PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Pokémon like Emboar and Gigalith in Gen 5 have an animation that looks similar to rock tomb, where a ton of yellow dust comes out from under them if they're heavy enough. (i can't for the life of me find a picture of what I'm talking about)

Is there a list of all the Pokémon that have this effect? I'm thinking about doing a run with a full team of them.

Since Generation V, certain visual and sound effects are applied when a Pokémon lands on the surface of a battlefield, depending on the Pokémon's weight (ignoring weight-changing effects). Diglett, Dugtrio, and Pokémon that float above the surface of the battlefield do not cause any such effects. Pokémon holding an Air Balloon also do not cause any such effects, even if the item's function is being suppressed by Klutz or Magic Room.

  • Small shake and high-pitched landing noise for Pokémon weighing 49.9 kg (110.0 lbs.) or less.
  • Medium shake and lower landing noise for Pokémon weighing between 50 kg (110.2 lbs.) and 149.9 kg (330.5 lbs.).
  • Heavy shake, crashing sound and dust for Pokémon weighing 150 kg (330.7 lbs.) or more.

A list of Pokemon by weight can be found here. That link should take you directly to the Pokemon weighing 150 kg. All of the Pokemon after Emboar that are in Gen 5 and land on the surface of the battlefield will cause this effect.
