- Shellos is the only Pokémon with this Ability that can appreciate its full effect: the other thirteen Pokémon are naturally immune to damage from Sandstorm because of their type(s). However, if Soak were to be used on one of these Pokémon, they would still not take damage from Sandstorm thanks to this Ability.
- Moreover, if Gastro Acid were to be used on Shellos, it would take damage from Sandstorm and if both Gastro Acid and Soak were used on the rest of the Pokémon with this ability, they would take damage from Sandstorm as well.
