Per talk. The history shows repeated mishandling of this point; it was written well before Gen 7 and appears to be, and have always been, fully false.
{{spading|In battle|comment=Is it confirmed in Generation VI and V that a Pokémon will not take damage with Levitate from a Pokémon using Sky Drop?}}
===In battle===
Levitate renders the Pokémon with this Ability immune to damaging {{type|Ground}} moves (except {{m|Thousand Arrows}}) and, since Generation VII, damage from {{m|Sky Drop}}. It also is unaffected by the effects of {{a|Arena Trap}}, {{m|Spikes}}, {{m|Toxic Spikes}}, {{m|Sticky Web}}, {{m|Rototiller}}, and [[terrain]]. Additionally, a {{type|Poison}} Pokémon with Levitate cannot remove Toxic Spikes.
These immunities are lost during {{m|Gravity}} or if the Pokémon with Levitate is holding an {{DL|In-battle effect item|Iron Ball}}, is under the effects of {{m|Ingrain}}, or has been hit by {{m|Smack Down}} or {{m|Thousand Arrows}}. This Ability can also be suppressed by {{m|Gastro Acid}} or ignored by {{a|Mold Breaker}}, {{a|Teravolt}}, or {{a|Turboblaze}}.
