Pokémon with the Ability Clear Body and White Smoke will not have their Speed lowered, and Pokémon with the Ability Contrary will instead have their Speed raised by one stage. Sticky Web triggers the effects of the Abilities Defiant and Competitive.
The moves Rapid Spin and Defog remove the effect of Sticky Web; Rapid Spin removes Sticky Web set around the user, while Defog removes Sticky Web set on both sides.
Unlike the other entry hazards present from the core series games, Sticky Web does not produce a trap on the dungeon floor. It instead target's the enemy in front and reduces their Travel Speed. It also makes the enemy's held item sticky.
