Misty Terrain (Japanese: ミストフィールド Mist Field) is a non-damaging Fairy-type move introduced in Generation VI.


Generation VI

Misty Terrain creates terrain that envelops the field and replaces the background environment and any other terrain that is already in effect. The terrain fades after five turns.

This terrain has the following effects on Pokémon that are on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move.

  • It prevents affected Pokémon from being afflicted by non-volatile status conditions or Yawn.
    • If an affected Pokémon is already drowsy due to Yawn, it is prevented from falling asleep.
    • Rest will fail if used by an affected Pokémon.
  • It halves the damage taken from Dragon-type moves by affected Pokémon (regardless of whether the user of the move is affected by Misty Terrain).

If Misty Terrain is in effect, Nature Power becomes Moonblast, Secret Power uses the animation of Fairy Wind and may lower its target's Special Attack, and Camouflage causes the user to become Fairy-type. Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Misty Terrain is in effect.

Generation VII

Pokémon affected by Misty Terrain can no longer become confused.

When a Pokémon with the Ability Misty Surge enters battle, Misty Terrain is automatically created.


Games Description
XYORAS The user covers the ground under everyone's feet with mist for five turns. This protects Pokémon on the ground from status conditions.
