Defog (Japanese: きりばらい Fog Wipe) is a non-damaging Flying-type move, introduced in Generation IV. It is HM05 in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, moving the traditional HM05, Flash, to TM70. However, in HeartGold and SoulSilver, it loses its HM status in favor of Whirlpool.

Defog cannot be used outside of battle without the Fen Badge in Diamond and Pearl and the Relic Badge in Platinum.

Effect

In battle

Generation IV

Defog lowers the target's evasion one stage, even if the target is behind a substitute. It bypasses accuracy checks to always hit, unless the opponent is in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Fly.

Defog clears away any fog on the field, as well as Light Screen, Reflect, Safeguard, Mist, Spikes, Toxic Spikes and Stealth Rock present on the target's side of the field.

Generation V

Defog can now be reflected with Magic Coat and no longer lowers the evasion of a Pokémon behind a substitute.

Generation VI

Defog now clears away Spikes, Toxic Spikes, Stealth Rock, and Sticky Web present on both sides of the field. It still only clears away Safeguard, Mist, Reflect, and Light Screen from the target's side of the field.

Generation VII

Defog now clears away Aurora Veil present on the target's side of the field.

If powered up by a Flyinium Z into Z-Defog, the user's accuracy raises one stage.

Out of battle

In Generation IV, Defog clears away fog from the area. The effect lasts until the player leaves the area.

Defog has no effect on the purely aesthetic fog in Generations V and VI.

Trivia

  • The Bag sprite for the HM containing Defog is mistakenly that of a Water-type HM, rather than a Flying-type one.
  • Like Flash was in Generations I, II, and III, Defog is not critical to the completion of the game, as a player can traverse foggy areas without using the move. However, unlike with dark caves requiring Flash to light them, foggy areas affect battles within them.
  • In the anime, Ash sometimes uses his Pidgeotto's and Unfezant's Gust and his Noctowl's Whirlwind in a similar manner.
  • If a player teaches a Pokémon Defog by HM in Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and trades it to HeartGold or SoulSilver, the Pokémon can be freely imported to Black and White via the Poké Transfer, due to Defog not being needed outside of battle in HeartGold and SoulSilver. The same can be done with Whirlpool by transferring a Pokémon that learned it by HM in HeartGold or SoulSilver to Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum.
