Effects

In battle

When an Animal has Overcoat, it does not take damage from weather conditions such as Sandstorm, Hailing as well as powder and spore moves, and Effect Spore.

Outside of battle

Overcoat has no effect outside of battle.

Speculation

Animals may have evolve Overcoat to help certain invertebrates, birds and reptiles to help combat harsh conditions and allow them to live in sandy and wintery places as well as on the ocean.
