Sneasel (ニューラ) is the 218th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Dark/Ice-Type, and is known as the Sharp Claw Pokémon.

Sneasel cane use one of two Abilities: Inner Focus, which protects it from flinching unless it tries to use Focus Punch; or Keen Eye, which prevents opposing Pokémon from lowering its Accuracy. A third Ability is available to Sneasel from the Dream World, the Pickpocket Ability. This Ability allows it to steal the Hold Item of a Pokémon that utilizes an attack that requires physical contact against it.

Sneasel couldn't evolve when it was introduced in Generation II, but starting in Generation IV a Sneasel can evolve into a Weavile if it Levels Up at Night while holding a Razor Claw.

Sneasel is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Sneasel 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Competitive Battling

While it is an unevolved Pokémon, Sneasel is still a viable option in the Never-Utilized and Rarely-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Its high Speed and Attack allows it to revenge KO many of the Psychic-Type and Ghost-Type Pokémon in the tiers, but Fighting-Type Pokémon will have an easy time in defeating Sneasel, along with any Pokémon that has a good Defense and can also strike back with a strong move.
