When it comes to Ice-type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, there are many to choose from. However, most are slow, bulky Pokémon, but Sneasel and its evolution Weavile bring much-needed speed to the type. This may leave you wondering how to evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
How to get Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
To evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you will need to find a Razor Claw. You cannot evolve Sneasel simply by leveling it up normally; instead, you must give Sneasel the Razor Claw held item. Once it is holding this item, level up Sneasel with a Rare Candy at night to evolve it. Sneasel will not evolve into Weavile during the day.
Where to get a Razor Claw in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
The Razor Claw is a unique held item that evolves Sneasel in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. It can be found and purchased at Delibird Presents stores, but you must first have defeated four gyms. Once you have collected four gym badges, this item will be available in the store.
Additionally, you can get a Razor Claw from the Porto Marinada Market after you have completed the Cascarrafa Gym challenge. This will open the auction hall where you can place bids on the Razor Claw. However, this item is not guaranteed to be available, so your best bet is to purchase one from the Delibird Presents store.
