Sand Stream
In-game description
The Pokémon summons a sandstorm in battle.

Sand Stream is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 2 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

Sand Stream summons a sandstorm in battle as soon as the bearer is sent. Its effects are the same as Sandstorm's; It lasts for 5 turns or until a different weather condition replaces it, unless the user is holding a Smooth Rock, in which case it will last for 8 turns. If a Pokémon with Sand Stream is sent out in the same turn as another Pokémon whose Ability causes a different weather condition, the slower Pokémon's Ability will override the faster Pokémon's Ability.

Outside of battle

Sand Stream has no effect outside of battle.
