G-Max Sandblast (Japanese: キョダイサジン Kyodai Sandstorm) is a damage-dealing Ground-type G-Max Move introduced in Generation VIII. It is the exclusive G-Max Move of Gigantamax Sandaconda.


G-Max Sandblast inflicts damage to a target and binds the target for four to five turns. This binding effect is similar to Sand Tomb, except that it doesn't end prematurely if Sandaconda switches out or faints. Its power and whether it is a special or physical move depends on the move it is based on.

Base move Power Cat.
