Pokemon Sword and Shield are out now on Nintendo Switch, giving wannabe Trainers a whole new region to explore and Pokedex to complete. If you’re struggling to figure out how to get Weavile, then you’re in the right place. Here’s how to evolve Sneasel into Weavile in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Evolving Sneasel in Pokemon Sword & Shield
Unlike most other Pokemon that can evolve that you’ll find in the Galar region, Sneasel has a few particular requirements for evolving. First, you’ll need to make sure that you’ve got Razor Claw.
Getting Razor Claw to Evolve Sneasel
This can be found by heading to Dusty Bowl and making your way to the small island with one tree on it in the corner with the help of the Water Rotom Bike. Alternatively, you can buy a Razor Claw with Battle Points once you’ve completed the game and gained access to the Battle Tower. It’ll cost you 10 Battle Points to get one Razor Claw, but that’s all you need to evolve Sneasel in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Level Sneasel Up at Night to Evolve Into Weavile
Once you’ve got Razor Claw, all you need to do is make your Sneasel hold the item and then head out in the nighttime and start leveling it up. Level up Sneasel once at night with Razor Claw attached and it’ll evolve into a Weavile.
