From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Air Lock (Japanese: エアロック Air Lock) is an Ability introduced in Generation III. It is the signature Ability of Rayquaza.
When a Pokémon with Air Lock is in battle, all effects of weather are negated (though the weather itself 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 extremely harsh sunlight, heavy rain, and strong winds, even if a Pokémon is negating the effects of weather with Air Lock, the moves Sunny Day, Rain Dance, Sandstorm, and Hail will still fail if used, and the Abilities Drought, Drizzle, Sand Stream, and Snow Warning will still fail to activate. However, all other effects of these weather conditions are negated by Air Lock.
Outside of battle
Air Lock has no effect outside of battle.

In other games
In Red Rescue Team and Blue Rescue Team, and Explorers of Time, Darkness, Air Lock changes the current weather to Clear upon entering a floor, and then every subsequent 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.
In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, Air Lock nullifies the effects of the weather rather than changing the weather to Clear. Abilities such as Drizzle, and moves such as Rain Dance will still activate, but the effects of the weather will remain negated.
