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

It evolves into Weavile when leveled up holding a Razor Claw during the night (from Generations IV to VII, Sword and Shield, and Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl) or when exposed to a Razor Claw during the night (Legends: Arceus).

In Hisui, Sneasel has a dual-type Fighting/Poison regional form. It evolves into Sneasler when exposed to a Razor Claw during the day.

Biology

Sneasel is a bipedal mustelid Pokémon that resembles both a cat and a weasel. 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. The other ear is short and pointed, and it has narrow red eyes. On its forehead and chest are yellow, oval markings. It has red eyes with black eyelash-like markings on the edges. It has long limbs with two large, retractable claws on its hands and feet.

Sneasel is a notoriously vicious Pokémon, which is perfectly capable of using its claws to do substantial damage. Its claws are also used for climbing trees in boreal or sub-alpine forests. It can also bring out its claws to startle foes that attacked it. Sneasel is known to steal Eggs from unattended Pidgey nests. It has also been known to form pairs to hunt. Sneasel can blend well into the night in order to ambush their prey. One will lure the parents away from the nest, while the other steals the Eggs. It then uses its claws to poke a hole in the Egg before slurping the contents out. As a result, Sneasel are despised and considered a scourge by Breeders to the point where they try to drive away or eradicate the former. Sneasel preys on Alolan Sandshrew, but Sandshrew's skin is so hard that it can cause Sneasel's claws to snap off. Prior to Generation IV, Beat Up was its signature move.

In Hisui, Sneasel has a similar appearance to its Johtonian counterpart due to the living environment on the cliffside. It has a white and purple body with its left ear colored light purple. The face, shoulders, and chest have dark purple spots and there is a yellow gem on both its head and chest. The two toes on each foot are closed, and it has rounder eyes than its Johtonian form. Like Johtonian Sneasel, the ear feather is shorter on the female than on the male.

Hisuian Sneasel's sturdy and curved claws allow it to climb and travel through the precipitous walls and cliffs where it lives. The venom from the tips of Hisuian Sneasel's claws is capable of invading the nervous system of any prey it scratches. It prefers to be alone, unlike the Johtonian Sneasel. It has been observed that Hisuian Sneasel lacks the spitefulness of its Johtonian counterpart, and it has been theorized that differences in its environment account for the differing personalities. As a result of these differences in environment, Hisuian Sneasel evolves into Sneasler instead of Weavile.

Trivia

 
Sneasel in a cat Pokémon merchandise by Kino Takahashi

Origin

Sneasel 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 resembles black cats. It may also draw inspiration from the viverrids, weasel-like mammals with half-retractable claws that are sometimes mistaken for cats; its "feathers" perhaps represent the dorsal crest seen on some species. 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, or sneesl (Scots for to begin to rain or snow) — both of which refer 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, ニャー nya (the sound a cat makes), and 野良 nora (stray, as in a stray cat, as strays are usually violent and tricky).
