Sand Stream

Summary: Changes the weather to a sandstorm for nine actions upon entering battle.


This Pokémon wields an arcane power over the weather, bringing lashing winds and clouds of swirling sand with it wherever it goes. When released onto the field, this Pokémon lets out a mighty roar, summoning a raging gale to it, which then picks up the sand or grit native to the arena and blows it around. A sandstorm is triggered when this Pokémon is brought onto the field, and will continue for nine actions, even if it leaves the field for any reason. However, the weather may be changed during those nine actions, and the sandstorm will not return after the other weather effect has ended unless the Pokémon with Sand Stream is recalled and sent out again. This ability has no effect in areas where weather is normally banned completely, or where Sandstorm is excluded.
