Sleight of Sand! (Japanese: パチリスはカバルドンの口の中!? Pachirisu is in Kabarudon's Mouth!?) is the 65th episode of Diamond & Pearl series, and the 531st episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on January 31, 2008 and in the United States on July 12, 2008.

When our heroes' Pokémon are having a fun time in a sandpit, a Hippowdon appears from within. However, the over-curious Pachirisu can't help peeping into the mouth of Hippowdon and accidentally falls into it...


Template:Incomplete synopsis The episode starts, showing Hippowdon walking. Pachirisu peeps its head out of one of the Hippowdon's holes in its back. It gasps as it sees Butch and Cassidy's Rhyhorn machine starting to keep up with Hippowdon. It goes back inside. The screen shows the giant claw coming closer. Then the screen shows Ash putting his foot on sand and sliding down a cliff, with Hippopotas on Ash's shoulders. Brock slides down too, so does Pikachu, Piplup, and Dawn. Butch and Cassidy's Rhyhorn machine drives down.
