Sandy Shocks location: Where to catch Sandy Shocks in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
- Head to the research station pictured above
Move through the Great Crater until you come to the research station in the image above. Once you leave the station, turn directly to the left.
- Head to the patch of rock
As seen in the above image, there is a patch of ground that is entirely rocky, sticking out from the grass. This area is also near a large rock slope, very close to the previously mentioned research center.
- Be patient
Sandy Shocks does not frequently spawn, even when you’re in the right area. It will appear after some time if you ride around the area for a while, but if it doesn’t appear at all, you can always leave the area, or fast travel to another base, then back to the one mentioned above, and Sandy Shocks should appear.
