How to evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Evolving Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet isn’t as simple as reaching a level cap, which is how most other Pokémon evolve.

Instead, Sneasel is actually classified as a special evolution in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, and you’ll not only need to give it a certain item to evolve it, but also do so during a specific time of day.

Here’s how to turn Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, as well as information on how to catch both Pokémon in the wild.

Where to find Sneasel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You can see Sneasel’s habitat in the image below:

As you can see, you will find Sneasel on Frosting Mountain. If you go during the night, you’ll have an easier time getting Sneasel to appear, but you can also catch him during the day.

How to evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Sneasel will evolve into Weavile only if it has the Razor Claw item. Furthermore, she will only evolve at night.

First, go to a Delibird Presents store in Levincia, Mesagoza or Cascarrafa. You can purchase the Razor Claw item for 15,000. If you can’t see it in the store, make sure you have at least four gym badges and it will unlock.

Now, give the Razor Claw to your Sneasel. You will have to wait until night before evolving. The day/night cycle lasts about 30 minutes and unfortunately there is no way to speed it up.

Once it’s night, simply level up Sneasel once and it will evolve. A good way to do this is to take Sneasel to a high level area and send a Pokémon to Auto Battle. Sneasel will gain EXP for being in the party and will level up extremely quickly.

If this all sounds a little complicated, you can also catch Weavile in the wild. It can be found in a small area of ​​the map in the northeastern part of Glaceado Mountain. Take a look at their habitat below:

To increase your chances of finding a Weavile in the wild, hunt at night. You may also consider eating a sandwich that has Encounter: Ice or Encounter: Dark bonuses.
