Leave a review, I respond to all (eventually).



You could have done better...I mean except for that one part this one have been great!Maybe next time...

Guns & Roses on the Beach?

You missed a trick there, Craig my friend.

Give Sandslash a hat, guitar and a high pitched whiny prat who expresses his opinions all too much and you've got yourself a perfect Sandslash

Hitler's camoflauge has let him down this episode - he appears to be wearing my bathroom rug on his back. When will I be receiving this back, by the way, the floor is quite cold.

I shouldn't argue with him, those claws look quite menacing

It should have arrived by air-mail by now.


I never had much chance at catching this pokemon, simply because it wasn't in my game. Nontheless I remember in the show, the main character facing one and compleatley getting destroyed by it. I did like the music in this one, even if the file size was a bit big for my tastes. Hitler looks really funny in this one with his big fur, and that background works out quite niceley. Good job on this one.

AfroUnderscoreStud responds:

Ash sucks.


lol hitler looks so funny. lol great job. keep up the great work as always.

AfroUnderscoreStud responds:


Sandslash! :D

Hitler got his Sandshrew evolve into a Sandslash, yay! :D Sandslash Hitler here is hilarious. What I really liked here was his back. XD The music, ehh, I really didn't like it. However, that doesn't make the flash worse. Overall, this flash is great! Excellent work Afro_Stud and now onto the Nidoran family. :D

Sandslash (Japanese: Sandpan) is a Ground-type Pokémon. It was first available in Pokémon Green and Pokémon Blue, and is also available in Pokémon Yellow, Pokémon Gold and Silver, Pokémon Crystal, Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, Pokémon LeafGreen and Pokémon Emerald.

Sandslash comes with the Ability Sand Veil, which raises evasiveness during a Sandstorm.



A Sandslash is a ground-dwelling rodent notable for its offensive and defensive capabilities. Its body is mostly covered in sharp quills formed from its tough, dry hide. It can curl into a large ball to protect its underbelly, and in this position it can roll to attack or escape. Its primary weapon is the large claws on its paws, which can be used to slash at enemies but which also useful for burrowing quickly and can sometimes be poisoned. Its claws and spikes can both break off and are shed regularly, but grow back quickly.

Special abilities

Sandslash's special abilities are extremely limited compared to other Pokémon. It has a greater control over the ground and sand than the average Pokémon, mostly derived from adaptation to its habitat.

Like all evolved Pokémon, Sandslash can generate a Hyper Beam.


In the wild, Sandslash are more offensive than their preevolution, Sandshrew, but are still mostly defensive by nature. They spend much of their time hidden underground in their burrows and will kick up sand or curl into a ball to escape predators.

When needed, they can perform a variety of techniques to attack enemies, including slashing at them, rolling at them while curled up, and even climbing trees and attacking from above. With the assistance of a trainer, they can become very strong and aggressive fighters.


They are adapted to dry, arid areas. Thus, they can mostly be found in deserts and grasslands, and sometimes in river valleys or the upper levels of caves as well. Wherever they are, they live underground in burrows.


Sandslash do not require a lot of water, due to a very efficient system of staying hydrated with minimal moisture. They hunt for prey in the wild.

In the anime

Sandslash first appeared in To Master the Onixpected. It was stuck underneath the rocky skin of a giant Onix and causing so much pain, that the Rock Snake Pokémon was on a rampage. Bruno helped to get the Sandslash out.

A Sandslash was one of the Pokémon that was captured and cloned by Mewtwo in Mewtwo Strikes Back. When Team Rocket saw this Pokémon being cloned, it was mistaken for its pre-evolution, Sandshrew.

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'd keep the Cyndaquil. That trainer used a Sandslash against Ash's Cyndaquil.

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

Sandslash also made a cameo in Numero Uno Articuno as a Pokémon belonging to Noland.

In the manga

In Pokémon Special, Sandslash's most dominant appearance was in Volume 12, VS Sandslash. While trying to find out their location, Gold and Silver are attacked by a swarm of spiky balls, which are revealed to be Sandslash migrating in response to the wrath of Lugia.


Sandslash's original name was "Sandstorm".


Sandslash share various physical traits with both hedgehogs and pangolins.

Name origin

Sandslash's name is a combination of sand and slash, referring to its long claws. Its Japanese name may be a combination of sand and pangolin.

In other languages

German: Sandamer
French: Sablaireau - Sable means sand, and blaireau means badger.
Korean: Koji
Chinese (Hong Kong and Taiwan): Chuan Shan Wáng - A portmanteau of Chuan Shan Jia, meaning pangolin, and king.
