With this new ability, do you think that the Pokémon would lose the STAB that they had originally? If so, I think you've just thought of a way to make a move similar to Soak or Reflect Type competitively viable.
Pretty much. The "gimmick" is that the pokemon is turned into Gold-type, which can either be just Neutral to everything, OR can be "functionally" steel as described (mainly to get the fire and fighting weaknesses).
I kind of want a new status, Petrify
, rock-aligned, which turns the pokemon into rock type and makes it unable to move until it's hit/switched out. It wouldn't work on rock or ground types, and there would be "thawing" moves in water and grass that negated it???
Also, making Frozen "undo" when switched out or hit with a move would allow it to be less overwhelmingly dumb... but would basically make it just Petrify, so either or.

Doesn't Air Lock prevent all weather, not just clear it? If it doesn't, it should.
