Mist Ball (Japanese: ミストボール Mist Ball) is a damage-dealing Psychic-type move introduced in Generation III. It is the signature move of Latias.


Generations III to VII

Mist Ball inflicts damage and has a 50% chance of lowering the target's Special Attack. It does not affect targets with Bulletproof.

Mist Ball can be used as the second move of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining 1 bonus appeal point if Calm Mind was used in the previous turn.

Generation VIII

In Versions 1.0 to 1.2.1 of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Mist Ball could not be selected in a battle. Starting with Version 1.3.0, it is usable and functions the same as it did in previous generations.
