Does sandstorm boost rock type moves' accuracy?

0 votes

Today I noticed that my Tyranitar never missed a stone edge for 4-5 battles straight and the only time I missed was when I got an accuracy drop. Does a sandstorm have anything to do with this or was it just plain out luck?

You just got pretty lucky :P
The only thing sandstorm affects apart from the residual damage is that rock types will get a 1.5 SDef boost under the weather (their Special defense will increase by 50%). Only Rain and Sun affect the power of moves.

Ahhh ok. Thanks!
Blizzard also is buffed in the hail accuracy wise.
This answer is very old. Could you please not comment on older answers unless you have a question on it? Thanks :3
