The Ultimate Showdown: Team Pokemon vs Team Shadow Pokemon - Page 392
Kage: *Nods* If you leave the ice too long, on you it will burn.
Diane: Would the same happen if snow gets stuck down your shirt?
Diane: at least, until it melts, right?
Kage: *Nods* Kira's gotten Frost Bite, before.
Diane: Ice-types don't get it, do they?
Kage: No, it isn't possible.
Diane: That explain why, when the move hail is used, the ice types aren't affected?
Kage: Yes, and the move Sandstorm, won't effect Ground-types.
Zoltan: Because it's a Gound-type move.
Diane: So it shouldn't affect birds either, right?
(And yet, it does.)
(It doesn't effect the same type of the Pokemon, like Chaos Storm, I think it was called, in Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness, that the move wouldn't hurt the Shadow Pokemon, but hurts non-Shadow Pokemon.)
Kage: *Stands up and walks into Yami's room*
