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.



Event Gen IV
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!"
