very disruptive effects: stealing an opponent's hold item (Thief), or preventing foes from using the same attack twice in a row (Torment). Sneasel is a very agile Pokémon, making it a tough target to hit.

Behavior

Sneasel are notoriously vicious Pokémon, which are perfectly capable of using their impressive claws to do substantial amounts of damage. Sneasel enjoy attacking and injuring the weak. Sneasel are very agile and will move with ninja-like movements in battle, as they are cunning and have developed many strategies to capture their prey. In addition to being formidable weapons, their claws are also useful tools and enable them to climb trees.

Habitat

Forest

Forest Pokémon

Sneasel generally live in forests, but are also found in caves and mountainous areas. Many also love vast snow fields.

Diet

Sneasel's preferred diet consists of Pidgey Eggs, but like most Pokémon, Sneasel sometimes eat Berries.
