Sand Tomb (Japanese: すなじごく Sand Hell) is a damage-dealing Template:Type2 move introduced in Generation III.

Effect

Generation III

Sand Tomb inflicts 1/16 of the target's maximum HP as damage for two to five turns upon use, in addition to the damage dealt when it is used. It also traps the target, preventing switching and escape. If a trapped Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed. If a wild Pokémon uses Sand Tomb on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out.

Sand Tomb has a Power of 15 and an accuracy of 70.

Generation IV

In Generation IV, if the user of Sand Tomb is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns. Also, if an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.

Generation V

Sand Tomb's Power and accuracy were increased to 35 and 85. Sand Tomb now lasts four to five turns.

Trivia

The Japanese name, すなじごく Sand Hell, is probably an idiom referring to the trap an ant lion nymph (q.v. Trapinch) uses to catch prey—a small pit in sand that ants can easily stumble into, but can't climb out of. The nymph itself lies hidden at the bottom of the pit.
