              Sandygast is a Ground/Ghost Pokémon first introduced in Pokémon Sun & Moon. Sandygast’s design is based on the idea of a sandcastle possessed by a ghost. Its normal form has a sandy beige body and eyes, representing sand, and a small red shovel on its head. Its shiny form makes Sandygast’s body look like it’s made of black sand, while its shovel changes to yellow and its eyes to blue.


              Sandygast evolves into Palossand at Level 42.

              Preferred Location

              The best location to hunt shiny Sandygast in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet is on the Secluded Beach in the southwest area of Paldea.

              Best Method To Hunt

              The best shiny hunting method for Sandygast is to make a Sparkling and Encounter Power: Ground Lv.3 Sandwich. Sandygast is the only Ground-type Pokémon that spawns in the suggested area, so it can be easily isolated using this Sandwich.

              Sandwich Recipe

              The easiest way to make a Sparkling and Encounter Power: Ground Lv.3 Sandwich is by using:

              • 1 Ham
              • A combination of 1 Salty Herba Mystica + 1 Sweet/Spicy/Sour Herba Mystica

              If you don't have Salty Herba Mystica, use this recipe:

              • 1 Pickle + 1 Cucumber
              • 3 Ham
              • Any 2 Herba Mystica combination besides 1 Sweet + 1 Sour

              Tips for Hunting

              The best way to hunt shiny Sandygast is to travel along the Secluded Beach, ensuring that any spawned Pokémon leave the screen as you move to reset the spawns. If needed, you can also reset the spawns by opening up a picnic and then closing it back out.

              It’s important to note that when it’s raining in the game, Sandygast will automatically melt and despawn. Thankfully, if a shiny Sandygast spawns during rain, it won’t despawn, giving you a chance to capture it — phew!
