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

It evolves from Sneasel when leveled up while holding a Razor Claw during the night.

(Specifics may differ in past games. Refer to Game data→Evolution data for more details.)

Biology

Weavile is a bipedal Pokémon with a pale, gray body that resembles both a cat and a weasel. It has a bright red crown and collar made of wide feathers and a single, thinner feather on each ear. The ear feathers are smaller on a female Weavile. Weavile has two tail feathers and three claws on each paw. There is an oval, yellow gem-like protrusion in the center of its forehead. Its eyes are red with three eyelashes, and four fangs protrude from its upper jaw. Weavile is distantly related to Sneasler from the Hisui region.

Weavile live in snow-covered areas and are notorious predators. Weavile is famed for its speed and agility. Weavile is also known for its intelligence and cunning nature, thanks to its brain having developed as it evolves from Sneasel. A scratch from Weavile's sharp claws can cause frostbite. Weavile travel in packs of four or five, with one of them acting as the pack leader. They hunt for prey such as Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Vulpix, and even larger species like Mamoswine, then divide up the prey amongst themselves. Weavile can communicate with each other by carving patterns into trees, ice, and boulders, with over 500 distinct signs recorded.

Evolution

Weavile evolves from Sneasel.

Sun They travel in groups of four or five, leaving signs for one another on trees and rocks. They bring down their prey with coordinated attacks.
Moon They dwell in cold places. This Pokémon's main food source in Alola is Vulpix and Sandshrew, which they carefully divide among their group.
Ultra Sun One Weavile will trip a Sandshrew and flip it over, and then another Weavile will deal the finishing blow with its sharp claws.
Ultra Moon Thanks to its increased intelligence, scrapping over food is a thing of the past. A scratch from its claws will give you a case of frostbite!

Sword They attack their quarry in packs. Prey as large as Mamoswine easily fall to the teamwork of a group of Weavile.
Shield With its claws, it leaves behind signs for its friends to find. The number of distinct signs is said to be over 500.
Brilliant Diamond They live in cold regions, forming groups of four or five that hunt prey with impressive coordination.
Shining Pearl It sends signals to others of its kind by carving odd patterns on trees and ice.
Legends: Arceus This species corners prey as a pack, under the guidance of a leader. Weavile displays increased cunning, leading me to speculate that its evolution caused further brain development.

Weavile is a Battle Pokémon in Pokkén Tournament. Its moves include Agility, Fury Swipes, Fake Out, Knock Off, and Night Slash. During Synergy Burst, it can use the Burst Attack Sonic Slash.

Trivia

  • Weavile can be seen as a parallel to Gliscor. Both were introduced in Generation IV, both of them are dual-types, have the same base stat total, have Special Attack as their lowest stat, have double weaknesses (Gliscor to Ice, Weavile to Fighting), evolve from Pokémon that were introduced in Generation II, and do so by leveling up at night while holding items that contain the word "razor" (Sneasel evolves with the Razor Claw, whereas Gligar evolves with the Razor Fang).
  • Weavile and its pre-evolved form, Sneasel, are the only black Ice-type Pokémon.
  • Weavile is the only Pokémon within its family which does not possess three Abilities.

Origin

Weavile may be based on the kamaitachi, a type of yōkai often represented as weasel demons with sickles on their front legs and sometimes understood as the cause of mysterious cuts on the skin, especially in cold weather. It also shares some traits with cats and weasels. Its appearance may be based on ancient Egyptian fashion, as it includes what resembles a headdress, collar, and earrings similar to what Egyptian deities wear. Its "eyeshadow" also resembles Egyptian makeup. The feathers on its head may also be inspired by Native American war bonnets or may represent the wind that is the key element of kamaitachi encounters.

Name origin

Weavile may be a combination of weasel, weave, evil, and vile.

Manyula may be a combination of 魔 ma (demon), マニューバ maneuver (referring to its cunning), and ニューラ Nyula (Sneasel).
