Snattle (Japanese: ワズル Wazuru) is a character who appears Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness.

Snattle is a Cipher Admin who works for Cipher. His ultimate goal is to be inserted as the Governor of Orre, presumably to grant Cipher political control over the region through him. He appears to be a very self-absorbed and egotistical man who doesn't take challengers to his authority lightly.

When XD001 dropped the S.S. Libra in the desert north of Phenac City, Snattle and a team of Cipher Peons entered the city and locked all the citizens in the basement of the Pre Gym. The Peons then dressed up as the citizens to maintain appearances and deter outside visitors while they went to the S.S. Libra to retrieve the Pokémon from the shipwreck for Shadow Pokémon transformation.

Initially arriving to find Marcia, news reporter for ONBS, Michael exposed the fake townsfolk and forced them to leave. He then found Snattle holed up in the now-abandoned Phenac Stadium, where he held Marcia hostage and tried to force her into giving him the videotapes she made on Cipher's activities. After being defeated, Snattle fled town. Michael and Snattle later had a rematch on Citadark Isle, but Snattle lost again. He continues to appear in Orre Colosseum as the final opponent of the second round. After being defeated, Snattle grows to respect Michael and grants him the title Orre's Governor Secretary Candidate, stating he will appoint him as his secretary when he becomes governor of Orre.

Snattle's Shadow Pokémon consists of Pokémon shaped like celestial bodies: Lunatone, Solrock, and Starmie. He also favors use of self-destructing attacks like Explosion. Uniquely, he is the only opponent Michael will face that uses Shadow Sky in combination with Weather Ball to turn the latter into a makeshift ???-type move.
