Effect

Sand Veil raises the ability-bearer's evasion by 20% in a sandstorm. It also gives immunity to sandstorm damage (if they are not already protected by being Ground/Rock/Steel type).

Outside of battle

If a Pokémon with Sand Veil is leading the party Pokémon while travelling in a sandstorm, wild Pokémon are only half as likely to appear.
