Mist (Japanese: しろいきり White Mist) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation I.

It appears to be a status protecting counterpart to Haze, as the type, PP, and Japanese names are the same or very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level.


Mist protects the user's team from stat modifications inflicted by the opponent for five turns. Moves used by the opponent that only cause a stat change, such as Growl or Kinesis, will fail; moves that deal damage and lower an opponent's stat, such as Rock Smash and Psychic, still do damage but do not decrease stats. The team is also protected from Abilities that lower stats such as Intimidate.

Mist does not remove any stat modifiers already in effect, does not prevent the stat modifications associated with burn and paralysis, and does not prevent the user or allied Pokémon from lowering their own stats. The effect of Mist can be removed by Defog or Haze (only in Generation I).

Mist will fail if it is already under effect. Mist does not stack with the effect of Guard Spec.
