Sneasel has the rare ability to know Beat Up, an attack that summons its team-mates to pummel a foe. Since Sneasel bears traits of a Dark-type Pokémon, it can learn certain attacks that come with very disruptive effects; such as stealing an opponent's hold item (Thief), or preventing foes from using the same attack twice in a row (Torment).

Trivia

Origin

It 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

Sneasel's name is a combination of sneaky and weasel. The name is pronounced as "sneezele", which possibly refers to "sniffle", "the sniffles", "sneeze", or "sneezing", resulting from a bad cold, hence this Pokémon is a Dark/Ice type. Some colds/sicknesses can be brought on by unprotected exposure to very cold weather.

Sneasel's Japanese name may come from sennyu, to sneak, and an yu, meaning weasel.
