Sandster is a dual-type Ground/Dark Pokémon.

It evolves into Monstune when levelled up while knowing Quicksand.

Biology

Physiology

Gender Differences

None.

Special abilities

Sandster can trap its prey by trapping them in quicksand. If people or Pokémon that are stronger than it see it, it will use the sand to make itself look bigger and stronger. If that doesn't work, it will use Sandstorm and flee.

Behavior

Sandster are very mischievous Pokémon. They like to scare other Pokémon and take food or shiny objects away from people and Pokémon.

Habitat

Likes to live in deserts, especially sand dunes, so it can trap prey in a quick sand trap.
