    This belongs in the ask a simple question thread- it isn't a discussion.
    Also there is an abilities option for prefixes.

    Ya I know he does. I was wondering if any other pokemon get the ability in Black/White. (Like Ninetails getting Drought now).

    No, no new pokemon (or new dream world abilites) got sandstorm, so only Hippopotas, Hippowdon, and Tyranitar will have sandstream for gen V.

    Sandstorm is going to be even bigger than last gen. Lots more abilities to abuse it, and the two sandstreamers are still big ou threats

    hail wasn't buffed. The 1.5 boost to ice moves and ice type's defense was a myth.
    Seriously do people even skim the research thread? (I keep correcting people about old rumors).

    Simple questions. There is a thread on weather somewhere, so don't discuss here. Check the research thread for rumours like hail.
