Sneasel (Japanese: ニューラ Nyuura) is a Dark/Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

Biology

Physiology

Sneasel looks like a bipedal black cat or a weasel with sharp claws. It has a tail made of red feathers, with its left ear in a similar fashion. It also has a yellow-orange oval shaped gem on its chest and forehead. It has slanted red eyes that are defined by markings that look like long eyelashes.

Gender differences

The male's head feather is larger than the female's.

Behavior

Most Sneasel are cunning, and they usually form small groups to hunt down their prey. Some of them may live with Weavile in a group. They are known to steal eggs from unattended nests or even sneak into daycare centres to get some.

Natural abilities

Its abilities are Keen Eye or Inner Focus. Keen Eye prevents it from losing Accuracy. Inner Focus prevents it from flinching. It is thought to be very good at ninja skills as it is known to move at high speeds to attack opponents.

Evolution

This Pokémon evolves into Weavile while holding a Razor Claw and is leveled up at night.

Appearances

Anime

Sneasel first appeared in the fourth Pokémon movie, Celebi: Voice of the Forest, as one of the three Shadow Pokémon used by the main villain (the other two Pokémon being Scizor and Tyranitar).

Another one, in the episode "Pop Goes the Sneasel!" caused trouble for the Silver Conference of Johto when it blocked people access to the Sacred Fire of Ho-Oh, which was needed for the festivities. It was captured by a trainer from Hoenn named Harrison and subsequently used in the Conference.

Sneasel was one of the two featured Pokémon in the episode "Hail To the Chef!"

A female Sneasel also appeared in the Battle Frontier episode "Duels of the Jungle!" with its evolved form, Weavile.

Candice has her own Sneasel which she uses against Ash in "Sliding Into Seventh!"

Silver also owns a Sneasel in the manga and games.

Trivia

  • Sneasel has the highest Speed of all Pokémon that can evolve.
  • In Japan, Sneasel and its evolution are considered felines. ニューラ is a play on "stray (cat)" and "meow".
  • Sneasel is the only dual type cat Pokémon that is part of a two-stage evolution family.
    • It is also the only cat Pokémon whose evolution wasn't released in the same generation.

Etmyology
