Sandshrew

enter image description here
Item: Eviolite
Trait: Sand Rush
Adamant / Jolly nature
EVs: 36 HP / 236 Atk / 36 SpD / 196 Spe
Moveset
~ Swords Dance
~ Earthquake
~ Rock Slide
~ Night Slash

With eviolite has the bulk to set up with Sword Dance and then with STAB Earthquake Sandshrew becomes a big threat in LC.


Although. Drilbur provides an even bigger threat.


Drilbur

enter image description here
Item: Eviolite
Trait: Sand Rush
Adamant nature
EVs: 236 Atk / 36 Def / 212 Spe
~ Swords Dance
~ Earthquake
~ Rock Slide
~ Shadow Claw

Which its superior bulk over Sandshrew, Drilbur becomes a real threat in LC and usualy overshadows the use of Sandshrew in LC. So because of the I urge you to use Drilbur unless you have a specific reason for using Drilbur.

why did you put Dtilbur? This is just a moveset question, don't add a set for a completely different pokemon.
I am suggesting it along side the Sandshrew set.
