Sandile (Japanese: メグロコ Meguroco) is a dual-type Ground/Dark Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves into Waruvile starting at level 29, which then evolves into Waruvial starting at level 40.

Biology

Physiology

Sandile is a primarily tan-colored, quadruped crocodilian Pokémon, having a long snout as typical of crocodilians, and a thick black stripe on the bridge. Sandile's eyes are round and sepia-colored, with a circular pattern of black around them stretching between each eye, giving the impression of an archetypal robber’s mask or a pair of glasses, with the ridges surrounding the eyes being large and protruding. Two thick black stripes are present down Sandile's back, stretching to its pink-colored underside and encompassing its tan-colored limbs, which sport three claws each that are also black; additionally, its tapered tail is tipped with the color.

Trivia

Origin

Sandile seems to be based on a crocodile. It has traits from both the slender-snouted crocodile and the spectacled caiman. Its striped design is similar to a stereotypical burglar.

Name origin

Sandile is a combination of "sand" and "crocodile". Meguroco may be a combination of 目黒 meguro meaning black-eyed, and "crocodile". Mascaïman is probably a combination of masque meaning mask, and caïman, a species of crocodilian.
