Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have hundreds of different TMs that you can use to teach your Pokémons different moves, and one such move is TM 051 Sandstorm. It’s a ground-type move, meaning only some Pokémons types can learn it. When you use this move, your Pokémon causes a Sandstorm that damages the enemy Pokémons (except rock, steel, and ground types) for the next five turns and boosts your rock Pokémon’s Special Defence. The move has no Power and Accuracy stats, and it has 10 PP. To craft TM 051 Sandstorm in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, you need to find its materials and here is how you can do that.
