From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Misty Terrain (Japanese: ミストフィールド Mist Field) is a non-damaging Fairy-type move introduced in Generation VI. It is TM89 in Generation VIII.
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.
- If an affected Pokémon is drowsy due to Yawn, it is prevented from falling asleep.
- Rest will fail if used by an affected Pokémon.
- It halves the power of Dragon-type moves used against 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.
Pokémon affected by Misty Terrain can no longer become confused.
If a Pokémon is holding a Misty Seed while the field is Misty Terrain, it consumes the Misty Seed and its Special Defense is increased by one stage (even if it is not otherwise affected by the terrain).
If a Terrain Extender is held when Misty Terrain is used, the terrain will last 8 turns instead of 5.
When a Pokémon with the Ability Misty Surge enters battle, Misty Terrain is automatically created which lasts for 5 turns (8 if the Pokémon holds a Terrain Extender).
If powered up by a Fairium Z into Z-Misty Terrain, the user's Special Defense stat rises by one stage.
