    Also a small difference, using Hail last only 5 turns, 8 turns with Icy Rock equipped, but Snow Warning creates a permanent Hail storm. Only way to remove Hail from Snow Warning is by using another weather effect.

    Sandstorm gives Hippowdons sp. def a 1.5x boost, so a minimum iv/ev sp. sp. def hippowdon at 84 gets that raised by it's own sandstorm, so 84 x 1.5 = 126.
    Mine has lived through enough surfs and ice beams. Oh it also can get slack off!

    Actually the only pokemon that get a Sand Storm Sp. Def. boost are Rock types. Hippowdon shouldn't be getting a boost.

    Yep, it's true. If that was the case, I'm sure my Garchomp would last longer.
