Pokédex entries

Pokédex Entries
Sun
Born from a sand mound playfully built by a child, this Pokémon embodies the grudges of the departed.
Moon
It takes control of anyone who puts a hand in its mouth. And so it adds to the accumulation of its sand-mound body.
Ultra Sun
It likes the shovel on its head, so Sandygast will get serious and fight any children who come to take it back.
Ultra Moon
If you build sand mounds when you’re playing, destroy them before you go home, or they may get possessed and become Sandygast.
