Sand Tomb is a damage-dealing Ground-type move.

Effect

Sand Tomb inflicts 1/16 of the target's maximum HP as damage for four to five turns after use, in addition to the damage dealt when it is used. It also traps the target, preventing switching and escape.

If the user of Sand Tomb is holding a Grip Claw, the duration will always be 5 turns. If a Binding Band is held by the user, the damage done at the end of each turn will increase from 1/16 of the target's maximum HP to 1/8.

If a trapped Pokémon uses Rapid Spin, it will be freed. If a wild Pokémon uses Sand Tomb on the player's Pokémon, the player may escape if the affected Pokémon has Run Away or is holding a Smoke Ball. However, these do not allow the player to switch the Pokémon out. If an affected Pokémon is holding a Shed Shell, it can switch out.

Description

Description
