Sandslash is a Ground Pokémon which evolves from Sandshrew. It is vulnerable to Water, Grass and Ice moves. Sandslash's strongest moveset is Mud Shot & Earthquake and it has a Max CP of 2,374.
"Sandslash's body is covered by tough spikes, which are hardened sections of its hide. Once a year, the old spikes fall out, to be replaced with new spikes that grow out from beneath the old ones."
PVP Mode Explanatory Notes
PvP Moveset Explanation
Mud Shot is Sandslash's best fast move by far. While its damage output is far from impressive, its incredible energy generation gives it the best chance of leveraging its expensive Charged Moves.
Scorching Sands and Rock Tomb combine to maximize Sandslash's coverage, and while Rock Tomb isn't a very good move, it's at least better than Bulldoze. The addition of Night Slash* following the Sandshrew Community Day in March 2022 is an interesting but somewhat unimpressive one. Dark-type coverage doesn't solve Sandslash's problems, but at least its low energy cost enables faster shield pressure and baiting. Earthquake has the advantage of hitting very hard if not shielded, but its DPS (Damage per Energy) isn't too far above Scorching Sands, which has lower energy cost as well.
PvP Rating Explanation
Sandslash? More like Sadslash. Heavily outclassed by other Ground-types (especially Galarian Stunfisk, which has access to Rock Slide over Rock Tomb), Sandslash just isn't worth using. Its new Community Day move Night Slash makes it easier to pressure shields, but isn't enough for Sandslash to challenge most of the meta.
Same story as above, but add even more relevant Pokémon that can do the same thing.
Sandslash is basically a harmless, infant version of Groudon in the Master League.
