Sneasel is a fan-favorite Pokemon that’s returning in Scarlet & Violet, so we’ve put together a handy guide to help you find it on the Paldea map and evolve it into Weavile.
Ever since it debuted all the way back in Gold & Silver, Sneasel and its evolution Weavile have become iconic in the Pokemon franchise, with fans always wondering if they’ll return in the next big game.
The good news is that Sneasel, Weavile, and even its Hisuian evolution Sneasler will all be available to add to your team in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet – but they’re not the easiest Pokemon to get hold of.
Below, you’ll find the best locations to encounter Sneasel in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, as well as details of how to evolve it into Weavile and how to get Sneasler.
Where to find Sneasel in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Sneasel can be found across a large portion of the northern side of the Paldea map, but your best bet is to search Glaseado Mountain, specifically along Dalizapa Passage.
How to evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
To evolve Sneasel into Weavile, you’ll need to give it a Razor Claw to hold and have it level up at night. You’ll know if it’s considered nighttime in the game because the sky will be dark.
It’s also possible to encounter Weavile in the wild in the Glaseado Mountain area at night, but it will be much harder to find than its pre-evolution Sneasel.
