Talk:Gastro Acid (move)
Effect on Steel-type
- 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)
- "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."
Works on Primal Kyogre/Groudon/Mega Rayquaza's Abilities
Oddly enough this move even seems to work on the Mega/Primal Evolutions of the Hoenn Legendary Trio in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire (on the abilities Primordial Sea, Desolate Land, and Delta Stream, respectively). After these abilities are suppressed, the special weather conditions are immediately removed. I gotta say, while I was very surprised that it worked, it made catching Primal Kyogre SO much easier... --Ulithium Dragon (talk) 22:55, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
I feel like the "Trivia" section should be amended to point out that this move works on legendary Pokemon's weather effect moves (I just tested and it works on the abilities from the X and Y pokemon (I don't feel like trying to spell THOSE names)), but I wanted to ask other people's thoughts first, since I've noticed the staff on here can be pretty fierce in making sure no non-relevant information gets put on the pages... --Ulithium Dragon (talk) 23:07, 18 December 2014 (UTC)
