Weavile (Japanese: マニューラ Manyula) is a dual-type Dark/Ice Pokémon.

It evolves from Sneasel by level-up, at night, with a Razor Claw.

Biology

Physiology

Weavile's appearance looks like that of a bluish-black bipedal feline, clad in a bright red crown, and collar. Weavile has two tails, instead of three like its pre-evolved form.

Weavile has three claws on each paw, unlike it pre-evolved form, Sneasel, which only had two.

Gender differences

A female Weavile has smaller ear feathers than a male.

Special abilities

Weavile mostly knows the same moves that its pre-evolution can know, but Weavile is more adept with using attacks than Sneasel. In addition to the moves that its pre-evolution can learn, Weavile can learn Night Slash and Dark Pulse.

Behavior

Weavile are very snide Pokémon. Though Weavile flourish in packs, they show little to no remorse, respect, and/or mercy to their fellow Weavile. Weavile have very perplexing relationships with each other which researchers still study. Though Weavile are naturally hostile and cold, they are compatible with any Trainer nonetheless. With this in mind, however, many experienced Trainers believe a Weavile cannot fight at its peak without a matching Trainer that complements Weavile's natural behavior.

Habitat

Packs of Weavile love to live in cold habitats. Weavile are rare because, though icy areas are common, Weavile seem to prosper in tree-filled areas. Researchers believe this to be because Weavile's living habitat revolves around their ability to hunt. They love snowy areas because of their ability to deceive their prey in the snow. Being that they communicate through markings on trees and ice, it is crucial that they hunt and live in areas that can benefit their abilities.

In Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, a trainer named Kidd Summers owns two Weavile.

Weavile also makes an appearance in Duels of the Jungle. A Weavile is banished from its group because the Sharp Claw Pokémon was attracted to a Sneasel that the group's leader was attracted to.

Paul owns a Weavile which first appeared in Top-Down Training.

Trivia

  • Weavile's US name was revealed on May 28, 2006, the same day that Mime Jr.'s name was revealed.
  • Weavile's Japanese name, Manyula, is strangely close to Panula. Incidently, Sneasel can be found in the cave.
  • Weavile weighs as much as Dawn.
  • Weavile is the first Generation IV Template:Type2 Pokémon to appear in the anime.
  • Weavile has the highest base Speed stat of any Ice-type Pokémon and is tied for the fastest Dark-Type Pokémon with Darkrai.
  • Although Weavile and Sneasel are speedy Dark-type Pokémon, they cannot learn Sucker Punch.


Origin

Weavile may be based on weasels, but it also seems to draw inspiration from 鎌鼬 kamaitachi, weasel demons with sickles on their front legs.

Name origin

Weavile's name seems to be a combination of weasel and vile. Its Japanese name is a combination of 魔 ma, demon, 潜入 sennyū, sneaking in, and 鼬 , an alternate reading of itachi, or weasel.
