Pokemon Analysis

Tier List Explanation

Alolan Sandslash's strengths lie primarily in its Techy utility and siamese link to the powerful Hail archetype, the very things that render it particularly vulnerable to powercreep as it struggles to keep up with the damage of more recent Strikers and additional Ice-Type options chip away at the ubiquity of Hail. Although it remains the cornerstone of a solid archetype and a uniquely Techy general option, Sandlash is far from the meta definer it once was.
