Terrain Alterations

Following on from the introduction of Weather moves in Pokémon Gold & Silver, Pokémon X & Y has introduced a variety of new moves, essentially called Terrain moves. These moves will alter the terrain of the battlefield for 5 turns. During this time, various additional effects can be in place. These effects vary depending upon which terrain move was utilised, and whether or not the Pokémon is actually on the ground. If a Pokémon is Flying-type, or is off the ground, then it will not be affected by the special effects
