Weavile (マニューラ, Manyula) is a fictional creature from the Pokémon series.
Weavile is a Dark/Ice-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV, and it was among the very first Generation IV Pokémon ever revealed, making its official debut in the movie Lucario and the Mystery of Mew. Weavile is categorized within the Pokédex at #461 as the "Sharp Claw Pokémon". It evolves from Sneasel when leveling up at night while holding a Razor Claw. It is very fast and focuses on physical attacks.
False Swipe is a physical Normal-type introduced in Generation II. It has 40 base power, 100% accuracy and the property of not being able to KO its target, leaving it with 1 HP left: it is thus useless in competitive play, but very valuable when trying to catch wild Pokémon. Weavile, like several other Pokémon, can learn it with TM54.
In Super Smash Bros Brawl
As a Poké Ball Pokémon
Weavile appears as a Poké Ball Pokémon in Brawl. When summoned, Weavile will use False Swipe and slash at other foes on the stage furiously. On the ground, the attack only does 1% damage with no knockback, but any opponent that gets hit will be stunned. Weavile moves back and forth for a long duration of time, trapping opponents for that period of time. When used on an airborne opponent, the attack has high knockback, making a Star KO very likely. In the Pokémon games, the move False Swipe would reduce the opponent's HP to up to 1 HP, never below, making it strange that this move can KO. Like Fox Illusion, if Weavile darts off an edge, it will KO itself.
