Sandslash is a Ground-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It is the evolved form of Sandshrew.

Appearance

Sandslash is a tall, yellow, mammalian creature with brown spikes on its back. It has two very long claws on each "hand" used for digging and battling. Sandslash can curl up to a small size just like its pre-evolved form Sandshrew, but it is of a much larger stature.

Evolution

Sandslash evolves from Sandshrew at level 22.

In the anime

  • In a episode called Good 'Quil Hunting!, a Trainer called Koji told Ash about a place that was good for catching some Cyndaquil. After Ash captured a Cyndaquil, the trainer challenged Ash to a 1-on-1 battle to see who would have the Cyndaquil. Koji used a Sandslash against Ash's Cyndaquil and he lost.
