Effect

If the Pokémon holding this item creates a sandstorm with the move Sandstorm, the Ability Sand Stream, the Ability Sand Spit, or the move Max Rockfall, it lasts eight turns instead of five turns. (Prior to Generation VI, it has no effect on Sand Stream, which creates a sandstorm with indefinite length in those games.)

In the Generation VII games, if a sandstorm has its duration extended by the Smooth Rock, the turn counter on the user interface for these effects will indicate that it lasts for 8 turns for the player whose Pokémon used the move, while it will display that it lasts for 5 turns for their opponent. After 5 turns of sandstorm have passed, the user interface will display that it lasts for 8 turns for both players.
