Sandstorm

#201
Status
PPPowerAccuracyTarget
10%Affects all Pokémon on the field

Causes a sandstorm to brew for 5 turns, damaging every Pokémon on the field for 1/16 HP each turn (except if they're in the semi-vulnerable turn of Dig and Dive). Does not damage Steel-, Rock- and Ground-type Pokémon, and Pokémon with Sand Veil, Sand Rush, or Sand Force. Raises the Special Defense of Rock types by 50%, boosts the evasion of Pokémon with Sand Veil (the accuracy of moves used against them is modified by a factor of 4/5), doubles the Speed of Pokémon with Sand Rush, and Pokémon with Sand Force get a power boost of 30% for their Rock-, Ground- and Steel-type moves. Also causes Weather Ball to become Rock-type, and Synthesis, Morning Sun, and Moonlight to restore only 1/4 HP. Fails during heavy rain, extremely harsh sunlight, or a mysterious air current. The duration of Sand Storm is increased to 8 turns if the user is holding a Smooth Rock.
