Weavile uses the Pressure Ability, which lowers the PP of the opposing Pokémon by 2 instead of 1 whenever it is in battle. Its Hidden Ability is Pickpocket. Using this Ability, when an opposing Pokémon's move requires physical contact, the opponent's item gets stolen. This doesn't work if Weavile is already holding an item.
Weavile is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Weavile 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Weavile takes on the appearance of a mix between a weasel and a bipedal feline. It also has a bright red collar on its neck, which has grown into forming a crown in the back.
After evolving, a Weavile has two ear-like feathers. The Male Weavile's ear-like feathers are larger than those of the Female Weavile.
Weavile cannot be found in the wild. The only way to obtain one is to evolve a Sneasel, which is consistent in all of its game appearances.
Weavile can be found at Crevice Cave B1-B10 and Mt. Avalanche B1-B19 in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Weavile appear in all three versions of Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Secret Archipelago 19F-29F; Secret Highland 19F-29F; and Secret Rockmountain 19F-29F.
Weavile will appear at Almia Castle in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia after beating the Boss of the area. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Weavile can be found inside the West Cave on the Second Floor of Mt. Layuda, along with the Second Floor of Oblivia Region's Sky Fortress and the Outside Left Platform in the Present, and in the Ice Temple mission "Time, Time, Time!" in the Past by completing the mission with an S Rank.
The only way to obtain a Weavile in Pokémon Rumble Blast is to evolve Sneasel.
Trading Card Game
Weavile is listed in the 8th Movie Halfdeck and Pokémon Card Game Promo set. Weavile is listed as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl, Secret Wonders, Platinum, Undaunted and Next Destinies sets.
Weavile is a Pokémon that appears from the Poké Ball Item in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Weavile uses its high speed, dashing back and forth along the platform that it appears on. Opponents that get caught in this attack become dizzy, leaving them vulnerable to getting hit with a Smash Attack at full power.
A trainer named Kidd would use a Weavile during the film Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, the only appearance for Weavile in the films as of writing.
Weavile's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.
Weavile is a part of the Overused (OU) tier of competitive battling. Weavile has a great STAB combination along with high Speed and Attack stats, which allows it to act as a revenge killer with a Life Orb. It has strong STABs in Knock Off and Icicle Crash along with priority in Ice Shard which gives it even more revenge killing capability and allows it to hit most of the tier with neutral damage. Icicle Crash is notable as it allows Weavile to take care of defensive Pokémon that are nuisances to many other physical attackers, such as tank Garchomp, Landorus-T, and Gliscor. Weavile does suffer from some glaring flaws, as it has many common weaknesses, is very frail, and can be worn down by Life Orb recoil and Stealth Rock damage. Despite this, it is a fearsome threat that should be accounted for at all costs.
