Flavor Info

Pokédex Entries

Pindillo are shy Pokémon that will disappear into the sand as soon as they are spotted. Their large, powerful claws and sleek bodies allow them to move through sand as though they are swimming.


A Pindillo might poke its head out of the sand if it hears catchy music. They will scratch one another's backs because they like the sound produced by claws tapping up and down their armor.
