Haze (Japanese: くろいきり Black Mist) is a non-damaging Ice-type move introduced in Generation I.

It appears to be a stat resetting counterpart to Mist, as the type, PP and Japanese names are the same or very similar.

Effect

Generation I

Haze resets the stat stages of both active Pokémon to 0 and removes the stat reductions due to burns and paralysis. It also lifts the effects of Focus Energy and Dire Hit, Mist and Guard Spec., X Accuracy, Leech Seed, Disable, Reflect and Light Screen from both sides of the field. Additionally, Haze cures confusion and turns bad poison into regular poison for both active Pokémon, and also removes any non-volatile status condition from the opponent.

Haze does not remove any non-volatile status ailments that the user has, does not change the generic Minimize graphic back to the Pokémon's regular image, and does not reset either Pokémon's current type, moves, or species.

If a frozen or sleeping opponent has its status removed via Haze, it cannot make a move in the same turn. If a frozen Pokémon that has not recharged from Hyper Beam has its freeze status eliminated via Haze, it will remain unable to attack, switch, or do anything else, and nothing will then be able to change this until it faints or is forcefully switched out.

In Stadium, Haze eliminates any major status ailments that the user has.

Generation II onwards

Haze now only resets the stat stages of all active Pokémon on the field to 0.

Haze can also be used as part of a Pokémon Contest combination, with the user gaining extra three appeal points if either the move Hail or Powder Snow was used in the prior turn.

If powered up by Icium Z into Z-Haze, the user regains all of its HP.
