I think your friend might be Scrappy Pangoro.
Pangoro
With Scrappy, Pangoro can hit Sandygast with False Swipe. It also has strong Dark-type moves to KO unwanted Sandygast. Seeing as Scrappy is Pangoro's Hidden Ability, you will want to chain for a Scrappy Pancham outside of Po Town, using Skill Swap or Entrainment to see which ones are Scrappy.

Once you have a Pangoro, and have given it a swell nickname (for example, Jack Black Eye), chain for Sandygast as you would normally: using False Swipe, then KOing Sandygast with Crunch/Night Slash while occasionally False Swiping a new Sandygast to prevent the chain from breaking. Be sure to pack lots of Hyper Potions and Leppa Berries, as well as Adrenaline Orbs and a Pokémon with Stun Spore for when you've found your Shiny Sandygast.

Happy hunting!

Thanks. Also do you think an ability capsule will work?
No, because Scrappy is a Hidden Ability, and Ability Capsules only swap regular abilities.

Use level 30+ Fearow as your main Pokemon with false swipe and other attacks
the support Pokemon will be level 30+ Woobat or Swoobat with Odor Sleuth:

  1. Start with Odor Sleuth on the sandygast and switch to Fearow .
  2. chain until you think its time to switch the calling sandygast .
  3. switch to support and then use Odor Sleuth on the other sandygast.
  4. switch back to Fearow and faint the old one.
  5. go back to step 2.

you will need a lot of Leppa berries and Sitrus berries but with pokeplego level 3 its not that hard.

IMPORTANT: USE 100% ACCURACY MOVES TO FAINT THE NON SHINY ONCE YOU FIND A SHINY ONE. AND DON'T ATTACK THE SHINY JUST TRY TO CATCH IT.

PS: the moment I'm writing this I just got a shiny sandygast around 120 sos calls.
