Sandstorm is a non-damaging Rock-type move. It is TM37.

Effect[]

When this move is used a sandstorm will brew. This effect will last for 5 turns. This clears any other weather effect and is usable when the weather is sandstorm.

Sandstorm now fails when used while Sandstorm is in effect. If a Smooth Rock is held when Sandstorm is used, its duration is lengthened from 5 to 8 turns.

While Sandstorm is in effect:

  • All Rock-type Pokémon have their Special Defense raised by 50%.
  • All Pokémon who are neither Steel-, Rock-, nor Ground-type will be damaged 1/16 of their maximum HP at the end of each turn. Pokémon in the semi-invulnerable turn of Dig and Dive will not take damage from Sandstorm, regardless of type.
  • The moves Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover 1/4 of the user's maximum HP.
  • Weather Ball becomes Rock-type.
  • Pokémon with the Sand Force ability get a power boost of 30% for their Rock-, Ground- and Steel-type moves, and are immune to Sandstorm's damaging effect.
  • Pokémon with the Sand Rush ability have their Speed doubled, and are immune to Sandstorm's damaging effect.
  • Pokémon with the Sand Veil ability increase their evasion by 20%, and are immune to Sandstorm's damaging effect.

Description[]

Description
A five-turn sandstorm is summoned to hurt all combatants except the Rock, Ground, and Steel types.
