Sun They travel in groups of four or five, leaving signs for one another on trees and rocks. They bring down their prey with coordinated attacks.
Moon They dwell in cold places. This Pokémon’s main food source in Alola is Vulpix and Sandshrew, which they carefully divide among their group.
Ultra Sun One Weavile will trip a Sandshrew and flip it over, and then another Weavile will deal the finishing blow with its sharp claws.
Ultra Moon Thanks to its increased intelligence, scrapping over food is a thing of the past. A scratch from its claws will give you a case of frostbite!
Sword They attack their quarry in packs. Prey as large as Mamoswine easily fall to the teamwork of a group of Weavile.
Shield With its claws, it leaves behind signs for its friends to find. The number of distinct signs is said to be over 500.
