Shows Sand steam's sandstorm lasting 5 turns before subsiding.

As I said in another post, IMO not the best cure for it. Especially if more drought and drizzle users are available. but it's a nice and very welcome step.

So how do you think this will affect the meta next gen compared to the auto-weather teams of gen V?

Well, it's probably gonna go back to the Gen III standards, albeit a bit stronger concerning weather, since back then you had to use the weather-inducing move. It's a bonus, but I don't think it's enough to stop weahter teams.

Bought Y and I can confirm that at least Sand Stream (so I guess it applies for all) induces a 5 turn Sandstorm. What I don't know is if this is affected by the Rock items. I don't know if they exist at all in XY, but I haven't progressed very far.
