Pokémon Legends: Arceus is the latest adventure in the Pokémon franchise, this time bringing with it a whole new open world, new catching mechanics and more. While the deep mysteries of Hisui, and which Pokémon you’re going to encounter, are left for you to solve, there are a few Pokémon that you might need a bit of help catching.

Pokémon Legends Arceus is full of regional variations of popular Pokémon from the history of the series, and you’ll need to catch them all in order to complete the final quest. One of the new evolutions added to older Pokémon is Sneasler, a new evolution of generation 2’s Sneasel.

How to get Sneasler in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

In order to evolve Hisuian Sneasel into Sneasler, you’ll need a Razor Claw. This item can be be acquired a few different ways. It can be purchased at the Trade Shop in Jubilife Village, but if you’re very lucky, you can find one from catching Sneasels in the wild. It'll also only be compatible during the day, so that's something to bear in mind.

If you want to evolve Sneasel into Weavile, you’ll need the same item, but use it on your standard Sneasel at night instead of during the day.

You’ll need to catch both Weavile, Sneasler, and all of the other Hisuian forms if you want to complete the final quest. We have guides for all the trickier Pokémon below, or, if you’d rather check out the whole Pokédex, you can find that, too.
