  • Adamant (+Attack, -Special Attack)
  • Jolly (+Speed, -Special Attack)

Sneasel and its evolution, Weavile has a mind-boggling speed stat, ensuring it outwits nearly every Pokémon in the game without increasing this stat. Combine that with an attack that's just a hair weaker than that top speed, and you've got a Pokemon that's great at knocking out late-game teams.

Choosing an unyielding nature means that Sneasel and Weavile won't outrun every Pokémon they encounter, but the list of opponents who can handle this task is very slim. The small sacrifice in speed boosts Sneasel and Weavile's attacking strength to staggering levels that are sure to shred teams with ease.

Those who opt for a Sneasel of Weavile whose speed is unmatched will want a Jolly Nature. Jolly Sneasel and Weavile are sure to hit first, and because their base attack stat is already so powerful, it's likely to be a killing blow, but not guaranteed as with an unyielding nature.


In the end, we sided with an unyielding nature for these powerful Pokemon, as their base speed stat is a bit higher than their base attacks. Giving these Pokémon a slight power boost makes them even more of a threat to opponents.
