  • Ability - Hyper Cutter or Iron Fist

Sandyghast - Ghost/Ground

  • Ability - Water Compaction 

This Ghost and Ground type comes from the grudges of fallen Pokemon that soak into the sand after battle. They use their power to manipulate children into making them bigger by adding more sand.

The new ability, Water Compaction, raises its Defense by 2 stages when hit by a Water type move.

Palossand - Ghost/Ground

Stufful - Normal/Fighting
