Haze (Japanese: くろいきり Black Mist) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation I.
It appears to be a status resetting counterpart to Mist, as the type, PP and Japanese names are the same or very similar.
Haze resets the stat levels of both active Pokémon to 0 and removes the stat reductions due to burns and paralysis as well as the effects of Focus Energy, Leech Seed, Light Screen, Mist, Reflect, confusion, Dire Hit, Guard Spec., and the cumulative nature of Toxic for both active Pokémon. In addition, Haze removes any major status ailments from the opponent.
Haze does not remove any major status ailments that the user has, does not change the generic Minimize graphic back to the Pokémon's regular image, and does not reset either Pokémon's current type, moves or species.
If a frozen Pokémon that has not recharged from Hyper Beam has its freeze status eliminated via Haze, it will remain unable to attack, switch, or do anything else, and nothing will then be able to change this until it faints or is forcefully switched out.
In Stadium, Haze eliminates any major status ailments that the user has.
Generation III and on
Unlike previous generations, Haze's effects simply resets the stat levels of both active Pokémon to 0.
Also, now it affects all active Pokémon on the field in a Double Battle and/or Triple Battle.
