Is anyone opposed to putting that this move is affected by Type match-ups? It may be a tad obvious but I don't think Spikes is (aside from immunities), and they're both similar moves. --ZellMurasame 01:05, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

I say we should stick it in. After all, it is kinda special in that way. Tina δ 01:08, 24 December 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, I was thinking that since this move is affected by type match-ups, does that include STAB? Can someone test this out? --ZellMurasame 02:08, 25 December 2007 (UTC)

Nope, you don't get STAB from Stealth Rock. Tina δ 02:09, 25 December 2007 (UTC)


Miltank is listed as able to learn Stealth Rock on this page, but on Miltank's own page, it isn't. Would someone be able to clear up which it is? - unsigned comment from Timothy (talkcontribs)

It can. Someone f'd up when doing the TM thing. I'll add it on her page. TTEchidna 20:23, 27 July 2008 (UTC)

Only non-level move?

I swear there were others. TTEchidna 19:15, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

there are. --Blastoise Rules!!! 19:21, 17 September 2008 (UTC)

Multiple Spikes

Can you put 3 layers of Spikes AND 1 layer of STealth Rock? If you can, are there any pokémon that can learn both, as well as Roar/Whirlwind? - unsigned comment from Sk8torchic (talkcontribs)

Look it up... ht14 18:51, 2 March 2009 (UTC)
Or, if you don't want to/can't find the answer, yes. You can lay 3 layers of spikes, 2 layers of Toxic Spikes, and one layer of Stealth Rock. And they can all be down simultaneously. As for learning all three, only Foretress, Omastar, and Smeargle learn all three, but only Smeargle gets Roar/Whirlwind. Oh, but Skarmory does get Whirlwind, Roar, Spikes, and Stealth Rock, but no Toxic Spikes. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 18:55, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Thank you, missingno master. Thouch, i din't ask about toxic spikes. Me and my fellow torchics agree on this - Sk8torchic. 23:57, 3 March 2009 (UTC)

Charti Berry

Charti Berry "weakens a foe's super-effective Rock-type attack". Stealth Rock can be super-effective. Does that mean that, if I switch in a Pokemon that's weak to Rock when Stealth Rock is in play, Charti Berry will trigger? Or does it not count because Stealth Rock is a passive attack?

learning method

Hi,I was just wondering. The page suggests that rhyhorn family and nidoking,in gen 6,can pass down stealth rock through breeding. I checked their pages (and tried to breed down stealth rock to rhyhorn via breeding with tyrunt if that mattered),and it doesn't seem that they can learn it,either by levelling up or breeding,since tm for stealth rock isn't in the sixth gen. Can anyone provide answer? ThanksFiky f (talk) 05:33, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

In the only case where a Rhyhorn or Nidoking is absolutely necessary to pass down the move in XY (Swinub), it is noted by Swinub's name that the fathers needed have to originate from a Gen 4 game or BW2 with the move already learned via TM or move tutor, and then be imported to XY; this is the only way to have that specific list of Stealth Rockers in XY. But Rhyhorn and Nidoran are in no way suggested, on this page, to be able to learn Stealth Rock as an Egg Move in XY or any other game. Kai * the Arc Toraph 11:42, 13 July 2014 (UTC)
I see,I thought there were other ways for them to learn it that i may have missed.Thank you... Fiky f (talk) 07:48, 14 July 2014 (UTC)

Multiple Errors in the 'By Generation Section'

Stealth Rock was a move introduced in Generation IV (DPP). In this generation, contrary to what is currently indicated in this article, Magic Coat DOES reflect Stealth Rock so that it sets on the opponents side of the field rather than yours. Further contrary to the article as written, Defog does NOT remove Stealth Rock or any entry hazards in Gen IV. Further, In Generation V (BW) Defog continues to not affect entry hazards, I repeat, it does not remove entry hazards such as Stealth rock in Gen V battles. The only way to remove hazards throughout Gen 2-6 (GSC waswhen spikes was introduced) to Gen V is by using the move Rapid Spin. In Gen VI (ORAS) Defog finally gained the affect of removing entry hazards on both sides of the field. Myzozoa (talk) 22:49, 25 February 2018 (UTC)

I just tested Magic Coat vs Stealth Rock in-game in Generation IV. Magic Coat does not affect Stealth Rock in Generation IV. Is there a particular reason that you believe it does?
Defog does remove Stealth Rock in Generation IV and V, but only from the target's side of the field (which is what the article stated). I've edited the wording a little to make this point more obvious. --SnorlaxMonster 13:43, 27 February 2018 (UTC)
