Sandshrew (Japanese: サンド Sando) is a Template:Type-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I, and an Template:Type/Template:Type-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII which is exclusive to Pokémon Moon.

Biology

Physiology

Sandshrew has a white belly and a yellow back. Its back resembles bricked pavement or walls. It has a short tail, four short legs and a small head. Sandshrew resembles an armadillo, and can curl into a very tight ball: about the size of a basketball.

Alolan Sandshrew, having fled the desert due to frequent eruptions, has adapted to the cold climate of the snowy mountains. This Sandshrew has a white belly and an ice blue back. Its back resembles bricked pavement or walls albeit colored ice blue. It has a short tail, four short legs and a small head. The majority of its ice blue body is clad in steel-hard ice armour (also sporting the ice brick pattern).

Natural abilities

All Sandshrew have the ability Sand Veil, which raises evasion while there is a Sandstorm. All Alolan Sandshrew have the ability Snow Cloak, which raises evasion in Hail. Sandshrew, when in danger, can curl into a ball to defend itself. Alolan Sandshrew lack flexibility and cannot curl into a ball but have an excelling natural defense which makes up for this. They also have natural maneuverability on ice.

Behavior

Most Sandshrew are timid and they usually run away by digging holes. Despite this nature, they can become braver and more courageous once they're trained by skilled trainers.

Evolution

Sandshrew evolves into Sandslash once it reaches level 22.

Alolan Sandshrew evolves into Alolan Sandslash when exposed to an Ice Stone.
