Welcome back to “Who’s That Pokémon?the feature series regarding the Pokémon we can expect to see in the upcoming games. From Rowlet to Magearna, and Tapu Koko to Mudsdale, we have covered them all, but now that a huge amount of new Pokémon and Alolan versions of Pokémon we’ve already seen before, it’s time for a lot of new additions of Who’s That Pokémon? and in this particular post, it’s all about Alolan Sandslash!

 

Pokémon: Alolan SandslashType: Ice/Steel

Classification: Mouse Pokémon

Height: 2’04”

Weight: 88.2 lbs

Known Abilities: Snow Cloak

Known Moves: (None known at this time)

 

Description: “The Alolan Sandshrew of the snowy mountains evolve into Alolan Sandslash with spiny backs that are covered in ice. Thanks to their icy coating, these spines are large and sharp. Alolan Sandslash hide themselves in the snow when strong enemies appear, leaving only their needles exposed and ready for business.

The weight of the ice that covers its body makes these Alolan Sandslash heavier than normal Sandslash, and this causes them to be slower. Yet in snow fields and on ice, they move by creating a path with their claws, and so they’re able to move with swiftness.

The sprays of snow kicked up by Alolan Sandslash’s movements are so beautiful that many photographers head for the snowy peaks to capture the moment. However, Sandslash live deep in the mountains, and there is great danger of becoming stranded, so it’s forbidden to climb the mountains without permission.”
