PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I was playing showdown with a person, and while we were playing, I dynamaxed my Boldore, my opponents Kyogre used Whirlpool, but when I used Max Rockfall, the Whirlpool effect went away. Was this a glitch, or does Sandstorm remove Whirlpool, Fire Spin, etc? Here is the replay: https://replay.pokemonshowdown.com/gen8challengecup-1367014469

It's not a bug or glitch.

If the user switches out, the target will be freed

Since Kyogre fainted, Boldore was freed from whirlpool.

Ok, thanks! I'm assuming it also counts with fainting?
Yes, of course you switch out fainted Pokemon.
