Effect on Steel-type
Should we mentioned Gastro Acid also work on Steel-type despite as a Poison-type move? in my test, a wild Weepinbell can cancel my Magnezone 's ability.chungkingpun 07:20, 9 November 2008 (UTC)
- Though it's long since this question was posed, since it wasn't answered... no. Sand-Attack works on Flying-types and Pokémon with Levitate. Seems the only immunity preserved for status moves is Ground to Electric. TTEchidna 04:30, 19 July 2009 (UTC)
- I've noted this on Damage modification, as most status moves are exempt from type matchups altogether; Thunder Wave has always been one of the exceptions. --Stratelier 19:16, 27 April 2011 (UTC)
Is it known for sure whether or not this move can hit your partner in a double or triple battle? LimeGreenCharizard♂ 12:33, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
- "Furthermore, Gastro Acid does not negate Abilities that have an immediate effect at the start of the battle, such as Drizzle, because the Ability will activate before Gastro Acid can even be used."
Well, Slow Start _is_ activated at the very beginning, yet it's still undone by Gastro Acid. --Det (talk) 11:52, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
