Man, I keep forgetting this fix this one. Treat Rock-types as having one more level of resistance than normal for type matchups against special moves in a Sandstorm, so Energy Ball would only do 1.5x damage instead of 2x damage to a Golem, and Water Gun would do neutral damage to a Stunfisk. This does not affect typeless moves. I'll update this in the database now.
