Reason: How much does Rainbow Light heal?

There are several weather effects in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series.

The weather can change from floor to floor in the dungeons, and can also be altered through the use of Wonder Orbs.

Effects

In Gates to Infinity, Pokémon will regenerate HP only if the weather is Clear, or if it is holding a Weather Band. In Super Mystery Dungeon and Rescue Team DX, Pokémon can regenerate HP in any weather as long as they do not take damage from the weather condition, or if it is holding a Weather Looplet.

Certain dungeons have random weather effect on specific floors, as seen in the cloudy weather list below.

The Abilities Cloud Nine and Air Lock cause the floor to have ineffective weather as long as there is at least one Pokémon on the floor with either of the aforementioned Abilities. Prior to Gates to Infinity, the Abilities change the weather on the floor to Clear and renders Wonder Orbs, moves, and other Abilities that change the weather useless.
