The field is rife with sand.


Desert Field is one of the field effects. It appears in sandy areas like the Tourmaline Desert and is the setting of Florinia’s gym battle. Unlike most other field effects, it cannot be summoned by any means, whether by transforming another field or by some combination of moves, nor can it be transformed or terminated by any permanent means.
