    Default A Question About Weavile

    I've been a big fan of Weavile since the Lucario movie but there's one thing I've always wondered. Is Weavile a cat? I can tell that it's some sort of feline but is it suppose to be a cat specifically?

    I think it and Sneasel are meant to be a cross between cats and weasels.

    The face and the litheness of the body say it to me, but the OP may have other ideas.

    According to Bulbapedia, Weavile was inspired by the Kamaitachi, a Japanese wind spirit that traveled in groups of three and had sickles for hands. It also looked like a weasel. That explains Weavile's speed, habit of moving in groups, and ability to learn Icy Wind.

    So that's likely the direct type of thing it is, but I definitely see some cat elements.

    It really not nesecarry for a pokemon to resemble something. Look at Rotom.

    Well the name appears to be a combination of "weasel" and "vile"... So I guess a weasel would be the best guess.
