In Pokémon Legends: Arceus, players can catch Sneasel, who now has new types along with a new Hisuian-specific evolution. Here’s how to catch Sneasel.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus has come with several new and old Pokémon that players can find and catch in Hisui, one of which is Sneasel. While Sneasel is originally a Generation II Pokémon, he is now a Poison- and Fighting-type Pokémon who has come with an entirely new Hisui-exclusive Sneasler evolution. Because of this, players are likely to be looking for Sneasel to evolve him into his brand new form.
Sneasel is categorized as a Sharp Claw Pokémon, with base stats of 55 HP, 95 ATK, 55 DEF, 35 ATK SPD, 75 DEF SPD, and 115 SPEED. If players want to test out the new Hisuian-Sneasler, they’re going to need to catch a Sneasel and evolve him first. Here’s where and how players can catch Sneasel.
Players will be given a Sneasel as a mount in Legends: Arceus after defeating Ingo at Clamberclaw Cliffs. Sneasel serves as one of the five available mounts in the game and allows players to climb cliffs and access higher-up points, such as the tops of the snowy mountains in the Alabaster Icelands. However, players will not be able to use or evolve this Sneasel. Thus, if they want to use Sneasel in battle, they’ll have to catch their own.
Where to Catch Sneasel in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
Hisuian Sneasel can be found in two different regions of the map. In the Coronet Highlands, Sneasel can be found at Celestica Trail and Primeval Grotto. In the Alabaster Icelands, Sneasel can be found at Avalugg’s Legacy or Glacier Terrace. One of the easier places players will be able to find Hisuian Sneasel will be the waterfall pond area along the western end of Celestica Trail.
Sneasel will attack the player on sight, so stealth is the best method of approach. If players are struggling to catch one, they should make sure they’re using a Stealth Spray and crouching in the grass to approach the Pokémon from behind without being detected. However, if players are forced into battle with Sneasel, the drops from defeating it may be beneficial later anyway.
If players are catching a Sneasel with the intent to evolve it, they should make sure that they have the evolution item Razor Claw. The item can be obtained as a drop from defeating or capturing a Sneasel or traded at the Trade Shop in Jubilife Village in exchange for Merit Points. Once players have this item, they simply have to use it on their Sneasel to evolve it.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus is available for Nintendo Switch.
