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 holding a Razor Claw during the night.

Biology

Weavile is a bipedal, weasel-like Pokémon with a pale, gray body. 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 a yellow, oval marking in the center of its forehead. Its eyes are red with three eyelashes, and four fangs protrude from its upper jaw.

Weavile live in snow covered areas and are notorious predators. Weavile is famed for its speed and agility. A scratch from Weavile's sharp claws can leave behind traces of frostbite. Weavile often hunt in packs for prey such as Alolan Sandshrew, Alolan Vulpix, and even larger species like Mamoswine, then divide up the prey amongst themselves. Weavile can communicate by carving patterns into trees, ice, and boulders, with over 500 distinct signs recorded.

Trivia

  • Weavile weighs as much as Dawn. It shares this similarity with Porygon-Z.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Weavile and its pre-evolved form.
  • 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 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 Razor Claw, whereas Gligar evolves with Razor Fang).

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.

Name origin

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

Manyula is a combination of 魔 ma (demon), 潜入 sennyū (sneaking in), and 鼬 (weasel, an alternate reading of itachi). Nyu itself may be a combination of ニャー nya (the sound a cat makes) and 鼬 .
