Stealth Rock lays a trap of stones around the foe, which hurts Pokemon switching in to the opposing field. The rocks inflicts variable damage - a fraction of the Pokemon's maximum HP, based on its susceptibility to the Rock type, as in the table to the right.

For example, a Fighting type switching in would lose 116 their maximum HP since Rock is not very effective against it. A Fire/Flying type would lose 12 their HP since Rock is super-effective against both Fire and Flying.

Stealth Rock can be cleared from the field by the moves Rapid Spin (around the user) or Defog (around the target).
