The waste is watching…


Wasteland is one of the Field Effects. It appears constantly in Byxbysion Wasteland. Unlike most other field effects, it cannot be summoned by any means, whether by transforming another field or by some combination of moves, nor can it be transformed or terminated by any permanent means.

Entry hazards are consumed at the end of each turn, dealing a special effect to the side the entry hazards were placed on:

  • Stealth Rock will deal twice the typical type-scaling Rock damage
  • Spikes will deal 33% of the max HP of grounded Pokémon
  • Toxic Spikes will deal 12.5% of the max HP of grounded Pokémon, and, if possible, poison them (Poison and Steel types are immune to all of this)
  • Sticky Web will severely lower speed
