Sandstorm is a weather-affecting Rock-type move introduced in Generation II.

Effects in Battle[edit | edit source]

  • Damages all Pokémon except Rock-, Ground- and Steel-type Pokémon
  • Will increase the Sp. Def. of Rock-type Pokémon by x1.5
  • SolarBeam's power is reduced by half
  • Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight will recover 1/4 of the total HP, instead of 1/2
  • Weather Ball changes to Rock-type and doubles inpower.
  • Castform's Forecast however doesn't change Castform's type, so it will still be damaged by Sandstorm.
  • The Smooth Rock increases the duration of the sandstorm.
  • Pokémon with the Sand Veil ability will not be affected, even if they aren't a Rock, Ground or Steel type Pokémon (for example, Cacnea is a Grass-type and has the Sand Veil ability, so it doesn't get damaged), and will also have a 20% increase in evasion.
  • Pokémon with the Sand Stream ability will create a semi-permanent sandstorm upon switching in
