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

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 now also applies to damaging moves.

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

Generation III onwards

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.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series

Mist gives the user the Mist status condition, which prevents other Pokémon from lowering user's Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, evasiveness and accuracy (including stat multipliers from Charm, Aurora Beam, Memento and Screech in the Rescue Team and Explorers series). This status condition lasts for 11-14RBTDS / 21GtISMD turns. Defog will also end the status early if used by an enemy in the Explorers and Adventure Squad series.

Trivia

 
Mist ending in Battle Revolution.
  • Mist displays animation when it ends in Pokémon Battle Revolution.
  • Guard Spec. has the same effect as Mist, and it will even say "the ally was shrouded in mist."
  • In Pokémon Yellow, Vaporeon is programmed to learn both Haze and Mist at level 42; however, a bug prevents a Pokémon from learning two moves at the same level, so Vaporeon cannot learn Mist in Yellow outside of Pokémon Day Care.
  • It appears to be a stat-protecting counterpart to Haze. They have the same type, PP, and Z-Move effect. Moreover, their Japanese names are very similar. They are also usually learned at the same level.
