Sneasel is a dual-type Pokémon that encompasses the dark and ice types. They were introduced in the second generation along with their feline evolution, Weavile. The two were so popular that they returned in Pokémon: Legends Arceus with a new form and a new evolution, Sneasler. The famous pair appears again in the latest Pokémon Scarlet and Violet along with other Paldean Pokémon.
Once you find your very own Sneasel while exploring the Glazed Mountain region, you will most likely want to immediately turn it into a Weavile. So how can you evolve Sneasel into Weavil in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Similar to Pokemon: Legends Arceus, Sneasel can evolve into Weavile after holding on to a razor claw as you level up at night. The easiest way to find a Razor Claw is by picking one up at a delibird presents shop for 15,000 Pokédollars or LP. You can find these stores in most major cities, such as mesagoza. After getting one, you just need to give it to Sneasel to hold. Then, the moment you level up your Sneasel, a cutscene will appear where it will evolve into a Weavile. At that point, the Razor Claw will have run out. But you’ll have a new Pokémon to add to your party and your Pokédex!
