There are two forms of Sneasel that you can get in this game.

  • Hisuian Sneasel: Hisuian Sneasel is a lot easier to catch in this game when compared to the other form. Go to the following places when looking for a Hisuian Sneasel.
    • Coronet Highlands
      • Primeval Grotto
      • Celestica Trail
    • Alabaster Icelands
      • Avalugg’s Legacy
      • Glacier Terrace
  • Sneasel (Johto Sneasel): Johto Sneasel is a lot harder to get your hands on. The main reason for it is you can only catch it in Space-Time Distortions. While there is no fixed region for Space-Time Distortions to look for, try catching one in Obsidian Fieldlands. Wait somewhere in the region until the game notifies you a Space-Time Distortion is forming. The moment you get this message look for it and go there. Once a Sneasel does spawn then catch it as soon as possible. The reason for being quick is, that the other Pokemon should not get a chance to target you. You can use the following Poke ball to increase your chances of getting it.
    • Great ball
    • Ultra ball
    • Leaden Ball
    • Gigaton Ball


Once you catch them you can start preparing for the next step, which is evolving them.
