So you know how theres Pokemon refresh and not AL Pokémon get muddy? Ie ny Hipowdon has Sand Stream but it never gets dusty As it is already a ground type but sometimes it gets muddy what us causing that? I know this is kind of a random question but curious minds want to know at least mine does XD

I don't think there's any documentation of this because nobody used Pokemon Refresh and the "conditions" don't really matter

Pokémon Refresh

During a battle with a wild Pokémon or Trainer, there are four ways the player's Pokémon can become dirty, each requiring a different tool to clean it up.

Comb: cleanly grooms a Pokémon. A Pokémon may randomly need grooming after a battle after performing an offensive move, the chance of which may increase with longer battles. Specific moves such as Darkest Lariat that are used by the player's Pokémon always result in the Pokémon requiring combing after the battle. Only Pokémon with fur or feathers can be groomed with a comb.

Brush: dusts off sand the Pokémon picks up from using or being hit by moves like Sand Attack, Bulldoze, and Rototiller. Pokémon that battle in a sandstorm also can be brushed after battle.

Towel: wipes away dirt the Pokémon picks up from using or being hit by certain moves, like Mud-Slap, Mud Sport, or Sludge Wave.

Dryer: dries out a Pokémon that has been hit by or used a move like Water Gun or Icicle Spear. Also dries Pokémon after a battle in the rain. Many Water-type Pokémon do not need drying.

I don't think that's a full list.
You probably didn't see, but Aurora asked for a full list of all the moves that make a Pokemon muddy
i know Mud Sport, Mud Shot, and Mud-Slap make pokemon get muddy. Sludge, Sludge Bomb, and Sludge Wave make Pokemon muddy too. Not sure if that's a comprehensive list so i'm not going to answer this q yet.
It’s a good answer Hollow but Coco and Dragapulse are right. I’m still looking for a full list of moves. Theres gotta be one i can’t be the ONLY human  who ever wanted to know XD well i guess i can since no one else asked the qustion but you get my point XD

me once I open Ultra Sun: im bored
Well the  haw dare ye call US boring maybe you’re what’s boring lol jk you don’t really need to test every move...i hope that just sounds miserable.
no i meant the thought of testing every move bores me XD
