===In battle===
====Generations III to V====
Drought summons {{weather|intenseharsh sunlight}} in battle as soon as a Pokémon with Drought enters the battle. Its effects are the same as the move {{m|Sunny Day}}, but instead of lasting for a limited amount of turns, it lasts for the whole battle (unless it is replaced by another weather condition). If a Pokémon with Drought is sent out in the same turn as another Pokémon whose Ability affects the weather, the slower Pokémon's Ability will override the faster Pokémon's Ability.
====Generation VI====
The sunlight now lasts only for five turns. This can be extended to eight turns if the Pokémon is holding a [[Heat Rock]].
If [[Rain|heavy rain]], [[IntenseHarsh sunlight|extremely harsh sunlight]], or [[strong winds]] are present, Drought will fail to activate.
