|lvl 110 move: Sand Blast|
|← Previous||Next →|
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. If it digs at an incredible pace, it may snap off its spikes and claws. They grow back in a day.
It 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. It is adept at attacking with the spines on its back and its sharp claws while quickly scurrying about.
