Defog (move)

51 bytes removed, 6 April
* The Bag sprite for the HM containing Defog is mistakenly that of a {{type|Water}} HM, rather than a {{type|Flying}} one.
* Like {{m|Flash}} was in Generations {{gen|I}}, {{gen|II}}, and {{gen|III}}, Defog is not critical to the completion of the game, as a player can traverse foggy areas without using the move. However, unlike with dark caves requiring Flash to light them, foggy areas affect battles within them.
* In the anime, Ash sometimes uses his {{APm|PidgeottoGust}}'s and {{AP|Unfezant}}'s {{m|GustWhirlwind}} andhave hissometimes {{AP|Noctowl}}'sbeen {{m|Whirlwind}}used in a similar manner to Defog.
* If a player teaches a Pokémon Defog by HM in {{3v2|Diamond|Pearl|Platinum}} and trades it to HeartGold or SoulSilver, the Pokémon can be freely imported to {{2v2|Black|White}} via the [[Poké Transfer]], due to Defog not being needed outside of battle in HeartGold and SoulSilver. The same can be done with {{m|Whirlpool}} by transferring a Pokémon that learned it by HM in HeartGold or SoulSilver to Diamond, Pearl, or Platinum.
