You can find groups of Sneasel on Glaseado mountain, but you’ll want your Pokemon to be in the high 30s to compete with the high level wild Pokemon there. Once you catch one, Sneasel is helpful against the nearby Ghost-type Montenevera Gym even if you don’t have a Dark attack for it right away. Sneasel’s evolution via Razor Claw continues into the Paldea region.

Evolving Sneasel into Weavile doesn’t take long, you just have to buy a Razor Claw for it to hold and level it up at night. Weavile can deal a lot of damage with Beat Up, although Night Slash is a bit more consistent since it doesn’t rely on having six Pokemon in your party.
