Although other Rock-, Ground-, and Steel-type moves are also affected by the Ability, they cannot be learned by any Pokémon with Sand Force. They may, however, be called via {{m|Metronome}}, {{m|Mirror Move}}, {{m|Copycat}}, or {{m|Mimic}}, or be used by a Pokémon that gained Sand Force by an Ability like {{a|Trace}} or {{a|Receiver}} or a move such as {{m|Skill Swap}} or {{m|Role Play}}.
