Sneasel is a Tier 1 raid boss in Pokémon Go and adds to the Fashion Week 2021 as a ‘cool’ mon with round sunglasses and a hat to up the swag. Plus, it can be shiny!
Sneasel is a highly coveted Pokémon not just due to its extremely attractive shiny and it can be caught with the following CP values:
- 1107- 1172 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
- 1384- 1465 CP at Level 25 with Snow or Fog weather boost
It is a dual Dark and Ice type and Tier 1. As such, it is an easy solo, serving as a battering ram for your Fighting Bug Fairy Fire Rock and Steel types. The weakness to Fighting is 2x.
It is worth noting that costumed Sneasel cannot be evolved into a Weavile
