PVP Mode Explanatory Notes

PvP Moveset Explanation
Powder Snow + Night Slash and Blizzard

Powder Snow is recommended for its high energy generation, and also benefits from STAB. Metal Claw is a poor move from both a stats and typing perspective. 

Night Slash is mandatory due to its low energy cost, making it useful for baiting and pressuring shields. Blizzard costs a lot of energy, but its massive damage and wide coverage is no joke. Gyro Ball is a poor move generally speaking, and Steel typing isn't very valuable. 

PvP Rating Explanation
Great League: 2.5 / 5

If you're reading this, you might've noticed the max CP of Alolan Sandshrew. When it's your Best Buddy, Alolan Sandshrew reaches 1479 CP, though this is a very expensive resource investment. Just like its evolution, Alolan Sandshrew is more of a specialist Pokemon, favoring specific PvP formats rather than open Great League due to its major weaknesses. 

Ultra League: 0 / 5

50 candy to evolve shouldn't be a lot to ask, right? 

Master League: 0 /  5

So uh, I heard you like ice cream?
