Fog (Japanese: きり Fog) is a type of weather that has only appeared in the Generation IV games Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum, as well as Pokémon Battle Revolution. Fog also appears as an overworld-only effect in all games from Generation III onward. In Pokémon Sword and Shield, Fog causes Misty Terrain to occur naturally in battle.
No move or Ability can call fog; it only occurs naturally. In Generation IV, the move Defog removes fog in battle or in the overworld when it is used.
|If naturally occurring||"The fog is deep..."|
|After turn is complete||"The fog is deep..."|
|When dispelling fog with Defog||"<Pokémon> blew away the deep fog with Defog!"|
