| Air Lock
Air Lock (Japanese: エアロック Air Lock) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. It is the signature Ability of Rayquaza. Possessing this Ability ties Rayquaza to its mythology of stopping the battle between Kyogre and Groudon by stopping their influence on the weather.
When a Pokémon with Air Lock is in battle, all effects of weather are negated (the weather does not disappear).
When a Pokémon with Air Lock is brought out, the message "The effects of weather disappeared." will be displayed after the Ability is announced.
During heavy rain, extremely harsh sunlight and strong winds, even if a Pokémon is negating the effects of weather with Air Lock, the moves Rain Dance, Sunny Day, Sandstorm, and Hail will fail if used; and the Abilities Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will fail. However, all other effects of these weather conditions are negated by Air Lock.
Outside of battle
Air Lock has no effect outside of battle.
Pokémon Mystery Dungeon
In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, the current weather will be changed to Clear every 36 turns. Air Lock will take precedence over Drizzle, Drought, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning. Additionally, this Ability prevents the use of the moves Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Hail, and Sandstorm.
