Best answer

Acid rain is a glitch in Pokémon Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver that results in the simultaneous occurrence of all weather conditions at once, thus damaging all Pokémon on the field. Even though it was discovered before the English release of Platinum, it is present in all versions of the mentioned games.

This glitch will activate If any weather effect (excluding rain) is in effect, and a player uses Pursuit on a Pokémon that is switching out on that turn and causes it to faint.

Bulbapedia has a bunch of minor details on this if you want to know more.
