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

It appears to be a stat protecting counterpart to Haze, as the type, PP, and Japanese names are the same or very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level.

Effect

Generation I

Mist protects the user from having its stats decreased by opponents' status moves until the user switches out. Damaging moves that lower the target's stats as a side effect, such as Acid or Psychic, can still decrease the Pokémon's stats.

Mist does not remove any stat stage changes already in effect, and it does not prevent the user from lowering their own stats. The effect of Mist can be removed by Haze.

Mist will fail if it is already under effect. Mist does not stack with the effect of Guard Spec.

Generation II

Mist protects the user from having its stats decreased by opponents until the user switches out. It applies to both status moves and damaging moves.

Haze can no longer remove the effect of Mist. The effect can be passed with Baton Pass.

Generation III onward

Mist now creates a Mist effect on the user's side of the field that lasts for five turns. All Pokémon on the user's side of the field are protected while Mist is active, including Pokémon switched in after it was created. It is removed if a Pokémon on that side of the field is hit by Defog.

While Mist is in effect, other Pokémon (including allies) cannot lower the stats of Pokémon protected by Mist using either moves or Abilities (e.g. Intimidate). However, it does not prevent Pokémon lowering their own stats.

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