To get Hisuian Sneasel in Pokemon GO, you can hatch 7 KM Eggs, complete the Field Research Encounters, and finish the Timed Research quest during the Along the Route event. The important thing to note is that multiple other Pocket Monsters are also featured in the event. So, you'll have to overcome this challenge to obtain the Sharp Claw Pokemon.


Remember, you'll have to acquire as many eggs as possible to get a chance to encounter it. Here is the list of Pocket Monsters featured in 7 KM Eggs.

After obtaining a Hisuian Sneasel, you can evolve it into a Sneasler during the daytime by feeding the former 100 Candy. But before that, you’ll have to make it your Buddy and walk for 7 KM to be eligible for the evolution in Pokemon GO.

One of the challenging tasks for collectors is getting enough consumable items to trigger the evolution. If you’re having difficulty collecting it, you can set a Hisuian Sneasel as your Buddy and let it find its Pokemon Candy.

Please note the regular and Hisuian variants share the same family-related resources. So, if you have many of those, it can help you get Sneasler.
