Sandshrew is a Ground Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Water, Grass and Ice moves. Sandshrew's strongest moveset is Mud Shot & Dig and it has a Max CP of 1,261. Sandshrew evolves into Sandslash.
"Sandshrew's body is configured to absorb water without waste, enabling it to survive in an arid desert. This Pokémon curls up to protect itself from its enemies."
Mud Shot is recommended for its high energy generation, letting Sandshrew spam its Charge Moves more often. Scratch is a poor move.
Rock Slide provides useful Rock-type coverage with a moderate energy cost. Sand Tomb is chosen for its lesser energy cost and debuff utility, though its damage output is very lackluster. Dig is a terrible move for its insane energy cost.
Sandshrew approaches the CP cap of Great League, reaching 1443 CP when it's your Best Buddy. Unfortunately it still lacks stats to be viable against the meta, and the lack of decent Ground-type damage is rather unfortunate.
Evolve your Sandshrew maybe?
Don't use your Sandshrew maybe?
