Weavile (Japanese: マニューラ Manyuura) is a Dark/Ice-type Pokémon.


Weavile are bipedal cat or weasel-like Pokémon. The majority of their body is black, with red ear-feathers and two red tail-feathers on their backsides. Additionally, they have a crown-like appendage on their heads, and a red collar around their necks. On their forehead, they possess a yellow gem. Their eyes are red with slitted cat-like pupils, and lined with dark eyelashes.

"Shiny" Weaviles' bodies are mostly pink, with yellow feathers and accents. Their forehead gem appears light blue in the game sprites.

Special Abilities

Weaviles attack their foes with deadly accuracy, targeting the vital points using their three razor sharp, retractable claws which they sport on their hands and feet.

It's English name is derived from the words Weasel and Vile.


  • Weavile and Sneasel may have some inspiration from the Japanese myth of the Kamaitachi: weasels with bladed claws who appear in a whirlwind, traveling in packs of three.
  • They may also be based on cat demons such as the Bakeneko that are renowned for their deceptive nature and claws used to maim or kill humans.
  • In Japan, both Sneasel and Weavile are considered cats and are referred to as felines throughout the anime and other media. The Japanese name is likely a play on "魔" (demon), "野良猫" (stray), and "ニャー" (meow).
  • Weavile is tied with Darkrai for the highest base Speed stat out of all Dark-type Pokémon.
