Drought(JP) is a Pokémon ability mainly used by Groudon and it makes it sunny weather for a whole entire Pokémon battle when a Pokémon with the ability is sent out. It can be superseded by other weather abilities or moves performed after the Pokémon entered the battle.

Changes between games

With Generation V, Drought was no longer an exclusive ability to Groudon though he was the only one to get it as a normal ability.

With Generation VI, Drought, with the other weather abilities, have been nerfed in that they will only last 5 turns normally and 8 turns with a Heat Rock, basicallly acting as an automatic Sunny Day. In addition, Mega Charizard Y gains this ability. However, with Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, a new stronger version of Drought, Desolate Land, was given to Primal Groudon.
