Sneasel is tied with Persian as the second fastest Pokemon in the entire metagame and, alongside its decent base 95 Attack and unique dual typing, would perform wonderfully as a Swords Dance sweeper or Choice Band wallbreaker. Unfortunately, both of it's STABs are special and it only has base 35 Special Attack, meaning Sneasel must use non-STAB moves if it wants to make use of its much higher Attack stat. Sneasel is also exceedingly frail and has five glaring type weaknesses. Even so, Sneasel has perfect neutral coverage in Shadow Ball + Brick Break, and in a metagame dominanted by Psychic-types such as Hypno, Solrock, Lunatone, and Grumpig, as well as Fighting weak Pokemon such as Kangaskhan, Cradily, and Walrein, perhaps not all is bad for everyone's favorite icy weasel.
