Sandshrew (Alola Form) is an Ice & Steel Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Fighting, Fire and Ground moves. Sandshrew's strongest moveset is Metal Claw & Blizzard and it has a Max CP of 1,293. Sandshrew (Alola Form) evolves into Sandslash (Alola Form).
"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."
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.
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.
50 candy to evolve shouldn't be a lot to ask, right?
So uh, I heard you like ice cream?
