In other games

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

In Red Rescue Team, Blue Rescue Team, Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky, the user will give an opposing Pokémon the Whiffer status. Under the Whiffer status, the opposing Pokémon will always miss with any attack; even moves like Faint Attack or Aerial Ace will miss.

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity and later, Smokescreen will only decrease the accuracy of the Pokémon that it was used on, just as it does in the main series games.

Description

Games Description
MDRB Inflicts the Whiffer status on the target, making it miss almost all of its attacks and moves.
MDGtI It lowers an enemy's accuracy.
SMD It lowers an enemy's accuracy.
