Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Mud Shot is superior to Metal Claw for STAB and general type effectiveness.

  • Bulldoze is slightly superior to Earthquake for weave DPS, but both are good choices due to STAB.

  • Rock Tomb is a poor move in itself, and lacks STAB or synergy with Sandslash’s fast moves.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Metal Claw has slightly better defensive DPS than Mud Shot.

  • All of Sandslash’s charge moves are easily reactable, but Rock Tomb at least has good coverage against some Ground-type counters.

  • Bulldoze is superior to Earthquake purely for the lower energy cost.

Rating Explanation:

Sandslash’s pure Ground-typing can be appealing; it is one of the few Ground-types available with access to Mud Shot. Unfortunately, the Ground type is currently lacking in high DPS moves, and Sandslash’s mediocre Atk stat does it no favors as an attacker candidate. On defense, Sandslash is hampered by poor fast moves, many common weaknesses, and unimpressive stats.
