Sandy Shocks can only be obtained once you’ve completed the main game and the end credits have rolled. Travel to Area Zero and search along the rocky terrain by Research Outpost 2 to find it.

The good news is that Sandy Shocks will respawn just like most other Pokemon in the Paldea region, so don’t worry if you accidentally defeat it in battle – leave and come back to this area.
