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.

Effect

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.

Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Misty Terrain is in effect. Misty Terrain does not prevent Pokémon from being confused.

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.

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.

If powered up by a Fairium Z into Z-Misty Terrain, the user's Special Defense stat rises by one stage.

Generation VIII

Misty Terrain now:

Misty Terrain is automatically created when Max Starfall is used.

Trivia

  • Misty Terrain is the only terrain that does not boost the power of moves of its own type.
    • Instead, it reduces the power of Dragon-type moves used against grounded Pokémon.
