You're right, I made Sandshrew seem weak for the sake of RPing only. xD;
Or, to make it sound nicer, I gave the Sandshrew a weak.. character? So much so that he'll get blown away by one attack because he doesn't believe in his capabilities and strength. Adel's sure going to give that part of him a good fixing though. By the way, his name's Basil, which means kingly, which is exactly what Adel hopes to mould him into.
