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

Sneasel is a bipedal Pokémon that resembles both cats and weasels. It is primarily bluish black with three bright red feathers for its tail and a single one on its left ear. The ear feather is shorter on the female than on the male. On its forehead and chest are yellow, oval markings. It has red eyes with black eyelash-like markings on the edges. Its feet and hands have two large, retractable claws each.

Sneasel is a notoriously vicious Pokémon, which is perfectly capable of using its claws to do substantial damage. The claws are also used for climbing trees in its forest home. Sneasel steals eggs from unattended Pidgey nests. Sneasel has been known to form pairs to hunt. One will lure the parents away from the nest, while the other steals the eggs. Its former signature move, Beat Up, allows it to call on its teammates to attack its opponent.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry

This concludes the entries from the original series.

In the manga

Sneasel in Pokémon Adventures
Sneasel in The Golden Boys

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Silver's Weavile

Sneasel's most predominant role is as one of Silver's Pokémon which it first appeared in Who Gives a Hoothoot?, probably his first Pokémon as it was the Pokémon he used during his training under the Masked Man, and the only one seen with him in flashbacks of his childhood prior to being kidnapped. It is a dexterous and crafty fighter that fully utilizes its speed and attacks of both the Dark type and the Ice type. After many years, it evolved into a Weavile with his Murkrow in Lance's hidden Whirl Islands chamber.

Additionally, wild Sneasel are shown in both the Icefall Cave and near Snowpoint City, some of them being cared by Candice.

In the Pokémon Gold & Silver: The Golden Boys manga

Sneasel is Black's main Pokémon in Golden Boys.

In the Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All manga

Shū has a Sneasel in the Pokémon Gotta Catch 'Em All manga.

Trivia

Origin

Sneasel appears to be based on the kamaitachi, weasel demons with sickles on their front legs. It also shares similar traits with cats and weasels, from unusually cruel behaviors to even superstition, from cat demons or black cats of Western witchcraft, to Japanese superstition of weasels, being known in their respective cultures for being sneaky and associated with "evil" and misfortune. Its eye markings are similar to that of ones in Egyptian style, possibly Horus's.

Name origin

Sneasel is a combination of sneaky and weasel. It may also derive from sneeze, an action associated with having a cold or being cold, referring to its Ice-type.

Nyula may be a combination of 潜入 sennyū (sneaking in) and 鼬 (weasel, an alternate reading of itachi). Alternatively, it may be a combination of new and 野良 nora (stray, as in a stray cat, as strays are usually violent and tricky). Nyu itself may be a combination of ニャー nya (the sound a cat makes) and 鼬 .
