Sand Veil
In-game description
Boosts the Pokémon's evasion in a sandstorm.

Sand Veil is an ability introduced in Generation III. So far, 9 Pokémon have this ability.


In battle

During a sandstorm, the evasion of the Pokémon with this Ability is increased by 25%. The Pokémon with this Ability will take no damage from the sandstorm if it otherwise would. It can be considered a sandstorm counterpart to Snow Cloak.

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Sand Veil is the leading the party while travelling in a sandstorm, wild Pokémon are only half as likely to appear. However, as no sandstorms appear in the overworld, this effect is currently unused.
