PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Mud Shot + Rock Slide and Sand Tomb 

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. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 1 / 5

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. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

Evolve your Sandshrew maybe? 

Master League: 0 / 5

Don't use your Sandshrew maybe?
