Sandslash (Japaneseサンドパン Sandpan) is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Sandshrew starting at level 22.

In Alola, Sandslash has a regional variant that is Ice/Steel. It evolves from Alolan Sandshrew when exposed to an Ice Stone.

Biology

 

Sandslash is a bipedal, ground dwelling pholidote Pokémon. Although Sandslash is usually bipedal, it can run on all fours. Most of its underside is light yellow with a white underbelly. It has a narrow muzzle, almond-shaped blue eyes, and a thick tail. Its back is mostly covered in sharp, brown quills formed from its tough, dry hide. It has two large claws on its paws and feet. These claws are its primary weapons, and are used for slashing. They can also be used for burrowing. Its claws and spikes can both break off and are shed regularly, but grow back quickly. It can curl into a large ball to protect its white underbelly. In this position, it can roll to attack or escape and protect itself from heatstroke. Sandslash is also adept at climbing trees, and is prone to ambush its enemies from above. Sandslash can mostly be found in deserts.

In the Alola region, Sandslash has an icy blue hide and quills covered in ice. These quills stand taller than a regular Sandslash's quills, and resemble icicles. This Pokémon uses its hide for camouflage in the snow, while leaving only its spines exposed. Its forepaws are larger than its counterpart, and its claws are longer, thinner, and hooked at the tips. Despite the weight of its ice-covered body, Alolan Sandslash is able to move swiftly by carving a path in the snow with its claws. This Pokémon tends to live in the deeper parts of snowy mountains, where climbing is forbidden. However, the sprays of snow it kicks up are popular shots for photographers.[1]

Major appearances

A Sandslash owned by Corey was one of the Pokémon captured and cloned by Mewtwo in Mewtwo Strikes Back. When Team Rocket saw it being cloned, it was mistaken for its pre-evolution, Sandshrew. The Sandslash clone was seen again in Mewtwo Returns.

In Good 'Quil Hunting, a Pokémon Trainer named Koji informed Ash about a place that was good for catching Cyndaquil. After Ash captured a Cyndaquil, the Trainer challenged Ash to a 1-on-1 Pokémon battle to determine who would keep the Cyndaquil. Koji used a Sandslash against Ash's Cyndaquil and lost.

In Bulbasaur... the Ambassador!, several Sandslash helped dig a new lake for the Grass-type Pokémon at Professor Oak's Laboratory.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness, Sandslash was a member of Team Razor Wind, along with Scyther and Zangoose. The trio of clawed Pokémon were first seen being blasted out of Wigglytuff's Guild. Team Razor Wind overheard that Team Poképals were assigned with the task of traveling to the Labyrinth Cave to get a Gabite Scale for an ailing Shinx, and decided to attempt beating Team Poképals. Unfortunately for Team Razor Wind, Gabite beat them up. It reappeared alongside its team in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky - Beyond Time & Darkness.

Ruby 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.
Sapphire Sandslash can roll up its body as if it were a ball covered with large spikes. In battle, this Pokémon will try to make the foe flinch by jabbing it with its spines. It then leaps at the stunned foe to tear wildly with its sharp claws.
Emerald It curls up in a ball to protect itself from enemy attacks. It also curls up to prevent heatstroke during the daytime when temperatures rise sharply.
FireRed It is adept at attacking with the spines on its back and its sharp claws while quickly scurrying about.
LeafGreen Curls up into a spiny ball when threatened. It can roll while curled up to attack or escape.
Generation IV

HeartGold In an attempt to hide itself, it will run around at top speed to kick up a blinding dust storm.
SoulSilver If it digs at an incredible pace, it may snap off its spike and claws. They grow back in a day.
Generation V  
Black It curls up, then rolls into foes with its back. Its sharp spines inflict severe damage.
White
Black 2 The spikes on its body are made up of its hardened hide. It rolls up and attacks foes with its spikes.

Generation VII  
Sun Although they are sharp, its claws and spikes often break off. They grow back the next day, so it is not bothered by the temporary loss.
Moon It uses its claws to climb trees and then curls its body into a spiny ball, ready to drop onto any prey that appears.
